With 2006 ending and 2007 just around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to have the Bloggers of The Roundtable reminisce. So I ask of you all (and anybody else who ends up reading this post), what was one of your best years ever and why? Was it the year you had your first child? Was it the year in undergrad when you started scoring (and not on tests)? Perhaps it was the year you made the junior varsity basketball team. I know that commenting on this post may age you, but that's part of getting older and we all face it. Some of us are just behind the others.
For me, I would say that one of my best years was when I was 25, so that would be 1996. I had been working for a few years, had a cool roommate, a great social life with happy hours and parties, intramural soccer and volleyball made up much of my free time. I was relatively fit, had a woman in my life and always had something to do. I also hadn't gotten to the point where I had to think about marriage, my car insurance rates went down, and my expenditures were low so I was saving up some cash at my new job.
What was your "Summer of '69" type year? Check through those old planners you've stored on your bookshelves and let us all know.
