What Brings Us Together

Besides the holidays...the internet.

I knew maybe a total of 10 people overseas before I turned 25. Now half of my world is in Europe. And people, or at least computers, from all over the globe have seen some neon blog about a twenty-something volleyball coach-turned-player with a rad last name who takes action photos and amateur travel videos.

Countries that have registered access to "What Up, Swags?!" include: USA, Belgium, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Austria, Russia, Iran, Israel, Canada, Malaysia, Argentina, Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Slovenia.

Our society has truly gone global, and we are only drawing closer together everyday.

Remember how Christmas all began with God's ultimate gift to us: the baby Jesus in a lowly manger. He was proclaimed by the angels then, and His name is now declared through the wildfire of the internet.

Make your 2012 be the year you have been wanting for a long time. Your life is only going to be what you make it; how you act and react now will still matter in 30 years. Be proud of the road you choose, and have the courage to choose the right road everyday.

Thank you for glancing at, scanning through, or enjoying my first year of blogging, and here's to the hope for many more.

From our current home to wherever yours happens to be, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

That's what up.
