One day and five and a half hours left of 2009.

Here are some of the important lessons i've learned this year:
  • That failure isn't always a bad thing
  • I'm not as alone as i thought i was
  • The accelerator is on the right, the clutch on the left and the brake is in the middle
  • The Grapes is the best pub in London town
  • Twitter is highly addictive
  • Everybody likes ZOMBIES!
  • Make bold mistakes
  • 'Creativity is imagination and imagination is for everyone' Paul Arden
  • Sometimes you just have to say 'Fuck it! I'm going for it!'
Happy New Year!
