this year was pretty much a sucky year on a personal level but on a professional level, I had a pretty decent year. So I guess I'll just say that my one and only 2009 U2 concert in Vegas was the best thing about 2009. It was a much needed moment of peace in my life....

2009 was a decent year for me. Here are some of the highlights:

March- U2's new album came out, broke up with my girlfriend (yes, that was a good thing)
August- visited Maine with my sister and her family and had a blast
September- Pearl Jam's new album came out, saw U2 live for the 10th time
November- on my birthday (11/4) the New York Yankees won the 2009 World Series to capture their 27th Championship

Financially, 2009 was a nightmare for me. And I'm afraid 2010 will most likely be worse.

But the best thing for me, was seeing U2 for only the second time ever.

She's too good for you man.

Best things for the year. . . .
finally admitted to myself and everyone else that I'd married the wrong guy, found a beautiful new best friend along the way.
Hopefully the new year will see me finally grow up a little and live how I want to without guilt.

I'll just say ditto

and add...

- losing my "U2 Live" virginity in Vegas and Pasadena
- meeting the most incredible blue crack friends
- decluttering my life in so many, many ways
- being ecstatic to start fresh in 2010 and not look back

Not as cool as most of the others, but I accomplished a lot of things with my dogs that I'd only ever dreamed about before. I bought my first vehicle! I got to the original principle balance on my student loans (yeah, I've been paying interest for years). Got closer with some new friends, stayed close with some old friends, and lost touch with some friends that maybe never were friends.

Although it's not really something I "did", what made 2009 awesome for me was that none of my loved ones died. I've not been able to say that for some time. I feel very lucky this year for that. Yes, there have been some downs, but having my loved ones still here with me today as this year comes to an end makes it the best year in awhile.

And congrats to you, beegee
and everyone else on their accomplishments. I hope the new year brings you all happiness.

2009 was not the easiest year for me. My mom was pretty sick this year, and it turns out she has type 2 diabeetus and emphysema(never smoked WTF?). Also struggled financially. But I had some bright spots. One was seeing my mom take control, lose weight, and get her diabetes under control. She has her good days and bad days with her breathing, but it's been better. And she's starting to feel well enough to go back to work. So that is a pretty good way to close out 2009. Some highlights:

-Saw U2 with a fellow blue cracker(and one of my best friends )
-Met some awesome U2 fans from here and formed new friendships
-Got another puppy
-Turned 21
-reconnected with some good friends from high school

The best thing in 2009 for me was the christening of my niece (biggest family get-together in years) , to see U2 in London and in Zagreb plus to get an autograph from Bono. The rest of 2009 was fairly average and therefore I am looking forward to 2010...little US and Portugal roadtrip and to see U2 in Anaheim I & II, Denver, Oakland, Seville & Coimbra.
