Well, I actually thought 2007 was a very good year.  2008 will be an interesting year though.  It has the potential to either be really good or mediocore depending on how things progress from here.  On the one hand, 2008 will be a godly year for video games (just like this year was) and should have some good movies and some good music (assuming non-Rap mainstream music continues its upward trend in quality.  Yes, I actually thought 2007 had some pretty good music.).  On the other hand, the writer's strike could definitely bring the year down a notch and lets not forget the oncoming recession.  Its being delayed at this point, but it will come eventually.  2007 was a 9/10 for me, so 2008 will definitely have its work cut out for it if it wants to beat 2007.

Oh well, lets hope for the best in 2008.  If things work out, I'll be traveling abroad for the first time in 2008 (I'm already trading in dollars for euros so I don't have to put up with the devaluing of the dollor ruining my plans), so that should make it memorable.

Well 1988 and 1998 had some pretty good music so I am hoping for the same in 2008! Another good thing going for music in 2008 is a year when a new president music is elected that year is more often than not music is good for that year: 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, and 2004. I don't think 1980 and 2000 were banner years for music.

I actually was thinking the other day music is going to be good next year(2008) but your right music can diissapoint me in 2008 and be medicocre.

2007 marked for a lot of misunderstandings and pressure for me. Other years have had a lot of pressure but this year by far presented the most. It was the first year my boyfriend and I did not take any lenghty vacation like we've done in previous years. He's been working very long hours and I've been in schoo for about 10 months out of the 12 months and I've also been working all this year, so very difficult. Plus, dealing with family trials, weddings, babies, surgeries (I had 4 surgeries this year - a record for me so far!) I've had a few emotional breakdowns and moments of burnout this year. So, I'm hoping 2008 will bring new ventures and less pressure.

I've got a feeling 08
Is going to be a good year.
Especially if you and me
See it in together.

So you think 08 is going to be a good year.
It could be for me and her,
But you and her-no never!
I had no reason to be over optimistic,
But somehow when you smiled
I could brave bad weather

Most likely, it will be more like 1998 than 1988.  But if 1988 was like 1998 then 2008 will be what 2018 will be to 2028.  But if you think about it, 1978 was more like 1898 than 1908 because it contained future elements of 1968 and maybe a little bit of 1958.  But 1958 in itself had elements of 1957 and 1959 so will 2008 have elements of 1979 and 1941?  Possibly, but more like 1901 than 1941 because 1968 was a shell of 1956 than it was of 1935.  But does the 2008 of 1997 resemble the 1980 of 1971 or the 1945 of 1931?  Perhaps 2008 will be the former 2007 of what 1972 was to 1971.  Maybe even we in 2008 will be like the people we were in 1980 or the people we strive to be in 2009?  Will 2009 be the new 2008?  Or will 2008 be the future of 2009?  I'd say that 2010 will be the new 2056 and maybe even 2008 will be the new 1978.  But 1978 in itself was more similar to 1968, but 1968 seemed more like 1978 and sort of had a feel of a 1981 or even a 1956.  But was 1956 a great year?  I felt it had more of a 1960 feel, whereas others feel it was more of a 1974 or a 1911 year.  But if you ask me, 1945 was the 2008 of what 2009 will be in 2010.  2010 will be a good year.  Long live 56 B.C.

I have a feeling that 2008 will be a good year. I'm moving to Japan so that alone will be exciting. It is also the last year of Bush and I'm happy about getting a new president. I'm also looking forward to Dr. Dre's new album, hopefully it will be as good as The Chronic. Usher has a new album due in the spring. Looks like a lot of good movies will be coming out in '08, like The Dark Knight, Get Smart, Iron Man, 10000 B.C., Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Madagascar 2.

Here's a silly question .. how come there is like 10 topics about 2008?  We're not even in 2008 yet, and already everyone is jonesing for 2009 ROFL


I'm jonesing for 2009 because the '00s will be the 2nd full decade I've lived through and now onto a new one... plus, we'll have a new president :)
