2011 Year in Rerview

In 2011, Aeverine Zinn (yours truly) has put colleagues, friends, and acquaintances though a trail of hear and the memories from 2011 remain. Memories of madness and cries of agony. A failure to find someone new to replace Christy Johnson as the girlfriend of yours truly, although a ruling on a dating/relationship policy ruled unconstitutional caused a yours truly to declare single for the first time in nearly 20 years. Also yours truly auditioned for the 11th season of American Idol and made the initial cut.

March 12 Two individuals (Joi Thurman and Kris Metzger) are the first (and only) to break “Jessica’s Policy.” Nearly 400 have complained about certain aspects of the dating/relationship policy ranging from deadlines and hurtful comments. A third and fourth individual are unfriended  for disrespectful comments.
15 Brittani G. has her title as my prom date stripped after an investigation that lasted nearly 10 years after evidence showed that she did not fulfill the obligations on April 28, 2001. It was also revealed that she indirectly caused the dismissal of yours truly from Indiana Wesleyan University on September 27, 2001.
After conducting her own investigation that started nearly 10 years earlier and tips that poured in following complaints of Jessica’s Policy and with the help of private detective Randy Weinstein and case coordinator Jenna McCoy, Aeverine Zinn stripped Brittani of her title as Zinn’s prom date and banned her for 20 years from participating in Aeverine Zinn-run events as either a date or a friend. Weinstein concluded that she knew about the the chain of events of Zinn that soon followed before it happened and displayed “a clear disregard for fairness, good sportsmanship and ethical behaviour”. The prom date title is still yet to determined.

December 23 I finally have a good month after Melanie Amaro wins the first season of “The X Factor”

In 2012, the stakes are even higher and more intense than ever before.

The friends, colleagues, and acquaintances will be put to the ultimate test in ways they’ve never imagined. Some will have the time of their lives. But for others it will be their worst nightmare and wish they’ve never been born.

2012 will be like anything you’ve ever seen in recent years.

What is at stake in 2012:

Carey Services Colleagues – An invitation to my 30th Birthday party (whether it is in Marion, Fort Wayne, or Indianapolis), for a majority of the colleagues and superiors.

Cornerstone/CSP – Renewal of treatment or may receive services at the Park Center in Fort Wayne or Gallahue Mental Health Services in Indianapolis–thus ending a 25 year relationship with Grant Blackford Mental Health.

You can bet I will even push my friends, colleagues, superiors, and acquaintences even harder than in years past.
