Hi All, half of the year had passed. It has been a tough year for me. I have so many family problems here and there from early in the year and just early this week, one of my cousin who I am pretty closed with died in a plane accident, he was the pilot of the plane. My dad also starting to get these illness coming out of nowhere, maybe because aging process because he's going to be 70 this year, well your body must be some adjustment at that age. I really really hope the next half year will be better than the first one. I just pray to God for His blessings to my family. I also hope that my work will be more challenging, especially since I finished my rotation and will be placed in a specific task. So, how about you? Is it a great year or a tough one? Share it here.

Personally speaking,its a decisive year in my life.I have finished my bachelors last month.Its time to introspect my interests.With plate full of opportunities in front of me,its becoming a tedious task.But then I only prefer to do what I can really do in the long term.I have graduated in IT.But I am really not interested in getting into technical job.This is the challenge I am actually facing right now.Should I switch to the field I want to do? Its tough.But I'll have to face it like everybody else.

Those things you mentioned often happens to everyone. They are not felling comfortable of the field they study at uni and choosing another field instead or finally applying for their field. It is not easy to do this because it is the starting point of your career and must make the right decision. In the end, although you might not like the field, but hopefully after doing it, you will enjoy it. I try to do that now. Thank you for sharing

so far, 2009 had been a wake up call for me to keep on living life, dreaming and believing.. after being in hell on the last month of 2008, i am striving and making the most out of everything that i have. i am now attending college again after stopping last year. i want to finish my degree now, i am not getting younger. at all cost i will graduate with flying colors.

Time really flies so fast and we're in the middle of the year. The first half of the year has been good so far since I still have a job so I have money to spent. well, from this moment on, I am running out of funds so I better find a job. although sometimes we may measure the goodness of the year by how much and many we have but there are small things that come as blessings and blessings in disguise. And good health for that matter really means a lot. I hope we all have a good year or what remains of the year 2009 and I hope we live up to the challenge of what this year may bring to us.

The pastor of our church has said, "We're either going into a trial, in the middle of a trial, or coming out of a trial." My husband and I are having a good year so far, but I can't say the same for the past few years, as they were very rough. I lost my dad to prostate cancer, and then eight years later I lost my mom to 'natural causes'. As time goes by, things are getting better, I thank God for that. I hope God blesses you and your family.
