    So what all happened to you in 2008 in summary form...

    Here's my story

    January 2008--Was enagaged to EX- drove a 2003 Audi A6 TwinTurbo
    May- Was no longer Engaged, Seeing a new girl--Drove a 2006 Jetta GLI-
    July--New girlfriend moved away to Utah,
    November --Girlfriend decided to come back to CT to live with me..Now have 2004 Audi A4 1.8T--Went to Utah to see her
    December 2nd--went back to Utah to drive her home.

    To date--Love life is better then i can ever remember. Job sucks but at least i have one. Condo is doing good. Dog is doing good. No deaths of people i know. Family doing good.

    Thats my 2008 life wrap up

    Started the year off with a suspiscion of my girlfriend palling around, but had my dream job, could pay my bills and still work my hobby.

    Feb:Lost my job
    March: Lost my girlfriend
    April: Met a 19 year old goth girl
    April-september: Struggled with said goth girl
    September: Wrecked my bike
    September through December: dated a few girls that all turned out to be psycho.
    Ended the year with no job, lost my house to foreclosure, and I'm selling everything I can to pay for a bankrupcy. Lonely and pissed off.

    things were shitty for awhile. lost the cunt boat anchor.
    things at work got very busy, i made assloads of cash. bought some rare stuffs for the racecar and had a great year overall racing.
    many many road trips and all were fun.
    made lots of new friends.
    decided to plan to move to Atlanta by mid 2009, even though im currently seeing someone here now. she can either come with or stay.

    Started the year with a gf and no job. But parents were OK with me having no job because it was my last semester, I had money in the bank, and I wound up making Dean's List.

    Jan. 8th (B-day)- Gf and I break up with Tornado Ashley destroying my room. Literally took me 2-3 hours to clean it all up, including computers and a tv.
    Jan.29th- Got punched by a kid I was trying to help not get his ass kicked. I defended myself.
    Feb.-Got summoned for assault for said event.
    April-Charged dropped, bank account lightened.
    May-Graduated, met a great girl. Started to fall hard.
    June-Long story, hard to explain. No more girl. Got a job at Friday's
    August-Job with the Hudson Bergen Light Rail as a train operator. No more Friday's.
    Sept.-present-Work too much, at the worst times of day, for not enough money to give up my life.
    Dec.-Got a job with Aflac and spoke with the higher ups at my current to see about an office job.

    So currently I technically have 2 jobs, no girl or prospects, paying off debt rapidly, and living with my parents. Not bad, but the next few months should get better very fast.

    January: Got a sort-of-promotion with a raise, the job isn't easy by any means but I've worked far harder for far less and I'm thankful.

    February through December: .....

    2009: Profit!
