2008 ending...

Reflecting back on 2008, I guess in 1 hand I feel I did not achieve much yet on another hand I feel I've achieved quite a lot. Very contradicting but I don't know how else to explain my feelings now.

2008 passed like a bullet train for me. I did not even realize it was already going to end till today.
I changed jobs and got a new one. I lost someone special but found my everything in this someone new. We're going to start a new chapter in our lives next year. Yesterday we also made a very big decision that would bind us and bring us closer to each other. My family was always part of everything I did this year and I really appreciate them and thank them.

To summarize I think there's a few achievements that I made this year.
Getting a job that is really what I wanted - getting to do hands on technical stuff on enterprise products and learning more.
Finally found the one that I could spend the rest of my life with.
Proposing to that person (referred to only as NgP on my blog =P).
Buying a house together with that person.
Getting closer to my family and knowing how much they care for me.
Knowing God is always part of my life no matter what happens, He will not abandon me.

For 2009, I just hope I can maintain this job although with the economic crisis happening all over the world. Secondly I would want to learn more stuff on backup and storage, hopefully next year I'll be able to move on to disk backup technologies after learning everything on tape backup.
Thirdly would be to settle down hopefully =)

Thank you all for being part of my life... I wish everyone a better health, wealth and happiness in 2009. Happy New Year 2009!
