Happy New Year

I'm (more than) slightly drunk, so I don't care if this is binned or deleted in the morning.

Happy new year, everyone. 2011 was amazing professionally and fucking abysmal personally. Here's to 2012!

I'm going to go finish this bottle of champagne.

Maybe I have drunken a little bit too much, but I think, today I was allowed to drink... This is the only one day in a year, where I can drink and where I can have the music via the boxes a little bit louder... I am running back now to the fridge, to take my next champagne...

i talked to an old lover of mine new year's night, as the ball dropped, other things were busy going up, a good night.

the new year though.... eh... hard to say, i think my RAT 7 mouse which has been completely a joy to work with up until now has started left clicking twice everytime i try to click once, a power supply gave up the ghost as well but that was before the year started...

this christmas season has seen a lot of new computer parts needing to be bought or just wanting to if they didn't, thankfully i can afford it all so far, not sure on the new mouse though, maybe it's a software problem, or maybe it's still under warranty and cyborg will send me a replacement, buying a new $100 mouse is going to hit the budget hard this month if not though.

i pounded nearly a pint of fireball cinnamon whisky with my roommate tonight as our celebration since he was at other people's house for the night of the new year, that sure as hell feels good, i am almost feel like taking a little stroll it feels so good.

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.

2011 was a very eventful year for me.

Among many other things, my wife and I got new jobs and moved 1100 miles.

All seemed mostly good, except, one of my friends, who ran a really nice bar, was shot and killed the night before New Year's Eve, so celebrating just didn't seem the right thing to do. I got together with some people and spent time remembering him and his place. He used to make sure everything seemed easy during hard times; always found ways to ensure the conversations stayed positive, and kept his customers coming back for decades. He served very good food and good drinks. His prices were so low it would be hard to make the same stuff at home for less. To his regulars, his bar was their living room. The odd thing is, no one seems to know why anyone wanted to harm him, as his place was always very peaceful.

2011 was very bad for many of us, for me, my husband and all our friends.
So many of their partners and cats have died, also our lovely cat Paule (4th August).
Since the death of our cat my life is not the same anymore.
I really want to leave that bad year behind me now...

Any new year resolutions?

I decided to take on an enormous challenge this year; not sure if it's possible though, but I'd like to try. It's a rough one. I hope to reduce our (wife and my) total January 1, 2012 student loan debt by 25% before 2013 starts.

To put this into perspective, this is quite an undertaking; our student loans, as of 2006 when we first started paying on them, were at a dollar amount that could buy someone a very nice house/garage in a suburban neighborhood. We've been making minimum payments since then, and they just don't seem to be reducing the debt almost at all, so I'm attacking them as hard as I can this year. I'm taking on a couple new supplemental jobs, and I'm going to take the year off from volunteer work that I should be paid for.

At the school, my main job title is school counselor. I am now also hired to work with the after-school program, something I used to do for free. I also coach middle school football, which helps; and I'm requesting the baseball job (might get outbid though - it goes by seniority). I have been taking on some DJ gigs again, but was doing them for free. 2012 will have no free DJ gigs outside of family; it's either pay or no gig. I have accepted a tree service job for the coming summer (I'll be trimming or removing trees for someone that has a lot of scheduled sites to work on). That will likely give me more firewood to either burn for utility price reduction or sell. I'll keep selling books/CDs/DVDs on Amazon, but I don't make much money there. I'll also pretty much look for and accept any odd job where someone is willing to pay me to do just about anything I'm capable of ethically doing.

I have a new rather important reason for all this; expect a thread within the next couple weeks.

Post resolutions if you have any.

Don't forget to live before you die.

Congrats

Pretty sure I can guess what you are on about

Unfortunately, I don't really believe in new year resolutions, but I think it's great for people that can resolve to do something and stick to it.

I'm tempted to make the same tired "1920 x 1080" joke.

One thing that is really bugging me about new years is that the gym is packed. I'd much prefer that people who are not going to stick with it just stop going already to unclog the works.

I do have a bit of a resolution, although it will be extremely difficult: stop putting in so many night/weekend hours for work, especially considering I'm salaried and do it only because I don't like to let things slip through the cracks.

I'm finally starting to take some heed to people who tell me "nobody dies wishing they spent more time at the office".

^ It's not necessarily a bad thing; it just means you care about what you do, which very few people do anymore.

I've been saying the same thing for years. I've never once been able to do it without having a guilty conscience. The thing is, I'm going to initiate a project at my highest quality of work every time, or I'm not going to take it on. The time that project should take becomes irreverent; doing it right is all that matters.

Same for you in IT and the user base you support. You half ass something, you are going to have a lot of people pissed at you.

To keep the drunk thread alive: Turn the music on and drink a beer. The reason: music is always good with drinking a beer. 2010 I was in a dance club with very good Deep House 4 times, and I had always drunken a beer there. And if we play music live in our Synthesizer-Studio, it is always better to drink a beer, because this brings me into the right mood (other musicians and DJs on live-events do that, too). I love also to drink a beer, if DJs are playing live and their live-events are broadcasted via a SHOUTcast stream (especially, if Milkdrop 2 of my lovely Winamp is running on my Full HD monitor)...

Not necessarily drunk per-say, but a few shameless crossposts:

The usual beer-specific thread (although it didn't really get to be the beer thread until towards the bottom of the first page):

http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=247186

My beer image dump of beer:

http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=325632

I've had an odd hobby over the years of trying new beers, photographing them poured with the bottle/can beside, and scanning the labels (somewhere between 750 and 800 images at this point).

The funny thing is, it's rare for me to have more than one in a day and extremely rare for me to have more than 2.

Yeah, but the problem is if you have too many beers you suddenly can not beat match as well as you think you are

If I'm working where there's beer available, you better believe I'll have someone bring me one, but, I'm usually busy enough that I nurse that same beer in front of me almost the entire night, or if it's a long night, perhaps up to 3 max (if it's a wedding where I already have a room upstairs waiting for me).

I, for one, let the drinks fly at weddings seeing as how I hate going to them and all. I make friends with the bartender and may even get drunk enough to dance. I tell the person I'm with that there is one rule: If I make it out to the dance floor, take me keys.
