End the Year on a Good Note

It's been a hell of a year. In a good way, it really has.

It started with New Years in Vegas.

The end of my relationship with the Bipolic (both good and bad)

I bought my first car, on my own.

My company got bought out by the mothership.

My best friend found out she was pregnant.

She then had a miscarriage.

She then found out her husband was cheating on her.

I then lost my best friend (lost the friendship)

I then got a fantastic job that paid to move me to Atlanta with a huge salary increase with a great boss.

I found the house I want to buy.

I then found out soon that I would be losing my job, just wasn't sure when.

I then had my gallbladder removed.

And it was a few weeks later that I found out my last day on the job would be January 1st. (Well, actually, December 29th...which at this moment is 25 days, 19 hours, 2 minutes and 8 seconds.)

And now, I find myself more stressed out than ever. My luck has got to run out sometime right? I'm searching constantly for a new job. A job that I'll like, that can be long term, that is similar in pay and has room for growth.

So, I say it has been a good year because everything has worked out for the best for the most part. Each thing that I thought was going to be the end all-be all ended up being not as bad as I thought it was going to be or as bad as it could have been.

So, with the current situation, I am trying to have faith. Faith that it all work out for the best just as it has been. If it all works out, it'll be my own personal landfall. The company that I now truly hate paid to move me out here, gave me some decent experience, increased my salary, introduced me to some new friends and is giving me a decent severance package. If I can find a job right away and not have to use the severance money for it's intended purpose...that would be just great!

That would make my year!

So I am crossing my fingers that I will hear something soon on the job front. And that it'll be good. And we can keep this good streak going. Yes, I'll be a happy girl.

So, yes, it has been a good year. Let's just finish it off that way too!

For me, 2006 has been a crappy year. Nothing *really* bad happened but nothing *really* good happened, either. Overall, I didn't accomplish a hell of a lot and the year has pretty much been a waste. And that's my fault. Which sucks.

Wow, this comment has a lot inspirational value, huh?

Look, all I'm saying is - things *never* work out the way you plan. You did accomplish a lot this year and even if life has turned a bit shitty with regards to the job situation, you had a pretty damn good year. I think you're gonna do just fine.

Wow! Now that's a roller coaster year! I have my fingers crossed that it ends on an upturn for you.

That has been a wild year.

As for the job situation, how do you like the title minion? :)
