The Year that was - Dave's 2014 Year in Review

The Year that was - Dave's 2014 Year in Review

I came back to Yokohama from Toyama 2 weeks ago for the Christmas/New Year break. And I was supppper busy here and there and everywhere. I'm sure I blew through US $1000 in the 2 weeks while in Yokohama, just running around. But very soon this will be like a walk in the park :)  Big things gonna happen in 2015. Stay tuned !!!

Anyway, if I should sum up 2014, I would say it was generally just a normal year. It started off low, got high-ish but not too high, then it got a little depressing then ended pretty nice. Here are some of the major events that took place in my life in 2014.
