What did you do in 2007 that you'd never done before?
Attended University, started working.

Did you keep your New Years resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't make resolutions- 1st January is way overrated. If I make up my mind to do something, I do it, and it doesn't need to be a promise made for the New Year, it can be anytime.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
Does my cat count?

Did anyone close to you die?
No. Thankfully.

What places did you visit?
New Delhi, Agra, Kathmandu.

What would you like to have in 2008 that you lacked in 2007?
A lot more knowledge and maturity, and some more wisdom. Maybe a computer that works decently, too. :P

What date from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Quite a few of them.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Getting 97 in Elective English, making my foray into journalism, and getting into JUDE!

What was your biggest failure?
Flunking ED Drama, the results are yet to de declared, though I still know I've failed. :P

Did you suffer illness or injury?
Had viral fever.

What was the best thing you bought?
I didn't buy much for myself, though I did buy a rather nice stone bracelet. But I got some awesome presents. I gave my mom this very nice calendar though, and my brother a great T-shirt.

Whose behaviour merited celebration?
My brother's!

Whose behaviour made you appalled and/or depressed?
Nobody's, really.

Where did most of your money go?
Transport, CDs, shopping.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?
The first day of University!

What song will always remind you of 2007?
Shiny Toy Guns- Le Disko, Era - Enae Volare, Daft Punk- Digital Love, and a few others.

Compared to this time last year, are you happier or sadder?
I'm always pretty happy!

Thinner or fatter?
I'd say the same, but everyone else says I've lost weight.

What do you wish you'd done more of?

What do you wish you'd done less of?
Wasting time. :P

How will you be spending Christmas?
With family.

Did you fall in love in 2007?
Everytime I hear his voice, I fall in love again.

How many one night stands?
None. I don't believe in them.

What was your favourite TV programme?
Desperate Housewives and Friends!

Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
'Hate' is too strong a word. 'Dislike' is more appropriate.

What was the best book you read?
Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein', definitely!

What was your greatest musical discovery?
Rolling Stones, Meatloaf, and a few individual tracks.

What did you want and get?
Good Board results, acceptance into JUDE, digital camera, new phone, trip to Delhi-Agra, loads of other things.. (It's been a good year for me!)

What did you want and not get?
A new computer (so far), and to keep Kombol.

What was your favourite film of this year?
Ratatouille, definitely!

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Turned 19, went to college, took friends out for lunch at Tollygunge Club, met boyfriend and friend in the evening. A lovely birthday!

What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Nothing. I wouldn't want to change anything about it.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007?
Smart, like always. :)

What kept you sane?
Having my family and friends with me- but when I'm in the mood, nothing can keep me sane.

Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
None really, they're all too self-obsessed for my taste.

What political issue stirred you the most?
Stirred as in irritated? Mamata Banerjee- that woman is a political issue all by herself. And stirred as in moved? The complete breakdown of law and order in the State, and the constant supply of Bandhs!

Who did you miss?
Guppy, Tanima, and Height (as usual).

Who was the best new person you met?
A, S, P.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2007.
Everything you give comes back to you. Good or bad.

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"So what's it gonna take? Silver shadow believer.... Spock rocker with your dirty eyes. It’s a chance, gonna move, gonna fuck up your ego... Silly boy gonna make you cry!" :)

@ Clouds: Chup kor- you've lost weight yourself!

@ Rajarshi: I shall, if you bring me back something nice. :)

@ Doubletake, Doublethink: Don't stress so much over it- the exams will be done before you know it. Do the tag though- it's good fun.
