    OK...so it is now NOVEMBER and chances are the biggest, best or worst has already happened to you for the year....What were you personal highlights and lowlights for 2009?

    Personally...
    "HIGHLIGHTS"
    #1) The Training and running of the Columbus Marathon on October 18
    #2) My 2 weeks vacation/ Cruise with RSVP to ALASKA! in Late August

    "LOWLIGHTS"
    #1) Death of my Uncle over Labor day weekend
    #2) Committing my sister for 2 months to a "Psyche Hospital" after her attempted suicide and for15 ECT treatments in January and February...
    #3) DUI I got February 28.....(the driving restrictions are over on December 9...)

    The bad:
    In January, my boy friend and I broke up.
    After graduating from college, I haven't been able to find work.
    I'm draining my savings and my retirement account (I can't wait 'til April 15th).
    I developed agoraphobia, and panic attacks.
    By back hurts.

    The good:
    I saw our new President get sworn into office, ending the most nightmarish 8 years of tyranny this country has ever seen.

    Good

    #1 Got a sweet new part-time job as a production manager for one of the top 15 venues of it's size in US
    #2 Own business is going awesome. Made money, threw our first multi-day festival that didn't lose money, have connected with new producers, agents and venues and have gained notoriety on this side of the country. Also have expanded the genres of music and art we promote.
    #3 In the best health I've ever been in.
    #4 Got an awesome new dog
    #5 Tons of great friends who are also overall doing well.
    #6 Took part as writer, cameraman and production assistant in a TV show that became the top-rated show on public access.

    Can't really think of anything bad....not finding anyone really awesome to date....but whatever, that will come.
