2010 in Review


(image source)

1. Where were you when 2010 began?
I am totally cheating because i am going through my old blog entries, and the whole first week of January was blank, I am going to say nothing special happened. I don’t even think I partied that week, or maybe I partied so hard that I don’t remember what happened… this is a possiblity.

2. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?
Get my ears pierced! Ha, I know, I’m ancient and I just got my ears pierced. I am sure there are other things but this is all I could think of.

3. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Again, I’m cheating here but I can’t remember if I made any New Year’s Resolutions, I am going to say No there weren’t any and I doubt that I’d make up any this year either. But, I have been doing this thing 3 years in a row, that’s gota be something right.

4. Go to any concerts this year?
Why yes I did! Utada Hikaru / FIR / Hot Hot Heat / Our lady Peace & The Arkells / Dragonette / Metric / Phoenix 1 / 2 /

5. Will you be looking for a new job in 2011?
I think that’s all that I’ll be doing.

6. Did you drink a lot of alcohol in 2010?
I’m going to say NO because for the most part I didn’t but there was one incidence where I did, and it turned out very badly.

7. Did you go on any vacations? If so, where?
I went back to Beijing and Nanjing, also visited Hong Kong for the first time ever.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I would have to say graduating, although this is a combine effort of the past four years.

9. If you could go back in time to any moment of 2010 and change something, what would it be?
I would remind myself to eat a lot of food before drinking, I am so insecure that I’m feeling that this is the reason that I didn’t get what I want, if it is this reason, I might just never touch alcohol again. I am lying, at least I’d never drink with people that I’m trying to impress, or more like, I shouldn’t drink that much with people that I’m trying to impress. Who am I kidding, I’ll be so stressed that everything will be a double.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
allergies, fevers, colds, and this one time that i broke out completely in hives due to god knows what.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Panasonic Lumix LX3 and my new laptop.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Well, this one thing, that got me jumping up and down but it didn’t work out so there was a lot of pointless excitement.

16. What song will always remind you of 2010?
Tell yourself – Clazziquai Project apparently there’s an english version. did not know that.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you happier or sadder?
In the most general sense, happier, but also feeling very very lost.

I can’t think of anything :/

Being upset at myself.

Counterpoint – Delphic

I keep holding my head up, holding it up.
Holding my head up, holding it up.
And you just don’t come back, around.
It seems to me that we will never be.

And tell me nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong today.
Just tell me nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong, nothing’s wrong today.

No one in particular

38. Who was the best new person you met?

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010.
There’s really no point in stressing out about things, because they either happen or they don’t. There’s the ingredient of trying or not trying, but if you want it enough, you will try.

Oh, that and eat before drink.
