-Open my own business (Dec 31 will be a full year)
-Concert wise saw a lot of memorable shit; Roger Waters, Coldplay, Arcade Fire, Damien Rice, Snow Patrol, etc
-Went to NY for the 2nd time
-Finally realize I won't stay young forever

What I failed to achieve; roadtrip through Mexico for a month, buy a new car (hopefully next year)

Lets see 2007

Has been another wasted shit filled year.

Keep telling myself to lose weight, hardly lost any even though I rode my bike everyday, gave up at 3 months.

Failed relationships

Had to start taking blood pressure pills, because I get pissed off sometimes at myself, I have wrote about it in ZooConfessionals a while ago.

Debt

Still in School/living with parents while going to school, cause the bay area rent sucks ass.

Constantly remind my self how much life sucks and write about it in my book.

Hopefully 2008 will be much kinder.

Actually the only good thing about 07 is my friends and I started are first website, and that I go home everyday and chill with my dog who is my best buddy.

2007 was a tough year for me.

First off, I'm very happy that I remained in good health. But, beside that, not a whole lot of great things happened.
First, my fiancee and I cancelled/postponed our wedding. Then, a few months after that, we broke up, but with a possible chance of getting back together. Then, finally, we broke up for good. So, that was tough, because I really loved my fiancee. But, we did have some issues that I guess couldn't be resolved, so that's the way it goes.
Anyway, I think 2008 should be a better year for me. For whatever reason, I seem to like even numbered years better.

Hang in there mate, some years are better than others.

The only real amazing thing for me this year was that, amidst all of my confusion, I have had no idea where to spend my money, so I got tens of thousands of dollars lying in the bank....

care to share some of that?

let's see, my accomplishments:

- went back to school (a great accomplishment for me, especially as i have a 90-something in my history class when history is so not my strong suit)

- relearned how to drive and bought a car (this is the hugest accomplishment! after my accident i'd developed a huge fear of driving, so to be over it is amazing, like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. plus i was able to get the loan through the car company myself with no cosigner!)

- (hopefully) made some headway where my job is concerned so i can get a promotion either here or in another department

- saw a ton of great concerts and met just about everyone i saw

the only bad thing is now i have a ton of debt, but oh well. now i have a resolution for 08!

2007 has been the best in a long time. I didn't do a lot outside of school but it's more than enough to make up for all of the bad years lately. I've had the most amazing time since January 8, 2007.

-started a life long dream of going to culinary school to become a Pastry Chef.

-met 2 of the most amazing people ever, at school, that I know I'll be friends with for life. Plus many other really great people at school that I hope I'll know for a long time.

-quit my full time job for school. It was the 2nd best decision I've ever made. It was nothing but a toxic environment that I needed to get out of my life.

-have the highest grade point average I've ever had (3.8 and counting). Plus I've managed to get perfect attendance at school, which is huge. Also, joined the student council.

-received the job offer of my dreams at a resort in Arizona when I'm finished with school in 2 months. It's only a temporary externship but it could open tons of doors for me.


I didn't manage to pay off any debt, lose weight, or find the man of my dreams but that'll be for 2008!

- Saw Crowded House

- Met jen, cin and ali!!!

This year was pretty good all in all.

My main goal for 2008 is to lose some of very stupid inhibitions. I say that now, but it's going to be very hard for me to do it. I know that if I let go of them my life will probably end up much better but that's just the person I am.

Had a party and at said party smoked like a million Marlboro 100 Lights with Kieran McConville, Calluna, Zoomerang96, cujo, inmyplace13, DaveC, Zootlesque, Dalton, joerags, Canadians1160 and Windmilllane.

It was shockingly fun.
