Charmie's Olde Tyme Year End Revue

Well, it's that time again, to review the best and the worst of 2008. Unfortunately, I have a memory like a sieve and can barely remember what I did yesterday, let alone last January, but I'm going to give it a go for all the nones of you out there reading my blog.

Let's see...in the early months of 2008 I was doing a lot of working out and hanging out because I was training for a marathon. So I got a gym membership and started getting fit.

In February I had a boyfriend until the end of the month, and I also had a rather feverish crush on someone and was flirting a lot. Broke up with the boyfriend after he spent a night calling me over and over when I was trying to sleep and one of his friends mentioned something about him buying a ring.

March was uneventful other than I finally got to go out with the crush, which was one of the best nights of my life, followed by months of trying to get back to that which resulted in a rather deep depression for the next 6 months.

April, I don't think anything happened in April. I was just an asshole to everyone around me.

May was my marathon and I ran the wrong way for over a mile. It was fun but I wish I could have helped my team out a little more. May was also the end of the school year, and the party where I threw up over the side of the boat, passed out and was left for dead, woke up and did some bad things, went back to bed and started hating myself and everyone else.

June was good, no school, got on some antidepressants and finally started to act like a human being again. Laid around the pool and did not much else.

July and August was more of the same, pool, golf, and drinking. Somewhere in there I was informed that I was no longer going to be working at my old job, and that just pissed me off all over again.

September and October I started going to school for a new teaching license, to get Special Education and hopefully a real live job someday.

In November I passed my Praxis and got three A's and an A- in my classes. Thanksgiving was fun, and I did my first ever babysitting gig and only had to change one pee-diaper and all was right with the world.

December was probably the best month of this year. I made several new friends, and one best friend. I get to hang out with her and her family all the time and they make me happy. I had an excellent Christmas and hopefully a good New Year.

My resolutions for the new year are to once again get in shape for the marathon, only this time I'm going to do the half with my mom. Resolution two is to try to make some more connections and try harder to see the good in people. I let someone break me this year and I'm still recovering from that heart smashing blow, but I think I'm almost there and I'm ready to start anew.

What are your resolutions?
