2008 Meme

I did this meme for the first time last year.  It's supposed to be an annual thing so here I go again.  

Here I Go Again - Whitesnake</div>


1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?

I went to the Magic Castle.  Maybe not the most exciting thing ever but I had a good time.  Oh- and I played the lotto.  I didn't win.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Again, I've forgotten if I made a resolution.  If I did, it's a safe bet that I probably didn't keep it.  I won't be making any this year.

Nope.  This year has been barren.

A couple of people that I used to be close to have passed away this year.

An awesome job.

There are a few dates I'll remember, most of them having to do with my relationships.  And my birthday rocked.

Getting myself back on my feet again, with a decent job and an apartment.
