So, despite the various alternatives that I had to ‘ring’ in the New Year, I preferred to do it in a way that others found boring.
On week days I have a very crappy schedule, leaving me with not enough sleep (I heard that 8 hours should be enough, but I get around 4-5hrs) and I try to make up for the same on Sundays and holidays. And I did just that!
I went to bed early and read a Mills and Boons book (now in hindsight I realize that it was probably a bad idea and maybe I should stay away from romantic books for a while). Since the night was young, I decided that maybe I should stay awake longer because I had the next day off.
While surfing for songs on a popular music app, I found a playlist that read, ‘New Year pe akele’ which translates to being alone on New Year’s. I thought it would probably have some peppy numbers to cheer people up, but no, it had all the sad songs from atleast 10 years back and surprisingly when I sang along to them, I remembered the lyrics! To the T! 😀
And I sang and sang and sang at the top of my voice till I managed to wakeup everyone at home and exhausted my voice, finally tired, I slept. But that definitely wasn’t the end of my New Year party.
I got a text from him yesterday asking me to change the password of my email id and that he had opened it by mistake, I’m surprised how that one line text message ended up digging out so many memories.
I dreamt of an entire 5 hour conversation with him, his replies are still embedded in my head and the stupid part is that I didn’t want the conversation to end, not because we were talking something nice, pleasant and romantic but because we were talking. Something we hadn’t done since May, since he left.
After many sleepless nights, it was finally two weeks back that I could sleep, if not for an entire night then atleast for a few hours but unfortunately I’m back to square one of sleepless nights once again.
Not such a great start to the year, but let’s hope that it gets better…
