The end of a decade.

Wow! Time has flown this year. Can you believe that it will be 2010 in less than 2 weeks? Do you remember 1999 when the whole world was worried about Y2K? Many people stayed home with gasoline, water and food just in case civilization ended. Now we are looking back and chuckling about that one. I assume we'll be shaking our heads at Global Warming pretty soon too.

What was the most important thing of the last decade for you? Has anything special happened in your life? I’ve spent the whole decade in Japan. I’ve had too much fun to go home! It’s been a great experience that has shaped my life incredibly.
