at AW...

I was going to start a "highlights/lowlights" thread, aimed more at what happened in your own life... I take it this is more the "global" big variety?

Worst: I agree, Katrina, hands down.

Best: dang... I'll edit when I can think of one!

Best: Passed the last stats class I'll ever have to take (advanced multi-variate statistics...or something like that)

Worst: While out one night downtown I had my credit card stolen, cell phone broken, lost 4 phone numbers I got that night (b/c of the broken phone), got over-charged on the cab ride home because I couldn't reach my friends via cell, got locked out of the house because my keys were at my friends, bruised my thigh/ass because I had to break OUT of the pool area (I had to kill time to wait for my housemate to get home). Oh, and I had a WICKED hang over the next day. I also lost out on at least 1 booty call because my phone was busted.

Best: Tie between paying off my CCs and going back to school

Worst: resigning myself to a whole wack of student loan debt

This has been a pretty decent year if that's my worst.

OK fine then, if everyone else is posting personal best/worst:

WORST: the experience of ramping up for a lawsuit against the driver who ran a red light and almost killed me a few years ago... it was settled a week before the actual court date, and was the most unpleasant, painful, horrific experience what with all the depositions, paperwork, harrassment, etc...

BEST: a tie between finally picking a place to move to (I've been wanting to move out of state for YEARS) and then the bizarre coincedence of meeting someone online who lives that same place... and how well we hit it off...
