    Bit like that line out of "Time" by Pink Flooyd :

    "Ten Years have got behind you everythings the same in a relative way but your older..etc "
    Get a bit depressing after that bit

    hmm... mixed year.

    lost decent job. got another shit job. then got a sweet job im workin in now.

    the band i was in broke up as we were about to release our album. they then reformed without me and a couple of the other members.

    been to a shitload of wicked nights, met a load of new safe people, made some friends that'll be around for a long long time.

    broke up with my girlfriend of 4 1/2 years, which was in all fairness, shit.... but....

    ...then went to america and came back totally refreshed and rejuvinated and fully back on track now.

    discovered i fucking love red wine.

    got a nice pair of decks and got fully on course with turntablism after threatening to do it for years.

    saw glassJAw at the barfly whilst buzzin on mdma, it was truely the single most greatest experience of my life.

    went arse to mouth.......




    jokes!

    My year was a relatively good one.

    Only had one low point that I can think of, but it was one of the biggest low points I've had in my life, which was breaking up with my girlfriend of 6 years.


    On the plus side however:

    my business started to break even so it was good to finally get back all the money I'd invested. And I've put that money back into another business venture.

    Got more involved in the china dnb, met a lot of good people and met a lot of headz in the dnb scene. Also got more involved in other scenes and gave me some encouragement to try to do some other things.

    Started in the singles game and had lots of fun exciting sex with lots of nice birds (which after 6 years is top banana), and realised that I'm still wicked inna bed.

    I go home to England on thursday, the first time I'll have been back home in 4 years, so it will be good to finally see my family and friends again.

    Got promoted twice this year in my day job to a very good salary.

    Bought some shares in a bank, and they've done very well. Also saved a lot of money over the year so feels good to look at the hole in the wall and see a number with plenty of digits belonging to me.



    All in all, was a very good year for me.
