Chapter 26: Memories Of Yesteryear!

I want to start by saying that I haven't updated in a month because we've been too busy with moving, unpacking, and work. Things have been going really good with the new apartment! I love living in the city!

Here's a survey thing I got from a blog I follow (True North). Feel free to take it if you would like!

Part 1~~ 2010 questions:

1. What was your most significant accomplishment in 2010?

Growing up. No joke. I got a full-time job that I was able to keep and actually excell in; got bills (things of which I had never really had before) and paid them all on time; and got my own (well, shared with my boyfriend) apartment. (We didn't actually move in until January 1, 2011, but we signed the lease and everything on December 31, so I think that counts!

2. Is there any one choice you made that you would change in 2010?

Hm... Not that I can think of right now, but I'm sure that, as soon as I finish this, I'll have a million things pop into my head. That's how it always goes.

3. What was your favorite band/singer in 2010?

Oh man... I don't know if I could put my finger on just one person or band - I really discovered a lot of music that I liked during the past year.

No, wait, I take that back, I think I know who my favorite was. Please don't kill me... Ke$ha!

4. What was your favorite movie of 2010?

That would definitely be The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo!

5. What is your favorite food/dish in 2010?

My favorite food has been, and always will be, potatoes! As for 2010? I would have to say asparagus! I discovered this little gem sometime later in the year, and now I can't get enough!

6. Favorite Restaurant in 2010?
TGI Fridays is always my go-to place!

7. Favorite and worst tv show in 2010?

Favorite: Dexter!

Worst: Jersey Shore. Ugh. If there ever was a way to waste an hour of TV time, this would be it.

8. Favorite Clothing Store in 2010?

I don't really know. I basically only shop at one store, so I'll say "Lane Bryant".

9. Favorite activity in 2010?

I know it's not really an "activity", but I really liked trying all of these new things with B. We started eating (mostly) vegan; saw some new movies we wouldn't normally watch - and ended up loving them; and we went out a lot more, whether it be to dinner, a movie, or just to a relative's house.

10. Describe yourself in 5 words for 2010.

Oh boy... I don't know. Let's say "focused", "maturing", "humble", "fun-loving" (does that count as one word?) and "quiet".

11. Your style in 2010?

Scrubs. That's what I wear 90% of the time. After that comes pajamas. That makes up about 8% of my style. And then you have the jeans and a t-shirt category. Haha!

12. Most common sounds in your home in 2010?

Mice, rats and squirrels chewing on the walls. No lie.

13. What's on your bedside table in 2010?

A lamp, a clock, a book I never finished reading, and my pajamas.

14. Your favorite thing hanging on your wall in 2010?

We didn't hang that much, but I would definitely have to saw the wall mural I ordered though a catalog. Here's the generic picture they have in the catalog, but I had it personalized with our names.

15. What kind of calendar did you own in 2010?

We didn't own one, which was pretty irritating. But, obviously not so irritating that I went out and got one. Ha ha!

16. What was the first thing you did when you got up in the morning in 2010?

Hit the snooze button. Then went pee and got dressed.

17. What is the most expensive thing you owned in 2010?

Uh, I don't know. Probably my phone.

18. What item you own holds the most value for you in 2010?

The most value? I'm not fully sure I understand this question. I would probably say my phone, though. I use it as a form of communication, as a planner, as a stress reliever... I love it!

19. Your favorite book of 2010?

I don't read as much as I would like. I think the only book I read was "The Kite Runner", and I didn't even finish it (even though it was excellent!). 

Part 2 ~~ Your life

1. If you could change one life choice you made, what would it be?

For my whole life, or just this past year? For the most part, there are lots of things I would like to change, but then again, I figure if I were to change something in my past, I wouldn't be where I am today. And I don't want that, because I am pretty happy with where I am today.

2. Who (in your life)  are you are most like?

I'm realizing I'm more and more like my mother each day. This terrifies me, but is also very humbling.

3. Who is the most influential person in your life?

I would say B and my mom are tied on this one. I repsect both of their opinions greatly, and do what I can to please both of them.

4. Name 3 best friends you have had in your lifetime. (And tag em' if they're friends!)


5. Favorite family heirloom?

Hmmm... we don't tend to keep a lot of things like that. Although, I'm sure B would say that I love the blanket my grandmother always had. I've slept with this thing for a long time, and love it!

6. Favorite childhood keepsake?

My mom and aunt used to paint ceramics. They held classes, and painted and sold their items. They actually painted about 20 of the Disney characters for me, and I still have them to this day!

7. What's your dream job, and are you doing it?

My dream job is to be a veterinarian, but school costs WAY too much. I do believe, however, that I have found the next best thing... I'm a vet tech!

8. If you didn't have to work for $$ what would you do with your time?

Travel. Be a vet tech. Do lots of arts and crafts.

9. What are you most thankful for in 2010?

My family and friends.

10. What celebrity do you admire in 2010?

I don't think I can pick just one. There are multiple celebrities that I adore.

Part 3~~ This Year (2011)

1. If you won the lottery this year, what would you spend it on??

I would buy a Smart Car first. Definitely a Smart Car. Then I would pay off all of mom and dad's debts, and then B's debts. I think I would put the rest in savings, to be honest.

2. What do you want to change about your life in 2011?

I want to go out more and meet new people. I want to travel more. Other than that, I think things are going pretty well!

3. What do you want to accomplish in 2011?

I kind of think that this is similar to the previous question. So, I guess my answer would be the same.

4. Describe in 5 words what kind of person you want to be in 2011?

"Responsible", "caring", "fun-loving" (again, does this count?), "passionate" and "well-rounded" (same as 'fun-loving'... one word?).

5. What is one quality you want to change about yourself in 2011?

I want to be more motivated. I have a gym membership, but haven't gone in months. I want to see and do things, but never take the initiative. I NEED to be more motivated.

6. What is your new years resolution for 2011? (If you have one...)

I have a couple. 1) Lose weight; 2) be more social; 3) grow-up; 4) be who I want to be; and 5) get more cultured on things. 2011 is here and not going anywhere any time soon, so I better man-up and start taking charge of my life and becoming the person I know I can be.
