Only a few weeks left before year 2012 begins. Before we say goodbye to 2011, let us recall what we have achieved this year. A lot of things have happened to me this 2011, some are good while some not so good. I do not want to dwell on the not so good ones so I'll tell you the great things that happened to me. This year, I have two great accomplishments. First, I became a permanent (regular) employee in my school. The other one is that I was able to start my MA education. I thank God for the blessings He has given me. How about you? What have you accomplished this year?

i have written four chapters of my novel, over 200 articles, went on vacation, got this new computer, tried to get my teeth fixed, my granddaughter had her son, moved back to my daughter's apartment after her worst manic episode, and gained another fourty pounds or more.

Great achievements! Sometimes, even if we are not the ones who are experiencing problems, if it is the one we love, it becomes our problem too. It is hard to be a parent. But then again, our children give more meaning to our lives.

Two things that were good from this year was the birth of my daughter in January and then recently finding out about our second child will be coming into our lives this next years. Finding a bigger place for all of us to live.

My accomplishments this year have a lot to do with a bad thing that happened to me. I discovered that I had a lymphoma. It´s cancer, not curable but can be put in remission with luck and it´s a slow grower. I needed chemo. What I feel is an accomplishment (and I´m very proud of myself) is that, in spite of the news, in spite of the blad head, in spite of everything, I have not been depressed and I decided to live a good quality of life instead of crying. My life has been blessed although I have had pains and sorrows like all the rest of the people in the world. So I´m happy.

We are all fighting for life, eunique. A while ago I went to the super and there was a TV with news on. There had been a car accident and a young mother and her baby had lost their lives. Noone knows what lies ahead. And cancer is not the only illness in the world. Anyway, I was lucky. I responded well to chemo although my cancer is stage IV and it is on remission.

I don't think I accomplished what I wanted to in 2011! 2011 was a crazy year! I lost my part-time job but now it has become a causel part-time job! With my full time job we finally got rid of the awlful boss we had and they hired the nice guy who worked under him! I celebrated 10 years on the job! I found out I am going to be an aunt again! I wanted to get my weight under control but that didn't happen! I wanted to learn something new on the computer but that didn't happen! Had hemarroids,a colonostcomy and developed a rash down there that I have not been able to clear up! My apartment had some weatherizing done on it. My landlord gave me a new refrigerator! A got a better bed! Didn't go anywahere on vacation! Can't save up money for like car repairs! My nephew who's in the Navy is in Japan. So my life in 2011 has been up and down! I hope 2012 will be more of a consistent year!

There's always room for hope. Let us expect the coming year to be the best year ever. A little positive thinking may help us face the year ahead. Have a nice day, blue65packer!

Congratulations my dear friend. I am happy for you. It is always good to hear so many happy people having done wonderful accomplishments in their lives. Keep it up. As for me, I have accomplished becoming a mother again. I had borne my little Naya on September 11, 2011. And now she is almost 3 months old. And I am so happy with my children. There might not be a lot of new things that are happening to me, but everything will always be new to me because my children happiness and their everyday joy that they bring to me will always be new and will constantly be new treasures that I will cherish forever. Take care.

2011 was a great year for me. A lot accomplishment that I have to share. Here are the things that happened to me this year. 1. I passed the Nurse Licensure Examination. 2. I have my very first job, I worked in a Call Center Industry,although not related to my profession but still having a work is really a blessing. 3. I learned how to appreciate the existence of others. 4. I met someone online, and I admit I really liked him so much. The characteristic that he has is the one that I'm looking for, for a perfect mate. 5. I'm know aware of my flaws when it comes to Grammar. 6. I now know how to be financially free. 7. and Lastly, For this year I started to read a lots of book with different kind of genre.

I sent my kids to an other and way better school. I am happy I did this after the former school nearly broke my (now 8 year old) son. My kids are so more happy now and I thank myself for that.

I managed to pay off two of my credit cards. And, although I had serious problems this year, I learned how to handle it and I managed to get on top of the situation. I am optimistic about next year.

It wasn't so much of a year of accomplishing things, but a year where I had to learn to let things go. It seemed like a year that had to do an about face and clean house for me. I lost my job, my apartment, ran into health issues, and dealt with the harsh reality of stagnant bureaucracy. On the flip side of it, this has been a year where everything I have right now, I fought to get it. I also took on governments, bureaucracies, companies, corporations, the law, all at once when they tried to bury me. I also have done some volunteer work, which is funny because I have actually moved up in the organization I am volunteering for. The jobs I worked for positions to try and move up never came, so this is the first time I have actually moved up anywhere. I feel empowered going into 2012, but I hope all of the drama remains in 2011.

We have our own ups and downs in life. I am not as active in my career as I used to this year. That's why I only wrote two significant achievements. I feel that 2011 is a year when I recharge my energies for greater success in the coming years. I hope 2012 will bring better prospects for all of us.

Last year I moved into my bungalow. I have had some things make where I live better and more suitable for my family. I had a door and ramp put in to give my disabled son wheelchair access. I got five new double glazed windows. I have had two rooms painted: my kitchen green and my front hall pink. I have made my back garden look tropical with hardy looking palm like trees and plants. I have done some clutter clearing. My latest project is making my garage more storage options. I wish to store my bike and boxes on a shelving unit. I have a handy man coming round on Monday to help me. In 2012 I have some lovely plans.

It must have been fun decorating and renovating your home. I have a few plans for mine as well. I need to buy new seat cushions and to fix the plumbing. I hope to get them done before we say good bye to 2011.

I have got a good job this year and started investing in shares to earn good money. Money matters in this world rather than good heart.

respect your opinion, writersolutions10, but though I think money is important it is not the most important thing the world. There are a lot of things that money can't buy. I think that in business even big investors would think twice at investing if they know that the business man has only money in his mind.

I don't have much I can say that I have accomplished this year, but this year I got promoted to assistant manager at my job. I also started a traffic exchange and paid off the website designer. More importantly I have grown even closer to my fiancé and i feel our relationship has grown even strong. Honestly, this year hasn't been the best of years for me, but I have a feeling this year will be even better.
