ah what a decade its been
its been shit most of it, but its had some good points too. hell, some of the people i've met in the past ten years have become the best friends i could ever wish for. Luke, Mary, Endie, Benji, Ben, Mezz, Ciaran, Sean, the twins... they're all so much to me now.
its strange though, how things change over ten years. i realised last night that there has only really been one person who's really been there through it all. rowans been there kind of but not in the same level, so my shout out of the decade goes to him and one other, the one other person who's been with me for years and i love unconditionally... to
for being the two people who really kept me going through the most of the last ten years, and for being the people i turn to against all else. thank you so much.
so heres a question for you, what will the last ten years be known for? what movies and music will really survive the trial of ages. what books and large events will go down in history?
i think, at least for me, the only good band i can see surviving is snow patrol. for books its the daVinci code, twilight (whether i like it or not), the harry potters. they're going to be the huge books of the decade, the ones which are really rememered. the dark knight will obviously be huge forever, and i think maybe avatar too cause it was supposed to have been epic even though i havent seen it yet. the lord of the rings movies will survive too.
politically its going to be obama, the economic crash and 9/11 will be remembered most out of everything. that and iraq, because thats been a huge battlefield. and of course the death of michael jackson will go down in history too.
but i think, sad as it might be, that the thing we're going to be remmebered for most is reality tv. we were the generation which had big brother, x-factor, american idol. i might hate them but the truth is they're going to be whats remembered... they're going to be the ones we know for years to come. what a bad thing to come out of my teenage decade
its been a crazy year, really has. hell, the end of last year i was single, unhappy, back at mums. then i moved back to the city, then back to mums, then into this place. i was a state most of the year, was in and out of the asylum, but towards the end it all came good again. just the last two months, while some of it was shit more of it was good. i discovered paul street this year, and even though its a shithole and i dislike most of the people, for the first time in my life i have many friends, i have people who i can actually text when i need to talk and they'll come over or i can nip into town and see them. i have jason and sean and ciaran and mezz, and they're all i really need. didnt think at the beginning of the year i'd be so happy really, but i am. theres stresses, money issues, stress from all fronts, but in my heart i think i am happy. last night i went out and spoke to dad, just standing on the green and looking out. and i said goodbye, and i know i've done this a million and one times, but this time i said goodbye it really felt like goodbye. cause its a new decade, and its been over two years, and its time to face the future head on. luke said something on facebook today what meant something to me. he said that theres no real reason to make a big fuss about the new year, why not make the changes now. and i think i've already started that this past two days. i'm just ready to face it you know, and i'm ready to have a new start.
my new years resolutions is to get my financial situation sorted, to go back to school, and to be happy.
so my question today, two of them this time. what do you think will be remembered from the past ten years? and what are your new years resolutions.
happy new year everyone
heres to 2010
