Auld Lang Syne

It has become a tradition for me to spend the last day of the year looking back at what I’ve done and putting down my thoughts for the year on my blog. Today is no exception.

2011 went pass a bit too quickly. I was looking back at my old blog entries and was kinda shocked that some things that happened mid/early this year felt like they happened just a few months back. It is a constant reminder to me that time wait for no man. I need to treasure time more for I’m no longer young.

I find myself focusing a lot on work this year. 2011 is a big year at my work place. We made great progress this year and set the foundation for even greater things to come. It can be frustrating sometimes but I know end of the day everything is worth it. I’m glad to be part of a great team that is breaking new grounds every day. In fact, I can’t wait to see what challenges 2012 might bring.

And like last year, I still have no idea what I will be doing tonight. Maybe at home infront of my computer with a nice glass of wine. Or alone among the crowd at Marina Bay watching the fireworks. Or somewhere totally unexpected. I’ll let fate decide where it wants to bring me tonight…

Happy 2012 everyone. If you are out partying, party safe. As always, I’ll end the last blog post of the year with the song Auld Lang Syne. Cheers to 2011!

Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis – Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup !
And surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

    I love this song. Lea Michele’s rendition of it was probably the only good thing to have come of the New Year’s Eve film. Have you ever heard the traditional version from Dougie MacLean? Very beautiful.
