That didn’t take long at all. Seems like it was just yesterday I was mulling over a day like this. For many, day of reflection. A day of resolution for some. For those in the job world, a public holiday from the heavens.
2010 was a wild, wild ride. Where do I even begin to describe it. I originally planned a mega-post looking back at the year, blow by blow, and to end everything with a blast. But as always, things got ahead of me and that post-to-be never came into fruition. All year long post ideas came and went. At times I’d wonder if blogs are still relevant now with Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter taking over online self-expression. Yet here I am, back in my old liar, figuring out how to make up for my most inactive year in blogging yet.
I thought I’d updated when I got myself a new phone back in May to replace my 3-year-old W810i.
Then I thought I’d show off my latest addition to my arsenal of lenses: the amazing Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM in October.
In November, I figured I would update about my awesome, spiritually enriching trip to Japan.
Then in December, I had planned to churn another mega post to depict the mega flop that was our Mechatronics Systems Design project: a Rubik’s cube solver robot.
This was easily the letdown of the year. So much hope and effort was put into building this that we couldn’t accept failure; nor could we see it coming. But our final demonstration was a flop, and writing about it now still leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Nonetheless, along with teammates Wilfred and Kheng Shin, building it was great fun and despite everything MSD is still one of my favourite subjects yet.
2010 though, was so much more than what I had hoped to blog about. But as they say, ‘What happened in 2010, stays in 2010′.
I almost forgot how it’s like becoming a Facebook wall zombie; enslaved by replying to a bottomless pit of wall postings coming in all day. And getting sore thumbs from all that texting. But on a day like this, you wouldn’t mind.
For today’s the day I turn twenty-one.
Goodbye 2010; Happy 2011!
