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?



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

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

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.

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

Your way ahead of us

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

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 ^_^

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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!!!!!

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

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.

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.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

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.

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.

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!

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.
