It’s been a good day. And it’s been a fantastic month. And an amazing year.
President Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term. A friend finally finished her thesis, and is due to graduate, after having spent 9 years striving towards finishing her undergrad degree. A few more friends are but months away from wrapping up their degrees. A married friend received her permanent residency. And as a bonus, so did I (after waiting for nearly three and a half years). And a year from now, I’ll be sitting a citizenship exam, one which will allow me, a few months later, at a formal inauguration, to say “I am Australian”.
2012, you have been a wonderful year. Thank you.
