    Greetings guys,

    Another one of ''those'' threads, but I felt like starting one
    Basically I ask a question ''what are you proud of in life''

    I know we have a thread in the photo section about the picture that people are proud of, but theres other things

    Are you proud of your kids, of the way you play a specific sport/game, how much you weigh
    (after losing a lot of weight), are you proud of a world guiness record you own ?

    TELL ME

    Personally would have to be the weigh I bench press, weighting only 135 lbs I work out with 165 lbs and can lift up to 200ish
    (That's 65 lbs over might way, almost 1.5 times my weight)

    I'm proud of the fact I'm in the third year of completing 4 years of courses and retraining to qualify as a solicitor, whilst holding down a full time job in the Police. In the same time I have also renovated and sold two houses.

    Done a bit of lifting here, mostly casual, but I know it would take a good amount of discipline to get there, so good work. :)

    As for me, I am proud of the songs I've written over the years, and hope to be proud of an eventual CD release, regardless that it will almost certainly just be a small self funded project.

    I'm proud of the fairly niche-topic forum I created that's grown to have a total of over 110,000 posts.

    I'm proud that I didn't turn out to be one of the needy, dependant, in debt to their eyeballs, immature and with no self control type people that I work with.

    edit: oh, and 1 more adjective:

    HELPLESS

    I'm proud of my family, my wife and 2 kids. Both kids are a lot of work but they are great kids and couldn't ask for anything else. My wife manages well enough when I'm gone. I'm proud of myself at the fact I got backstabbed and used and spit out by various companies after doing lots of work for them and getting recognized in the process. I'm proud that I rose above the BS that is the Tech industry, got out of Nortel 'with severence' and continue to support my family financially on my own, continuing to own a house a car and lots of computers and provide my children on occasion with cool toys.

    People who I grew up with or knew during highschool would be surprised to see where I am now since I spent most of my time in highschool F'ing around.
