    2004 - Final year of high-school. Head boy meant making speeches, hanging out with Nesian Mystik etc! Had some amazing times with mates this year. School wasn't too hard. Went to Christchurch for a film course and to Sydney for a holiday. Meet Shelley! Went to the Mt. in January for holiday which was amazing. Continued writing songs, went clubbing, worked a lot!

    2003 - Fun year, but I prefer '04. Worked far too damn much. Had a girlfriend for pretty much the entirety of 2003. School was a lil bit harder. Had some great time wit mates. Took up smoking fulltime.

    2002 - Fifth form. 1st year of NZ's new examination things - NCEA. Went out to parties a lot this year. Started work in December. Had a girlfriend for a quarter of the year. School work was bloody hard. Spent A LOT of time on UKMIX!

    2001 - 4th form. Was heaps of fun - my form class was a bunch of sh*ts. Made lots of new mates this year. Started goin to parties. Discovered many varities of alcohol. I liked 2001. Good music this year also.

    2000 - Awkward 3rd form year. Didn't like it, though there was some good music that year (Eminem, Craig David, D's Child...).

    And now high-school's over. It's nothing like I thought it would be (thanks to watching 90210 Graduation when I was five and living in a country nothing like America!)
    Baaaaad relationship??

    I might as well do my rundown....

    2004 - Became a moderator on here, then got upgraded to global moderator. Enrolled in a tertiary preparation course (which I don't think will get me into university, but we'll wait & see on that one); went & saw both John Mayer & Incubus in concert; went to Brooke Fraser gig; met Muzik back in July; still struggling to figure out what I'm going to do with my life, considering I don't know why the hell I'm doing what I'm doing right now. Will be going away at Xmas & New Year. Felt rather alone again this year, but have managed to sever most communication with high school friends.

    2003 - Year after I finished high school, largely disappointed with not getting into university. Worked for the first 1/2 of the year, left part time job, bummed around on here most of the time, began getting to know some UKMIXers better through the wonderful medium that is MSN. Felt rather alone. Got my braces off (yay!). Made an attempt to discover more music from overseas, rather than wait for it to be released in Oz.

    2002 - Final year of high school, did my HSC, really didn't try hard enough for that. Had a crush on a guy in my year for the entire time, graduated from high school, had my school formal (not a great night), turned 18 (not a big deal), spent most of that year ignoring friendly advice to make moves on crush & thinking that I would get a great mark. Began my first end of year chart.

    2001 - Started senior levels of high school (Year 11), started crushing on guy mentioned above. School camp which was mostly fun, my 17th birthday (which didn't turn out to be so bad after all, had a surprise party), switched group of friends, discovered that some friends were just users & let go of them (for the most part), good year for music, signed up to UKMIX by the end of the year. Got my braces put on. Think I had more fun in that year than the years to come & decided to stop being bitchy towards the guys in my year

    2000 - Year 10 & Year 10 formal (which was better than Year 12), went to Melbourne for a trip & met some ex internet friends. Moved to the house I'm in now, hosted a Japanese student later in the year & into 2001, can't remember much from that year aside from the Sydney Olympics & what I've just written

    Amazing how my life has changed over the past 4 years....I've wondered lately if I had've got into university when I should have, if I would be having the same doubts & same feeling of something's not right/feeling like I'm in a rut/unhappiness that I feel now & whether I'd be as mad to go travelling as I am...just a thought I'm having out aloud, nothing to see here....
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    Hehe... here's a rundown:

    2000 - finished secondary, passed in all O-Levels and made a lot of friends. Excellent year for music, got internet access . The 'Music' album was released! However, a friend of mine passed away - that is a big lowlight. Aside from that, it was an amazing year - 9/10

    2001 - Made further more friends along the way, got my first job, went out a LOT... and I mean it by staying out till 4am or something, discovered UKMIX towards the end of the eyar - also an excellent year for music, and I started my Jennfier Lopez obsession. - 8/10

    2002 - had a girlfriend for 4/5 months... until she just grew fed up and we just split up; failed A-Levels and had to resit them; had some trouble with friends since because of my ex I just abandoned them, plus I got bored and quit work. On the other hand, I entered University and started letting my hair grow. That doesn't give much for the awful year. The hgihlight of the year was the discovery of Shakira. - 6/10

    2003 - Awful year musically! Loads of stuff and coursework at University; started getting over the UKMIX obsession ; got my driving licence after the third attempt and bought my car; I also made a lot of friends but somehow this year I just didn't enjoy it to the fulest - I always thought something was lacking (a g/f?) - 7/10

    2004 - Hmm... positivewise: I got to the final year at University; started driving properly; somehow elarnt to park; took part in the Madonna musical; came out to my friends about my bisexual orientations and they just accepted it; got a decent part-time job; haven't spent much time on mobilephone credit - an awful lot on clothes though - negativewise: a frtiend of mine (colse one) just refuses to speak to me anymore; I grew terribly bored of new music and of the internet; terrible heaps of work to do for my course... so far 7/10 (because of the musical)

    Nothing beats 2000 for me - with the exception of my passed-away friend. (RIP Kathleen 1985-2000 )

    Pre-2000 years are not worth commenting about... especially on the net!

    Okay, I'll give you a few more hints. Darren has a great affinity for this man. He will always love you (even though in every single case the feelings aren't reciprocated) and everytime you see his face you wanna puke up and then pick up the puke just so you have something to cover up his face with!

    'Cept quite a lot funnier...

    *apparently* there's a gangbang society at Oxford University where they have regular... ahem... events. Mind you I said this to my friend (who is at Oxford) and she reckon's it's a myth.

    There's not one at my uni though!

    Once you hit 20-25, time really speeds up, there is no doubt about it...

    From the last 5 years:

    1999:I enjoyed this year.A lot of changes and weird stuff happened,but looking back,it was a fun ride.

    2000:Brilliant.This was my best year since 1996!

    2001:Started well,but the second half was really depressing,in many ways

    2002:A bit hit and miss.It had its ups and downs.Average.

    2003:Up till September,it was awesome.I want to re-live everything about that period From Sept,it got boring and pointless!

    2004:Borrrrrrrrrrrrring!!!!THE worst year in a long time,for me.Just depressing and lousy for most of the year.I need a miracle right now....

    It's funny, now everyone is saying "hasn't 2004 gone quickly".
    Don't explain yourself 'cos talk is cheap,
    There's more important things than hearing you speak.

    It has gone bloody fast! Christmas time already

    I'm bored so i'll try and summarise my life over the past few years in a few paragraphs:

    2004 - Started post-grad studies - Legal Practice Course... oh are you still awake? Started a relationship with one of my best friends which has ended up a bit of a mess.. there goes 7 years of friendship down the pan. Stumbled on UKMIX on day - probably one of the best things I've done this year to tell you the truth - dunno what I used to do every night before I joined these forums

    2003 - Very boring year. Getting a 2:2 in my law degree being the highlight.


    2002 - Quality year on the whole. Lived with 2 of my mates from home in a student flat in Manchester . Plenty of stereotypical student activities going on. Unfortunately my two best mates fell out and as a result I dont speak to one of them anymore.. bit of a bad atmosphere towards the end of the yearl

    2001 - Probably the year that changed my life really. Moved away from Southport and moved into Halls of Residence in Manchester for uni. I became much more broadminded after living with 15 of probably the most diverse people you could put together. Had a great year - went really fast.

    2000 - Last year of college., Came out with ABBB A Levels . End of an era really.

    Might as well resurrect this. Sorry if it seems like the cup is half empty here but things have been a bit rubbish I suppose for the past few years

    1998: Fantastic year, made one really excellent friend who got me into music much more than I was.

    1999: Had a trying school trip in Paris where I felt really isolated but enjoyed Disneyland! Started being a bit more experimental in the way I thought. Nothing else stands out really

    2000: Realised that I was bisexual. Honestly can't remember anything else about 2000

    2001: Asked another guy out, feelings weren't matual. Had the best week of my life in Canada. We got an extension on our house which made it impossible to live in for a few months. My dad was fired, that was a very low point. Started A Levels and really didn't get off on the right foot

    2002: Discovered UKMIX and posted here an awful lot. Made some incredible friends who I'm still really close with now. Couldn't manage to get a job for the summer though which was a bit crap. Had a mess of an interview for Cambridge that really matured me

    2003: Decided to come to Durham. Got the grades I needed on my 18th birthday! Had a fantastic final few months at school, strengthened a lot of my friendships, probably the happiest time of my life. Managed to get a summer job, got on well with the rest of the staff but one of my friends there stabbed me in the back and one the assistant managers who had it in for me from day 1 fired me. My brother came out, I told my brother I was bi - that was fun! Came to uni and despite the falseness of the freshers week, enjoyed myself. Things got worse very quickly and when I went home for a cousins wedding in November I told my sister that I was bi, and she didn't take it well at all. Became incredibly homesick. Came back early for my sister's graduation (and met Bono!)

    2004: Really not wanting to go back to uni, I had a miserable term, a good Easter and an alright final term. Got to work in Belfast for the whole summer in a bank which was fantastic. My mum began a childminding business which made living at home hard. Lived really far out in uni with one of my best friends and really enjoyed my first term. Decided that I really didn't care anymore about Psychology (half of my degree) and eliminated a ton of career choices. Had a great Christmas

    2005 so far: Have really strived to be happy here, and I dunno if I've achieved that. Get to work in Belfast again this summer which is good. Got a lot closer with one of my lecturers. Other than that just work

    I'm really bumming myself out here. Hmmmmm anyway

    2001-Had a good time at my new school with new friends and i had a great birthday party.I got expelled from my new school in march and ended up being without a school.Bullying wasnt that much though it still was.I had a good time on holiday in Majorca and that.Still was a very very bad boy even worse then in 2000.Became a real hooligan causing trouble with everything and everywhere.Just growing up.Went to alot of Theme Parks and fun places that year but i was also very lonely and upset.My love of music grew more and more.My love of games,movies,tv etc also but music was the biggest grower.I hit Puberty at this age yes its true I matured early lol.I wanted to go back to school i was desperate to find one and have friends.I was saved.And found a school.My love of the Simpsons was growing bigger and bigger.



    2002-Hrm slightly better then 2001 things had finally started to get better in my life i had a blast when i was 12.My love of music was growing more.Had a great summer.One several gold medals at major swimming competitons and gala's played alot of footie and went to several comps.My love of the simpsons grew even more.It was one of the best times of my life.I had a great summer in tenerife.And also my dad came back for good and we were father and son again but we did have alot of differences and it really changed with us and it got much much worse over the years.


    2003-I turned 13 i started becoming a teenager obviously lol.Things started to get worse with everything i had a very traumatic thing with my dad which im not going to go into and our relationship has never been the same since then and probally never will.My love of music obviously grew more.I started staying in and hardly ever going out.Occasionally i went to the Cinema to watch the latest movies because i was very very interested in them and obsessed.I bought alot of games,movies,music etc.I got into alot of trouble in school and out.I was severeley depressed.Got suspended from school many times.I was very very sad in 2003.Oh yeah i also played vice city for most of the year.I started to feel that my life was over and i was much much older when i was only 13.I know i am big for my age but surely.The year went extremely fast and i felt that i wasted my whole year and i was gonna waste my whole life.And i started drinking.



    2004-Well what can i say about last year.Last year went by quick also.Its kinda hard to tell if 2003 or 2004 was worse for me.I had a good time with a lot of my mates yeah.But i got expelled from the school even though i didnt want to.I started smoking heavily and taking drugs,hanging out with the wrong crowd causing more trouble etc.My relationship with my dad got worse and he got layed off from work which made it even worse.I was horribly depressed.Suicidal even.My love for music grew alot more.I went to another school i hated it got expelled and i am currently out of school and never felt better.I had alot of relationships with girls.Still a virgin though lol.This year just flew right by very quickly i have had more changes this year then any in my whole life.I started to go on the internet almsost 24/7 and i went out a hell of a lot more.


    2005-A new year,A new start.not much really.went by very quick.I joined UkMix thats good .Had my birthday recently got an ipod.Not much bad has happened this year so i geuss thats kinda good.But still its not really that good.Kinda inbetween but atleast its a change.
