how was 2011 been for you?
i have only one thing to complain about so far. and it is this damn cold that i can't seem to shake. it began in my sinuses, moved to my chest before christmas where it stole my voice and turned me into someone who sounded like they'd worked in a smoking lounge for 30 years, and now it is back to my sinuses and my head. maybe it is a new cold (not sure how exactly this medical science thing works when it comes to cold viruses) or if it just won't leave, but it sure is frustrating. a lot of sneezing, a lot of congestion, and not a lot of drainage.
other than this damn cold, i am enjoying 2011 so far. i woke up on new years morning with an email saying that i have been selected to attend training in new york city on gender based violence programming and coordination in emergencies and i am really looking forward to learning more about the field, meeting some interesting people, and exploring the big apple for the first time.
and, as always, i am hoping that some sort oracle emerges to tell me what i should doing with my life, where i should live, and what i want to be when i grow up. hopefully this training and this trip will help me do that. but the idea that i have something on the professional and personal agenda is enough to tie me over at the moment
oh yeah, and it will also be a good way to celebrate my upcoming 30th birthday!
