A comic on awesomeness

It has been very long (>2 years) since I last blogged. My last post was in May 2014 and I even removed "Blogging" from my hobbies list. My Twitter account now has a boring bio like every other guy. Finally I decided to end this drought and write something.

The easiest way to make my lazy self to do it, is to just rehash an old post as a new one. In June 2011, I wrote a post titled "In Pursuit of Awesomeness - Things I did" . Instead of updating post, I am writing this new one with the things added from the last time. 3 years is a long period and I should have been doing (?) many things that are in my bucket list - Luckymurari's 30 under 30 .Here is the updated list of things I did.
