Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2005: It's seriously too short and your life doesn't last too long so you've got to jump at the chance when it hangs in front of you. Don't wait. (I loved this answer so much I am borrowing this also!

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
It seems like yesterday that my world fell from the sky
It seems like yesterday I didn't know how hard I could cry
It feels like tomorrow I may not get byBut I will tryI will try
Wipe the tears from my eyesI'm beautifully brokenAnd I don't mind if you know it
I'm beautifully brokenAnd I don't care if I show it
Everyday is a new dayI'm reminded of the past
Every time there's another stormI know that it won't last
Every moment I'm filled with hope cause I got another chance
But I will tryI will try
Got nothingLeft to hide
Without the highs and the lows
Where would we go
Where would we go
