    I am glad to say that 2011 is almost over and looking forward to bringing in 2012 !!!

    My worst has to be dating. I can literally write a book about all the wrong things that could happen, happen. Most memorable would be going out with someone who was leading me on without telling me he was dating my ex. Took me years to get over my ex after he left me for a miami hooker. After i found out, i asked him who he liked more and he chose my ex.

    My best has to be my father beating out cancer. My parents have been together for 35 years and the fear my mom would be left alone just would kill me. Thankfully the biggest christmas present was that the chemo worked and cancer gone.

    Even though I went through many ups and downs in 2011, I am glad to have lived it. It has made me a stronger person and to never take things for granted.
    I wish everyone a Happy New Year with lots of Love and Happiness!! icon_biggrin.gif

    The Best - getting my first 'big' contract awarded to my 1 year old company. (insert euphoric moment here)

    The Worst - finding out that I got awarded the contract because my bid was low. Like really freaking low. (insert walk of shame to the bank here to ask for a loan to cover my losses)

    2011 was a bitter sweet year.

    Sweet:
    -Traveled to the Caribbean
    - Got a new car
    - Turned 40
    - Still have a loving boyfriend after 14 years.
    - Have good cholesterol numbers
    - Quit smoking
    - Went back to the gym

    Bitter
    - Made half the money I made in 2010
    - Broke my big toe
    - Got a new car
    - Gained weight from quitting smoking

    The sweet far outweighed the bitter and the bitter really is nothing to complain about so... all in all. 2011 wasn't a bad year just not the greatest.

    Best: Meeting T. He gave me the self-confidence I so desperately needed, gave me the opportunity to be with someone I never thought I could be with, and was a fantastic introduction into the world of gay culture. Coming to peace with the my life in the States and finally getting out for good. Getting a much better feel for who I am and who I want to become. Learning some really valuable fucking lessons.

    Worst: The disillusionment that accompanied discovering some of the hard truths about gay culture. Getting fired from a job for my stupidly self-destructive behaviour. HIV scare, and my parents subsesquently finding out about my sexual activity from it. The hardships that lead to learning aforementioned lessons. Being deported, and the crazy amount of stress that it entailed for my family and I. Reaching my all time low in terms of wreckless self-destructive behaviour.

    No matter what 2012 throws at me, I feel infinitely better prepared for it than I would have 365 days ago.

    Best - Discovering a new side of myself that I didn't know existed before (part of my quest).

    Worst - It was a very financially hard year - which was the source of my stress.

    So while I have been seeing people say this was the worst year ever, for me, it was one of my best.

    2009 was a bad year for me. I am still in recovery mode.

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    Best: Running a personal best marathon in Jan, despite lugging around all my Xmas fat.

    Surprising offers of help from those whom I least expected it from.

    Worst: Having my ceilings collapse from a negligent roofer that failed to cover my house in the rain.

    A dear friend dying from cancer after losing her voice,trachea, esophagus, stomach and uterus. A long 3 years that came to a peaceful end for her.

    Spending nearly half the year crippled/casted with broken feet from running in a minimalist shoe.

    Thankfully, the year started out terrifically, the middle was a nightmare and everything is coming back together to close this chapter positively.

    Welcoming 2012 with a warm embrace!
