2012 in review?
How was it? Mine was pretty top shelf, it was off to a rocky start with a bit of carry over messiness and fallout from breaking up with the exgf in late 2011 but once that was done and dusted it was all good

Highlights:
Getting my diving certificate
Spending an entire year single
Making a bunch of new friends, getting reacquainted with old
New job, with company car
Getting out of my old job, which was a shit place to work
Managing to go a month without booze, something I haven't done in years
Yoga

Lowlights:
Losing a bunch of friends throughout breakup, in retrospect most of that was for the best though
Realising my heart's just not in the DJing thing anymore, but I got to go out with a bang
Bunny boilers… wtf?

Canberra was shit, no work in Newcastle, Sydney is a pretentious bloated whale and Melbourne is one beard short of a hipster circus freak.

I just wasn't feeling it any more, I'd been doing it for close to 10 years and it was just time for a change. Biggest sign came from Family: up until probably mid 2011, I could play whatever I wanted there and still have a packed out dance floor. Afterwards people would come up and shake my hand and say "Awesome set dude, and I actually recognised maybe two ch00ns that you played... Mind = Blown".

From around mid 2011 I'd have to play Beatport/ASOT chart toppers to keep the floor (something I absolutely detest doing), and as soon as I'd play something the slightest bit underground or left of the centre, the floor would clear.

If the Family has picked you out, you obviously must have some skill - ever think of moving to a move flexible club?
Or did that experience ruin mixing for you?

Many ups and downs this year, and not the fun kind...

I think the best thing is to chalk this year (and most of last year) up as expiriences not to repeat.
On the upside 2013 will be here soon

New job, fresh canvas and far better outlook on life...
Bring it on!

This 'checkpoint' does allow you to say 'well, what have I done this year, and what can I do next year to make it better?' It's one of those Driver Revivers that give you a cup of tea or something, but it's a Driver Reviver of Life...
