Happy New Year!
 
So begins the countdown to '09!

How was 2008 for you?

Do you have any new year resolutions you intend to ignore just like all the other years? (who follows those things anyway?)

08 was pretty normal for me... unless i cant remember things that happened... which is probably the case. (im a little spaced at this moment for no particular reason)

[edit]

What did you do during when the clock struck 12pm? Out with friends? Raving? Unconscious?

2008 was an okay year...way to much snow for it to be great.

Revan 411 12-31-2008 04:17 AM

2008 was actually a very good year for me. I had a ton of fun doing lots of stuff, and I got to try new things as well and eating new stuff too.

So, overall, I'd say 2008 was a pretty good year.

Ztalker 12-31-2008 05:13 AM

Quit good. Nothing seriously cool/sad happened though. Except for the outrageous parties I went too/helped organise. Oh, sweet hangover.

JesusIsGonnaOwnSatan 12-31-2008 06:12 AM

3.....2......1...... ITS 2009!!

*blows party whistle thing* :bday2:

Your way ahead of us :lol:

Still 11hrs to go... tumtumtum... bored of the waiting :p

2008 wasn't bad I suppose, nothing to bad happened.
Just lost our oldest dog a few weeks ago, but he was old and a bit sick, so it wasn't really unexpected.

That's like the only sad thing I can think of for 2008.
Not bad actually ^_^

adamqd 12-31-2008 07:03 AM

best year ever was 1985, this year was pretty run of the mill, let's hope 09 pulls something out of the bag :)

Sabretooth 12-31-2008 07:17 AM

Aye, this year wasn't too special for me. I learnt something, changed somethings and liked stuff in general, but I still don't think it went all that well. Perhaps next year will be better. I guess the number one thing I can think of this year would be the terrorist attacks. :( RIP Hemant Karkare.

True_Avery 12-31-2008 08:49 AM

Oh hey, New Years

I completely forgot about it

Miltiades 12-31-2008 09:49 AM

2008 was an okay year. Not a lot of eventful things happened in my personal life that's worth mentioning. Much more interesting were on global level, but there's something of that every year. Special mention to Belgium's three federal governments in 2008 and never seen behavior by ministers in Belgian history. Congrats for making us look like fools.

Other than that, let's hope 2009 brings more solutions than problems, and stabilizes things a bit. What better way to start than with a new American President.

New Year's still about 8 hours away here. I will do my duty and party good. Have a good day, evening, night and morning everyone. :)

Me too. :p

2008 was a decent year, not great, but alright. My last impression of this year will be being sick/doing school projects. :(

mimartin 12-31-2008 10:19 AM

I had a pretty good year professionally, but I had to go vote bad in the poll. Not that my personal life was bad, but I had some close family members and friends pass away and/or suffer health wise this year.

I haven’t decided what I’m doing tonight. I have tickets to a downtown Houston event, but I’m not in much of a celebration mood. Never been a fan of New Years parties. There is always great anticipation, but they never live up to the hype. That and, every year a different couple in my group of friends ends up getting into a massive fight. Not that I mind, but now they are all onto my methods of ditching a fighting couple.

jrrtoken 12-31-2008 10:20 AM

This year was alright, nothing too special. Actually, it was rather uneventful and almost boring. Here's hoping that '09 will be more entertaining. :)

Yar-El 12-31-2008 10:41 AM

I'm still 13.5 hours away from midnight. :) I will let you know in 13.5 hours. :lol:

CommanderQ 12-31-2008 11:11 AM

I thought this year was AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, New Year for me probably won't happen for another 16 hours here. Like Yar-El said, I will inform you then. But it doesn't mean I can't celebrate now!!!!!

*cracks open bottle of Champagne and Vodka*

LordOfTheFish 12-31-2008 11:30 AM

Meh, I've lived better...

Xarwarz 12-31-2008 01:14 PM

ah it was soso 09 is ma time

TriggerGod 12-31-2008 01:27 PM

2008 wasn't really an eventful year for me. I got older, and got a bunch of good games out of christmas. Other then me telling all the republicans/anti-obamas that Obama was going to win on Election Day, nothing happened really exciting. But man were they pissed the next day :D

This year, a bunch of friends are going to cram into our house (really, its just 3 extra people.) and have a new years party. I'm going to be hiding in my basement, playing my games... until the food and drinks arrive. Thats when my New Years party starts.

Sabretooth 12-31-2008 01:41 PM

Woot, 10 minutes into 2009!

I can feel the two-thousand-nine-ness all over me!

Is it a tingly feeling?

About 1 PM here.. :(

CommanderQ 12-31-2008 01:48 PM

Ohhh!!! Or is it a strange hyper-nervous feeling?? :D You don't want to know the time here, I've gotta long ways to go....:(

The Doctor 12-31-2008 02:21 PM

2008 was sure as **** better than 2007 - which I have dubbed as 'the Year of Hell'. 2009 is looking to be even better.

Rev7 12-31-2008 02:57 PM

12 hours 3 minutes to go for me.

My year was great. Every year is great because I get to live life.

GeneralPloKoon 12-31-2008 03:35 PM

My year was alot better than 2007!

Jae Onasi 12-31-2008 04:47 PM

Let's see....
Not one but two car accidents, neither of which were our fault, of course both were caused by uninsured drivers.
Waiting forever for the insurance company to get around to getting some kind of miniscule payment to us for the first car accident (no damage on the second, happily)
My favorite cat dying
My sister getting rushed by ambulance to the hospital because she got the food poisoning that was going around the US last summer
Point Man getting called up to active duty again
Having to have surgery and stay overnight in the hospital (and yes, medical people really suck at being patients)
A friend nearly dying
Point Man's wallet getting stolen, which had a few hundred dollars in it that we were intending to send to a friend so he didn't get evicted

I'm sure there are people who have gone through far worse, but 2008 just generally sucked.

igyman 12-31-2008 06:48 PM

Well, the countdown to 2009 ends (at least over here). Happy New Year everyone!!

As for 2008, it was OK. Some good things happened, some bad things too. Hopefully '09 will be a lot better.

Fredi 12-31-2008 06:50 PM

2008 was great for me, not the best year but was a very good year for me :D ... Still waiting for 2009!!! 4 more hours for me!!!

Astor 12-31-2008 07:03 PM

Happy 2009 from the UK!

Hallucination 12-31-2008 07:32 PM

I still have another 8 hours to go, so I'll be sure to maek moar poast after I run topless in the snow at the stroke of midnight.

Marius Fett 12-31-2008 07:34 PM

00:34 for me now.

Happy New Year everyone. :)

Be completely honest Jae - almost all of this stuff happened in like 1-2 months, so it was even worse than you're leading us to believe :(

Anyway, 2008 was a great year for me, but I'm placing my bets on 2010.

_EW_

tk102 12-31-2008 07:49 PM

Global economic downturn 2nd only to the Great Depression. 2008 sucked, history will record this fact.

Happy 2009!

LordOfTheFish 12-31-2008 07:53 PM

I'm on eastern standard time, still 4 hours left.

Ctrl Alt Del 12-31-2008 07:58 PM

2008 was great. I managed to finally end high school and I'm hoping to get into a nice college next year. The second semester would be even better, as a plan on taking a year - or half of it - off. Maybe a trip to England to visit the part of my family that lives there, but most likely starting on a new job.

I also turned 18 this year. Sure feels nice to finally be legal, the resposability that comes with it doesn't weight too much yet. Besides, I get to drink and drive legally now.

If I had to define this year on one word, it would be 'friendship'. I've made a good deal of new friends and became closer to a lot of old faces. Thanks to the many parties this year harbored, undoubtely.

Thinking about it now, this year passed way too fast.... I digress, anyway, got a beach and fireworks just outside, but I had to write this down for people on LF, anyway. Officially one hour for 2009, see you all next year!

Commander Obi-Wan 12-31-2008 09:04 PM

I had a great year I'd say.

I went to Europe, turned 18, went to my first (and second, third, and fourth) concert(s), meet some very special people, just to name a few things.

Hopefully, '09 will be even better.

Rabish Bini 12-31-2008 10:50 PM

It was okay, Happy New Year everyone

2012 will be the best year :D

Fredi 12-31-2008 11:17 PM

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!!!

2008 was ok, I would have to say the best part for me would be the birth of my son.
