At the end of the year, I started panicking about my short-term goals – basically the mid-life crisis. I bought GMAT book and thought of preparing for MBA, or even a job-change, but the lazy me did not allow even a wisp of air to that thought. I did work towards updating the resume but nothing materialized.
At work, after missing promotion in the last cycle, I was really glad to be promoted end of December. It was dicey till the last moment but was I not glad to clear the hurdle this time around. However, the promotion basically blew away the MBA or job-change plans and led me to the crazy road trip with Sumeet during Christmas break – we simply drove covering 1200 miles in less than 48 hours, but it was good to get away.
We celebrated New Years at Allentown with all the usual cousins and had a great time. I wished 2012 to be a better year and hopefully change the tide for even better days.
