    My 2009:

    Still have job, but working more than before, less days off. Never got my promotion.
    Had a life-threatening blood clot in leg that screwed up everything.
    Dog tore her ACL in her rear leg, Operation done, but rehab not working too well.
    Wife dropped out of school, but now is pushing me to do a side business.
    Officially tired of working on cars...
    Drank more beer than ever before...but weening to wine.
    Quit smoking...but switched to e-cigs.
    Tried to help out buddies, but just got spite in return.
    Made a lot of new friends.



    I sure the hell hope 2010 will be better.....:confused:

    Planned...

    Lose some weight.
    Build an awesome patio.
    finish 2 car projects or sell them.
    press on with the house rebuild.
    get private pilots license.
    plan and maybe start up a small business...
    Hope to see an old plane or another new car in my garage.:ph34r:
    Payoff the 2007 subaru a year early.

















    *(I got to work 13 days straight to get a sweet bonus):(:mad::ph34r::D

    good goddamned riddance to 2009.

    '09 recap:

    - long roadtrip ends in lack of funds, but warm place somewhat near grandparents, so ok.
    - lost a cat, had a wallet stolen, and had a full on meltdown all in one weekend roadtrip.
    - gave up my 2nd set of wheels (dumb, but maybe not a dumb move financially, sigh).
    - dangled on the precipice of viable part time income in a shitty economy for 9+months, on 3 month contract extensions (the suck)
    - blew the timing belt at 80mph in my CRX, fuck. but yay, no hardcore damage. just $800 in repairs..
    - nearly got killed by low blood sugar Diabetic Phil at 74mph on the way to phx for what was supposed to be an acoustic show (and was really a come to jeezus meetin in a bar on a saturday night, wtf?!?)
    - told my mom how it fucking is on christmas day, and left without looking back.

    Planned for '10:

    - another bottle of vodka, this one's dry.

    2009 has been the worst year ever. I've been unemployed since April, with no real prospects - I'm "too qualified" for minimum wage work, but less qualified than everyone who's applying for 'skilled' work. Haven't gotten any callbacks on anything, unskilled or otherwise. Need to get money to upgrade some pc parts soon, and buy a windows 7 license. RC license expires in about 4 months.

    It was actually a Halo 3 reference. I have been playing a lot and whenever someone talks shit I own them then give them the joystick tea-bagging lol.

    I had no idea that you lost your full time job. Did you find another one or are you living off of HS?

    Sorry that you had to get rid of all your cars. Market will recover and so will you. You are a pretty smart guy.
