2008 in Conclusion

Friday, January 2, 2009

2008 was a very challenging year for me. Where I am now, is mostly due to few events that had happen in 2008.

Firstly, 2008 is not a very good year for me. It was a year of uncertainty that leads me to look at life at a differently view.

Firstly, in the beginning of the year, my daughter started Kindo. We were excited and came to realize that how fast time moved and now she's big enough to go to "school". Well the excitement ended shortly when she started to fall ill frequently due high exposure to the unprotected world. At once she fell so sick that we have to admit her to hospital for observation. It hurts me so much to see her on drips, injection and medication to cure her fever. Further to it, the hospital bill was expensive too as she was admitted to a private hospital without insurance coverage. I have to pay everything from my wallet. Thank GOD that I have enough saving for such raining day.

As March arrived, it was time to renew the country’s government and a general election and polling was called. However this general election have seen major changes on the political scenes, the opposition party gain some ground and manage to hold some large number of parliament sits. The whole country’s political situation just changed over night as the opposition parties was so close to rule the country and they are trying so hard to do that. This has caused a lot of uncertainty especially to the stock market. Investors were cautious and the market just went into panic selling. This has caused me to lost quite substantial amount of funds in there.

The situation went worst when US credit crunch came in and recession was predicted on the way. The market fall further and I just lost all hope in it. Not mentioning my money.

There’s where I turn to other source of extra incoming. As I do my research online, I come across this term “Make money online”. So I wonder how does all these works?

Well here I am, blogging, Internet marketing, Adsense and any other possible money making ways from the Internet. Where do I stand now? I don’t know. I’ll leave it for my 2009 resolution.

But I do know something; I have learned tremendously here, from zero so a lot of knowledge. I made new friends from other country. I try out many strategy and technique and I can say that I’m getting better now. But how successful I can be? I’ll leave that for 2009 conclusion.

In general, 2008 did not start well and went to worst when coming to 3rd quarter, however the internet gave me a new ray of hope and had open new windows for me. So what’s on 2009?

Well challenging. 2009 is not a good year as many have predicted, Economy downturn, recession, retrenchment and etc. So what hope do we have here? The answers that I found were all right in front of the monitor. I got to think differently, act differently, and be different. Therefore 2009 is going to be a great year for me. I’m going to prove that what seems impossible can be make possible.

I’ll leave the rest on my 2009 resolution post. So, tune in.

Happy 2009
