    Making the balance of the year, eh?

    I learned about UAVs.
    I organized an Electronics Club with a friend at the uni, with mild success.
    I took up our family olive fields with my dad, learned a few things.
    Made a few new friends.

    I think that sums up the most important ones.

    Lets see, I did some good work on Bluetooth
    Got into a really bad car accident. (Still in rehab and therapy)
    Trying to buy a car but the planets are not aligning. Was gonna get a Scion FR-S which was amazing but they only did a production run of 5000 which makes me leary of making it an everyday driver when the 13 Civic Si comes out next month.
    Found out a very good friend from HS got her PHD then took a swan dive off the GGB 1 week later. (This absolutely devastated me)
    Lost a couple friends, gained a couple others.
    Finally didn't get arrested this year! Yeah! me! (Still 11 days to go, I think I can - I think I can!)

    learned more about computer-related software/hardware and made several extensive modifications to my own laptop

    completed my secret knock detector project

    made a lot of friends

    quite my job at Kmart

    got a job at a University as a lab assistant

    helped a lot of people, both at the school and otherwise

    learned a lot from people, both at the school and otherwise

    watched WAAAAAAY too much tv

    became a bit of a celebrity at my former-workplace and my old high school

    started working in video editing

    began work with 3-D CAD designs

    survived the Apocalypse

    There's definitely a lot that I left out. It's been a busy year for me! Hoping to make more out of my life during the coming year.

    That's fun, but burning bridges was always risky.

    One thing I don't miss is the end-of-year "review" they did at my job where they basically rip you for not doing things you had absolutely no control over. That was the great thing about my job:

    100% of the responsibility, 0% of the authority.

    National Semiconductor (now TI) can kiss my skinny freckled Irish backside.
