Well, the new year has started, so I've been looking back on 2006 a lot. 2006 was a year of ultimate highs and lows. Highs: I got over my depression, did extremely well in school, my relationship became more stable (and hit our one year anniversary), formed a great group of friends, volunteered with the Humane Society and other organizations, got my drivers permit. Lows: Hit some major low points in my relationship (cheating accusations, drugs, a "break"), lost a lot of elementary school friends to the allure of popularity, had a class I hated extremely, stress over AP exams, I found out I have low blood sugar, my grandmother became very sick.

Anyway, looking forward to the new year. My license, Honors Society, further development in all my relationships romantic/friends/family. So, how was your 2006? Looking forward to 2007?

Highs of 2006: Started the best relationship of my life, started swing dancing, graduated high school and started going to a terrific university, finally overcame (most of) my insecurity issues, got my emotional eating under control.

Lows: My grandfather passed away, I got into a car accident, ate emotionally for a lot of the year --> gained some weight, went into depression for a while and almost screwed things up in my relationship.

But everything worked out in the end. I've conquered most of my emotional issues, and I'm forming healthier habits, taking better classes, and planning to live a happier 2007. [Smile]

2006 was a great year. My highs: I got married, had an amazing honeymoon, pay raise at work, lot more time with my friends and family, reach one year of parenting with our kittens, and got a car.

Lows: my family's standard poodle (dog) of almost 10 years had passed away due to an heart attack in late january (he was only two weeks away from his 10th birthday!) and my grandmother (my mom's mother) passed away due to pancreas cancer in November.

I have lots more highs to look forward for this new year of 2007. I have more goals to complete [Smile]

-Got away from a roommate with a horrible attitude

-Got Kito, my cute little pet rat(she's not so little anymore!)

-Managed against all odds to pay the deposit for my trip to Greece with my acapella group

-Rediscovered poetry

-Got my comic into my school's GSA newspaper

-Became president of said GSA

-Started doing stand-up

@#%!Lows of 2006!%#@

-Watching media coverage of stupid celebrity scandals and other relatively unimportant brain clutter and realizing that much of America is just eating this up

-Watching the news and realizing that hardly anyone did anything noteworthy that was positive last year

-Finding out that someone I went to elementary school with had been murdered by other people I went to elementary school with

2006 was probably the single worst year of my life. If I have to go through all that again, I'd probably have to kill myself.

1. Rejected from medical school
2. Boyfriend got sent to prison
3. Found out boyfriend cheated on me for a year
4. Home was burglarized right before Xmas

To hear the nitty gritty, look at my Village People thread.

Hm 2006:
Was in a relationship from the start of 06 that went until July too which I realized I wasted a year of my life with that person and all I did was try to help him get better in his life and not focus on me.
I went to california for two weeks and while I was away I realized all this so i broke up with him.

So the bad: Broke up with someone I wasted a year with. (though thats not that bad really)
Didnt do my photography at all while I was in a relationship with that person.

The Good: Got my photography going again!
Entered a photo contest and won viewers choice!
Got my new camera!
Met some rad new people.
Skated alot.

and yeah thats about it, but 2007 has started off really well. So Cheers for that!

Good for you for getting back into photography, surferchick! And for realizing what was best for YOU and not someone else, and acting upon it [Smile]

I think many relationships, even if they drain you, aren't necessarily a waste of time because they can help you learn more about yourself and what is in your best interests and what is best for you in your life!

Yeah though I think it was in a way a waste. I didnt learn anything thru the relationship, cept I guess not to focus on the other person so much. You can only help someone if they want to be helped. And he didnt want to be helped.

Thats my big thing now I guess not putting an effort into trying to help people when they dont even want to be helped. They need to realize it for themselves than if they realize they need help. I will be there for em.
