1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?
umm... I moved in with my dad and step-mom? I've never lived with her full time, and I don't remember living with him (was too little)

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't do New Year's resolutions. I don't think that the new year is a good enough reason to make a change in my life. If I want to make a change, it has nothing to do with it being a new year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
umm... Well, I know a lot of people that had babies, but none of them were particularly close to me.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

5. What countries did you visit?
Didn't leave the country this year.

6. What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008?
A car.

7. What date from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
May 24. The day I decided I was definitely leaving Bryan.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Going back to school

Moving back in with my parents.

Not to speak of

My nephew Nathan, for being the sweetest and best behaved not-quite-2-year-old I've ever seen

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
*cough*Bryan and Wanda*cough*

Credit card payments and saving for tuition

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Dragon*Con... umm... Going back to school?

16. What song will always remind you of 2008?
erm... I dunno... I don't really associate music with particular years. More with people and events.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder? Happier, I guess, but that's not saying much
ii. thinner or fatter? Thinner! I've lost 30 lbs since I moved down here!
iii. richer or poorer? Poorer, technically, since Bryan was making so much, but I have access to more of it

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Keeping in touch with friends. I moved back and everyone had disappeared

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Putting up with Bryan's shit??

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
Eating seafood at my sister's house, then going to work (double-time pay for the win!)

21. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
Dunno... Hoping to be dating someone by then, at least casually.

22. Did you fall in love in 2008?
Yes, actually. Unfortunately, it didn't work out.

23. How many one-night stands?
This year? None, so far. Hoping for at least one soon. I really need to get laid...

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Well, Gilmore Girls, of course, but also Dexter, Doctor Who, and Torchwood

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I think I didn't hate Bryan yet this time last year.

OMG, so many! Don't know how to choose

A new start! Also, a peacoat!

29. What did you want but didn't get?
A divorce...

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
The Dark Knight, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk (why yes, I am a geek! How could you tell? XD)

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Umm... I think Cameron took me out to see the Dark Knight, but I might be wrong. Don't really remember. I turned 23.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
A divorce?

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2008?
Jeans and sweaters/t-shirts/whatever shirt fit me (this was not a good year for clothes for me.)

Internetz. And, oddly enough, my family

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Well, besides my usuals (Seth Green, Trent Reznor, Johnny Depp) I developed quite the crush on Gareth David-Lloyd of Torchwood fame. And of course, David Tennant of Doctor Who.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Gay marriage, universal health care, abortion, you name it, I argued about it.

So many people. At the beginning, I missed my family. Then I missed Cameron. Now I miss all my old friends. And, as always, I miss Dustin and Kent.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Hmm... tough one. Well, Ray is both cool and hot. Sarah, from work, is also cool and hot. Haven't really met all that many people, honestly.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008:
Don't get married just because otherwise you'll break up?

40. Quote a lyric that sums up your year:
Jeez.. Ask a hard one... OK....
First I was afraid
I was petrified
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
