So Tonight I brought in the new years at work. I worked the night shift and actually just got home; it’s 3 a.m. if you are wondering, on the eve of a new year, I witnessed: a customer get engaged, my boss, get engaged and the sommelier almost behead some one while decorking a massive bottle of champagne with huge knife. As I reflect on 2010, I will remember it as a very tough, defining year; a lot happened. In working for my parents, I learned the true meaning of hard work. I moved to new york to pursue a job in finance, and as I continue my pursuit, I learned the hard fact that “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” You want to work in finance with the big dogs…….. you gotta take it. The most important thing for me in my bond that I forged with my family. We were always close, but some adversities that we faced together this year has really brought us together. My younger brother and I really have became close, which I feel is a big blessing . The Irony is that distance brought us together. I’m not going to make any resolutions. my theory, based on a thought of my uncle, is that “goals” in the conventional sense actually are a deterrent to action. I will not delve into that because i’m tired. But basically there are things I want to do in 2011 and rather than wasting time planning it out, i’m just going to take action. 2011 is a year i’m really looking forward to. It’ s my first year out of college where i’m dependent. This years outcome is fully on me. and i’m ready. In my 24th. year, I’m expecting great things to come into fruition, what they are…..who knows. It’s new york, anything can happen. happy new years every body. don’t make goals and resolutions. Just do it.
