The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil.” - Walt Disney

BC: Merry Christmas to all, With a new year dawning we find ourselves nurturing emerging and promising careers in our respective fields. In addition to working as a Legal Secretary at Fident Capital, Michelle spent much of 2012 volunteering her skills and time to a number of projects in the realms of both corporate and family law. She also accepted a position on the Board of Directors of The Foundation to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance as the Corporate Legal Secretary. The groups focus is to develop stronger antibiotics to fight increasingly more potent strains of bacteria such as MRSA infections which have become resistant to the more commonly used antibiotics available. In this role she is responsible for all federal and local filings and is currently helping the organization pursue their nonprofit status. Michelle continues to seek ever more enriching opportunities in the legal field and hopes to be working in intellectual property law in the near future. Michelle also continues to volunteer with both USMC Family Readiness and Kupa’a Mau Outrigger Canoe Club and finds much personal satisfaction in her volunteerism. | 2012 saw Don hard at his studies. Having finished his general education requirements he began pursuing core course work for two associate’s degrees. The first in Digital Photography, and the second in Liberal Arts with an Emphasis in Creative and Applied Arts, will both be completed by the end of July 2013. Becoming immersed in the culture of the art world has presented Don with some oft exasperating challenges, namely adapting to a tone and pace of professional expectation that is not as arduous as he has been accustomed to in years past. The experience has not been without reward however. Thanks to knowledge and contacts acquired in his fall semester a series of Don’s photographs entitled Last Day has been featured in two art gallery exhibitions, one that will run through January 18th, 2013. | He has also begun writing for an emerging art, music, and culture magazine called TheUpChuck. The most recent issue features two of his articles including his review of the San Diego RAWards and a one page spread of his Last Day series. In August we will be relocating to the Orange County area where Don will be pursuing his bachelor's degree in Communications at CSU Fullerton. Also, as this area is a renowned center of innovative businesses including the likes of Disney we know that Michelle will be well positioned to pursue her dreams as well. Together we have high hopes for a bright future! It is our hope that this calendar be more than a time keeping device and that you are able to benefit from the simple truths espoused in the quotations and photos You could try to practice each virtue for the whole month and then build on them as the year progresses. In that way it is one part Christmas gift and one part New Year's resolution! We wish you a joyful, prosperous, and safe 2013!! And to all a good night! Love, Don & Michelle
