"EVALUATING 2009 (1)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, December 2 2009 - There is not one word that would describe this last calendar year, both for the Dubroom website as for me, being webmaster and also a person.
Personally I've had some of the most intense times and huge relieves after two years of working on a personal thing which involved flying to and from another continent for a period of time. I will no longer have to do this no more, which is a huge relief.
I would like to share just one experience, in order to illustrate just why it's such a relief.
The last time I flew from Amsterdam and reached my destination, it took me three hours before I could grab my luggage and move out of the airport. Not uncommon for a dread, and when you're "from Amsterdam" there are ones who just love to give you a hard time.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
