Happy New Year!

What’s up, blogosphere?! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

For those of you who have been regulars to this platform, welcome back to another bright new year. For my new followers, thank you for visiting me and choosing to be part of my journey! You can read a little bit about me here.

For the past three-ish years, this blog was like a online journal for me. It started off as a writer’s platform, but gradually molded to a more personal blog as my priorities changed. This year, I do not expect that to change by a lot. However, given that I started a new YouTube channel, I will be re-visiting what I want to share through this space. I have been writing for a long time and my love for that has by no means reduced. However, I do want to explore other avenues of self-expression and the vlog came out naturally out of that want.

I’ll surely talk about that in detail once I have a plan ready.

As I mentioned in the last post, I expect 2018 to be a happy, warm new year. I have my resolutions all noted down. The broad themes are:

  1. Health – Gym! Gym! Gym!
  2. Eat healthy
  3. Maintain minimalist lifestyle
  4. 10K subscribers on YouTube by 2018 end
  5. Travel to at least three places
  6. Give something back to the society
  7. Be more social

I think the last point will be my focus for 2018. I have worked a lot on my communication last year. I called up a lot of folks yesterday and caught up with their life. This year, I want to meet more people personally and share and understand their stories.

In fact, I have been toying with the idea of having a bloggers’ get-together for a while now. So, if someone of you are in Bangalore and think that such a meet might be a good idea, please let me know. I’d love to catch up.

Will be back with more posts in the coming days. Until later, take care and spread some love!


Happy New Year!

A very happy new year to the readers of Scribbles@Arpita! Hope the new year is treating you well thus far!

We had a small meeting in office last Friday regarding New Year Resolutions. I said I am going to travel more. The plans are also somewhat in motion – end January, I am going to Pondicherry! The only thing is I don’t want to fall sick or something bad to happen that makes us cancel the plan. I know two people who got chicken pox very recently. I am kind of worried about that – but I am trying to contain my fear.

I have also bought a small travel journal to document my travels. I will be showing it off in another post very soon! I am looking at a pay raise starting this month and the thought of some extra money which I can use to travel is really exciting me!

As to resolutions, I know they often don’t work out. I have made them in the past but was never 100% successful in maintaining them. So yeah, I stopped having resolutions. But every year, January fills me with new hopes. January gives me the courage to think that I can make a new beginning. That I can throw away all the bad that happened in the past year and start with a clean slate. That’s pretty romantic, isn’t it? Or it’s probably me watching too much of The Beauty and the Beast on Amazon Prime!

Let me know what you did the last week. Did you travel or meet friends/family? Or did you party hard? And even though most of us do not really make resolutions, but I am interested in knowing what changes you are hoping to make in your life this year. Share your thoughts with me!

Happy New Year!

Here’s to new hope, wishes, dreams and expectations! Here’s to success and memories! May happiness be yours this year!

For me, new avenues are opening in the job and we are soon going to transform to complete corporate people from bubbly college graduates. The good part is the work is interesting (so far that is), and I hope I will do some great things in the coming future and learn some cool stuff and grow as an individual.

Of course, it is that time of the year where resolutions are being scribbled in planners or good old notebooks. I have had resolutions for the last couple of years, and found that after the first 15 days, it holds no value to me any longer. So, this year, I have no resolution! I don’t wanna limit myself by the strictness of a few points on the Resolution page. But enough about me. There is so much freedom in a blank page: you can just about scribble anything in there!

What about you? Do you have a resolution? Do share with me in the Comments below!
