Year Of The Fig

Two Thousand And Ten! Also known as 2010 :P The start of a new decade, the start of new and better things to come. Or at least thats what I am hoping for anyways.

Before I go any further, let me just say that I will continue my story about Amber and I another day. I know i started it a while back and its already been about 3 or so weeks since I blogged again! I was kind of in another country :P so I had an excuse for not carrying on.

On the 16th of December, after travelling from SA -> Germany -> Portugal -> Madeira I finally stepped off the plane, and onto the island that I originate from. My father was born in Madeira, and he immigrated to South Africa at the age of 15 or 16. My mom was born in South Africa but her parents were from Madeira. Anyways, family history aside, you may remember that in one of my earlier blogs I mentioned the possibility of this trip. Well everything went smoothly, my dad bought me my ticket and I was in for a two week holiday with family on that side of the world :D

Unfortunately (or fortunately) for you, I am not going to blog about my holiday. That would take too long! I will say though that it was an awesome experience. I went over alone and I had to look after myself, and it taught me a lot and I think I grew up a little too. I'm still me though which is awesome :P I cant wait to go back again. My parents are most probably going over later this year, I think I may just go with them!

I have yet to decide what my new years resolutions will be. I have a few ideas, but I know that I do want to have more goals to aim for. I am also proud to say that I did actually achieve a lot that I set out to do last year. So this year can only get better, right? Lets hope so :) I will be putting up a list of what (in my opinion) I achieved last year, and what I want to achieve this year. There is such an air of expectancy, not only from me, but from like nearly everybody I know. This is going to be a big year, I can feel it! And if it isn't... well, I'll just look back at this blog and laugh at myself :P 

Lets not forget that for South Africa, it is going to be a huge year! Soccer World Cup, baby! The draw was done so very long ago. And the thought of a 2010 world cup right here in our backyard seemed so very far off. Strange though, its here already! Time is definitely on the move, and I think its time that I got on with utilising my time efficiently. So this is to 2010. A year of big changes, new challenges, new pains, new joys, new experiences and everything else!!! Im ready :)
