Dear 2010s…


It is not just the end of 2019 but also the end of a decade.

Dear 2010s

I was 14 when you arrived. I was a naive school kid back then. Today, I am a mature adult. I remember how much I yearned to grow up just to escape studies. And now? I received my postgraduation degree 10 days ago but I don’t want the learning to come to an end. So, I am already pursuing a second postgrad course.

I loved having a big group of friends when I was a child. But today, I prefer to keep only a couple of people close. I take my time to know people and then let them enter my zones of comfort.

But I don’t think that everything has changed. I was unsure what I wanted to do in life and I am unsure today too (but I do have short term goals now). You know what’s the good thing about being unsure about life today? I am not scared of life as I was 10 years ago.

There have been lots up ups and downs. Good decisions and bad decisions. I have taken all of them as lessons of life.

You know what? You were like a dramatic novel for me- with a beginning, a middle and an end. Life throwing difficulties on an innocent child who somehow managed to face them and come out as a stronger person. And I am ready for a sequel.

All in all, you were good. Thankyou!

I don’t think I’d be able to bid you a goodbye so soon. I know I’ll be mistaking the date as 2019 for about a month at least.

But still, Welcome 2020sc… I am ready to start afresh! Let’s begin…

    1. Oh wow! Thank God that I’m the only one. All I’ve heard people say is how could you even go for a master’s degree after the bachelor’s. And now that it’s a second masters, I really have no answers to people’s questions 😂 Happy New Year!
