Finish, sum up, conclude.

Wow, so like....

It's 2015.





It just hit me.... last night.... around 12pm.... that it's 2015. What? Why? What the freak happened to that fabulous thing called Time?

Anyway, so, I kind of have a tradition where I do this tag at the end of every year. I just think it's a good way to sum up the last twelve months, and it's nice to have something that I do every year, you know?

So here we go!




1.) What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?
     Got employed. BORING RIGHT?

2.) Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make one this year?
     Phffft. Resolutions.


I'm afraid of commitment.

3.) Did anyone close to you give birth?
     My sisters did. I'm am an aunt x13. (I don't remember their birthdays. I'm a terrible aunt.)

4.) Did anyone close to you die?
     Not that I know of. I mean... unless I'm like horrifically out of the loop. (And then, in that case, ignorance is bliss, right?)
  
5.) What countries/states did you visit?
     #Broke #coward #Idontleavehome

6.) What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014?
      A boyfriend. HAAAAAAA! Let's be realistic here. I want a unicorn.
    
7.) What date from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory?   
      March Freaking fourteenth, Jack changed from Blog Friend to Best Friend.



8.) Did you move anywhere?
     Not out of the state.

9.) What was your biggest achievement of the year?
      I did done got a job.

10.) What was your biggest failure?
       Me. I suck.


    
11.) Did you suffer illness or injury?
       I got an extremely painful sore throat. It was bad. (I think that's as bad as I got. I'm an extremely healthy person. *knock on wood*)

12.) What was the best thing you bought?
       I bought a new laptop after my old one exploded in a blaze of fire and smoke.

       Also, this shirt.



13.) Whose behavior merited celebration?
       *squints at acquaintances*

14.) Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
       Oh, a person. Let's say said person is someone I love a lot, but I like the idea of punching Said Person's face.



15.) Where did most of your money go?
        Rent and Christmas.
        WHAT CAN I SAY, I BUY FABULOUS PRESENTS.

16.) What did you get really, really, really excited about?
        Amy opening her fabulous present. (My priorities, right?), Jack's visit. Other stuff.

17.) What was the best concert you’ve been to this year?
        I don't think I went to any this year.
      
18.) What song/album will always remind you of 2014?
        I got both of Christina Perri's albums for my birthday, so those are always going to remind of this year.



But I think the song that's going to make me always think 2014!!!! is probably Hey, Brother.



19.) Compared to this time last year, are you:
       Older, duh! I don't know. I feel sadder.


 20.) What do you wish you’d done more of?
        Drawing. I think this year I might actually have a resolution!! Shocker! 


 Shhhhh, we're not talking about it yet, it's still an idea that's festering.




21.) What do you wish you’d done less of?
        Being angry. I was angry a lot last year.

22.) What was your greatest musical discovery?
        Christina Perri! Oh my gosh, that girl can write pretty music!

23.) How did you spend Christmas?
       Loudly, with lots of laughter and food. We're like the Whos down in Whoville.



24.) How are you spending New Year’s?
       With lots of laughter and food. (We stayed up until midnight watching Flashpoint, because that's the way WE party.)

25.) Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?
        *waves at Gina*

26.) What was the best book you read?
        THE RAVEN BOYS AND SCORPIO RACES AND 100 CUPBOARDS. (which you'd know if you've been following me blog for any length of time.



26.) Did you fall in love in 2013?
       Matt the Staples Guy had me in flutters for a while, but other than that, nah. I'm still a single little potato.


IT'S A SOURCE OF GREAT SADNESS TO ME.

27.) What was your favorite TV show?
        Favorite? SINGULAR? YOU NUTS OR SOMETHING? I don't choose. I am not a chooser.

So list:
Not in order

Prison Break

Flashpoint

Grimm

Supernatural

Doctor Who
 
    
 28.) Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
        Hate's a strong word. I vacillate between loving The Aforementioned Person and viciously wanting to kick The Aforementioned Person.

29.) What did you want and get?
       A cellphone, some Supernatural, books, clothes, a job....

30.) What did you want and not get?
        There is a lack of a male potato. I feel like I'm ready to make small fries now. *wink*

31.) What were your favorite films of this year?    
        Lists are my favorite.

Maze Runner


The Winter Soldier


THAT'S TWO. WHAT THE FREAK. I KNOW I WATCHED MORE.


32.) What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
        I worked all day, and then I opened presents, and then I went swimming, and then I watched a movie, but I forget which movie. I was younger than twenty, but older than eighteen.
      
33.) How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2014?
       I don't know.

34.) What kept you sane?

35.) Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
        So not over it.



36.) What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
        Not being stressed out all the time.

37.) What political issue stirred you the most?
        I don't do politics. I find them to be deadly dull and depressing

38.) Who did you miss?
       *eyeballs Jack.*
       *waves at Angela*
       *squints at Gina and Laura and families*

39.) Who was the best new person you met?
        Hannah.Face. We bonded over Spike.



40.) Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2014.
       


41.) Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
        "You're gonna catch a cold, from the ice inside your soul.
 Don't come back for me. Don't come back at all."

42.) Five personally significant events of 2014:
       1.) FREAKING LICENSE
       2.) FREAKING JOB
       3.) Moved out. (it sucks, don't do it.)
       4.) Started using color in my drawings. (I know, such an achievement.)
       5.) Got Cait to fangirl and cackled maliciously as she spiraled down to insanity.

43.) Five things I want to do in 2015:
        1.) Get my life together.
        2.) Get serious about selling my drawings.
        3.) Visit my sisters. 
        4.) Record music.
        5.) Go to Frontsight.

44.) Five people I’d like to know better in 2014:
       People. HA.
       All of you guys.

    SONG LYRICS THAT SUM UP THE YEAR:

    "As this dusty road now settles
    And I see what lay before
    Every tear that held a broken dream
    Is now shattered on the floor
    And now bursting forth in splendor
    Are the blossoms of second tries
    Because dreams that bear the mark of love
    Are dreams that never die"
    -"Moving Forward" by Colony House

    AND BECAUSE I'M SO DARING I SHALL ANSWER ONE MORE:

    *ahem*
    YOU SOUND SAD. :( Sad isn't good. 2014 wasn't my best year ever, either, and I didn't even do anything. Well, not much exciting. I travelled a bit. I ate lasagna and I will take the advice to heart and not BE a lasagna. It's wise. Very. I got a dog that is like a minature hellhound. BUT I HAS GOOD FRIENDS SO THAT'S OKAY.

    Never over Dean.

    I hope your 2015 is faNTASTIC. No really. :)

  8. TRESKIEFACE! Hi! I'm still giggling over your lasagna comment on my bloggy. 'Twas hilarious.

    Ooh. Flashpoint. Flashpoint looks good! I just started watching Bones, which is, so far, really... weird. The plot is good, but the two leading characters (who supposedly are in love) have zero chemistry and fight constantly. They're more like brother and sister than a couple. *Shrugs*

    I hope you find your male potato. You seem like you'd make a really epic mum. And... Matt the Staples guy? Like Taylor the Latte boy? Please tell me you've seen this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXS0nEOx_20

    Treskie, you do NOT suck, you are amazing and inspiring and talented, and if anyone ever says that you suck, they're lying. Just so you know.

    You got a job! That is awesome. You must teach me your secrets.

    Cheers, Frenchiest Fry!

      FLASHPOINT IS AMAZING AND FABULOUS AND OH MY GOSH IT'S INTENSE AND AMAZING BUT NOT AS INTENSE AS PRISON BREAK AND IT'S LIKE *COMPLETELY* CLEAN YOU MUST WATCH IT. LIKE, NOW.

      I don't like it when the couples on shows don't have chemistry. I can't ship them if they don't have chemistry.

      I hope I find a male potato too. lol. I THINK IT WOULD TOO, SO WHAT'S THE DEAL, I'M ELIGIBLE! No, he's just Matt who works at staples and he's beautiful lol. BUT I HAVEN"T SEEN THAT! I watch in a mo...

      Aw thanks. I didn't say that to fish for compliments, you know. But thank you. I shall try to view myself better. XD

      I KNOW RIGHT!??? (the secret lies in having your sisters already work there and put i a good work for you)

    2. OKAY SO I STARTED WATCHING FLASHPOINT AND HSHXHSJAJHX JULES AND SAM AND SPIKE AND JUST EVERYTHING ABOUT IT IS SO PERFECT AND EVERYTHING IS JUST SO INTENSE.

  10. I ACCEPT YOUR CHALLENGE!!!

    Best book of 2014? Ummmm...BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE, um, um THERE WERE MANY MORE. BUT GANSEY!!!!!!!
    Did I fall in love? Also ummmmmm. I didn't really fall in love but I had a LOT of crushes. The fun of being a teenaged girl!
    Best TV show? DOCTOR WHO! Even though I have missed most of the newest season. Darn. And Selfie. Pretty good but kind of fluffy most of the time. But oh! Do webseries' count? Because then Nothing Much To Do and Emma Approved and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (except I started that in 2013), ClassicAlice, and BLIMEY COW because Jordan Taylor is fantastic.
    HAHA! Adding a fourth one. :) Favorite movie. THE HOBBIT: BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES. OF COURSE. And The Winter Soldier was kind of amazing. BUT THE HOBBIT MADE ME CRY! Like a baby. IT ABSOLUTELY RUINED ME. And DIVERGENT! And Maleficent was pretty cool but only because of BRENTON THWAITES! I have a slight obsession. *smiles sheepishly* AND I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO SEE THE MAZE RUNNER! BUT DYLAN O'BRIEN!! And I haven't been able to see The Giver either but I want to because of BRENTON THWAITES AGAIN! hehe :)
    And, what the heck, one more. Song lyrics that sum up the year.

    Many places I have been
    Many sorrows I have seen
    But I don't regret
    Nor will I forget
    All who took that road with me

    Night is now falling
    So ends this day
    The road is now calling
    And I must away

    To these memories I will hold
    With your blessing I will go
    To turn at last to paths that lead home

    And though where the road then takes me,
    I cannot tell
    We came all this way
    But now comes the day
    To bid you farewell

    I bid you all a very fond farewell

    They don't really sum up my year but I love them and a couple of my friends moved away this year (2014) and my brother is graduating this year (2015) so it kind of does make sense. PLUS, IT'S FROM THE HOBBIT!! I love this song so much, I put it on my ipod and listen to it on repeat until I fall asleep. It has basically taken over my life.

    That was fun. and by the way, YOU DO NOT SUCK! YOU ARE AN AMAZING, FANTASTIC, AWESOME PERSON. Even though I have never met you in real life, I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!!

    2. ClassicAlice is about a girl in college who decides to live life according to books. It sounds kind of weird and it is kind of weird, the Crime and Punishment and Macbeth ones got...interesting, but yeah, they're cool.

      YOU DON'T KNOW WHO BRENTON THWAITES IS??? Just google him. RIGHT NOW! He's cute...:)

      AND GO SEE THE HOBBIT! IT IS FANTASTIC! AND SO SAD! OH THE FEELS! I also want to see Into the Woods because its a musical, and fairy tales and Chris Pine. :D
