What were you doing ten years ago?

Can’t believe 2007 is ten years ago, mates. My entire twenties have passed since then, literally.

I’m starting this thread now to use as a means of procrastination throughout the afternoon/evening, so I’ll write more about the 2007 version of WR later on, you guys get it started for now. As accurately as possible please. Chat and internet pictures and all that sort of thing is encouraged, as long as you also answer the question.

Was probably not working on my dissertation

Working at a bowling alley whilst increasingly failing to maintain an absurd long-distance relationship that was partly responsible for me dropping out of uni a year earlier. I had recently turned 21 two days after my Gran died and that combined with my poor decision making had led to my relationship with my parents being at it’s lowest ebb. It wasn’t great.

John O’Shea had just scored a last minute winner at Anfield though so it wasn’t all bad.

working and about 2 months away from the end of a 5 year relationship, and a trip to florence

March 2007… Would have been in my second year at uni, generally having an okay time, feeling a bit aimless but having a pretty good time nevertheless.

Chatting with dickheads about on a music forum, man I must have been in a dark place.

I was studying in my first year at university. I had been with the TV for nearly a month. In other news:

I had a cocktail of sorts judging by old photos. And had terrible hair.

I listened to this music. Vibing on Luke Vibert apparently.

First year of college, so at half-four on a weekday I would just be thinking about of getting the first few cans in. I was in a viable long distance relationship at the time, enjoying living in a new city and really enjoying absolutely destroying my body with alcohol at levels of consumption I’ve never matched.

Yes! Remember watching that down the pub.

enduring the second worst year of my life

I remember watching that in one of the side rooms of one of the college bars. I eventually ended up working there for four and a half years and was manager by the end.

Had moved back to belfast a few months before, had a miserable time (not because of belfast), left a year later.

Last ever visit to Glastonbury. I still have the pair of wellies bought for the occasion.
