The year that was and the year that will be

2007 seemed to be a year of stillness and not much happening for me. Looking back a lot happened but nothing sticks out as being either amazing or terribly bad. It was a good year.

From going round the world and seeing friends for the first time in several years, to achieving some of my goals I set last year. Whilst at he same time forgetting or adapting some of my goals from last year too.

This was most definitely a year where my obsessions over my body and image have taken a back seat to striving for a totally different type of achievement. In fact I have not been to the gym at all this month, and at the moment I most definitely have a small bump of a tummy from the extremely hectic eating, drinking and socialising.

But on the plus side of the goals I did achieve all but one of the business goals, but the one I did not meet is being met at the moment with the SAAS platform well and truly underway.

I talked about my dislike of new years resolutions last year and I still hold the same thoughts. It should be goals not resolutions.

I am keeping my goals to myself this year, but many of them revolve around the six month plan I came up with in October as a result f my business discussions in the USA.

Like every year great icons of the world passed away such as Bergman and Pavarotti, along with acquaintances and friends who also lost their own personal struggles this year.

I am still looking for my theme song for this upcoming year last year was I Just Wanna Fucking Dance. But this year I am having trouble deciding what I want.... Will it be sentimental, dance or something in between?

This year has been a year for making a lot of new friends and expanding our group, whilst at the same time getting back in touch with old friends who we have lost contact with. But there has also been the deterioration of a close friendship which has caused me much stress.

This year has also seen quite a few couple we know part company which is always sad when people break up, but in the main for the best.

The total annihilation of John Howard and the almost unprecedented throwing out of a government in a buoyant economy and the rise and rise of Kevin Rudd as the new Australian Prime Minister.

So far he has been doing what he promised he would do, but I think we must be vigilant and encourage Kevin and his Government to continue to fulfill all the promises made.

So what will 2008 bring?

I don't really know what 2008 will bring, I do know that it will be the end of the USA Bush era, but beyond that I do not know whether it will be a Clinton ticket, Obama ticket or someone else?

In Australian politics I don't see anything great happening until after July when the conservatives no longer have the majority in the upper house. Until then I think wankers like Bill Heffernan will continue to oppose any form of equality for same sex couples.

Anyway so 2008 will be here in a few hours and a whole new year of opportunity.

Week Wrap Up

This weeks news and events that have got me going:

Ultra Right Wing Anti-Gay Young Liberal Wins Preselection

The right wing bigot, Alex Hawke has been preselected for a safe NSW Liberal seat, prompting an ex NSW Liberal leader to say, "Even Blind Freddy cold see he was the wrong choice". Alex Hawke is the ex President of the Yong Liberals who famously once told people that the Liberal party should get back to it's roots of ultra conservatism and vote against such things as equalising the homosexual age of consent. It's a great day for the NSW Labor party though, the further right the Liberals get the less likely they are to ever get back in power!

Dawn O'Donnell, the Queen Bee of Gay Sydney Dies

The undisputed queen bee of the gay Sydney scene, Dawn O'Donnell died last weekend after a battle with cancer. Dawn at one stage or another owned or started some of the most famous and important gay clubs, pubs and stores in Sydney. Not far behind in controversy, Dawn was linked to fire bombings, murders and was often cited as the head of the Sydney Gay Mafia. Regardless of the rumors she was also a great stalwart of the community and gave her time and money to help support and better the gay and lesbian community.

First Official Child Adopted by Same Sex Parents in Australia

Two men in Western Australia were the first official same sex coupe to adopt a child who was not related to either of them. This great step forward for equality is already being met with great derision by the right wing bigots with the all too familiar catch cry of 'will someone think of the children'. Personally I thought that's what adoption was, where two loving people adopt a child to love, support and protect, inst that thinking of the children?
