A pretty productive year for me- I got a degree, married, my driver's license and a car. I'm incredibly excited to end it in Puerto Rico and start the new year there as well. Looking back, this year was full of ups and downs, gains and losses, and new life lessons. Grateful for the past and looking forward to the future, I can't wait to see what 2012 brings. Happy New Year!
They say good things come to those who wait so does that apply to our ailing economy? I was pretty much on the money with my predictions for 2010. Well, 2010 has come and gone and now just around the corner is 2011. There's a lot coming up in the political arena because of the upcoming 2012 Presidential election.

2010 was a very good year for me. I was knocking down obstacles left and right for awhile during that timespan. In fact, 2010 was setting up 2011 to be an even better year.

It was fun getting to visit Asia again in 2011 (despite it was more business) but I do hope to a better 2012! 2 days Before Dec. 21, 2012 (the supposed end times predicted by some folks), I will tell all the women I had a crush … more
A very volatile year with many natural disasters with the Japanese tsunami one of the saddest. Other than there, there is the earthquakes in Christchurch, floods in Thailand and Philippines. Some famous people passed away (Taylor and Jobs) and the European crisis still unresolved. Generally quite an uneventful year for me but peace is all that anyone can ask for these days! I'm not looking forward to 2012 at all since there had been many adverse predictions!
