I adopted a dog this year, after 27 years of wanting one.

Saw my favourite band, Refused reunite after 14 years, and got to see them twice. (I bet 90% of people on here will be like "what the fuck" but whatever.
Whistler cruise with the VW audi guys was tons of fun

40+ days of snowboarding last season was pretty damn good too.

And I got engaged. Great year. This is only my personal excitements, so I don't really know if anyone cares, but hey, shit is good, so I thought I'd share.

I met some pretty sweet people, and at year's end, met some awesome people.

Glad I bought my car, allowed me to meet a lot of great people, showed me some serious community work with the whole richmond subaru bullshit and taught me the mechanical side of things on more then just Subaru's. If I hadn't bought the car, I'd be soullessly completing my 9-5 job and wondering what I did wrong 10 years down the line.

surprised that so many RS members were willing to lend a hand for me to borrow a 14mm socket and help lower my car in the middle of the night.

Personal - My best friend managed to beat cancer this year for the second time in her life and survived a very risky surgery doing so.

RS - Helping out random members I've never met before when they have car troubles.

edit: Oh, and Conner's Day. I'm proud of this club to have committed ot such a big meet in such a small amount of time!

made a lot of great friends at a time when I felt alone.

met a lot of new great people.

decided on a lot of life decisions and had a great journey of self acceptance.


Above: I consider one of the top 10 days of 2012!

Best part of 2012? The st0ck & n00b meets. They were a lot of fun and we'll want to be doing them again in 2013. They were 0% BS and it was great to meet a lot of new folks out there. Go find a post of bcrdukes and hit the THANKS button.

Biggest regret of 2012? Trying to put rules on the "Fucked Up Shit" thread. The amount of hate I got for that one made me regret being born. Sorry folks. I briefly fucked up the fucked up shit.

Hmmm 2012 eh, What a year.

Got my N after having an L for almost 4 years because i got my car on the road. Spent a ton of money on building an engine and my car. Got in a few concerts like Motorhead, Kiss, Metalica and a few others. Did some Hiking, camping, offroading, Road trips and some placer mining.

Meet some pretty cool guys at some of the meets i started to attend this year and got to see some nice cars, even got some compliments about my old gray 80s hatch :P
Worked my ass off and bought a second car (Black on black) that was a one owner. Sat for 9 years not running and had electrical problems and now it runs and drives quite well but needs a little more tuning.

Also found out that i am going to be a Big Brother this March! I dont care if i get a brother or a 3rd sister... I am going to teach them how to wrench
Oh also can thank again Nabs for the awesome photo of my car. Nicest photo i have of my baby (link below)

After being without a toy for a couple years, I finally bought a motorcycle again, and it so happens to be my dream bike, and got it for a steal after being contacted out of the blue to buy it when I thought it was gone.

My busiest year for acting; booked 4 commercials, a couple features and TV shows, won a best actor award for a local film contest, and went to New York with the film.

Film didn't win, but half way through my trip I met a girl, and we fell in love. That was in September, and I'm finally getting to go back; we've kept in touch, and I will be ringing in the New Year with her in NYC

New job, new career path, parents moved 2000 kms away and taking custody of my niece to add another kid to the equation. It's been a big year, lots of changes.

RS: Summer Meet's "Think of the Children" Food bank drive. Over $500 was raised in the end which equalled to $1500 worth of money donated by our members

Anything else (personal: work/life etc etc) has been fantastic. Really can't complain!
