Hard to believe another year has gone by when it feels like 2013 just began.
New Year's is all about a fresh start, resolutions and endless possibilities. So here's to a wonderful 2014.
Current Head2Head Trivia champ Emily Kim, a student, is being challenged by Bridget Perkins who works as an executive assistant.
