I lived all my teenage years in it and then my early adult years. I finished school, entered the work force etc. Footy wise it wasn't great with 2013-14 serving as the only real bright patch for my team.

I moved house into a unit, then moved into my current house. Am going to move again soon. In terms of jobs I left a long term job in 2016 as a result of bullying and into my current job and I’m much happier , I just got my permanency. Relationship wise a big fat nothing , liked a couple of people but they didn’t feel the same way. My son has now finished high school . I’ve lost weight and bought a new car. Travelled overseas to Europe in 2014 with my son . Went to Gold Coast in 2013 and Melbourne in 2010, 2013 , 2016 and just been now for Xmas. That’s me. Oh I started attending my church in 2016 and started to help run a women’s group last year. That’s me.

2012 - Eurotrip
2012 - Bought our house
2016 - Had our first child
2019 - Wife is 40 weeks and 2 days pregnant right now. Would be a great finish to the decade to complete our family.

The 2010s will always be the most formative years of my life by far, considering I was 10 at the turn of the last decade and am now 20. Pretty much my entire adolescence in this decade, from being a gifted but awkward school kid to forming my identity in high school to going off the rails after graduating. Still remember very well staying up past my bed time to be awake for 01/01/10.

Changed careers. Became an uncle. Joined Big Footy. Went overseas a few times. Switched jobs. Moved twice. Hit and am running through my 30s. Pies premiership + 2 GFS + 2 PFs.
Been an interesting decade. A lot has happened that's changed my perspective on things. Improved in some ways gone backwards in others. 20s will be an interesting decade

Pretty good overall

Met my partner and got married.
Went back to uni, finished a degree and successfully moved into another career.
Travelled overseas a few times.

There were a few down periods with a few deaths in the family and some dramas but it cant be all smooth sailing.

2013 father died
2014 best mate died.

2018 had the most awesome job and met the most awesome people.Then got a broken heart
2019 was full of drama sex travel intrigue skeletons romance supernatural action truth

In between a few attempts on my life and some fings many would never understand. In between that some study in some fings and in between that a few heroes shattered. And in between that see a few troofs become public.

happy new year everyone!

Started off the decade by turning 30. Retired from cricket after 22 seasons. Moved to Melbourne which was a lifelong dream for some reason. Broke up with my exwife, met loz who even after 3 years i'm still smitten with. Started down a new career path last year. Travelled overseas, went to Disneyland, saw the grand canyon. Reached rock bottom in 2016 when I tried to throw myself off the bolte but thankfully couldn't go through with it. I'm now as happy and content with my life as I've ever been

It was a great decade for me.

2010/11 I built and maintained friendships I still have today - two mates who were my groomsmen.
2012 - Went to Europe
2013 - Saw Bruce 5 times (dream come true), went to Europe again
2014 - Saw Bruce another 5 times, went to NZ, met my now wife
2015 - Got my first "proper job"
2016 - Bought an apartment
2017 - Moved out of home and in with my now wife. Bought a new car. Proposed. Went to New York.
2018 - Got a promotion at work, and worked bloody hard for it. Saw a heap of friends get married
2019 - Got married, changed jobs - twice - went to the US on my honeymoon, bought house and land. Found out my dad has terminal cancer.

Pretty solid decade really. I'd give it a 9.5/10.

Started the decade in a share house on the Gold Coast with mates where one of those mates were for months keeping the rent we were paying, so one day the owner rocks up and asks what we are doing there. He'd given 'our mate' an eviction notice weeks before.

Ended the decade married, living overseas, travelled to 25 different countries, owning 2 properties in the South of France and 2 Richmond premierships.

Top decade, would do it all again.

What happened to him and the money?

What happened to him and the money?
Well he was hiding from us the eviction notice obviously, and was trying to get the cash. The night before the owner turned up on our door he got drunk(with money we had leant him) and tried to rob a taxi, who proceeded to fight with him and eventually ran over his thigh, breaking his leg and needing skin grafts from his ass as he had, along with his broken leg, tyre imprints on his thigh.

Eventually the owner didn't hold me and the other mate responsible but took broken leg mate to court who did eventually pay the money. Last I heard of him, around 2014 was he was living in Lismore and had a kid with a woman he picked up when selling stuff over the phone.
