5 Most Significant Events Of Your Life:

I'm bored, and I don't get the chance to post much anymore... so come on people, list the 5 Most Significant Events Of Your Life- the things that changed you some how, the things that made you who you are today.

Mine would be

1) The night of an Anzac Day party, April 1998. I realised that I wasn't invincible. And guys can be bastards. I got over it, but I'll never forget what a certain guy did to me.

2) Quitting school- August 12, 1998. Best decision of my entire life. I was 15 years old and half way through the 10th Grade (australian school year structure)

3) The death of a boyfriend, Ben, in April 1999. I realised we won't all live forever and my own mortality dawned on me.

4) Getting a job in the Billing Department at my current place of employment, in December 2003. Solely based on the fact that I was most likely the best looking candidate, had the best cleavage, and the highest stilettos. Job References and Experience got me no where. Appearances get you everywhere. (Every previous job interview I had had in the prior 6 months, I looked proper and professional and put the emphasis on my experience and skills... I was getting desperate so decided to glam it up, and flirt with the all male interviewing board. A year and a half, and 3 promotions later, I'm still doing alright)

5) The steamy, humid night in New Orleans, October 2004. Literally sitting in a gutter, tears welling up in my eyes, with rats running past me, and some old lady dragging a bag across the street staring at me. No money. No battery left on my phone. Ripped dress. Shoes that ached. No idea where in hell I was. Feeling very violated. I definately had a lot of realisations that night.



They'd be my 5. I sound like such a self centered person. Hmmm.

2. Catching the (at the time) love of my life doing something I'd prefer not to mention & it tore my life apart. (2001)

3. Graduating from HS (2000)

4. Moving out from my parents house!! (2001)

5. Realizing that love & relationships are not the most important thing in life!!!

5 Most Significant Events Of Your Life:

1) First time I was ever intimate with a girl (not sex). I was in shock and didn't believe it actually happened (December, 2001).

2) Being in a car accident, a car flipping 3 times at 70 mph and no I was not the driver (November 1st, 2003).

3) Extremely hurting this girl who is now my best friend and realizing I was head over heels in love with her 2 days later and still am to this day (June 2004).

4) The same girl wrote a letter to me on Christmas eve telling me how special I am to her and how much she loved me even if she doesn't show it enough which caused me to cry, and then 2-3 weeks later telling me she can't rely on me anymore because I'm up at school (which was probably just an excuse to get rid of me so she could guilt freely hook up with other boys, December 2004-January 2005).

5) Getting my baby, the Mazda 3 (May 8th, 2004).

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

5 Most Significant Events Of Your Life:

In order of importance.

1. Birth of my son on August 17, 2004

2. Marriage to my babe on Sept 27, 2002

3. Asking my girl to marry me on her birthday April 12, 2002.

4. Getting set up with my girl sometime in the summer of 1998.

5. Closing on our house with my wife July 25, 2003.

Maybe #4 should be #2 since the other wouldn't have happened without that.

5 Most Significant Events Of Your Life:

geez and i find it hard to just like 2 guys at the same time

1.) graduating from high school and realising that real life is nothing like it

2.) sudden death of my uncle - made me realise that I should have spent more time getting to know him

3.) burnouts of certain friendships - regardless of how nice you are, people will still use and abuse you to their heart's content

4.) falling soo deep in love that i couldn't see a way out even after we broke up - time does heal all wounds, he's still a jerk though and his new gf isn't so nice either

5.) finally getting to work with a great boss and being confident in my ability to do my job

I like cheese
