Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2005. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".
Jan: if today had a sound effect to go along with it, that sound would be "IEEEEEEEEEEEEEE".
Feb: well well well. I went home Wednesday at lunch because I felt ill.
Mar: I have this pit in my stomach today, but I don't think it's an omen....It could be, but I think I'm just worried and nervous about everyone around me who are finding themselves in terrible positions.
Apr: *knocks on computer screen* The pope is dying....fast. *looks at Mom*
May: oy vey! Going to the doctor this afternoon.
June: Good morning world (that wants to kill me slowly)!
July: hot....tired...stinky self...feet hurt...so dry, so dry...I've been working in the apartments all day.
Aug: apparently I'm doing something right:
Sept: Thank you for all the hugs and love yesterday.
Oct: Well, an update for everyone...I did quit my job on Friday.
Nov: I was going to make a phone post the other day, but it got noisy at the end so I didn't :).
Dec: So...still working too hard for a person making so little, but little by little we're somehow still treading water on the bills and my feet are becoming more accostumed to standing all day.
Conclusion: less whining this year :D
