    Default Personal hopes for 2009

    So, that time is almost upon us. Yep, it's just a man-made date but, there is something about a new year that feels like one chapter ending, another ....etc.

    What are your personal hopes for the coming 12 months?

    For me.....

    Of course, all the obvious - good lives for all my friends and family....

    and..

    I only moved to Germany this spring and workwise things have gone pretty well. Along with some contracted stuff, I'm also in the early stages of my own business too. As much as anything, I hope this all turns out for the best - of all the countries I've lived in, Germany feels like the best meritocracy and if you have a good idea and work hard, you can be rewarded. Maybe this is the year I can finally realise some of those ideas. If not, by the end of next year, I'm moving to Dubai.

    Wouldn't mind meeting the girl of my dreams either. Broke up with my last girlfriend more than a year ago and, at forty years old, I could do with some regular, no-drama company a bit more than I used to. You know the score - best friend who also happens to knock you dead ...... might be possible.

    Oh, and I hope this fucking stomach ulcer finally leaves me alone for good.

    How about you guys?

    A healthy 2009 for my family and friends of course. I hope for an upturn in the economy, which not only would help out my own household, but others as well.

    While I doubt it, I'd like 2009 to be a year where I don't lose any of my family or friends.

    While Amazon seems to have held together pretty well during the tough economic times, I feel like it's in my best interests to move on.

    I can't say that it will be soon, or may not even be at all during 2009, but I need a change, because despite the building being nearly a million square feet, I feel trapped inside that sonofabitch.

    I honestly hope to grow each and every day as a person and Christian, Learn something each day. If I gain something each day, when I look back at 2009 it will have been an amazing year.

    I need to get some stuff done on my home this year.

    2008 was a good year for me, I feel I am on a good track. I just want to keep on keeping on.

    And thats about what its worth.

    Outside of the obvious family health and happiness..

    Save more money. I'm fortunate enough to have not been affected by the economy. It's time to be ready for a time when inevitably we'll have to deal with our own financial hard times.

    Our backyard has lots of projects that I need to complete in the spring in order for the family to enjoy it all summer.

    Can someone post Steve Martins "Christmas Wishes" from SNL all those years ago?

    It about covers my wishes for 09.

    To plagerize a line from "Star Trek's Wrath of Khan flick I hope in 09 our new president and leaders realize that the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few or the one.

    I want to sell my house so that I can spend more time with my family in Florida and California and so that my parents can spend more time with their grandchildren

    I am willing to work as hard as anyone to make my business successful, but after 25 +years of doing something I don't really like, I hope the opportunity comes to either move on and do something very different, or make what I have better suit my needs.

    I wouldn't mind meeting a funny, smart and grounded guy either.

    I hope certain members of my family are able to resolve their situations an have less stress.

    I hope my nephews in college really find the path to a career that they love


    but more than anything, my wishful childlike soul hopes that somehow enough people the world over will realize the absolute insanity that is war ultimately benefits no one, and people will demand that our leaders find a way for us all to peacefully coexist.

    I hope my mother's health improves.

    I hope my brother finally finds a job.

    I hope I find an agent and get my book published.

    I hope I have time to finish school and get a decent job.

    Personal hopes:

    Hope for a decent raise, although, I should pay them to work for them, that is how much I dig my job lol. I make decent money the way it is, always could spend more, certainly not hurting for money.

    Hope my eldest son has great games playing basketball, he loves it, knows the game well, not the most athletic, takes after me.

    I hope there is little sickness in our family this year and even less stress.

    General hopes:

    I hope I can get some energy and enthusiasm back to take on some projects with the city here. I really enjoy working around town on my own and cleaning up messes. the last few years have gotten me down with negative people and complete bitchers. Lawd gimme strength! I want my hometown to be a place my kids can come back to with pride. So many people move away from here and never want to come back. Not a lot here at the moment, but we have been trying to change a few things.

    I hope our little city can keep up our minute amount of growth we have been getting the last year or so. Getting new grocery store, new school, new assisted living center...

    I hope Barack Obama can change the way things are done and can lead us into the land of milk and honey, or at least move us away from present policies.

    The end...Amen
