1. What did you do in 2007 that you'd never done before?
went to a gig on my own. met someone in a band. was in a mosh pit, getting kicked in the face by a crowdsurfer. getting up front for gigs. asked someone out and got shot down in the nicest possible way. got yelled at by chavs outside of a cinema for being an emo. I'm not denying it, that was hilarious.

good grades, self confidence. less flaily spazzy lj entries. housemates!

7. What date from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Reading Festival - all the lengths we went through to get tickets only to lose them. and find some more on the floor. an awesome weekend seeing loads of bands I loved.

like what you like. don't feel guilty about it. the benefits of listening.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I called her on the phone and she touched herself--
...I am just kidding on that one.

so we bottled and shelved all our regrets
let them ferment and came back to our senses
drove back home and slept a few days
woke up and laughed at how stupid we used to be

we'll get over it
sad, strong, safe and sober
we'll move forward
and know where we went wrong
but 'you can't go home again'.

[straylight run - mistakes we knew we were making]

so yeah. '07 has been a hell of a year. ♥
