Reflections of 2009

Post by Rebellious Backbencher on Mon Dec 07, 2009 8:48 pm

You might say it's a bit premature, but I'm used to hearing that. 2009 be drawing to a close, and in order to record what important stuff happened this year (I'm shit at linking events with dates), I'mma invite you all to put down the best and worst things that happened to you this year. You might find, as I did, that it's very therapeutic, and it'll be pretty interesting to compare. Hit me!


Best moments I had this year:

Having a "big chat" with some really good friends at New Years

Watching Obama's inauguration with a ridiculously big grin

The power stiffy being made Deputy Head Boy gave me

Skinnydipping in Lochwinnoch

The Hangover

Getting a badge with my name on it at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, like a real journalist

Getting my two appeals to bring my total haul for Highers to a very respectable tally

Getting shitfaced in a park

Discovering that the Oblivion at Alton Towers can still scare the shit out of me

Singing Who's Got a Match? with an attractive redheaded stranger at Biffy

Discovering Gavin and Stacey

Driving with my brother

Purchasing my T in the Park 2010 ticket


And the crap stuff:

Skins series 3

Being more homesick than I'd like to admit at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, and comparing that to what it'll be like if I move away to go to Uni

Having someone cancel on me one time too many

Losing an entire day to vomiting and wanting to die, following getting shitfaced in a park

Being punched around the face and head several times and, worse, having to pretend to my Mum I hadn't been punched around the face and head several times ten minutes later

Not dressing up or going anywhere for Hallowe'en

Considering dropping Advanced Higher English out of sheer apathy - I don't like what it says about me

This is such a good idea for a thread. And Paul, i hear you about the bad things, but say what you want you've had a pretty fucking good year. Even the bad points, you have had some experiences, and 2009 should be one you remember, even if next year has more things in the "good" column. And trust me, being at uni is nt like going away for a weekend. I went to a thing for a week at school annd was homesick as hell, but uni keeps you so busy, its hard to be. Ultimately, have you always thought about leaving home for uni? Is it that thing you really want to be brave enough to do, but are a bit scared? If it is, do it. Its one of the only opportunities you will get to live like this, and you should at least try to embrace it. If not, try it and drop out, and become another statistic to hit labour with.

Whatever dude, your year sounds like a pretty perfect year int he life of a teenager. Be happy.

Il make my list tomor when im skiving doing my essay.

Ly babes, xx

Right, great thread. Ehm I will put down a few things I can think of off the top of my head, and add to it later at some stage.

The good stuff:

Inter-railing with some great mates from secondary school

Getting back together with my girlfriend

Training and improving my skills in boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Passion Pit and the rest of the wide variety of new music I experienced this year

Getting a job in GAME

Meeting Don fuckin' Cheadle

The shitty stuff:

Breaking up with my girlfriend

Getting extremely drunk and throwing a bottle through the window of a BMW in Berlin



That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure I'll add some stuff to this list though.

Good stuff:
Doing nothing in college except generally having a good time with good peeps
Finishing college
Getting a kick ass job in an investment bank
Getting a decent regular wage and able to afford as much weed, comics, videogames and blu rays as I want really
Becoming an uncle again
Getting a fucking lovely apartment in a gated cul-de-sac just off Beckenham highstreet, seriously, I'll have to post pics of how fucking lovely it is

Bad stuff:
Trying to find Quaglinos near the Ritz hotel, a mere 5-10 minutes from where I work, and get lost in the pissing rain in sub zero temperatures for 90 minutes
Being pretty ill still as I write this message because of it

Yup, can't really complain too much about my life

Good stuff

Getting together with my girlfriend
Finishing college
Attending my film course and absolutely loving it
Directing my own film with a small budget and professional equipment
Drinking whisky in the park at 13PM and discussing why people make films
Late night existential debates with new good friends
Not missing my home town at all

Having my own room in the dorm - not having to share is bliss
Getting my new iMac

And watching shitloads of other great films.

Bad stuff

The Russ partying - was bored through most of it.
Getting a sub par grade on my final Norwegian exam
The melancholic feeling I get every time I'm home and the sympathy I feel for my mother now alone with my bratty sister.
The envy of some of my peers for having a budget for my film

Dangly - I'm completely in agreement with you, my year has been good - it's the only year I've spent as a teenager in which I couldn't put down "crippling inferiority complex over the cool shit my peers are doing and how much I feel I'm missing out on" as a negative, and that's probably the most important change that's happened to me in the last decade. Also, what you said about Uni genuinely reassured me.
Major - Even though I've never experience anything like it, reading the third item on your "bad stuff" list really affected me. It said so much, good and bad, about where you are right now.
Dingo - I know all about what you put down, having been there for almost every one of them at some point. Apart from Airsoft - what's that?

Airsoft is like paintballing but it uses BBs and is apparently more tactical. Me and a bunch of mates went there for the first time and there were loads of guys dressed in heavy army, combat gear and looked like they would all kill us. They were all really nice guys though and the day was great fun Smile
