out with a bang

I can’t believe it’s already 2013. It’s been such a whirlwind of a December that I just haven’t had the time to make compilation posts of about my favourite moments of 2012, and all my wishes and hopes for 2013. I’ll do that soon. Right after Christmas I went off for three days to a college activity; a retreat for this group I’m a part of. Think of it as students’ council, but the Arts division. Yeah, that’s something that’s going to be a huge part of my year.

I have to say, though, I’ve had a wonderful New Years’ Eve.  I’ve never been much of a party person, but every New Years’ Eve for as long as I can remember, I have met up with the same group of family friends and celebrated the last hours of the year and the first few of the new year. Over the years the number of people have dwindled, but the sheer joy of spending time with these people cannot be quantified, even by photographs. Our party this year was held at our place, because it was too rainy to have it at a park, and that meant I wouldn’t be putting the life of my DSLR in jeopardy by bringing it out into possibly rainy weather. This year I found myself fascinated by the laughter echoing off the walls of the function room we were in. It was heartening, and just so great to be surrounding by people cackling, scoffing, and literally erupting and bursting into laughter. I’ve missed that more than I realised in 2012.

2This is one of my best friends. Our grandfathers are best friends in Mumbai, we love soup, and she is my co-host on my college radio show.

3I love her laughter. And her new glasses.

4This fellow cracks me up.

5Happiness!

6I wondered why she looked so sad.

8Okay, she’s happy again! All is well!

9Happily confused.

11My favourite sisters. I always take a photo of them together just because.

12More laughter!

14Then we had a quiz about news from 2012.
