Just wishing all my friends a family a great winter holiday week! Please know that for those of you I can't be with, I miss you very much, and wish I could be there. Even if you don't celebrate any particular holidays during this time, it is always good to take moment before the new coming year to sit back and reflect on all the good things that have happened during the year.
As for myself, I have had an incredible year so far. I recently graduated from college, was able to work and do research at one of the most famous medical universities in the United States, was accepted into graduate school in Japan, made many new friends, went many new places, and managed to get to know some wonderful people where-ever I went.
Even though this Christmas holiday I will be away from my family in the United States, I will be able to meet my Japanese family for the first time to greet the New Years!
Best wishes everyone ~ Jane Tonello
