Happy New Year! Today my facebook feed has been an explosion of friends recapping the year in a nutshell. 2012 has been tremendous, and life seems to get better each year. Never before have I felt that life has held more promise of love, hope and adventure. I am so humbled to have the opportunities I’ve been given and the people who keep me anchored despite my wandering ways.
Life has changed dramatically this year for me. Although ironically, I find myself in the same city celebrating the holiday as last year, which is a first for me. This time last year I was frantically preparing for the Jessup, and worrying about how I was ever going to juggle finishing my JD early. From Hong Kong to Cambridge, my surroundings sure have changed.
Despite moving intensively in the last several years, and missing out on weddings, graduations (including my own) and reunions, I am never really “abroad” so long as I have people to keep me rooted. In the past few months I have met and become friends with some of the most amazing people, and studying at Harvard has surpassed my wildest dreams. And through it all, I am anchored by a wonderful man, who lends me faith in myself when I need it the most.
My only ache is for the open road. The wanderlust which has been temporarily shelved as I pursue my studies. I have an inkling that this next year will hold great adventures though, and cannot wait to see what lies in store. Happy 2013 everyone. May your year be full of laughter and triumph.
