    I forgot about bought a house!! And I SO am dreaming of all your Israel comments. One day for me … one day …

    Thank you for sharing and for being an incredible YOU!

    Wow Yuz, I can remember when you were just talking about a blog and now your doing it. You certainly helped me through some really ruff time and through what I have read you have helped many others. you should be proud of yourself for that. I love both of the lists you have written esp the second list of what you have done. People are always doing a bucket list but not many do one about the thing they have achieved. I know it has been a really long time but I would really love to catch up one day just even to chat about where life has taken us since Albert Road. Anyway keep up the great work Jacinta

  4. You are a star. But I already knew that. 😉

  5. Fantastic list!! The money you raised for cancer research is astonishing. Cheers to that! I also love the buildings you went to the top of! And congrats for beating PPD… that’s a tough obstacle to overcome, and quite the accomplishment.

  6. Wow, cool idea. will participate! 17K is awesome! you go girl!

  7. Ivy says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of neat stuff you’ve done! So much to be proud of. It was so great “meeting” you via Skype. Hope you make it back to New York sometime in the near future. If not, will def try to pay Melbourne a visit in ’14!
