    RL: Working.

    D2: Maybe later depending on how tired I am.

    2008: Hope i get more settled in work. Finally finish unpacking. Get the new house into a 'flow'.

    Best wishes, guys and gals. :thumbsup:

    Yay, an official daily.

    RL: Played cards for two freaking years. T.T. Randomly checked time EXACTLY at 12:00 AM. Scary.

    D2: Nah.

    2007: College sucks. There was not a single day when I told myself that I would rather be in college than back in high school. Other than that, I got a new Camry SE, and finished 1st in all three of my fantasy leagues. I failed at my one and only resolution. A friend I lost some 4 years ago... It's still all wrong.

    2008: More college... Resolutions? Improve upon my currently two-year old level artistic [in]ability. Write a romance. Be nicer to the world and all those fortunate enough to live in it. Finally, for the 5th year now, I resolve to fix things with [insert random name here]. I know I won't, but whatever. I can dream.

    RL: Get my life back in order. Finish the divorce, get custody of my son, get a good woman in my life, start a new job, etc.

    D2: help a buddy reach lvl 99 this year. He's lvl 90 right now but plays strange. It took him 18 months to get this far.

    RL: skiing - in ~5 hours (I really should be asleep right now)
    D2: not likely

    07: tequila + professional freedom + personal happiness = good year.
    08: same thing, only different

    Resolution: learn to be a mediocre guitar player. Mediocrity would be a big improvement over my current status. :grin:

    RL: Just woke up. Recovering from midnight. Might meet some friends later today for lunch.

    D2: No. I dont think I can take too much staring at a monitor.

    2007: Painfully uneventful year. Wake up, study, eat, play, sleep. Repeat for what feels like 365 times. Not that many holidays or vacations either since I spent them working for much needed cash.

    2008: 6 months of school left till I graduate. After that I'll take some time off from everything and just loiter around for a while. Maybe I should pick up a musical hobby.

    RL: Relaxing, taking a day off with my gf just doing nothing.
    D2: no, but I might start again some time in 08 :smiley: Just might...

    2007: My best year yet. Found the love of my life, and was travelling a lot. Went skiing to Austria, a trip to London, 14 days in Greece, 10 days in Florida and 5 months in Oman. I hope 08 will be as travelling rich as 07.

    2008: Finishing school in exactly a year from now, then I can call myself a civil engineer.

    ROFL:laugh: Best post so far :wink3:

    RL: Been at home, making some phone calls, my parents came round for a short visit. Rest of the time D2.

    D2: Started my Ladder untwinked MF tourney Paladin and found already 2 grailers *yay* - Hsaru's Shield and Death's Sash :)

    2007: Had its ups and its downs - my GF split up with me after almost 7 years early that year, on the other hand I experienced some nice times with some of my friends. With another former very good friend of mine I am now on very bad terms. Uni is going well so far. Hadn't time to improve my Czech. Moved out of my parent's house and got my own flat. All in all I'd tend to say it was rather a bad year because of the GF thing...oh well, life goes on - living is not that bad after all :grin:

    2008: Will be entering my final year as a medical student in August, which means I'll be working at the hospital all day. Have to finally write an application to Prague and to Edinburgh, where I want to spend 4 months of my final year each. Have to make up my mind if I want to do another dissertation about literature after my final year as a medical student - guess if I don't do it then, I'll never again lateron do it...

    RL: Helped finish off some champagne after the ball dropped, but I was dead tired and fell asleep much too early. Today I struggle to sleep enough before working graveyard shift tonight.

    D2: Not today, but the new ladder has begun, and I have my pure claw Assy at A2Hell, so there's plenty to look forward to.

    2007: What a ride! My cushy job with the USPS went from contractual hire to 360-day hire (yay) but changed my job description in the process and turned my job into part time (boo). Made money (yay). Never found the cheap Wrangler I wanted (boo). Department at the USPS closed (boo). Moved from cold but familiar Maine to soon-to-be-sweltering but much more accessible Austin, Texas (mostly yay). The trip and relocation was hella expensive and I became extremely broke (boo). Visited my sister in Los Angeles for the first time in four years (yay). Found a new job (yay). No girlfriends, broken bones, or deaths. But I did buy a projector (much yay).

    2008: Financially, things can only go up since I have $30 to my name. I'm in a new place, but I have some good people around me and I'm beginning to make my own friends. I can eat at a different Mexican place every day... no more Taco Bell, if I want! I'd like to meet a girl, but that's always on the back burner. Resolutions include being in better touch with those I love (helps now that I'm 2,300 miles from them, surprisingly), being less reserved and more adventurous, and trying to be less unobtrusive. No more being the meek, self-conscious Mainer... now it's time to be a loud-mouthed, garrishly dressed, self-declaring Texan!! See y'all in the new year!!

    Edinburgh is a very fun place for a student, possibly the only place in Scotland that is ^^

    Edinburgh is awesome. After 4 years here, I have to say it's the best city i've ever been in.

    Shame it'll all be over soon :(

    Someone is ending Edinburgh? That's a shame. I'd like to have seen the castle.

    RL - Went to see the ball drop in times square last night. There were so many people it was insane. Me and my gf were there from 6:30 standing 12 blocks away. Definatly better to see it at home in the warmth with some beers on couch.

    D2 - Got a Wii so not much d2 lately. Maybe I'll play some next week.

    Who knew the city charter had an expiration date? :grin:

    RL: Get remarried, go on mission with church group to the Dominican Republic to build houses for those without. Try to live a more Christ-like life (helping those around me.)

    DII: Finally get that blasted SoJ that other people keep insisting exists, but of which I've seen no evidence.

    Best new year wishes to a fantastic community!

    :shocked:

    You have time for med school and computer games??? That is truly an impressive feat. gg.

    RL: a bit of New Years Day shopping. Got some nice bargains, IMHO.

    D2: Pit Runs/Tunnel Runs with my Meteorber. Found a few grialies, even.

    2007: Kind of a rough year for the Urk Man. Lost a friend to suicide in May. :cry: Finally found a job, the benefits are o.k. but the pay is kinda low and the job sucks. Had to move in July -- not only was that a royal pain in the arse, but it puts me farther from school. Outrageous gas prices + bad mpg's ftl. But on the bright side, I did have a few positives. Returned to school to persue the 'career change.' Did quite well too, thank you. 3 A 1 B spring semester, 2 A 1 B fall semester. Finally got around to seeing all 3 LotR movies, I enjoyed them. Also found a Ber in summer mfo. :grin:

    2008: Ugh. School will be quite tough. Organic Chemistry Lecture/Lab and Human Anatomy in Spring semester, Biochemistry lecture and Trigonometry in Fall semester. Probably Biology of Organisms in the summer, if its offered. Hopefully I'll still have some time for D2 on the weekends, during the week I certainly wont.

    Have a good 2008 everyone.

    RL: I drank a couple beers last night with dinner and went to bed by 10:00 P.M. No need to watch the ball drop or any of that nonsense, I've seen it plenty of times before.

    D2: Maybe, all I ever do anymore the few times I've played lately is do Pit runs. :laugh: Damned eth Scourge continues to elude me. :undecided:

    Good to hear that :) Now I only have to brace myself up for writing the application...:rolleyes:

    Well, you'd probably think differently if you knew German med school :wink3:
    After the first 2 years it's quite easy going compared to other countries IMO.

    Sorry to hear about your friend :undecided:
    Hope next year will show its brighter sides to you :sunny:
    btw, what career change? Looks almost like med school, too - well, except for trigonometry, that is ;-)
