the same house for a whole year. support at work (which i do have now in my new job). a visit to europe!
What date from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
5th of feb is the only proper date that springs to mind as that was when i started work in derby as a registered nurse, but yeah who remembers dates?
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
surviving working at derby! nah, i dunno. i did a lot more stuff independently this year than previously which i guess i'm proud of.
What was your biggest failure?
i guess i feel a bit of failure because i didn't complete my grad year in it's entirety, but it's all good now and was for the best. but mainly i fail at sending out any xmas cards.
Did you suffer illness or injury?
sore arms from wii boxing.
What was the best thing you bought?
i bought a lot of shit this year! my car is pretty fun. and i didn't actually pay for the kittens but i did fork out a lot for all their kitteny vet care and it's all worth it. also plane tickets.
Whose behaviour merited celebration?
i'm not sure i could celebrate behaviour, so i dunno
Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
my own, any time i drank alcohol
Where did most of your money go?
PLANE TICKETS. at least $1600 just for 2 return trips sydney-broome + other flights + $1600 ticket to london for next year! also a car and a laptop didn't help.
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
THE FACT I'M GOING TO MEET KATIE IN A MONTH! :D and i was pretty excited for the Boab Ball too
What song will always remind you of 2007?
oh heck, too many. i discovered and rediscovered lots of music through people & the internet this year as i had no decent radio reception for most of the year (eg. only local radio). but 'Footloose' would have to be up there.
Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. Happier or sadder?
yeah, probably happier. i can't really remember the end of last year. oh yeah! it was shit! yeah, definitely happier.
ii. Thinner or fatter?

avec les Daft Punks, oui

WEEDS! also, of course, Summer Heights High and Newstopia
Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
i don't really hate anyone
What was the best book you read?
did i read White Teeth this year? i think so, that was good. oh and Don't Tell Mum I Work On The Rigs, She Thinks I'm A Piano Player In A Whorehouse was both hilarious and excellently titled, plus it only took me 5 hours to read. oh, and i think i read 2-3 Bill Bryson books which i love all of because they are also too hilarious
What was your greatest musical discovery?
at the moment i would have to say rediscovering Daft Punk has been amazing, but i found lots of great stuff via audiography like Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens and The Bird & The Bee.
What did you want and get?
What was your favourite film of this year?
again, being isolated for 8 months meant i wasn't into much film but i did get around to seeing Shaun of the Dead which was great. plus i don't really like films.
What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
well i think work gave me my birthday-day off and i did nothing, but the day after i went to an anaesthetics and airway management course in broome then drove back and had an insane party where i ended up covered in flour. and i turned 22. next year i'm 23 which is like proper adult age, gah!
What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
a better work environment would've help and then i wouldn't have left and then i would have more money!
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007?
fashwun? i dunno. "nurse who is too cheap to buy a proper uniform" mostly.
What kept you sane?
living with non-insane people. kittens. music.
Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Guyf-Man de Homem-Christo *sigh*
What political issue stirred you the most?
i guess i am obliged to mention health, but on the whole the 2007 federal elections were a bit spesh. fun to see the liberals go down.
Who did you miss?
Kelly & Ruby, Ramona, Sue, Sue, Telia - people i met in derby
Who was the best new person you met?
well, the above doods + secret bobleys of course who are hilarious
