So Long 2002 Durable Link to this BLOG
2002 Wouldn't End Too Soon

This has been a lousy year for me and I am ready to start my next year.

In fact, this week, I started living my life like it is 2003. Starting everything I wanted to do next year right now, and stopping everything I wanted to stop at the end of this year.

First I took a lesson at Home Depot on how to install wooden flooring. Although I am an engineer by education, the lesson was intimidating because I didn't even know the basic terminologies (what is plug flooring?). But I am going to give it a shot, remembering Gandhi's famous quote "Work with the hands is the apprenticeship of honesty and a recognition of fellow humans' toiling." I think work with my hands (rather than my mind) will do me a lot of good.

Then, I decided to take my tennis to the next level and have been learning the kick-serve (1- 2). It will be a while before I get good at it, but I am determined. Mastering kick-serve is a goal for 2003.

Later this week, I will hit the road for long drive, a long weekend, and find my mojo.

I am going to try to talk Hiryoung into building a publicly releasable versions of Remokon software and Blogging engine.

Upon my return, I'm going to review, renegotiate or cancel our content agreements with Times of India and Zee Education. It is not working out.

See, the next year has begun for me!
