What were you doing in 2008?

I was a young man trying to get back on track and get his life together. Well, more like "trying", because I didn't put forth much effort.
I spent most of the year ill, and a couple of months in the hospital.

@bijouxbroussard I'm sorry. You survived though, and you're still here with us.
@SubstantialKick Yes, indeed.

@SubstantialKick I went thru my “Panther” stage in 1975, got an Afro, scowled at everyone and wrote really bad poetry about being misunderstood. Which no one understood. 😏

@bijouxbroussard Lol. I tried dressing like Soulja Boy and those popular hip-hop/rap stars at the time. I totally cringe looking back at that 🤣.
I moved to Australia that year

@SubstantialKick I'm not sure what you consider an 'actual' Australian

@raysam363 Could have gone better for me, if I hadn't been so lazy lol.

@SubstantialKick Don't be so down. I graduated during the "great recession" so the jobs I lined up fell through.
🤓 Small town girl livin in a lonely world.... 🤓 I was 18.
Discovering what a pack of cunts the majority of people are...
@SubstantialKick So did I, except that I thought that it was just localized and not a world wide phenomenon at that point...I learned about everyone else later..lol

I was married with my own home, savings and a great career job and completely unaware that it was all about to end.

I was going through a nasty break up and working in the world's worst school. I left London and soon moved back.

I can't remember what I was doing...I was probably wasted and had my pecker stuck up in some slut.

In between breakups of my 6-year, on-again, off-again relationship with a controlling narcissist. In other words, wasting my damn time.
