hi mylotters. the year is about to end. looking back i may say that this year is not my year. i had so much trials and challenges this year which i thought i could not surpass. but on the brighter side, i could still smile @ 2008 because as i count my blessings this year, could definitely say that God is faithful to me this year because He never leave me or forsake me in the midst of my turmoil. I had a new house, new job and new business venture this year. what a blessing! i realized that no matter how many bad things happened to me this year, counting my blessings made me say that God is really good. Im looking forward to be much more better year in 2009. how about you? thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts.

In retrospect, even though I don;'t have a data entry gig at the moment, 2008 would probably come as the most productive year in my work. The project got easier and we found a payment method that better suits our needs. It was a great year overall. I do hope 2009 will be another slam bang affair!

Same is with me. Start of 2008 was somewhat mixed of good and bad things. Half of it went not so good, living in loneliness as I departed from my loved ones. Really got sick of it. Started looking for jobs but it's pretty hard to get job in the place where 'give local priority' shitz is running in. felt real 'f*ck*d uP'.. but after 2 quarters past, things started turning good to me. So, it's both bad and good for me.

2008 has been both a wonderful one as well as a trying one. One of the greatest things is that my spiritual life has grown in leaps and bounds. I was baptized in August as a show of my faith in the Almighty. I am going through a stressful trial but I know that I will have the victory soon. 2008 is the launching pad for my life increase in 2009. Be blessed.

Well, I've had my share of ups and downs, probably like a lot of people. Yes, I think that there are some moments that could have been better. But in the end, I can't really complain. I'm content with how my 2008 went. I just think about what I have, a loving fiance, amazing friends, in the process of getting my Bachelor's, a family, I was able to get an incredible job experience over the summer. When I think of those things, I couldn't have asked for better, or for more.

I would say God as always has been very good to me. The year 2008 is filled with blessings and so with trials. What is important to me is that God is always with me through all the circumstances of my life. Good or bad times...He is always with me and so I believe each year will always be a good one for as long as I remain in the loving hands of God. I thank God for having blessed me with a wonderful family. This is more than I could every ask for.

This year has not been so great!! We have gone through alot of changed in 1 yr that I could have done with out. On the other hand though it did bring a job to my husband (but he is being laid off Jan 9th 2009) and has put us in a new home, but we probably will be loosing all of that in 2009 again. To be honest the past 2 yrs have been difficult on and off. Hopefully 2009 may start off hard but I am hopeing that it will change our luck and we can just live with a little less stress for just a little while. We both really need a break!!!! I can say at least we have been healthy and still are in good health for 2008!!! Thank you God!!!! Shihtzumama

My year was not that good as i expected it to be alot better. I came to foreign country to study in this year. And the life here is not as good as i thought it would be. But i think i have made the right decision as far as studies are concerned. I use to stay upset most of the time because i was not able to meet my parents this year. I hope 2009 would be alot better for me than 2008. Be happu. keep mylotting

I have had one of the worst years in 2008.many things went wrong for me personally and all in all it has been a bad year for me and my family.but the best thing that happened to me which made the year tolerable was me getting introduced to online sites like mylot, ciao,helium.i could forget my worries as long as i was with all of my fellow members and friends on these sites and make some earnings too - I am so glad there are places like these online which give happiness and a sense of purpose to so many people :)

2008 has been a bad year for me. This year itself, i've failed to accomplish something, and to make things worse, it's not something hard to achieve. But it's been a pretty big slap on my face, because i cannot really accept failures when it's something that i'm moulding and have full control in my own hands. And, the worst part is, i've only seen my loved one twice, this year. Only twice.

2008 was a very weird and fun year. I've been to the best parties of my life and met some of the best people in my life. Wrestling wise, my career flourished. I was in the main event at the historic Apolo Theater in my town. That was a very big deal to me and still is. Relationship wise, I've had some hot girlfriends. I mean, very cool people I've dated. They all ended for one reason or another, I'm not here to judge. I have also started dating a girl I used to date in 2007 again this year. I'll still be dating her through out 2009 I'm sure. I stopped being friends with one of my best friends. He was talking trash on me over and over to this girl that I wanted to date. So therefore, I tried sabotaging his relationship with his girlfriend and he got mad and we aren't friends now. He tried fighting me in the wal mart parking lot a few months ago. That was funny because I was down to throw down and he just stayed in his car yelling at me. It's funny how people think they are big and bad. Overall, 2008 was a great year and I look forward to the next year. Happy mylotting!

Lot of good and bad happened to my life in the year 2008.In life we cannot expect only good thing happen to our life.A small incident can turn everything in our life.I think nothing is in our control.A mysterious supernatural force is controlling all our day to day activities.I am hoping that year 2009 brings lot of happiness and joy in my life.
