A Year in Review

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before? Break down and ask someone to help me get my financial shit together. IT WAS A GOOD IDEA.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Some. I got a job, I did not start taking classes again. I've maintained excellent friendships but haven't pursued spending time with individual friends as much as I would like to.
This year I resolved to stop worrying and love the internet again, give the school and friend stuff another go.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Nope!

4. Did anyone close to you die? Nope.

5. What countries did you visit? CANADA! I did visit Canada which I had never done before. Toronto was nice, I would like to go back. ...That was last year, right?

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011? A boyfriend for most of the year. :3

7. What date(s) from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? Memorial Day, as The Day We Did Not Go On A Date But Which Has A Name And Is Thus Easier To Remember, and November 24th, the day we started dating officially.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Being officially hired for this job, moving into a new apartment, having $1K in savings!

9. What was your biggest failure? Not being responsible and pro-active about my last apartment. Moving was good, but Blar and I sort of gave up on it months before we moved out, and it was a crappy living environment.

10. Did you suffer any illness or injury? Nothing unusual.

11. What was the best thing you bought? An anniversary present for my friends. :)

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? My friend Jess, for basically being incredibly awesome and engineering the most positive change in my life for the year. ...I mean, boyfriend was also awesome but I'm not sure I would have been in the headspace to ask him out if it hadn't been for her.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled? There was some family drama that wasn't awesome, but nobody's in jail or disowned or anything.

14. Where did most of your money go? Food and booze, I'm sure. I spent a big chunk going to New Orleans, too.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? EVERYTHING.

16. What song will always remind you of 2011? I don't... uhhh... Rolling in the Deep, I guess?

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. Happier or sadder? Happier, most definitely!
ii. Thinner or fatter? Thinner, a little, which is a pleasant surprise.
iii. Richer or poorer? Richer.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

19. What do you wish you'd done less of? Worrying about internet nonsense.

20. How will you be spending Christmas? Probably in Maryland, as always?

22. Did you fall in love in 2011: Yes. :3

23. How many one-night stands? Hm. There was a kissy sort of incident but nothing came of it. I don't do one night stands, really.

24. What was your favorite TV program? Game of Thrones, Project Runway (shut up), BBC's Sherlock

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year? I don't really hate anyone period.

26. What was the best book you read? Voice by Carla Speed-McNeil, The City and the City by Mieville,

27. What was your greatest musical discovery? Andrew Bird

28. What did you want and get? A new computer!

29. What did you want and not get? A million dollars.

30. What was your favorite film of this year? Harry Potter and the OH MY GOD IS IT REALLY OVER?!

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? Went out for dinner with friends, and I am now 30.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? ASKING BOY OUT SOONER.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011 ...Relaxed hipster-victorian?

34. What kept you sane? My BFF and other friends.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? Benedict Cumberbach

36. What political issue stirred you the most? Occupy Wall Street

37. Who did you miss?

38. Who was the best new person you met? My current boss, Mrs. N. She's an artist, very intelligent, an excellent manager, and probably the best thing to happen to the Department in a long time.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011: If you've got a strong community, do not be shy about asking it for help!

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year: Have the entire song:
