2012 in a Nutshell

Yeah, yeah, yeah 2012 ain’t technically over yet but I had to do this Meme now otherwise I’d forget.

I found it via Nikkiana who got it from Aunt Becky (who runs the FABULOUS site Band Back Together and I encourage EVERYONE to check it out.)

Anyway, without further ado…

1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before?

I visited The Liberty Science Center and Liberty State Park

2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I never stick to resolutions, and to be honest I forgot what 2012’s was.

For 2013, I plan to go outside for an hour every day during the warmer months because I need a f’in tan.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Yes, my sister in law welcomed my niece.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Knock on wood, no.

No international travel for me.

7. What date from 2012 will remain etched upon your memory, and why:

June 11th, 2012

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

I hired a lawyer for my disability case

9. What was your biggest failure?

There was some things that could’ve gone better, but I didn’t EPIC FAIL this year thankfully

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

I got horridly sick in the spring and Theraflu became my best friend, about a week or so ago I gnashed up my shoulder and had a stiff neck.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

I don’t think I bought anything really rad this year

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

I don’t think anyone had any exciting behaviors this year

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

My extended family on my dad’s side and the man who decided to go shoot up a school because he was unstable

14. Where did most of your money go?

Bills (imagine that.) and hotel costs/food/registration for AnimeNEXT 2012 and registration for 2013’s convention.

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

Starting a relationship with Sarah, and the possibility of seeing her before June because my parents want to go to the Museum of Natural History in March.

16. What song will always remind you of 2012?

Gangnam Style (and I still have managed to avoid listening to it.)

That’s right, I’ve never heard it and I don’t plan it.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

i. happier or sadder? WAY happier.

ii. thinner or fatter? Thinner, probably.

iii. richer or poorer? Poorer

Okay, Meme, let me take a stab at that:

i) more or less like Justin Beaver – People think my hair looks like that twit. *grump*

ii) more or less likely to decide inanimate objects looked like boobs – More. I’m gay, and a perv.

iii) more or less likely to watch Glee – I’ve only really liked the first two seasons, lately it’s been sucking.

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

GETTING OUT and DOING things. Human interaction is frustrating sometimes though.

Random surfing of the Internet and sleeping

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

It was pretty satisfying as is.

The whole damn political shindig pisses me off.

37. Who did you miss?

No one, really.

38. Who was the best new person you met?

I met a LOT of new people at AnimeNEXT this year that I’d be here forever rattling off names and I’d feel bad if I’ve ultimately forgotten one o’youse..

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2012:

You’re not going to make everyone happy, no matter what you do and no matter how hard you try to avoid conflict.

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

I just want to feel alive
The times you don’t wanna wake up
‘Cause in your sleep it’s never over when you give up
The sun is always gonna rise up
You need to get up, gotta keep your head up
Look at the people all around you
The way you feel is something everybody goes through
Face Up – LIGHTS

I also recapped 2012 in blog posts over here.
