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.
