2006 has been a hell of a year for me. It's been an emotional battleground to say the least, from being engaged, to breakup, to second chances, to heartache, to starting in 2 new cities, from SJU to ND. I'll be starting '07 with a battle-worn, but somewhat fresh slate. Clearing it off came with a mix of sadness and relief, and I hope that it's for the best.

I've learned a lot from this year, but I hope that there will be better days ahead.
