    It's getting close to the end of the year. By now, what was supposed to happen in 2011 probably already happened.

    What did 2011 mean to your life?

    My 2011 was.. strange, to say the least. But overall, this year didn't quite turn out the way I was hoping. Next year, I'm gonna make things happen. Or at least try really hard. icon_confused.gif

    My 2011 was an AMAZING year for me. It was a year full of growth.

    This year alone I came COMPLETELY out (friends, family, everyone), finally fully accepted being gay and actually found a sense of pride within myself, graduated from grad school, got out completely from under my parents and moved to Atlanta living completely on my own dime, got a great job, met some great amazing people who I can now call friends, and learned A LOT about myself.

    I am hoping 2011 was just laying ground work for 2012 because there is a lot more I want to accomplish/experience in life. icon_biggrin.gif

    an improvement over 2010... But then, it had almost nowhere to go but up. lol Actually I finally started being able to achieve some of the things I started putting in motion in 2009 and 2010--so 2012 will go even further!!

    Unless of course the Aztecs were right. DOH.

    2011 has been interesting. Not exactly where I thought I'd be at the beginning of the year, but I'm ok with where I'm at, and getting to that mentality was kind of the point I think. All this year I've continued to pursue my fitness goals and despite some not so ideal circumstances I've learned to find happiness within myself and have come to the conclusion that everything in life happens, at the time it happens, for a reason. I'm looking forward to what life brings me in these last 2 months and in 2012.

    My 2011 was pretty much destroyed by the May 22nd Tornado.

    Moved everywhere under the sun because of it. -_-

    It was interesting to say the least but it was important nonetheless.

    -Finally at UCONN's main campus from going to a regional campus for the past two years
    -Weeding out poisonous friends (again) and making new ones (again...lets see how long they last before they flake on me)
    -Had an intense internship this summer and the skills I learned I will take with me wherever I go
    -Got into the business program at UCONN and it is slowly killing me but I hope it all works out in the end
    -Worked all summer for this surgery and I finally got it. One step closer to my goals
    -Currently networking for potential internships (have an interview on the 21st of this month!)
    -Learning from my past mistakes as I always do
    -Found this site and I am loving it
    -Starting to write my book (hard to find time with homework/studying)


    Overall, I am closer and closer to the person I wish to become physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

    2011 started off great. fresh out of uni and with a great job with great people but it also had it's downside.

    long distance relationships suck, moved away from the bf and only seen him a few times this year.
    also i found it quite hard to meet people up here so the friends list is rather low. guess they don't want to chat to someone that's involved. oh well

    2011 was a time of grieving and change for my remaining partner and me.

    Since losing our "third" partner (my legal spouse) to a 7 year battle with a brain tumour in the summer of 2010, the start of 2011 continued with all of the "firsts" without him (first anniversay, first Valentine's day, first birthdays, etc...)

    Besides missing him immensly the two of us have continued to undergo the change of dynamics in going from a poly relationship to a twosome.

    As the year rolls on, and I find my "grounding", in some ways I am returning to my old self but also have the realization that I will never fully be the same again as I was before our partner died (or even before he was first struck with cancer in 2003).

    My partner and I are on the left and our late spouse/partner is on the right.

    Actually whatever was supposed to happen in 2011 hasn't fully happened yet for me as I told my sister I'm gay this morning and she's gonna tell my other sister very soon...

    But, in 2011 I will graduate from college.

    In 2011, I saw my idol, Britney Spears, from the first row in Los Angeles for her Femme Fatale tour.

    In 2011, I dated a guy for a few weeks - first time I kissed a guy.

    In 2011, I found this other guy and I think this might be long term.

    In 2011, someone called my house and told my mom I'm gay. I denied it.

    This year has been a step in the right direction compared to last year. Last year just about everything that could go wrong went wrong. It was definitely quite a damper. But I've rebounded quite well this year. I haven't had the most adventurous or exciting year because of financial limitations, but it's been a hell of a lot better than being completely broke like I was most of last year. I'm glad my optimism carried me through.

    Yes, I was with my spouse (the one on the right of the picture) for almost 17 years (until he passed away in 2010). Together we were with our "third" partner (poly language is awkward) for about the last 3 of those years. The two of us remaining are now carrying on as a twosome.

    Not a good year, ugh uh, not at all.
    Dad got a stroke,
    They found a lump in my mom's breast
    I got sick
    Little niece at the age of 1 got sick and still.
    Money is going out of the window everyday for doctors and pills.
    Looking for love without much luck.
    Even though I'm turning 21 this Dec, I'm not so excited about it.
    ... and I could go on.
    I need a pity fuck

    My 2011 was not really good. Overall it sucked with too much stupid stuff I had. Just until a couple months ago, things started to go back on track, and actually the last month it seems to be pretty good. I predict a pretty good 2012 icon_biggrin.gif

    A little early to be reflective of the year, right?

    But moved to LA, doing well in school, found a job, and feel complete meeting my bf (soon to be more)

    While we're looking ahead:
    Only 409 more shopping days till Christmas 2012!!!
