Looking behind at 2012 before I pass 2013’s threshold…

2012 was by far the most overwhelming year for me, I am one step away from leaving it behind, and I almost feel sad in a way.

Today I went through my laptop to view my 2012, my way to glance over my shoulder as I part ways with a year that left an impact on me, a year people thought the Mayans had marked it as the end, a year I can’t even celebrate leaving so easily.

If I decided to talk about my 2012’s experience, you will never see the end of it, so I will let the pictures tell you most of the story and I’ll fill in some details, they do have thousands of words, emotions, and thoughts to pass on to you all…

Looking at those pictures, I can now pass by with confidence in my steps. I hope in 2013 I will see more growth and much interesting pictures to go along with the year, my start is already a strong one indeed, by the end of January, I’ll graduate and I’ll be a full fledged Dentist, also, my thriller, Psychs, will be available in paperback edition out there, by March, my book will be at the Tucson Book Fair, and, the big one, The Remnant, the second book of the Psych series, will be released… 2013, here I come.

Happy New Year to you all, may this year brings you infinite joy, health, wealth and prosperity.
