As much as this occasion will prevail, win me over and force me to shamelessly scribble a list of resolutions such as save money, lose weight and finish a novel - my relationship with years of failure will somehow sneak in.
They say ignorance is bliss, and I now believe expectancy is letdown.
So let me take this New Year celebration as an opportune time to start being a little more blithe, and disentangle the minute things that worry me. *
Now that that’s said, my New Years Eve was quite frothy and merry.
I spent a spontaneous beginning brunching away in pyjama bottoms with friends from the building, and then had to eeny meeny miny my way out of 3 different sorts of Swiss cake in the evening. Balloons and sunset went pretty well together for my post napping activity. ** And thereafter, so casually and frivolously did our last night of 2012 come.
The neighbors and I spent midnight gathering together on the rooftop, eating drinking and exchanging our experiences and highlights. With fireworks going off from the next terrace, our bums weren’t ready to move for a very long time. ***
So those were my NYE highlights (simplicity at its best), wishing the universe a late New Years wish from Dhaka city – eat cake, dance and have a thrilling year!
With love, Parisa.
* Did I again just create another resolution? What a sly act of cognition.
** Unfortunately I got to capture only one shot of my day, that too during a trip to fresh air.
*** Until 4 am we spoke in our tipsy selves, blatantly about ‘life’. Despite the matter being completely laughable as of now, I still had a very buoyant and gleeful night!
