I’ve done this meme every December since 2011. I sometimes looks back into those past ones to see if anything has changed. Some haven’t. But this year has shown some big changes to me and my family, so why not?!
1.What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?
I used a deli-style slicer. And I still have all 10 of my fingers.
2.Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I never had one to begin with, however I have a few goals for the new year which I’ll outline on Thursday (holy shit I got New Year’s Day off!)
3.Did anyone close to you give birth?
Close? No. But there have been a lot of babies born among my high school friends.
4.Did anyone close to you die?
*sigh* This one is tough. I lost my brother-in-law in February. He was sickly for a long time, and it broke everyone’s heart–even Rydia’s, despite her being too young to have a grasp of death. She loved her uncle.
5.What countries did you visit?
I can’t afford to travel yet.
6.What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014?
A new body. Not being able to move around because I’m constantly in pain (it’s worse after I come from work) is the most depressing thing ever.
7.What date from 2014 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Christmas Day. I was especially reminded of how awesome my in-laws are. It was a stressful year for everyone and they made it special.
8.What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Getting thrown a whole plate of food. Twice.
9.What was your biggest failure?
I can’t say I had a big failure. It was full of frustration for the first half of the year.
10.Did you suffer illness or injury?
I’m permanently stricken with pain from the waist down, and in some rare cases, my wrists.
11.What was the best thing you bought?
A Sodastream. Shut up, it’s awesome.
12.Whose behavior merited celebration?
My in-laws and to some degree my boss.
13.Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
14.Where did most of your money go?
Pull-ups, bills, and Taco Bell. Been on a kick lately!
15.What events did you get really, really, really excited about?
Can’t say I got really excited about anything.
16.What song will always remind you of 2013?
Shut up, it grew on me.
17.Compared to this time last year, are you:
i.happier or sadder? happier.
ii.thinner or fatter? my boobs have gotten a little bigger…
iii.richer or poorer? slightly richer. Having a job does that.
18.What do you wish you’d done more of?
Blogging? Yeah, it was pretty skimp this year. Even Ronnie noticed.
19.What do you wish you’d done less of?
Stress about shit out of my power.
20.How did you spend Christmas?
With my family stuffing my face while playing some Atlantica Online.
21.Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?
22.Did you fall in love in 2013?
Mmm…can’t say I have.
23. How many one-night stands?
One. I bought one for my birthday along with a dresser (something we really needed). It’s being used to hold Ronnie’s second monitor.
24. What was your favorite TV program?
Been on a cooking show kick. Hell’s Kitchen, Cutthroat Kitchen, and Mystery Diners were among those I watched and looked forward to the most. Work schedule permitting.
25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
Nope, I’ve forgiven people who I hated last year though.
26. What was the best book you read?
Fruit-fly attention span here.
27. What was your greatest musical discovery or rediscovery?
As much as I don’t care for music played on the radio these days, I decided to open up a smidge to it. Some of it isn’t entirely horrible. I still prefer internet radio though.
28. What did you want and get?
A Sodastream, Keurig coffee maker, and a new laptop!
29. What did you want and not get?
30. What were your favorite films of this year?
The last time I’ve been to a theater was when Rydia was barely a year old. So yeah.
31.What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
29 and we went to Golden Corral. NEVER EVER EVER EVER go there on a weekend, especially on a Sunday.
32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Less stress. My stressors shifted from not having a job to being in pain constantly.
33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2013?
Comfortable. Complete with pajama bottoms.
34. What kept you sane?
Games and caffeine.
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most/least?
So over Kim K.
36. What political issue stirred you the most?
37. Whom did you miss?
38. Who was the best new person you met?
My boss is awesome.
39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013:
Everything happens for a reason.
40. Do you have any lost feelings of others.
41.Quote a song that sums up your year:
I don’t know if there is a single song or quote from a song that sums it up. However, compared to last year, this was an awesome year. 2015, make it happen.
