The Good:
- Got my Gibson
- I wore a dress for most of one day, and I'm not ashamed to admit, it was the most comfortable thing I have ever worn.

The Bad:
- I've ended up almost entirely broke.
- I drank so much at the start of the year (and the end of 2007) that I basically did what Duff McKagan did to his liver... but in half the time.

The Ugly:
- I had a huge falling out with my best friend, and I doubt we'll ever manage to get back on track. It's actually quite a struggle for us to even be in the same city as each other without ripping each other apart. Pretty much seven years of friendship right down the toilet.
- This especially sucks because she has lots of hot friends and they've all sided with her.

All-in-all, a pretty bad year for me.

A lot of music isn't really going anywhere. There are tons of fans in here going 'oh my god, <> is evolving so much and <> is so shit lol!' but tons of it is just recycled material and tired ideas.

Good in that the Phillies won the World Series (skipped class to go to the parade, totally awesome), the first championship for Philly in my life (almost 21 years), halfway through college and only one half to go, got a new guitar that I love (my artcore), started taking piano lessons (my 4th instrument) and other less major things. Bad in the way that I lost two people in my life, one very young person to suicide, and some other minor things. So in summary I suppose a pretty good year, but let's hope next is better!

I hope the new year brings everyone good times, Happy New Year UG!

Overall a good year: formed a new band, bought a Flextone and a Jetking, saw KISS live (and lots of other great bands), got another promotion at work.

edit: and I got on the UG forum! Not really sure yet if that's a good or a bad thing.

Good:
Reading festival. Mint.
Trip with a friend to rock am ring. **** WW2, Germans are the best people ever.
Seeing Metallica twice.
Good A levels
The rugby team i support tore **** up.
2 Uni offers (so far)
Got away to Nice and went hillwalking twice.
**** loads of good gigs
Found my musical niche.

Bad:
Lost my girl to someone else, which was entirely my fault.
I didn't get out enough to parties and stuff.
I still haven't forgiven my dad for what he did to my mum.

I guess good outweighs bad.
#23
ehhhh.... At first, my friend got a job at Malco, and we used to go watch free movies all the time, that lasted a while until he got fired for something he didn't do... Joined a band right around that time. Around the middle of the year we got really serious and now we have music on our myspace... OH I also learned how to sweep on guitar. Moved out of a crappy house into a nice house, close to all my friends... THEN GOT HIGHSPEED INTERNETZ AHHH. My sis was working at gamestop and I got a ton of cheap and free games. Towards the end of this year I've had some really bad family problems, but one of my friends moved across the street from me, which was really cool as I can go over there anytime now and not have to drive 10 miles. Then for Christmas, I got a 360, and I just set up my room with a nice stereo system for my PC, TV, and 360. Hooray for no more computer speakers.

So lets review:

Good:
-Free movies as Malco because friend got hired.
-Joined a band with my friends
-Moved to a nice house.
-got HIGHSPEED INTERNETZ. (Maybe the greatest part about 2008, besides joining a band and having a life of course)
-Learned to sweep and my overall guitar skill is better
-Recorded songs with my band, had a tons of fun.
-Friend moved close within walking distance
-Sis worked at gamestop, thus me getting cheap and free games.
-Got a Xbox360 that I've been wanting for awhile
-My room is now awesome
-My facial hair is getting thicker every few months (wait what?)

Bad:
-Friend got fired for a horrible reason.
-Bad bad family problems
-Always depressed when I'm in school
-Never got a head for my cab, and still use a crappy guitar
-Sis got a manager job at Barnes&Noble, no more cheap games.

I'm in such a good mood that I can't think of all the bad, but hopefully there isn't anymore.

So here's my good/bad meter:

0-----1-----2-----3-----4-----5-----6-----7-----8-----9-----10
