Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- Jan. 3, 2011

Song of the Day: Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine

  Happy New Year all! How did everyone bring in the New Year? I had a great time because I had family at my parents house from all over the U.S. And Trinidad! The only pitfall was that I spent much of the New Year's Eve making centerpieces. It was all for a good cause though. My sister is married, and it was a beautiful wedding. I hope everyone is keeping up with their resolutions. What better way to start the New Year off right than with a few good opportunities? Take a look.
