Goals & Objectives . . . .

As I started to write (blog) on this Thanx Giving, I figures I might as well write down my goals / objectives.

Trying to become a better human being is always before / above all. But this is not quite as measurable, unfortunately. But the following are:
  • Profession / Career -
  • Financial independence - Need to become less dependent on my current profession / career. To this end, I need to find alternate sources of income.

Thanx Giving '04 . . . .

I [really] wanted to do it this year, but we got invited by some friends and I kinda chickened out :o(

But, be that as it may, I am Thankful this year to have achieved [somewhat] 1 of my goals / objectives. The other 2 - 3 are coming along very slowly. Completing the first goal wil definitely make 1 of the other much more doable.

Hopefully, this time next year, I'll be able to say that at least 2 of the other 3 are complete.

New Job . . . .

When I started my job hunt, I was a bit frustrated because I wasn't sure how long it'd take. It took 'bout 5-6 weeks.

I'm gald (and quite excited) to have found this position. I really do like what I've seen so far and am looking forward to starting in less than 2 weeks.

Reality TV . . . .

It took "The Big Loser" and "Wife Swap" to get me to get into Reality Show (not very proud of it, but that is true). Before these 2 shows came on, I've never really watched or followed Reality TV a whole lot. Nothing really against Reality TV, it's more a tiiming thing. I don't really like to watch TV before 10-10:30. The only shows I'll before then would beshows that I was already hooked on. For example, I watched "Seinfeld", "Mad About You", "Fraiser" (as well as many other sitcoms) during their regular time, but never watched "er" or "Law & Order".

The Big Loser - This show got my attention because I can identify with the participants. Since over weight is such a huge issue - I can totally see this show doing fairly well in the ratings. Of course, they could still screw it up by taking it too far or by not maintaining the balance.

Wife Swap - This show is of course the classic "the grass is greener on the other side" mentality.

Eid-Ul-Fitr . . . .

Another year of Ramadan has come and almost gone by. Seem like it just got started the other days and now it's almost over. We'll have to wait another 11 month before the next Ramadan. In this time a lot will change (as always). For me, personally, it will mean 2 daughters who are a bit older and, for Ritika specially, probably more interested in learning about fasting and why we observe it when most of the others around us do not.
