Did you enjoy it? Did any spectacular things happen? Meet anybody new? Lost a loved one, be it a close pet, human, tree, etc? Are you prepared for 2008? I hope y'all had a good year and as well as a great 2008.. I will miss '07... The only reason I will miss 2007 is because I was accepted to go to a school that is way more friendlier towards gay kids, the non-conformist, non-cookie-cutter kids. I may not get to go back after the upcoming semester because of geometry and one ginormous poor choice I made..But I'm fixing it, and I hopefully get to stay for the 08-09 school year. And I met someone! The only 2 great things this year, other than that, it was depression throughout the year.

My 2007 sucked (as usual). Only good thing was that I got a new car in July.

Happy 2008 to all a-nutters!

It sucked. It's difficult to explain why, but a certain recent sad anniversary and the constant instability at home and at work have made it suck more than ever.

All the doom and gloom 2007 brought for everyone.....

My 2007 was pretty much same old same old, nothing too special happened. Bring on 2008, one step closer to leaving school and home!!!

Hmmm...apologies for following the trend, but 2007 was one of the worst on record for me!

Let's hope that 2008 is better...as they say, the only way is up!

Happy 2008 one and all!

To start with 2007 was quite bad, as I was ill and laid up for a month which really frustrated me as I hate sitting around and doing nothing. It got better though and turned out to be a good year. Hopefully 2008 will be even better  bigthumbsup

2007 started out as a real bummer.

1/11: My father passed. Dad was a career aviator. 4 yrs as a radio man on the A-3D (USN 1956-1960), and 25yrs as a Huey/Cobra driver for the Army National Guard.

3/1: My wife's grandmother passed. She was great. I never met my grandparents as they passed before my time, but she was my 'grandmother' too. I held her hand until the end.

The best part was on 9/10 when my daughter, Mackenzie, was born. Mac is our first child and we are fortunate that she is healthy here with us...

In the 5 years that I have spent living in this dreaded state of Arizona, 2007 has been one of the better years (the worst being 2005!!). First, I graduated from my A&P school and now I am finally meeting my challenges that I have set like 10 years ago. Better late than never. 2008 and beyond will definately be the best years because I will be living near DEN. I am very excited for this new adventure and very fortunate too! I deserve this!  wave

It totally totally sucked, if any of you remember my thread in Jan about my granddad facing certain death (he survived, improbably and is still here). My mum then went on to get cancer and came within a week of dying, following that she needed 2 months of radiotherapy in London, I broke my toe before my exams and various other elderly relatives died.
Can't wait for 2008!

My 2007?

Has been very interesting. To be honest

It started off bringing it in on MSN and a.net chat [when it worked  duck ]. I counted down to midnight with my best friends Tracy and Alistair and we agreed that 2007 would be a better year.

That it definitly has been;

I've re-gained contact with my aunt who had fallen out with the family several years ago, her son Lachlan means the world to me

I came out of the closet fully in February and it's been one of the best moves I've made; I don't have to hide myself anymore

I managed to book flights to London to meet Alistair who I'd been talking to for 18 months on MSN... What a brilliant day that was.. Cheers Alistair  thumbsup 

I started 5th year at school and although it's been really tough work wise, it's so much better for banter with teachers  rotfl 

Then, I lost a few friends because of some silly little argument that meant I made myself very ill

But gained them back very quickly when I apologised what I'd done

I met the most amazing man ever, but his ex got in the way so that buggered all chance of a relationship between me and Paul

I went back to London and was given the independance and trust to wander around on my own.. only a fortnight from my 16th

I turned 16 and got to stay in the house all on my own  biggrin 

All in all I thought 2007 was a good year, but I'd like to see 2008 make it better for me, a boyfriend maybe?

Looks like everyone's 2007 sucked just like mine. On April 16th my Grandmother passed away, then May 17th my Grandfather passed away, leaving my mother in a pretty bad way. Although she was in a bad way on Christmas Day and looks like she will be on New Years Day. I've been so worried about her over the months but looks like she is getting though it. Her brother has been trying to swindle the inheritance all year, not that my mother or her brothers or sisters are bothered about the money, just the principle. Luckily, we had a couple of pieces of good news this year My brother got married to a lovely girl, who is now expecting a baby in the Summer, and it's possibly twins. Hopefully next year may be a good year, with a little niece/nephew on the way, I just might find someone to settle down with, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Let's see...

For me, I started back at college to pursue a second undergraduate degree: a BA degree in Geography in Planning to complement my environmental geography degree from Millersville University of PA. Starting back at school at West Chester University of PA, I applied for a summer internship at the Lancaster County Planning Commission, for which I was interviewed on January 4th. 45 minutes into the interview, they hired me to fill one of the two positions.

Going into the internship, I had a big interest in traffic and road planning. However, my interest has shifted to more of transit and nontraditional transportation planning (bicycle and pedestrian planning). Lancaster County is trying to promote more bicycle and pedestrian friendly develolpment, including street enhancements, such as widening shoulders and/or sidewalks. 3 Years ago, they replaced the Fruitville Pike Bridge, one of the major bridges leading into downtown Lancaster, which included a wider sidewalk for enhanced safety to bikes and peds. They also want to replace another dilapidated bridge, Lititz Pike Bridge, with one similar to that of the Fruitville Pike Bridge, because this bridge also handles tons of bike and pedestrian traffic daily.

Prior to the internship, I had a fairly solid semester at West Chester. I earned a 3.2, and had 2 of the toughest professors. I got a C+ in one of the tough classes, but managed a B- in the other, which was transportation planning. This class also emphasized transit and bike/pedestrian planning. The transportation planning class, along with the internship have changed the way I think about transportation planning. My interests are now in regional transit, especially with commuter rail service, as well as high-speed rail transportation like the TGV system in Europe. This semester and the internship have really motivated me for the Fall 2007 semester.

For the Fall semester, I proposed a research project involving a SEPTA regional rail line that should be expanded from Media, PA, out to West Chester, as well as courses in urban geography, GIS, Europe, and environmental planning. I completed my studies some 3 weeks ago, and ended my undergraduate career with a bang, as I earned a 4.0 for the semester, and a 3.6 overall, enough to make the Dean's List! I have many possible job possibilities unfolding for me now, including a possible Transit Ops Planner job at SEPTA. Others include a GIS job down at the University of Salisbury down in Maryland, and a traffic engineering company northwest of Philadelphia, which also has an expanding office in Harrisburg.

I really hope something comes through for me. This would really make my 2007 complete, and make my 2008 a whole hell of a lot better!!!!  crossfingers
