It was a very good year… Frank Sinatra....
Hi there folks!
Where can I start really?! This year has probably been one of the best yet for me! And I most definitely mean that! A lot of major changes in the love life, in the work situation and (there will be) in the housing situation!
Things weren’t particularly great back home. In July 2004 my parents decided that they wanted a break from married life and my Dad walked out on us. I was devastated and my whole world had been turned upside down. To make matters worse it happened 4 days before my 18th birthday. Which is supposed to be a special day, but it was completely fucked. Thankfully they sorted out there differences and we soldiered on into 2005.
My year started off like any other really, a quiet family New Years eve with plenty of booze in the house. I don’t really like this time of year, it’s just a mad excuse to get severely drunk and suffer for a couple of days!
For a few months I had been planning a holiday with a mate of mine to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This was steadily approaching us, and we were both getting pretty anxious about it. All of the final details were finalised and we sat back to make sure the time eased passed.
In the mean time I was off on a mini trip to the USA with an A.netter. We accomplished the DC-10 & DC-9 together, something that I wanted to do for a while. Great weekend with lots of memories!
Finally Los Angeles was upon us and we jet set away. Great holiday with many many great memories to come back home with. Suffered with depression for weeks and weeks after returning, California certainly stole my heart and I could not possibly ever forget the awesome time that I had with my friend out there, not ever.
Life carried on as normal, work was it’s usual boring self. Until something happened. A colleague of mine was found in possession of Class-A drugs with intent to supply. He was pretty much screwed. He left the company on his own accord and that meant a nice little “promotion” for me was just about to happen. Instantly I found myself in a better position.
My love life remained pretty dry but I did have an encounter with my ex girlfriend that I really do regret ever having, it was best to let sleeping dogs lay down in this case. It wasn’t too much of an issue for me anyway, I really did live a single guy’s life back then! (Oh how much I DO
NOT miss those days!!)
Once that kafuffle was over with, I soldiered on. Working on my career as I entered my 3rd year of service with my company, things were better than ever! This was noticed through out the entire workforce. It’s good to hear from various members of staff about your adaptation to copious work loads.
I celebrated my 19th birthday with out no family disruptions and it was a relief to finally see my parents happy once more. My brother however was causing himself no end of problems. He’s always been in trouble with the law and is a bit of a gangster to be honest. Me and him had a few pints of Guinness and a couple of JD
shorts on my birthday, and I’ve not seen him since.
The summer was great, there were a few A.net meets at LHR
. I’ll never forget these good times, and all the faces that I met once more. Nor will I forget all of the good friends that I have made from this site, after all this is the new way of meeting people for me.
As I entered the tail end of the summer months I got myself into a bit of a situation with money. I’m over zealous at times and end up spending way too much. I’ve since learned that if I can’t afford it I can’t have it. Simple. Saying that I went and booked another holiday which I’m going to be going on in 2 weeks! Miami, San Juan and Saint Maarten!
Something happened to me at around September/October time. I had been talking to this amazing girl for quite a while, but never really thought anything of it. Suddenly I found myself developing a massive crush on her. I’m not sure how mutual the feelings were, but there were most definitely some kind of feelings that made me feel great. After all we were just friends at the time. I kinda kept it near and then the situation arose to finally meet her. I hesitated because of the finances, but I jumped at the middle of October and booked myself on a flight to Amsterdam.
In case you are all left wandering what the fuck I am on about, I’m talking about another A.netter here. Our feelings for one another became very apparent with a few weeks to go before we would finally meet. I was most definitely entering a stage in where I felt there could be something between us.
The day finally came for us both, and excitement built up to an uncontrollable level for me. When I landed I was trembling with fear and excitement. As soon as I set my eyes on her, I fell in love. One thing led to another that afternoon, and we found ourselves enjoying each others company. I’ve not looked back since, this girl is amazing. (We’ll touch on this later!)
More developments at the workplace, two of my colleagues walked out on us leaving me in a very sweet situation. Instantly I was in a much better position than I was in the first instance. Money is good, responsibilities are huge. One cannot complain!
As for my love life, I’m desperately in love with the world’s most beautiful woman. Her name is Sharron and I’m crazy about her. We’re moving in together in the New Year and I’m so excited about this. She means the world to me and we’re madly in love with each other.
As far as I can see 2006 will be 100 times better than this year, because I will be with the girl of my dreams and in our own place together. I will be in a good position to really start moving up in the world and making plans for bigger and better things.
Thank you all so much for reading, I appreciate it.
