    That's awesome. In which state/country you bought your house, if I may ask? I wanted to do this; but, I cannot commit to the place I am living now. I just feel I am moving out. Owning property may slow me down my decision on moving out.

    England. Buying a house in another country would be fun and all that, but the commute into work would be hellish...

    I've lost quite a bit of weight and I'm also about a week or so away from releasing a beta of my first shareware app.

    Congrats, mate! Noice one! :D

    As for me? Well, I made peace with my being in this universe, and then I ate a whole loaf of bread. It was a pretty big loaf.

    Got 95% on my science unit test, found out I'm a nice girls best friend, and sold all my imported chocolate bars in less than a week.

    In chronological order...

    Got a job in the field that I was trying to get into, connected to the country I wanted to work with (Russia). Got a bigger apartment. Traveled to Russia on your tax dollars (again!). Got my wife pregnant (intentional--planned--extremely excited). Saved money and saved for retirement. Got back into an old hobby that I love (photography--put together a couple old albums; have been taking tons of pictures and am starting to actually like some of them!).

    Those are the big things, I think. Man. This thread makes me feel much better than I did a few minutes ago. Thanks!

    Quit the job I thought I would have for quite some time, due to realizing while I could do it, didn't mean I should do it.

    Went into business with my father.

    Passed the following financial tests:
    Series 7
    Series 66
    Series 31
    Life Insurance Producer
    Health Insurance Producer


    Cut my hair back to a length I am comfortable. Prepping for the angry onslaught from boss/father.

    Congrats to those who accomplished great things in 2006, and may we all enjoy 2007.

    Got laid off :( , paid off the car :) , and cashed in on unemployment benefits for the first time in my life! :D All in the month of December.
    After over a decade in the same workplace, I'm actually considering trying something new, with my wife's encouragement!

    Last, but not least, my first fortune cookie after the lay off read:
    "There is no security on this earth, there is only opportunity."

    Overall is's been a banner year!

    Graduating High School, going to college, getting a mac, and working multiple jobs for the first time - it's a doozy!
