I did this back in 2008 at my other journal; figured I'd redo it for this year and share it with you all.

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?:
Well, I moved to New York City...finally. Went to Cedar Point by myself. New Years was great. Found out what was really important to me. Found out the six train is ridiculously late. (That's a huge inside joke, guys -- but it is SO, SO TRUE.) Transferred my job. Did my first NaNo in a long time that I didn't ML, and really seriously kicked some ass at it. Worked overnights. Went to Ohayocon for more than one day. Stayed with Dylan! Yes, the same boy stayed with me for an entire year. I wonder how he's able to cope with my sanity?

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Um...I don't even REMEMBER any resolutions I made for last year. All I really remember about New Years last year was working. (And going into personal at midnight.)

3. Where did you ring in 2011?
Work. It sucked.

4. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?:
July 21, 2011. As to why...it's a secret!

5. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?:
I was 23! I can't even remember. *sad* Although I didn't have to work. Oh! I went to Miami to go see Dylan graduate. I remember this now. And the pianos and happiness and stuff.

6. What was your status by Valentines Day?
Taken, but Dylan doesn't celebrate Valentines Day (boo hiss).

7. Were you in school (anytime this year)?
Nope! Done with that for at least now. First year that I've been completely out of school.

8. How did you earn your keep?
I'm still working for the same company, still taking the same phone calls. (Does this need to change?)

9. Did you suffer illness or injury?:
I got an eyelash stuck in my eye during New Years...other than that, not really?

10. What one thing made your year immeasurably more satisfying?:
Moving to New York. The morning of September 7th, when I woke up in Emily's grandmother's apartment and realized I was here...wow.

11. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?:
I never do well with this question. Can we count the Coney Island Cyclone?

12. What political issue stirred you the most?:
I'm not a very political person. Can we just skip this question? Although I want to figure out where I stand on these issues.

13. Where did most of your money go?:
Rent.

14. What was your favorite TV program?:
Either Madoka Magica or Penguindrum. Although Heartcatch ended at the beginning of this year.

15. What was your favorite film of this year?:
The Lion King, in 3-D. Lame, I know.

16. What was the best book you read?:
The Hunger Games trilogy.

17. What was your greatest musical discovery?:
Putting up Almond Dust for sale on iTunes.

18. Did anyone close to you give birth?:
My other cousin's family finally had their first. They came into town for the reunion. So cute.

19. Did anyone close to you die?:
No.

20. What countries did you visit?:
No countries. But I visited Nashville, Charlotte, Allentown, Madison, New York...I went on a lot of road trips.

21. What was your biggest achievement of the year?:
The aforementioned posting on iTunes, as well as getting my books out onto Nook and Kindle.

22. What was your biggest failure?:
I know there were things that made me cry this past year, but nothing that I've surprisingly failed at. Maybe this means I'm not living?

23. Compared to this time last year, are you…
i. thinner or fatter?: I think I'm a bit skinnier

ii. richer or poorer?: probably poorer

24. What do you wish you'd done more of?:
Being confident in myself.

25. What do you wish you'd done less of?:
Sleeping/hiding under my blanket.

26. How will you be spending Christmas next December?:
Hopefully in the city. Or in Zanesville, to make my sister shut up.

27. Did you fall in love in 2011?
Can I not answer that question? >< But the short answer is yes! Yes yes yes yes yes.

28. How many one-night stands?:
Still coming in at NONE.

29. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?:
There is a certain someone who hasn't spoken to me for more than a year. I still dream about him -- I actually dreamed about him last night. I regret that, but it happened in 2010.

30. What did you get really, really, really excited about?:
Moving to New York City.

31. What did you want and get?:
Freedom.

32. What did you want and not get?:
The position in Flushing, which means I am stuck rocking a five hour commute every day.

33. What was your best month?
July. But July always is. (Holidays for the word)

34. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?:
Money! Friends. My otaku self back. Penguins! Love. Dylan. The six train. All these things I want to hold close.

35. How would you rate this year with a scale from 1 (shitty) to 10 (excellent)?
TEN PLUS ONE.

36. What's something you learned about yourself in 2011?
I am capable of anything I put my mind to, and I am never alone.

37. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?:
My fashion sense actually matched the rest of the world for once -- the maxi was in, flared pants were in...

38. What kept you sane?:
A very special friend.

39. Who did you miss?:
Same special friend.

40. Who was the best new person you met?:
All the people at work, and basically anybody I met in New York.

41. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011.
A couple: You don't have to take the easy way out. Even when times are rough, you still wake up the next morning. And Flatbush Avenue is worth traveling to.

42. What song will always remind you of 2011?:
"Kasuka na Kaori," by Perfume. That one will definitely remind me every time.

43. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
"If I take a six train, I'll be too late -- Don't leave me here, take me with you! -- Don't ask why. That word does not exist." -- from Penguindrum

44. What Quotes sum up the year?:
"Since then, every single day...from that day on, I've been here! So you don't have to be alone!"
