I know we are nearly a whole month in 2010 but as it is my 50th review i thought i'd go back and look at the thins that happened in 2009. Heres my summary, hope you dont get bored.
--What did you do in 2009 that you have not done before--
I got my own car. After 4years of driving my mums, i finally invested into the motoring industry to a lovely new car. O and i signed up to this great website/ community called DooYoo, you must check it out!
--Did anyone close to you give birth?--
Come to think of it yes. Two of my friend from my old work place gave birth to beautiful girls. Brang them down to the office, they were sooooo quite. Apart from that no but should be expecting one or two this year.
--Did anyone close to you die?--
Wouldnt class as close but close enough yes. my mates dad who was such a cool loving guy had dies after a long battle with an illness. Just couldnt believe it when i heard. Hopefully it wont happen this year, please.
--What countries did you visit?--
Well I went to north Cyprus for 2 weeks to catch up with the odd family member and some friends who had settled down there. My family are turkish cypriot so naturally we go there now and again to show our faces.
Then soon after that i took my lovely loving girlfriend to Amsterdam for a few days to celebrate 3years together. Wonderful place amsterdam and one place you have to go to. Bikes everywhere not t mention the other two things its famous for. And yes we did both! Recommend highly.
Then for a day we drove to Disneyland, which was great. hopped on the ferry from dover, then drove from calais to paris and back again the same night. Would do it again but with another driver and not just me driving.
--What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?--
You've probabl read this a million times but more money would be nice. Just so i can get to save up properly and go on a really nice holiday with my girl and so i can maintain her loool.
--What days will you remember from 2009?--
as always 21st June. The day my girlfriend and i got together (3 years previous) and also July 16th my birthday. Has a lovely BBQ with all me mates, hadnt done that in a while so it was really nice.
--Did you suffer illness or injury?--
Thankfully no, nothing to serious. Just to odd cold but nothing i cant handle.
--Whose behaviour has merited celebration?--
None to think of really. I guess everon was there usual good self but i would say me. I finally got out of my crappy job and got a new one (pats on the back*).
--Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?--
Not really any of those but one made me unhappy with the way she acted after she had broken up from a long term relationship. sad really.
--Where did most your money go?--
My car, insurance, food, petrol (getting ridiculous now!) and not suprisingly my girl. Oh and the usuall bills to.
--What did you really get excited about?--
My new job, couldnt wait to start fresh and also the trip to amsterdam.
--What song(s) will you remember from 2009?--
Oh God theres too many to think of (damn there really is). ermmmmmmm................ theres gotta be one.......... i would have to say....Kid Cudi - Day and Nite. The tune was real cool and also the music video was recorded at my local store!! My claim to fame!!
Oh and Jay-Z tunes of Run This Town and New York. Big tunes!!
--Compared to this time last year, are you happier, fitter or more productive?--
I would have to say i'm happier then last year thanks to the new job bring stability to my life. fitness wise i'll have to say slightly better but must start going to the gym either for longer sessions or more days. And about the same with productivity.
--What do you wish you had done more of?--
Most probably trying to keep in contact with my college friends and uni friends. Once we all got jobs we seemed to drift off and only spoke via email or the odd text. Will try to see them more often now.
--What do you wish you had done less of?--
--What was your favourite Tv programme?--
Had to be Heroes, then it finished and so started watching how i met your mother. LEGEND, wait for it, hope you like milk because its DARY (if you've seen it you'll know what i mean). Family guy too as always.
--Do you hate anyone now that you didnt last year?
Not hate but dont like anymore, showed her real colours not just to me but most of her friends.
--What been the best book of 2009?--
Well i've read all the Twilight books, read some Dan Brown but i'd have to say the Muhammad Ali autobiography was amazing. To go through that mans life through his boxing career and see the types of people he met was amazing. Would recommend a read if your into that sort of stuff.
--What is your favourite film of the year?--
Hmmmmm tought one but i would probably say the one that comes to mind right now is Taken, although on the lighter side i would say UP. Truly good movie and funny too.
--What did you do on your birthday and how old were you?--
I hit 23 unfortunately and invited all my close friends to a BBQ and drinks at my mums house. good thing she werent home!
--Who was the best person you met?--
The best person i met was three years ago and she always is! My baby (girlfriend that is).
--Tell us a valuable lesson you learnt in 2009--
Be true to yourself and to those who you care for. Work hard and work within your means.
Summary: 2010 is my year! Watch me go!!!
