This year has been one of the fullest years in my life. A new job, a new home, exciting work projects and hope for even better.
But, above all that, there was the loss of my dearest friend. This will forever remain the year when I lost Tommy, and nothing could cast a light big enough to minimize this shadow. Being in touch with his wonderful mother and sister has helped me cope with the pain, but how great it would have been to meet them in happy circumstances and not like this! We are all waiting anxiously for January, when Tommy’s murderer will be on trial. Hopefully, justice will be made, but nothing can fill the void created in our lives.
I have not given up on making New Year’s resolutions, because, what do you know, a few of the ones I made last year did come true. No matter what the cynics say, I love this feeling of a new beginning. For next year, I want to continue my work projects, volunteer (for which I have already made arrangements), get a Canadian degree, live a healthier lifestyle and go to Romania to see my family.
Love has mostly been in limbo in 2012, but there have been sweet moments here and there, for which I am grateful. I took a break from the dating scene and I think I will stay on this break for a few more months.
I hope everybody has a wonderful 2013! Happy New Year!
