Bring it on 2012

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Today is the last day of my two-week break and I am savoring the last hours of this once a year vacay. Tomorrow, I will be back at work with tons of papers to check, review and outputs to follow up. In short, I am back to reality.

My two-week vacay was all about shopping, malling, eating, movies and time with my family. I wish life will be forever like this. :-)  No deadlines to beat and everything is so laid back. I also found some time recalling all the blessings that God has given me for the year. I was able to visit new places such as Puerto Galera and Taiwan. 2011 was a year of many memorable firsts for me. I made my first international research presentation and my blog finally gained a few but well treasured followers and readers. Blogging has been more exciting, inspiring and fulfilling with the presence of my frequent visitors turned friends such as Duni, Janelle, Kelley, Cheryl, Jen , Ricki and Diane. To those I have failed to mention, I apologize but each comment and visit you made in my blog is more than enough to brighten up my day.

For 2012, here are my wishes for my family, work, and blog life

1. To earn my first international publication
2. An opportunity to conduct another study with industry linkage - hopefully this can be another material for another international presentation 
3. To finish the Manual of Operations at work
4. More freelance works to fatten my savings account and give me some shopping money :-)
5. Continuous teaching job...for my students to pass their defense and no casualties (failing grades) in my other class
7. To gain more readers, followers turned friends in the blogosphere
8. Explore other earning opportunities in blogging
9. Fatten my savings account and earn other investments
10. and the one great wish..... :D

I know this year will never be an easy one. Challenges will surely emerge along the way. But whatever it is, I am ready! Bring it on 2012!


  1. Happy NEW Year Diane!! Thank you for the mention...isn't it fun to make friends through blogland? I just LOVE it. :) I think you have some fantastic dreams for 2012! I can't wait to read about them throughout the new year. I hope you have a good first week back at work and that it is not too busy!

  2. I hope all of your 2012 wishes come true. Happy New Year!

  3. You can do all these things and more. Happy New Year

  4. You are the sweetest, my dear!!! I am SO SORRY I missed your contest!!!
    I am home now, and I will never take cell service or the internet for granted again!!! It was so hard to blog and get emails at the resort. The internet was incredibly slow.

    I think your goals list for 2012 is fantastic, and I am sure you will reach every single one of your goals! I have not written my list yet, but I hope to do so in a few days. In the meantime... tons of laundry awaits me!

    Blessings for the New Year, my sweet bloggy friend!

  5. Hi Diane, I wish you the best of Luck with your goals for 2012. Glad that you got some well deserved time off. My hubby has had a week off and it's been nice. Other than he got sick. I've loved just being lazy, playing games and enjoying each others company. Glad to be one of those followers/friends!

  6. Hi Diane, glad you had a wonderful holidays too. Don't you sometimes wish too that money could just grow on trees so that we'd have more time for shopping and family? Hehe.. May God bless us again this year! =)

  7. Aaaawww... I'm touched! Hope to meet up with you soon Dianne! I'm still coming up with my list... and losing weight is definitely on it too (it's been on my list since 2010, *sniff*)

  8. Hi Diane, I've enjoyed reading your blog this last year and will be back often in 2012. I love reading about your adventures in your wonderful country and learning about your social life and environment. Thanks so much for sharing your life!!!

  9. You can make it happen Diane! :) Happy New Year!!
