10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Asthma. God such a frustrating time dsfojgkj when I was a kid, the doctors said I would grow out of it, and then... Audrey got her cat and WHAM! YOU NEED AN INHALER! I don't use one anymore but I do have to admit the cold air has made some of the asthma come back.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
iPhone. Definitely.

My friend Naomi, who has spent the year battling cancer. Christy, for being the sweetest person ever. [ profile] unrequitedangst, for listening to my constant whining.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Oh, you know. Here and there were some decisions I didn't agree with. I don't want to dwell too much on it.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Meeting Ariel and Ian! Getting a job! Getting a promotion! Starting the next chapter in my life!

16. What song will always remind you of 2009?
Hm, I don't think anything really reminds me of 2009.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
(a) happier or sadder? Ugh, I wouldn't say I'm sadder, but I am definitely more prone to wallowing and depressed self-pity nights.

Okay I don't know if that really sums up my year but it's the best I can do. You should all just be happy that I tried, okay :[

Happy New Year everyone! I hope it's a good one. I am staying at home so idk I will probably wander out at midnight and wish my dad a Happy New Year and that will be the extent of my celebrations. I think I may go outside and take a walk for a bit right now; I'm feeling kind of restless.
