    Got high every day. Around that time (probably a year earlier) started listening to dubstep while it was still dubstep. Still thought it was a bit shit and carried on with dnb.

    Was just entering my lost 5 years, hardcore clubbing the 5 years before descended into bodily abuse of an extreme level, fucked up everyday, literally cant remember anything between 2003-8, not that there was anything exciting to remember slouched over.

    ah 2003! what a time that was.
    the international year of freshwater and european disability year.

    i was mainly celebrating those 2 things in an appropriate fashion.

    but it wasn't all fun and games. oh no!
    2003 brought the passing of barry white, charles bronson and johnny cash :lighter:

    GCSE year at secondary school, long hair, drinking a lot and first having mushrooms/regular-ish smoke with an awesome set of friends.

    Also online gaming a lot at that point, but balancing it with a reasonably good social life.

    Also, I'd just been the first young person ever to be elected to the board of directors of a national charity, and had helped the government set up a unit and was advising where they should be spending money on young people. At that point I went to 10 Downing Street to meet Blair and the minister for children, got invited to receptions and meetings at westminster palace, house of lords, house of commons etc... Commuting 3 times a month to London like a boss.

    Was a very fun time in life. And I got all of my good deeds out of the way so I can act like a bellend for the rest of it.

    I'd just moved into my first house with the missus in anticipation of my son being born.

    Mortgage, bills and responsibility were all I had to look forward to.

    This thread had been missing some of that good old Northern optimism.

    Hahaha. Its not all doom and gloom. We split up when my our son was 2 and a half, I got 8 grand when she bought me out of the mortgage and I went on an 18 month bender before we got back together.

    You know what? in 2003 I think my life was the shittiest any person could have, so I think my mind just blocked the memories. I can't remember anything I have done in 2003.
