“So how was 2008 for you?”
Other then the “how was 31st eve?” OR “Any New year resolutions?”, people somehow never fail to ask this…whatI generally do is just smile and say something acceptable.

Trying to find reasons not to believe.
Working with a vengeance I never knew was possible in me.

Seeing my cherished hope for months coming to life and then brutally getting shattered..all in a 2 minutes time.

Hoping that I have learned never to hope again…knowing all along its futile.
Ignoring phone calls, SMSes, Messenger pings…and actually not feeling bad about it.
