Since I've been dead for like... 2 years+ on LJ, I figured the best way to let people know I was alive and kicking was to post a meme about my year in review. So here it is!

1.What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before? Became a certified critic, went to Europe, worked on a student film, graduated college, moved away from home, voted for a winning president.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I never keep my resolutions.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? My Deshikins' brother had a baby girl named Amelia.

4. Did anyone close to you die? No, but a lot of my favorite actors/celebrities did. R.I.P. Bettie Page.

5. What countries did you visit? Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France and England.

6. What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008? More money, part of a master's degree, an internship, a satisfying relationship.

7. What date from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? December 13th. Two years ago, it was the day of my greatest failure and this year it's the day of my greatest accomplishment.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Graduating, becoming a critic, being voted for best A&E journalist at Southeastern.

9. What was your biggest failure? Procrastinating too long on projects.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? No, but I did suffer emotionally from the stress my last semester had given me.

11. What was the best thing you bought? My iPhone. I love that damn thing.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? My friends who always support me.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? A certain woman who made my last relationship hellish to say the least.

14. Where did most of your money go? Rent, gas and my other bills.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? Traveling outside the country and finishing school.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder? I feel I have more experience and that makes me happier.
ii. thinner or fatter? Same ol' cuddle bear.
iii. richer or poorer? I really lack in the green these days.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of? I could have done better with Philosophy, done more writing, had been a president APO deserved, re-connected with old friends.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of? Procrastination. It is the one vice of mine I really hate.

20. How will you be spending Christmas? I celebrated with my friends at my apartment on the 23rd, then spent it with my family on the 24th and 25th.

22. Did you fall in love in 2008? I thought I was close to it, but I realized it was more of me wanting it to be real than it actually being real.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
You load sixteen tons, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go;
I owe my soul to the company store...
