The Year Ahead

I don't really know what the new year holds for me...   I just know that whatever it is, it is going to be big.  :)

Voki will come out, and we'll know whether it is a success or failure by the end of the year.  What Voki does will largely determine what I do.  Hopefully, a year from now, I'll have the pleasure of leading a team putting out a fun and growing product--one that changes our notions of how we express ourselves and relate to advertisers online.  I'll also have three more semesters of teaching under my belt and I'd like to be able to say that I will have made a difference in the lives of those I stand in front of in the classroom.

I also think it is going to be a big year for me personally.  I have a feeling that I'll be in a significant relationship by the end of the year.  I can't say whether I rediscover or am rediscovered by someone in my past, recent or distant, or whether I'm with someone I don't even know at this moment, but something tells me that all the ways in which I've envisioned growing with and sharing time with another person will come to fruition by the end of the year. 

I'll also probably have some kind of surgery within the year...  either to yank some wisdom teeth or to repair a knee after softball season.  Neither major, but both appear to be coming to a head.  I'd bet on the knee over the teeth, b/c my teeth seem to be proving much more resilient.

At this point, I just want to do my best...  to be able to look back and say that I gave it my all... that I was the best person I could have been in my job, for my family, my friends, to another person, and to myself.

Here's to the road ahead... thanks for reading...
