Did 2006 fly past for you?
Well, it’s that time again. Time to reflect back on yet another year. I’m quite shocked at how fast the year has progressed. Mind you, I guess you all hear the same thing being said every single year. I still remember everything I did this same time last year, in minute detail too.
This time last year, I wrote down my New Years Resolutions on this blog. Now looking at those 6 ‘resolutions’ if you could even call them that, I’ve managed to do all but two. I still haven’t worked out how cows make milk (what state of mind was I in when I came up with that?!), and lastly I’ve failed to make any use of me camera. I was really hoping to take scenic shots of areas around London, and Scotland especially but I can’t find the time to get away from work.
I’ve not given much thought to my resolutions for 2007. Is there even any need to I ask? Well here are five of mine.
- Get myself my dream Toyota Celica and stop using public transport
- Ease up on my mad spending sprees
- Consider moving out of London or the Uk
- Make sure my mad cousin Ayesha (sitting with me) passes her uni course. It’s important to me!
- See my family over in San Francisco. I’ve not met hardly any of them.
I’ve spent some time today just reflecting back on everything that has happened in 2006. I’ve had a lovely year for the most part. Work wise things have been great, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve got a solid circle of friends who always keep my spirits high at work and I’ll miss them horribly as I move to a new section at work mid Jan 2007. I’ve no idea how long I’ll remain at work because the lease for my workplace expires towards the end of 2007, and there’s strong rumours that my lab may be moved to Canada, Toronto. I first mentioned this last December when I first heard about it.
On another note, I’ve seen more close friends leave the Uk, I only have about 4-5 friends left residing here now. I’ve seen two friends, close to my heart move away from my life, which saddens me whenever I think about them 🙁 They know who they are, and they’re probably reading right now. If you are, I miss you and I wish you all the best for 2007. As for everyone else reading this, what are your resolutions?
I’m being pestered by Ayesha to take her to London tomorrow for the New Years celebrations however I’m not sure, over the past years they keep clamping down on areas you can celebrate in over there, so its less enjoyable then the past years, also drinks cost a ton of cash. I’m also worried about security given the media events of today (30th Dec).
So that’s all I have to say. I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas, and have a joyous 2007. I know I am I’m looking forward to it
