Current mood: thoughtful
I need to get back into the habit of blogging. It makes me a better writer and I think it's my own little version of therapy. LoL And I kinda like the attention! (2002 views and counting, oh yeah!) I'm starting 2009 off slow with one of those cheesy surveys. Then on to some of the items discussed in my previous blog. :-)
Come on people, I loooove comments! Let me know how you rang in the New Year after you read this!
2008 IS OVER, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
Lost a friend?
Not because they died, but yes.
Stayed single almost the whole year?
Umm.... kinda? Does dating count as not single? It's kinda 50/50 I guess.
Kissed someone new?
Yes someone brand new and someone from the past that's new to this decade. (as far back in my kissing past as I can go, actually) LoL
Had your heart broken?
Not this year!
Had a stalker?
I had an ex leave love notes at my house, send roses to my work (Which I refused delivery of - I am such a beotch!) and various other creepy and unwanted things... It sure felt uncomfortable for a while, but hardly stalker-ish. Glad it's over though.
Done something you've regretted?
Were involved in something you'll never forget?
I think and hope so.
Visited a different country?
No. (need to change that)
Lost something/someone important to you?
Does my mind count?
Got a gift you adore?
Yep! (it's my faithful companion, the iPhone! I can admit to being swayed by shiny gadgets)
Dyed your hair?
Hell, I've done that every year since 8th grade.
Did you break up with anyone?
Kinda, if you consider what we did dating.
Did you get anything for Valentine's day?
Did you meet anyone special?
Re-met them, actually. There are a few of these cool kinda people back in my life! Facebook and MySpace ROCK!
Did you meet any new friends this year?
Yes, some very cool people I kinda knew and just had never talked to much before and a few brand-new people.
Did you dislike anyone?
I can't lie, I'm only human. Hell yes. And if thoughts could kill, they'd be pushing daisies.
Did you make any new enemies?
I like to think I'm not the kind of person who incites hate or anger in people. Hello? Have you met me? ;-)
Did you resolve any fights?
Who are your closest friends?
My mom (don't laugh, she is!), JDub, Tater Tot, my bowling girls, Daniel
Did you grow apart from anyone?
Yeah, but we can grow back again, too.
Do you have any regrets when it comes to your friendships?
I wish we had more time together. We all need time management classes (and internet connections! LoL)
How was your birthday?
Crazy. I think they whole turning 29 thing freaked me out more than I wanted to admit, so I went a little crazy with the shots, the dorky behavior and the sucking face with inappropriate boys. Not my proudest moment, but it was fun at the time. I guess I was making up for the fact that my 21st was so calm.
Did you have a cake?
I had delicious cupcakes made by Tater Tot.
Did you have a party?
A bunch of crazy people crashed my cousin's house for a night of debauchery, glow sticks, Polaroid pics, drunken board games and movies. (And anatomically correct play dough sculptures, if my mind serves me correctly) I think I need to burn some of the Polaroids as part of the 30th festivities. LoL
Did you get any presents?
Did you change at all this year?
I think I finally got some of the wildness outta my system that I'd been bottling up. I also learned a lot about myself and think I grew up a bit. I've always considered myself mature, but I think I needed to act like an ass for a bit to remind myself that normal me is pretty damn fun and ok. I don't need to try so hard. being a nerd who's happy with herself is a-ok.
Did you get your hair cut?
My usual layers
Did you change your style?
trying to dress more my age.
Were you in school?
No classes this year.
Did you go on any vacations?
Nope. Stayed at home and was a bum on my day's off. LoL
Would you change anything about yourself now?
I might get rid of a few of the scars of the past if I could. I still have a bit of growing and changing and becoming more self-confident and patient to work on. And maybe I need to worry a little less and live a little more. (but in more sensible ways LoL)
Was 2008 a good year?
Not too bad...
Do you think 2009 will top 2008?
Sure, no reason not to be optimistic!
