Happy New Years PerC members!

I hope 2009 was a great year for you and I'm wishing you a better one for 2010.

Top 10 of 2009...

1.) Barack Obama and his historic inauguration.
2.) Twitter and Iran Elections - Who knew that such a website can help in a revolution?:shocked:
3.) Micheal Jackson - Love, Hate, Love? :dry:
4.) Health Care - Good ol American busin.. I mean medicine.
5.) Swine Flu - Flying Pigs are scaring the masses.
6.) Movie Industry Thrives! Is it just me or was there a lot of great movies that came out this year?
7.) Balloon Boy - An idiotic hoax can land you and your family on national television!
8.) Lend Lend Lend! Hey your government is helping businesses that produces products that no one wants.:dry:
9.) World Economy - If it's too good to be true it probably is.
10.) Google is the devil.:crazy:
Anyways those are my top 10 list of 2009. What is yours? Please also let the community know your New Years resolution in this thread.

Stay safe, have fun, and don't stop drinking them coffees!

Happy 2010!

In terms of 2009, I do love that Barack Obama was inaugurated--I have a bit of a crush on him. But aside from his historic inauguration, I found 2009 to be a yucky year! I got mono, and (unrelated to that) I seemed to have ruined the life of a dear friend. On the plus side, I did *finally* come out! Okay, I only came out to (cough) myself, and a couple of friends. But hopefully the new year will bring the courage to tell my mom!

As cbelle wrote, I'd also like to a lot more (publishable) writing--that's my biggest resolution. Next in line is to have sex with a man, and to go to the gym more. Those last two might be interrelated. :tongue:

2009 sucked.

Don't get me started on Obama. The only silver lining is that once he's through with America, I'll be in a position to bring the hammer down and plunge the country into the chaos and anarchy I've so long dreamed of. For only then can I turn to the hillbilly life of my ancestry.

I caught pneumonia and missed 3 weeks of class, we had a falling out with family "friends" (being the leeches that clung to us while my mom was sick and rented houses from us, and to this day haven't payed a dime of rent), the resulting evictions and lawsuits to get the money from them, the months of living like poor people because of my mom being unable to work and no income from the rental houses (see above), the imminent danger of losing our home... so yeah...

Oh, and my desktop died, and we've been unable to afford a new one for 6 months and counting. I've lived off my laptop.

But, I guess, there were some good things.

I graduated High School.

I survived my first semester of College.

and...

I don't know.

I'm glad it's over, though not because I'm excited about whatever's to come.

EDIT: And that logo is cool! I forgot about that!

Happy New Year and Decade :)

2009 was OK. I found out a lot about myself, and I managed to get a second poem published. A quite eventful year, and what a way to end the decade. Now we're in the fourth decade that I've lived in (1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010's), I'm hoping that this coming decade is going to be one of my best and most productive decades.

I don't make resolutions because I would probably give them up after a month or so anyway, but I suppose for this year I would like to improve my writing skills more (and that means more original fiction and not just fanfiction).

My new years resolution is to eat healthier and be a stricter vegetarian.

My friend's new years resolution is to lay off the alcohol. I'll also be participating in that for moral support :happy:

I've given up on resolutions just due to the fact I'll either forget or break it. But yes, happy new year and all the other assorted things.

New Year's Resolutions? I don't do that crap.

But while we're on the subject of New Year's Resolutions, gym regulars hate this time of year because this is when gyms are flooded with n00bs who make New Year's Resolutions to exercise more, only to disappear from the gym a month or two later. Don't be one of those guys.

Lists, on the other hand, I can do. I already did one for my http://personalitycafe.com/general-chat/10307-what-you-learned-2009-a.html thread, but I suppose I'll do a "top moments" one as well. Now, there are a lot of current events that generate a lot of discussion but haven’t really changed the way I do or think about things (like the Tiger Woods deal, Michael Jackson's death, or swine flu), so I won't list those. And I'm sure a lot of the things I will list won't mean all that much to you, but this is my list, not yours.

10. Blake Lively – Yeah, I went there. Sure, she’s not #1 (I’m not that obsessed with her, people!), but she did make the list. She shared an ice cream cone with Leighton Meester, dressed up in bondage gear and let another woman spank her for a movie role, and lifted up her skirt to get into the driver's seat of a Lexus SC430. All of these add up to someone who’s finally managed to get me excited about something that isn’t related to sports, training, or work. Of course, she’s also taught me that some people don’t share my taste in women, and that’s perfectly fine with me.

9. Passing the RD Exam on 9/9/09 – All my schooling, and all those Dietetic Internship hours, finally paid off as I passed my exam to become a Registered Dietitian, allowing me to move another step forward in my career.

8. The Yankees Ending an Eight-Year World Series Championship Drought – As I mentioned in my other list, seeing a city have something to cheer about makes all the negatives go away.

7. “Empire State of Mind” – While Jay-Z claims that he “made the Yankee hat more famous than the Yankees can,” it might have been the Yankees who made this song more famous than Jay-Z could, playing it for every Derek Jeter at-bat and having Jay-Z perform live at both a World Series game and the championship parade. Nonetheless, this is a great song for a great city. And while I normally have a disdain for “Part II” songs, Alicia Keys did a great follow-up as well.

6. The guy who wears this number on his jersey – In February, back when Brett Favre announced his “second retirement” and left the New York Jets, I posted a Facebook status “picturing Mark Sanchez throwing INTs in a Jets uniform next season.” Sure enough, the Jets traded up to draft Sanchez in April, and so far this season he has 20 interceptions to his credit. But at the same time, now he’s in a position to send the Jets to the playoffs with a win this week, while the Giants are out of playoff contention. Win or lose, at least he’s going to make this winter interesting . . .

5. 5/3/1This training program, created by former competitive powerlifter Jim Wendler, has created an Internet phenomenon, as countless gym-goers have used Wendler’s methods to break through strength plateaus. I started using this system a couple of months ago, and so far it’s been working quite well for me.

4. The Four-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss – Not many books have changed my way of thinking. This one has. If you want to learn how to stop “deferring” your life and “redesign” your lifestyle so you can do the things you want to do, while you are in the most physically capable years of your life, this is a must-read.

3. Training Three Days a Week – In 2009, I was working long, unpaid hours for my Dietetic Internship. With my lack of free time, my training was suffering. Cutting my usual upper/lower split training from four days per week to three (so I’d be working my entire body 1.5 times a week instead of two) made a huge difference in my productivity, both in and out of the gym.

2. PersonalityCafe – How could I forget you guys?

1. My Dad’s retirement – Even though my dad retired at a young age (he’s only 58 right now), in a way this was a “coming of age” for me. As he left the work force of his own accord, I am transitioning from school to the “real world.” And this is just the beginning.
