    I got my first full-time job.
    I got accepted into university.
    I loved and lost.
    I met my best friend.
    I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder.
    My cat and dog died.
    My family got a new kitten.
    My new aforementioned kitten was attacked by a low-life that lived nearby and suffered a broken leg when he was only four months old, luckily he's all better now.
    I got my first iPhone, a black 3GS.
    I got my second Mac, a 15.4" unibody MBP.
    I turned 18 and therefore became legal.
    I got my drivers license.

    Pretty big year...

    The year the best job I ever had ended when the Rocky Mountain News closed up shop.
    The year my car got repossessed due to the above. Never lost a car in this way.

    I don't need anymore bad things the rest of the year. PLEASE.

    2009 was the year that I failed my Maths GCSE for the 6th time, missed out on a Job (which would of sent me around the world), went back to College, broke my iPhone 3 times and went on holiday for most of summer instead of doing what I was suppose to be doing for College prep :p

    Oh and before the year ends I'll be 18 and allowed to Drink/Smoke (legally :p )

    2009 was the year:
    my wife got laid off
    My girls turned 3

    That's about it for me - the wife and I are on survival mode right now trying to keep our heads above water until she lands a job. My focus has been on my girls, making sure they have all that they need.
