Happy New Year!

I'm so glad to be leaving 2013 behind! For the most part, this year didn't start off great, especially for my family. On Jan. 1, my mother's other sister passed away after suffering a stroke shortly after Christmas 2012. Then in July of this year, my mom's oldest niece died. That makes four deaths within the span of two years. :-(

I tried conquering my main nemesis, which was a particular college math course; however, it didn't quite happen in the spring, but I finally passed it two weeks ago! I'm happy to say that I'll never have to take this subject ever again!

I worked with two organizations and did some volunteer work for them this year. The first one resulted into a part-time job and the second one began this summer, but ended two weeks ago. The latter volunteer position was one I had been waiting for since I was 13-years-old. I'm so grateful for having been given these opportunities in which I was able to learn a few things from. 

Lastly, this year (once again) didn't bring me love--aka The One--but it gave me time to reflect on the good things that happened to me, as well as the bad things that happened. With the start of 2014, it will be a time for new goals, new opportunities and hopefully much more.

Have a Happy New Year...one that's filled with good health, joy and prosperity!  :-)
