Year 2016 came to me as a great opportunity. It is the month of July, we are standing in the middle of the year and while I replay the cassette of this year from beginning, there are many things I am grateful for, there are many lessons this year taught me. During the year I have found myself matured than before.
I became a bibliophile, A happy soul during the time. -There have been two trips during the mid-year for a relax break. -This is the year when I joined Blogchatter and met so many blog buddies.
So this post is dedicated to #Throwback mid-year 2016.
On the night of 31st December when everyone was eagerly waiting for the New Year to begin, I was in wonderland, enjoying a powerful nap on my cosy bed. Then I woke up next morning to greeting everyone and seeking blessings of family and God.
Things that is common for all months –
1.) Reading and purchasing new books.
2.) Getting common cold or sickness.
3.) Writing blog posts.
4.) Twitter and Instagram
6.) Family time
7.) During the mid-year I have promised myself to develop healthy eating habits and stay healthy.
8.) Feeding sparrows with chapatti, grains and water.
9.) Clicking Sunrises
10.) Watering and talking to my house plants.
During the chilled month of January, the thing that I did most was reading books.
I had plans to visit my native place Assam, but due certain circumstances we had to cancel the tickets. On 2nd of January I won a giveaway by Lenro Books in which I was allowed to choose any 12 books of my choice. I was on cloud 9 and selected for me the books that were in my mind from a very long time.
This was an indication by God. Dear child start reading and make your life a better placed to live.
During the month which is officially dedicated to love, three main things that I remember is –
1.) A trip to Hyderabad – During the month I had a trip to Hyderabad. We were 200 of family members and were travelling from Rajasthan via train. The journey was total fun, with lots of songs and wedding celebrations along with dance, selfies and cousins made my journey very memorable. I enjoyed the royal welcome of Hotel Marriot of Hyderabad and this is the view from rooftop of the hotel –
2.) I met a social friend for the first time – I interacted with her for the first time when we won together a twitter contest of #WhenOnlyLoveRemains which earned us the autograph of our common crush Durjoy Datta.
Girls and crush, nothing could be better reason than this to initiate the conversation and from that day onwards we became best buddies and we had made plans to meet each other for real once in a lifetime and our dream came true when we had a meeting with each other finally a day before her birthday.
Friends and Only best friends are meant to understand each other no matter them stay together or not.
3.) Blogchatter and Blog buddies –
Everyone who owns a blog should we well aware about Blogchatter.
They are a World Wide Web blogging community who makes our blogging life a lot easier and luckily I am proud being a part of the community. Blogchatter is all efforts and dreams of Dearest Richa Ji.
She works hard to make us understand everything related to blogging.

I also got introduced to Rangroute, and I must say they are wonderful people with brilliant ideas.They are keeping alive the handicrafts of India by innovating tricks and colours.
Their bonding with colours is similar to the bonding of butterflies with the flowers.
This was the busiest month of the year. This month I had written and edited 30 blog posts and interacted with a huge blogging audience internationally. I still remember that posting sharp at 00:00 and that tired sleepy eyes taunting me to bless them with some sleep.
My blog stats during the month of April was just super awesome.
And I found super awesome blogging women when o went through their styles of writing –

Meeting these awesome people with their advanced thoughts relating to zee things in life made my 2016 a better place.
Always thankful to them .
The month of my birthday, my crush’s birthday and exam month…the third one was not at all fun. Birthdays are always full of excitement weather it is our birthday or others birthday as we get to enjoy drinks and indulge in happiness dancing on disco bands. I had gala time with my family celebrating my birthday. Then coming to exam they went well but the summer of Jaipur made me very sick and I was heat stricken.
Luckily I survived because of coconut water.
During the Month my first ebook AZ Scrribles came to the world and I had awesome reviews of the book.
The past month came with many reasons to celebrate –
1. It was the month of Mom Dad 25th wedding Anniversary – The time to party big and learn from the wonderful couple to walk together in the journey of life.
2. During June, I got a new autograph to my collection that is of Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.
3. I had a trip to Vrindawan.
There is a surprise post coming your way relating to Vrindawan trip.
4. I started going for morning walk waking up at 4:30 a.m. and going to bed early.
5. I read the master book Harry Potter for the first time, before I just watched the movies.
Every line of the book is written for a reason and Ayeee I can confess this is my favourite book.
6. The month has been One year blogging anniversary for my blog.
Special mention to Rahul –
He is the one who is the first one to read my blogs and tells me good and bad things about it.
He is salman khan fan, a foodie, coffee lover and a very humble person.
He knows me more than myself.
Last one not the least I am grateful to everyone who loves me.
I thought nothing is changed, I looked back everything was CHANGED.
This is my Inking Reflections of #Halftime2016
