2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Will I make more? Yeah, but I'll put that in another entry.
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
4. Did anyone close to you die?
5. What countries did you visit?
6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
More money would be nice. Unfortunately, this has to be answered with "a credit card."
7. What dates from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
December 2: passing the driver's test.
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Driver's license. SIXTEEN YEARS, PEOPLE. Sixteen years of failing on this topic. That's half my life, yo. I actually got to the point of attempting the test right before my latest permit ran out, and failed within about 20 seconds. And then figured, "Okay, fine, this has taken forever anyway, it'll probably just KEEP taking forever, I should just assume I'll be taking this test over and over and over again." I saved all of the notes for the written permit tests (even though I literally took about two minutes to fill out the test last time), assuming I'd keep doing this over and over again.
Go figure that I will not be doing that!
9. What was your biggest failure?
Hm....well, I would have said flunking the first test.
10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Nope, let's hope this streak continues.
11. What was the best thing you bought?
*shrug* No one object stands out.
12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Elsa, my driving instructor's, for sticking by my crazy ass.
13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
My former friends flaking out. Mom for the usual crazy.
14. Where did most of your money go?
Same stuff as always: crafts and books.
15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Passing the driver's test.
16. What song will always remind you of 2010?
17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
Happier about some things, sadder about others. Beats me, really.

c. richer or poorer?
Probably slightly poorer/the same.
18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Angsting about work. Dealing with other people's drama.

*sigh* I am over R.Pattz since he shut up and stopped dissing Twilight in public. Yawn. Now I am back to the same person as ever, who I won't say because I get tons of crap for this one. I do, however, find myself liking Matt Smith. Who empirically does not strike me as attractive, but definitely has that "adorkable" thing going on.
