    Emigrated to NZ and in 20 months set up my own dance event promotions company, scored my own radio show each week and started making a name for myself as a hard dance DJ on Aucklands clubbing circuit.

    Also got a wonderful girlfriend who I'd do anything for and we've been together for 9 months. :)

    When i was 8 years old i was in a swimming race and was doing quite well. I was going to come about 2nd: A girl who was in the race behind me started drowning in the water and none of the people watching did anything! Her parents were there and teachers etc! I turned around, swam over to her and dragged her out the swimming pool.

    I can't think of many that really stand out as something unique but it's the smaller things that i can think of.

    Getting through my gcses and two years of college without any major fuck ups.
    Getting back on a horse after 10 years of not riding and still being able to ride pretty damn well.

    Oooh, I hiked down the Samaria Gorge too a couple of years ago. If it had been one degree hotter they'd have closed the park (scary). Amazing scenery.
