Hows your 2011 been?

Post by jimee » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:44 am

Nearly at the end of 2011, hows yours been? Highs? Lows?

For me,

Highs

Getting new job - start in 2 weeks!
Getting new car
Ibiza - been going on and off for 12 years, and this was definitely the best, the music and clubs - its like its been given a new burst of life
Turkey - amazing chilled out holiday
Clubbing - havent gone mad this year so much outside of Ibiza, did a raindance earlier in the year, apart from that its been manily house/techno events I been to

Lows

Nothing I can really think of, its been all good!

Overall pretty good. I left my job of 4 years, and have had 2 different jobs this year. Settling in at the 'new' one now. Doing the 3 Fantazia EPs and Jedi EP have been a highlight, as has buying records for the first time in about 5 years! Also had a great holiday in Barbados.

The only slight low was getting made redundant in August, but I'd only been there 3 months and got a decent payout and had no trouble finding another job. Oh, and I'm turning 30 next week so I guess that's not so good :lol:

So overall, a good year!

Can't grumble about 2011 to be honest. Would seem that there are people a lot worse of than me who post here. So my "complaints" about anything in 2011 are very miniscule compared to the bollocks they have gone through.

Best part of 2011 was the 4 weeks back in England, all paid for by work.... dam that country is fucking expensive & I've now racked up a shite load of virgin air miles :)

Worst part was my friend got told she is ill & if the operation she had last week was not successful, chances are she would not be around much longer.

2011 has been a bit of a strange year for me, not a massive amount happened, on the up side got booked to play at a festival in Spain this summer which was pretty mad, on the down side I bought a scooter to pootle around on doing my work, but some little scum bags came along in the middle of the night tried and failed to nick my CBR but managed to bend up the steering in the process, and then took my scooter, thieving little bastards, then I managed to loose my freshly contracted htc sensation which had no insurance, so that was a bit of a pain in the arse, but those thing are only material so it's not the end of the world. Apart from that 2011 has been a bit average..

Spent way too much of it misbehaving. At 39 I should know better.
It's been a fun year, but not as productive as I had hoped, although I think I feel that way each year.

Pretty fucking desperate to be honest one of the worst years ive had in a long time, my old dear was close to death and i got seriously depressed over this (understandable i suppose) luckily she was admitted to hospital just in time, i couldn't get a job either no matter how many applications i sent off which was a right bastard, thankfully my old dear has all but made a full recovery and im only recently back working only temp and not great pay but anything is better than the fucking dole queue and if i do well i might be kept on im just glad to have some dignity back, some decent weekends away and im delighted at my lad Sean he is turning into a very bright smashing lad, but anyway im really looking forward to xmas now but 2011 was not good and roll on NYE and 2012.
