What was the best thing you did in 2009?

Tell us. What was the coolest, best, most life-changing, earth-shattering, awesome thing that you did or that happened to you this year?

I didn't have the most exciting year...it was cool but I'm sure some of you guys have better stuff to share. But I have to start it off I guess. I moved into a new apartment by myself and fixed it up pretty nice and spiffy. I made the decision to start grad school in the spring. (Although that's kind of boring). My baseball team called up an amazing new 3rd baseman. Ummm, I managed to survive the entire year and stay out of jail.

It looks like that's more than one thing, so you can say more than one thing, I suppose.

The best thing that happened to me this year was that I accidentally hit enter on an IM I meant to delete.

How did you know what my answer was?

Alternatively, I went to Tasmania and drank heaps of beer, you can't really go wrong with that.

The best thing I managed to do this year was read a message that wasn't originally meant to be seen at all. And I didn't even have to stalk for it or anything.

It wasn't considered so derivative at the time. Just kinda.

There, there.

There just seem to be quite a few of them lately and it reminds me a bit of those workplaces where everyone is getting married or pregnant at the same time. One of those "is there something in the water?" kind of things.

Invite someone dear over to come see a U2 concert with me in Amsterdam

Other than that, a very big change of heart for myself

Probably the worst year for me on record, based on various things. Did win a marketing competition that was pretty special and kinda uncovered a hidden talent I had for public speaking. Met this amazing girl and spent an amazing morning/night with her, but nothing proper has developed as yet...for some reason

Took a chance on love. Ended up getting hurt but it was worth it.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Traveled to Dublin and NC for the concerts and met some wonderful people along the way and am happy to call them friends. I can't wait to see them again this summer.

Tied with that is my vacation to London and Paris.

Traveling to Chicago and Vegas to meet friends, have fun and see U2. Both were amazing times, and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

Yeah, me too. Did something out of the norm for me, ended up back on the dating horse for a few months. Some minor pain after two months, but it was worth it.

Meeting U2 outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater and having Bono sign my NLOTH CD.

But other than that, 2009 has been really disappointing for me.
