End of Year Survey 2012!

http://astoundance.com/livejournal/PicMonkey%20Collage.jpg


1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before?
I was introduced to Magic: The Gathering, so I played a whole lot of that. I also went to Disneyland Paris for the first time. That was pretty ace.

2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I can't say I remember what they were, but since I pretty much always say 'draw more', I'll assume I went for that, and I think it's safe to say I totally achieved it this year. I always make resolutions - and they're usually 'draw more', so!

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My friend Erica had her third baby boy this year :)

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No, thankfully.

5. What countries did you visit?
Only France, and only for a couple of days. My jetsetting has cooled right down, it's totally depressing.

6. What would you like to have in 2013 that you lacked in 2012?
Money and a Cintiq. (the latter requires a lot of the former.)

7. What date from 2012 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
I can't think of any specific dates offhand. Probably a good thing, since I'd probably only remember Bad Things.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I broke a goal I'd set myself at October MCM Expo :) I'd definitely say that was my biggest achievement, it's something I'd been working towards for a while.

9. What was your biggest failure?
I can't think of anything specifically, which is nice.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Naw, just a cold bug that kept me down for ages.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Uhhhh, a Netflix subscription? Haha, I can't think of any major purchases I made myself this year, but I've used the hell out of Netflix.

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
I'm so genuinely happy Moose is doing well / trying hard at university, and happy he's being open and honest with me after a few major bumps in the road earlier this year.

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
See above bumps. Eh.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Definitely on attending conventions and eating all of the food while at them.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Going to Disneyland Paris, Jonathan Coulton's concert in Bristol, every convention ever, every major TF2 update, Friendship is Magic. I get excited easily.

16. What song will always remind you of 2012?
It'll always be sodding Gangnam Style, won't it? Haha.

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

i. happier or sadder?
So much happier.

ii. thinner or fatter?
About the same. Blah.

iii. richer or poorer?
Technically richer, I think. Maybe. Probably not. Haha.

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

19. What do you wish you’d done less of?
Being paranoid and insecure and anxious and blah.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
With my family, opening presents, eating all of the food, drinking from breakfast and watching Doctor Who. Perfect.

21. How will you be spending New Year’s Eve?
In Bristol, with my closest friends, watching the Fireworks, I expect!

22. Did you fall in love in 2012?
I was already in love. D'aw.

23. How many one-night stands?
None :p

24. What was your favourite TV program?
oh god. Mad Men. So much Mad Men. I miss Mad Men. Why isn't it next year already? We'll have new Mad Men next year. Also Gravity Falls. But mostly Mad Men.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
Yes. Because I am a lovely person.

26. What was the best book you read?
Godidontthinkievenreadanybooksthisyear no wait I MUST have. I read, goddamn what was the ONLY book I read this year. OH GOD okay no I read The Hunger Games trilogy. There. At least it was three books technically. They were good. Well, the ending sucked but they were good otherwise. I REALLY need to read more, I am horrendous.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Uuuuhhhhhhh the FTL soundtrack? God, I sound like such a shut-in.

28. What did you want and get?
ARTMORE and YES. (Is best job.)

29.What did you want and not get?
More Gravity Falls :|

30. What was your favourite film that you saw for the first time this year?
The Avengers <3

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I was [age redacted] and I spent it with my family on the day, and then flew out the next day to Disneyland Paris. It was aces.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
More Moose. More Money. More Art. More Holiday Somewhere Abroad.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2012?
All of the dresses. I think I wore jeans like, four times all year. :>

34. What kept you sane?
Video games and 90210 :>

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Prolly Tom Hiddleston because of Loki related reasons.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
SOPA, gay marriage stuffs and gun control.

37. Who did you miss?
I miss Moose whenever we can't see each other often. It sucks. Fortunately we've actually been seeing each other pretty regularly lately. It's almost like we're in a real relationship.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Alice & William! Even though I'd met them before, I got to know them this year and they're pretty rad.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2012.
Try and let arguments drop. Even when you don't want it to. Even when it's killing you to. I mean, I won't be able to act on it, but I know I should bloody well try.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"BAGUETTE!" <-- Moose told me to type that.

After all these years are we circling back to being in the same fandom again? Go figure. (I'm old enough to be Tom's mother and I don't care.)

Going to friend you from my current LJ, ro_anshi. Hope you will friend me back there.
