And just like that, I now have my very own web hosted blog.

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get down to it and it’s like I’ve opened myself up to a whole new world of geeky fun. There are so many things I want to tweak and so many things I wonder if I can do, and I know I can and I want to learn how to do it now, now, now! Hubba always wonders why he’s not working in the car industry and with cars when he loves engines so much, and this kind of makes me wonder why I’m not doing something with web programming. I get so excited with what little knowledge I have…. Learned geeks, you are truly empowered people!

Anyway, on to thoughts of the New Year.

Well, the last two years have been one helluva ride, I gotta say. I am utterly amazed by how quickly time can fly by you when you’re busy, and how your physical being can be affected by a stressed state of mind. There are definitely no regrets but I just feel like 2010 is going to be a start of a new and beautiful adventure. I have really learnt the beauty of friendship and respect in 2009 and well, all I can say is that I am a very lucky person to have so many supportive people around me.

Thanks to all my family and friends who have tolerated me in 2009, who have berated me when I’ve needed it, who’ve stuck by me when I’ve been through weird phases. I want to be a better friend, sister, daughter and wife in 2010. Life is short and Andrew & I are always looking to live it to the fullest, so having you around makes it all the more worth living!

Thanks for the good times and the lessons, 2009.

I don’t know what 2010 is going to bring. I am slightly uncertain about what’s ahead of me. But you know what? BRING IT ON! I want to see it all, I want to feel it all.

Happy New Year to you all. I wish you all the blessings in the world this end of year. Have a good one!

But please don’t drink and drive tonight.

    Hey Janice! (:

    I was wondering what App you’re using for your recent photos on Flickr? Or did you apply some Photoshop magic to them? (:

  16. admin says:

    @karen yeah, he totally is. he can’t stop thinking about anything with wheels or an engine. it sometimes gets frustrating but i tell myself it’s better than having other vices haha!

    Hi Janice, this is totally random but I’ve been following your blog for some time now and I just had to have my 16 year-old Labrador Retriever put down today and I’m feeling completely depressed so I just wanted to tell you to give your dogs lots of hugs today! Love them like there’s no tomorrow! I wish you and your dogs the best of health this year.
