It’s never the same. No year is similar to the one it follows or the one it proceeds. Each year brings different experiences, new joys, new sorrow, new lessons. It’s all in how you perceive it.

Three years ago around this time, I was planning and working on starting this blog. I started it without any prospect on how it will grow or what will happen to it. I still kind of don’t, but I’m still blogging for the joy of it. Continue reading

Vacation is over but memories linger.

I will try not to get carried away and reduce the blabber and the storms of thoughts in my head so that I’m able to sum up my vacation, in which I will be surely not giving justice.
