it's coming whether you like it or not.

here are the things to discuss:

1. did 2008 rule or suck for you and why.
2. are you doing anything fun for new year's eve.
3. what are your new year's resolutions.

2008 was a pretty EXTREME year for me and both ruled and sucked a whole lot. I think it sucked more than it ruled.

my new year's eve activities are partying till the breaka breaka dawn with one of my best friends in the greater boston area and finding at least one ice sculpture, preferably shaped like a bear.

my new year's resolutions include getting my credit out of the gutter, dedicating more time to creative pursuits, and getting a job that's either stable or super duper fun. (man new year's resolutions are always so boring.) also I want to shoot myself out of a cannon. (better)

    My list of resolutions for 2009 is just a list of guys here that I plan to rape

    It's not a huge list, but given that it is a rape list it's considerably long

    I was flipping out last night 'cause I thought I had missed new years by like four days.


    not that I plan on doing anything, but it was frustrating till I realized I hadn't.

    2008 has been one fucking awesome year. I started culinary school in January and god damn this has been bitchin.

    Seriously, its the best choice Ive probly ever made in my life and I haven't regretted it for a second.

    Ill probly be getting drunk with my friends while we do incredibly nerdy things like play Magic or somethin.

    Resolutions? Well, I tend to not make them because I do ever follow through, but lets see, maybe I could go back to the gym, that would be nice. Lets say that, my new years resolution (which has approximately 0.002% chance of being followed) is to go back to the gym!

    2008 was/is one of the most emotional years of my life, and not really in a good way

    overall i will probably remember it as a shitty year

    i dont have any worthwhile new year's plans, which will mostly just be a final shitty cap on the shitty year

    that being said, i am not starving out on the street, so it's not all bad

    oh, resolution is that if i get into the program to teach english in japan, i am going to brush up on my language skills before i leave and try to be functionally literate before i leave. and if i dont get in, resolution is to get out of my current job and move up to LA to try to sell my soul to the hollywood movie machine

    The parts that were good were excellent.

    The sucky parts were awful.
    I think personally I took a huge knockback this year. My confidence and securities have been pretty battered.

    2008 was generally up, because despite losing most of my dogs to death, i think i've grown a lot as a person and stopped relying on a bunch of other people to fix problems for me. my relationship with my girlfriend has gotten a hell of a lot better, i went to pax (which was awesome), and i think i got straight A's this past semester.

    for new years, i'm going to my girlfriend's sister's and staying from the 31st-3rd, and that's going to be awesome because shit, semi-private bed? sign me up.

    2008 was fine. Moved back into my own place so that I can be alone at night while my roommates sleep. My pacing used to wake up my parents. Umm. Don't have much else to say

    For new years eve, plan on finding a place where I can drink under the stars and sleeping there. I'd like to do it on the grass at the end of the airport runway because those lights are so pretty, but cops would probably poop their pants aboot it.
