a little on the grim side, but.

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?

I went on antidepressants.
I dug a grave.
I got hit by a car.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I never make resolutions. I achieved some things I wanted to achieve, this time last year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

A couple of ladies at work. No one very close.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

My cat. Aka my daemon, my best friend, the externalization of my will to live.

It was rough.

5. What countries did you visit?

This one..

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?

A better job; a different place to live.

7. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

Several bad ones I don't intend to rehearse here. For good ones, the night I had right before I got hit. It was lovely.

8. What was your biggest achievement of this year?

Survival. Also, happiness.

9. What was your biggest failure?

Not for public consumption. But I fucked something up.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

...I got HIT by a CAR.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

My new computer.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

My friends! Y'all are the best. <3 My family.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Some of the people I live with, including myself. Some politicians and public figures. And some people I never expected it from; having a front row ticket to a divorce is almost as awful and destructive to your faith in human goodness as going through one yourself.

14. Where did most of your money go?

Food, rent, moving, books for my Kindle.

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

I regained the ability to get really really excited, and promptly got really really excited over that. Roleplay again.

16. What songs will always remind you of 2011?
Cats Laughing - When the Black Knight Moves
The Oyster Band - A Fire Is Burning
Lupe Fiasco

17. Compared to this time last year,
i. are you happier or sadder?
Infinitely happier.
ii. thinner or fatter? It's a photo finish.
iii. richer or poorer? Poorer, but not significantly. Mostly in terms of medical debt I am ignoring for now.
iv older or wiser? Both? This is a weird one.

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

Sleeping. Being honest.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Being afraid.

20. How will you be spending New Years Eve?

Here! Probably online with you guys.

21. Did you fall in love in 2011?

No. But I met someone I liked. That is enough for now.

22. What was the best concert you attended?

Rachael Yamagata at the Parish is the only one I can recall. It was a pretty good night! And then I got hit by a car. (Yes, seriously. That was the only concert I went to this year.)

23. What was your favorite TV program?

Can I say half of Doctor Who? The second half of the season won me over eventually, but the first half was fantastic.

24. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?

Not that I can think of.

25. What was the best book you read?

Hard! The new Pratchett was pretty good, but probably not the best book I read this year. I recuse myself.

26. What was your greatest musical discovery?

Lupe Fiasco. Fuck yes.

Okay this is too long, I have lost interest and I'm quitting.
