The Year in News

Here are most searched news of 2010 according to Google. 2010 went by so fast I can't even believe how fast it went for me.
A Year of Crisis
There was the European debt crisis, the high unemployment rates, the Thailand political crisis.  Sadly I didn't hear much about the Thailand crisis but here is the wiki link here (not wikileaks lol).


A Year of Achievements

The one that stands out most to me is the first full facial transplant. On March  20, 2010, a team of 30 Spanish doctors carried out the first full face transplant on a man injured in a shooting accident.


The 31-year-old was unable to eat, speak or breathe normally since he was disfigured in a gun accident in 2005. The operation enabled him to eat soft foods, drink liquids and to shave again.

A Year of Tragedy
There was the Gulf Oil Spill. It seemed like this was on the news forever. I'm just glad the spill is over and I hope the recovery is going good. There was the floods in Pakistan, China earthquake and Chile earthquake. Who can also forget the Haiti earthquake?


A Year of Milestones
The end of combat mission in Iraq. Costa Rica elects first woman president and so did Brazil. (When is our turn Nigeria)

A Year of Goodbyes
We said goodbye to JD Salinger, the author of the Catcher in the Rye (one of my fav books). Goodbye to Alexander McQueen, Dennis Hopper, Gary Coleman and countless others including someone very close to me. That is life, it's full of goodbyes and hellos.


A Year of  Hellos
Hello to South Africa! This World Cup was amazing and it was the first one in Africa. There was the vuvuzelas that made headlines for their sound. The music was great and so was the African spirit. A special thanks to Ghana for making us all proud. I'm still disappointed at the way they went out but I'm so proud of their effort. Oh and Tshabalala! Don't ask why but his name was fun to say. 

A Year of Surprises
The Bed Intruder (everyone better had watch this video by now), The Chilean miners safe rescue, Wikileaks, and so much more.

2010 definitely had character.

Back to the Start

I guess I'm back.
I always seem to leave this place as I get close to establishing myself.
I'm sorry I left so abruptly
I'm not sure why I left
But I know why I'm back
