2004 eh?

How was my year? Well, boring for the most part. Got a boring-arsed job in January, went to see Dream Theater (and met up with a fair amount of the UKMGers on my LiveJournal Friends list; top chaps the lot of ’em, and I still owe Trev Ridney a pint. πŸ˜‰ ), eventually left the job, bummed about on the dole for a while, started Ninjutsu up in Glasgow, making several new friends in the process, saw G3 with old pal Steven and UKMGers Mark, Pablo and Paul, became happy as my friends Ryan and Sharon became parents to a bouncing baby boy named Charlie, and had a musical explosion towards the end of the year as I joined a band, played my first gig with them and got back in touch with some old college pals out of the blue, leading to securing me a week-long job as their producer/engineer for the debut EP of their band. πŸ™‚


So, in short, DT, new pals, G3, Ninjutsu, end of year music = good.
Old job, getting lots of job knockbacks, still being single = bad.
2004 Overall = meh, with occasional highlights.

At least 2005 is going to start well; the production/engineering thing kicks off a fortnight on Monday. Woo! πŸ˜€
