    And the First 14 Days of 2009

    Yes, I did. And it's been a weird year. I didn't quite enjoy it at all. It's like I was kicked into some kind of roller coaster and rolled out at the end completely disoriented, surprised that the ride was already over. I always find it a shame when the ending of a year feels...

    Almost There....the Finish Line Is In Sight

    I can almost say that I've survived it.  A few more days so I've set this as a goal of mine. This year, 2008, was horrible on many levels.  One of the worst. I started off in a job that I absolutely hated making a fraction of what I made at my good job that I lost in...

    Just About

    At one point I nearly didn't. At one point I thought that maybe it would be the worst year in my entire existence. But it turned out ok in the end. In fact, more than ok, and the last few weeks have slowly made up for the last 11 months.

    The Great War of 2008

    The Great War of 2008 was something I had seen from as far back as 1995. I had written that a great war would be waged, but I never knew specifically what this war would be about or who it would involve. My prophecy was fulfilled and the war that had been raging for decades...

    Five More Days.

    I'd felt as though I was going to die before my eighteenth birthday for a long, long time. The night preceding my eighteenth birthday (in November), I was nearly overcome with a panic attack, for I knew, I knew that something was going to happen. After I successfully turned...

    Me Too

    2008 was a hard year, it had it's ups and downs but now it is finally almost over. I am really hoping 2009 will be a lot better. I always feel this way at the beginning of a new year though, and usually it doesn't happen. This year will be my year! And unless I die tomorrow, I...

    What An Interesting Year

    Well 2008 was a rebirth year for me.  I had been treading water for a long time.  Not willing to take the action I needed, hoping things would get better, knowing they wouldn't and actually seeing them get worse.  I was letting my life slip away, but I finally...
