a warm welcome to 2014

So 2013 has come and gone. Time sure flies these days...

The nice thing is that we had our first New Year's Eve party in six years. It wasn't a big one as we only invited the Wilsons next door and Dad's colleagues Po-Kang and Paul. On the other hand, both my mother and the Wilsons made lots of good food. You can go here to see what we ate.

There were no kids as Julia and Rachel were with friends. Speaking of which, the Wilsons didn't want to leave their daughters home alone for too long and left just after the Times Square ball drop. Paul soon followed as he also had a wife and child at home. Po-Kang shared a ride with Paul and left at the same time.

It's too bad the party ended so soon. Though I suggested going to downtown Mountain View to check out the New Year's Eve events, Mom was tired and wasn't too keen on the idea. Oh well.

2013 in review

On the whole, 2013 was one of the better years. One major highlight was our recent trip to Reno. That was quite enjoyable, especially considering that we don't travel much nowadays. The worst part was when I had pelvic pain for several months. The pain was bearable, but the doctor visits racked up almost $600 in medical bills. >:(

Looking forward, I'm really excited for the future. On the subject of which, my New Year's resolutions are to take ownership of my work and make more real-life friends. Challenge accepted!
