2007: A look back. And New Year's Resolutions too.
« on: December 31, 2007, 12:10:42 AM »

So, you think you're a 2k7 fan? Ok LongCat, can you handle this?
The flicks, the fashions, the trends, the tunes, the tv, the gatherings, the totally awesome year that gave us these burning questions:

How much madness could could you handle in Sparta?

Blah blah blah, VH1, I get it. Anyway, it's time to list our favorite things from 2007.
Here is my list:

Favorite gathering:
All the one's at Jerry's, just because he's Jerry.

Favorite tv show:
Death Note

Favorite 2k7 flick:
300

Favorite 70s flick:
The Poseidon Adventure

I'll post more later. Heres to the new year, everybody! :D

My 2008 New Year's Resolutions:

1. Get Laid.
2. Stop using God's name "in vain" and instead use either Zeus, or nothing at all with the damn it part. A few years ago I did pretty good at this one, until June. Darn.
3. Exercise a little bit.
4. Win the 911 Chicken Challenge
5. Go to EVO World.

I forgot to post my look back. lol 

My year...sucked. T_T  I missed Fanime because of some senseless drama.  I had my heart broken twice and got a speeding ticket for the first time in my life.  My mom also left us and now we are buried in debt.  lol  Maybe this year will be better.

2k7 Faves/memoirs:

Fanime, I made new friends.

Learning to craft leather.

The car blowing up AT fanime.

whilest xmas shopping in Sacremento, I reconzied two people from Fanime. ;>.>
One recognized me as 'The girl who's car was on fire'.

worst:
Loosing friends (un fanime related) and loosing family ties.


New Years Res:

Go to Fanime. Even though I will most likely not have a car. *still*

Finish up the last of my craft projects so I can start selling.

Get rid of/consign what I don't use anymore. (Books, anime, costumes, clothes, dvds, games, etc)

Have a great vacation in Sweden.

2007...Hmmm, it wasn't a bad year I say...but then again I make things as good as I want them to be :D

Im going by months...if I remember them actually

-Jan: started off great with Jerry, Karisma, Karren and myself.  Continued with birthday at the Pier for Karisma and going to her place for superbowl.  Ladies and boys I only go to superbowl parties if I have an interest in a girl there or there is good food.  I find football utterly boring and useless to watch.  On the other hand I will play it and tackle you down :D

-feb: Valentines was fun...I think...I'm sorry I forgot what we did...in all I forgot what happened february.  Oh yea clam chowder event...yea

-march: I turned 21 woot...again don't remember, and no I didn't get plastered on my birthday.  Only idiots use that as an excuse.  Just because I can do it now doesn't mean I have to.  Plus I had an exam the next day.

-April- brother's bday.  thats all I got.

-may: fanime, first time being staff, rooming with loads of people...this time around I will make it better rooming.  and I finished another semester of school :D

-June:  Yay summer...wait I worked the whole time.  Did end up taking a trip up to washington, that was fun

-July: Starting with Washington, that was fun.  Don't remember what else.

-Aug: went on a cruise that was super special awesome.  Want to go again to another one :D.  went back to school

-September: did anything happen then?

-October: Nothing special, SAW 4 was kew.  About it.

-November: Turkey day is always awesome.  Started playing FFXI...bad idea since its almost finals time

-December: work, finals, passed all my classes, mexico was fun as you may see in the other new years thread.

Favorite movie: Dont know...lots that I liked
Favorite new song: Alguien Soy Yo-Enrique Iglesias...what is an awesome song
Favorite restaurant: Sushi Factory...mmm sushi
and other favorites I cant think off at the moment

Yes the year had some drama but I dealt with it like I always do and so it didn't bug me much

Resolutions:
-lose weight
-meet new people
-join a kick boxing ring or the boxing club at school
-swim more
-work on cosplays
-become a better woodsman...hehe
-save monies to get me a car...donations are very much welcomed :D
-plan more fun trips with friends...got to plan one soon
