2011 had been a great year and it just ended. I thought of publishing my year end review for 2011 as I did for the previous years.
Well do I have to explain anything more? 😉
For those who are still staring at the picture, yes I am “formally” engaged now 🙂 My marriage is going to be on Feb 6th 2012 (Just another 21 days to go)
Other highlights in 2011
Apart from the big personal update the following are some of the other highlights of 2011.
I started of the year by changing the permalink of my blog, had a most memorable day on top of a hill, released my first Arduino library, met my idol Doug for the first time in person, went to a couple of HackU events, released my gist-it WordPress Plugin, bought an interesting toy, created my pet bot Asimi, gave a couple of talks and finally experienced snowfall for the first time in my life.
On the travel front I had a pretty good year. Following are some of my travel highlights
- Had a couple of treks
- Had an awesome bike ride across Karnataka
- Went to Malaysia
- Travelled to Kanpur, Delhi and Madras IITs
- Went to Goa for team outing
- Went to US on a Business trip and spent the weekends in SFO and LA
- Experienced my first snowfall
- And finally ended the year by going to Waynad on Christmas day.
The following are my blog stats generated by my Year End stats WordPress Plugin.
At the starting of 2011, I wanted to increase the average size of the blog post that I write and I have succeeded in that.
But, when compared with the previous years, I have written fewer posts. Getting committed, travelling places and what else you can expect 😉
With me getting married in 2012 I am not sure how much free time I will get, but I will definitely try my best to increase the count in 2012.
What’s in the card for 2012?
I am planning to spend more time on Android and Arduino stuff and also planning to enhance my pet bot Asimi. So expect some news about some cool projects. 😉
Well, from the personal front, I am going to get married in 2012. Not sure what to expect out of it, but I am eagerly waiting for it. It’s kind of really exciting to realize that you have finally found someone with whom you are going to spend the rest of your life. 🙂
So how was 2011 for you?
