So what did you acheive in 2007?

I know we're still a few good weeks away from it being over, but I figure this thread could survive a while. Hopefully. Or it could be page five in a few days. Who knows.

Jot down what you acheived in 2007, what you didn't acheive, what you want to acheive in 2008, whatever. Go ahead!

- Got drunk for the first time. Was one of the best nights I've had.
- Got my first kiss (though due to circumstances I don't really count it).
- Worked out some of my problems, and, as a result, I have been happier. These problems affect me nowhere near as much as they used to.
- Made my highest score in cricket.
- Was awarded the captain's award for season 2006/07.
- Took my first catch.
- Had my first cigarette. (I don't smoke, though I've had a few).
- Explored more music, namely Pink Floyd, David Bowie and The Beatles.
- Passed theology!
- Saw my confidence reach higher levels than ever before.
- Felt pretty damn good at myself, not all the time, but more often.
- Quit my job that I'd held for 14 months (after blowing up a $2000 car wash, taking a crucial key away for the weekend, and a few other mistakes).
- Got a new job as a shitkicker with tradesmen.

Vent! Vent!

Um, I'll get back to you on that. I mean, there's still a few weeks left, right? I'll try to accomplish something in that time. I finished school last year and was just completely disillusioned this year. I had an offer for a course in theology, but declined. I needed a break.

Not really big achievements - just things I did this year:

- Started driving (at 18 )
- Finished a short course in life (model) drawing
- Became fascinated with Islam (and actually, quite a lot of religions other than Christianity and Judaism)
- Legal drinking... and too much of it (yet not enough?)
- Some stupid decisions
- Managed to live through the shittiest year for the West Coast Eagles ever as a huge fan
- Lost track of time a lot
- Started appreciating pre mid '30s music, movies and cartoons more
- Got some positive replies from a few artists and companies - the biggest being Penguin books
- Started living in the city
- Bought a trumpet. I need a teacher.

Ah well, I'll get back on track next year.

- Graduated.
- Got accepted onto teacher training course at the same university.
- Started "teaching" at my first school and am enjoying it - most days - so far.
- Finally stopped putting off going to the dentist and got my teeth seen to. All I needed was one filling.
- Started eating better, 9lbs lighter so far.

And the best thing to happen in 2007 was getting engaged.
