Okay, so I decided to do a meme.. I've barely posted recently so I thought this was a good idea.. to sum up my year. O:  40 QUESTIONS AND SOME PICTURES!!


 1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?

Probably.. a lot of things, haha. Lived in Korea.. drank Soju.. yeah.

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

I kept some, I failed at others. I'm going to make some for next year, too. 

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Not anybody SUPER close to me. But probably some losers from high school, or something.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes, my uncle died this year. My mom's oldest sister's husband. Growing up, I always spent all of my summers (and sometimes Christ seasons) in Spain, with my family.  I always stayed at my oldest aunt's house, so, I was pretty close to this uncle.  Although his health had declined recently, his death  came suddenly and without warning.  To make it all worse, he died on my aunt's birthday.. :/ yeah... I don't like to talk about it.

5. What countries did you visit?
Er, Korea, mostly? I also visited Japan once.

6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?

Willpower.

7. What dates from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

... Uhm, none, I guess? I don't have good memory at all.. Yeah, I know. sorry.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

... I haven't achieved anything. SHHHHHIIIIIT.

9. What was your biggest failure?
Not losing like a single pound. DAMNIT!

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Yeah, more than the last 5 years of my life combined.  Most notable injuries
-While standing on the curb waiting to cross, a piece of broken sidewalk cement fell off a speeding truck and crushed my foot. FUN.
-Running an 105 degree fever (40.6 C)  for 3 days
-Projectile vomiting

11. What was the best thing you bought?

A new laptop! O: Also, EXPENSIVE.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

I dunno. My friend Marissa got super drunk the other day and was super crazy, it was funny. I dunno if she really deserves celebration, but it was hilarious.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Nobody. I don't really get affected that much by other people. My boss pissed me off a lot, though. :I  My job made me depressed, but it was just a combination of many things, not really a specific person..

14. Where did most of your money go?
My vacation in Japan.. headbands.. ALCOHOL. GODDD THE ALCOHOL. And some food, too, I guess.

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

My visit to Japan in summer. Any day I got off of work, since they were SO FEW.  

16. What song will always remind you of 2010?


..Don't ask me why. I just listened to it a whole lot when I first got to Korea.



17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder? About the same? But a bit happier.
b) thinner or fatter?  The same, I think. ;_;
c) richer or poorer? WAAAAAY richer.  (Last year I had like, zero dollars to my name, so, yeah.)

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
I wish I'd traveled more and gone to beaches and stuff while the weather was still good, instead of just binge drinking every weekend.

Drinking, eating.. spending money.. haha.

On the following saturday, we went clubbing and I didn't have to buy like any drinks all night. The night got kinda derailed by a huge fight between a friend and her girlfriend, and stuff like that. But it was fun.

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

My parents. My brother and sister. :/ My best friends at home..

37. Who was the best new person you met?
This isn't fair since it's my first year in Korea, everybody I met was new. SO my list will be a lot of people. Ciji, Ashley, Marissa, Ali, Hyemin, Lici, all of my coworkers since March.. yeahh..

38. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010:

Don't hesitate to yell at people when theyre fuckin with you. Yelling is the universal language.


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

(From "Are you satisfied?" by Marina and the Diamonds)

High achiever don't you see
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I'm a control freak
Driven a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

Cause it's my problem
If I want to pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and sway
It's my problem, it's my problem
If I feel the need to hide
And it's my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die

Are you satisfied with an average life ?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life ?
Are you satisfied with an average life ?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life ?
Are you satisfied with an easy ride ?
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

40. Share pictures....From the beginning and the end.

They might be slightly out of order, but.. this is most of them.






































I don't really have any recent pictures from the end of the year, cause I haven't taken too many.. I've mostly taken videos. Speaking of videos, I should post them soon.. O:

Anyway, yeah, I hope you enjoyed reading WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT ME. If you decide to fill this meme out, let me know. I stole this from my friend Ashley ( onmyownroad  ) -- you can see us together in the ridiculous AMERICAAAAHHHH picture.
