2005: Year in Review

It's that time of year again! Yes, this is my 'Year in Review' entry. This year proved to be an interesting and fulfilling one, yet stressful one. 2005 for me was a year of many 'lasts': last semester of uni, the last as a student, last of the Star Wars movies (please don't laugh!), and probably most important of all, it will have been the last full calendar year before I get married.

For those who aren't familiar with my 'Year in Review', it is the highlights of my year that I have taken from my own blog entries, with the appropriate links.

Anywho, let's get into it:


- Sick New Year!: New Year's always seem to end up bad for me, we'll see how this approaching one goes.

- Sem 1 2005 Courses: Choosing my last ever uni courses
- Computer time: My first theory of the year: how long it takes to do things with computers.


- Rage Against Rolando's Machine: Absolutely annihilating a computer with a crowbar, hammer, and a Kids-size squash racquet. Contains a link to the Gallery for photos and videos.
