What's Happened So Far (Part 1)

It's only a few more days to the next year already. Just about 74 more hours to 2011. That thought alone is kinda both exciting and frightening at the same time. On one hand, this means new exciting things coming our way. New experiences, new opportunities, new possessions, new responsibilities etc. On the other hand, it shows just how fast time can pass by, reminding us on the harsh unchanging fact that we cannot move back through time and correct our mistakes. And we also end up being closer to December 2012, which we are as present still unsure of what the heck would happen then.

No matter how fast time goes past, we still manage to remember past achievements and events that happened in the world. Sometimes it helps us to learn lessons from the past to avert disasters in the future. Sometimes certain people and actions help inspire today's generations to follow their dreams, continue mankind's progress, spread the kindness and joy, whatever.

It's a good time now to reflect on what happened in 2010: what we gained and lost, who succeeded and who failed, all the triumphs and disasters. So here's a rough chronological account for 2010: (yes I did use Wikipedia)






Oh my GOODNESS, I have to extend this in another post later. I don't remember having posts this long. There's going to be a part 2 later on...

(...or is it just my imagination that this post seems extremely long?)
