Review of the Year 2009
Only just spotted this and although we're a third of the way into 2010 I thought I'd still complete it, hope it doesn't bore you!
*** What did you do in 2009 that you have not done before***
Hmmm, I hitch hiked from Sheffield to Croatia using less than £15 for travel in order to raise money for charity. I graduated, I got my first 'proper' full time job.
*** Did anyone close to you give birth? ***
Nope I don't think many of my family or friends had a baby is 2009.
*** Did anyone close to you die? ***
My Grandad's wife died, we weren't amazingly close but it was still really sad.
*** What countries did you visit? ***
France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy and Croatia, I travelled through/visitied all these places on my hitch to Croatia.
*** What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009? ***
Nothing really as long as U'm relatively happy.
*** What dates will you remember from 2009? ***
Hmmm I don't remember dates as such more occassions such as my graduation, etc.
*** Did you suffer illness or injury? ***
Fortunatley not too bad although I broke my jaw in 2008 and still get aches from it.
*** What was the best thing you bought? ***
Hmmm...difficult one! I really can't think of anything!
*** Whose behaviour has merited celebration? ***
My dad who lost a massive amount of weight, from about 26stone an XXXL (if not bigger) to about 15 1/2 stone a L. I'm really proud of him.
*** Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed? ***
Hmmm another difficult one, I don't generally get appalled and depressed.
*** Where did most of your money go? ***
Hmm first half of the year = Halls rent and going out, 2nd half of the year = going out and clothes!
*** What did you get really excited about? ***
Graduating it was really exciting after 3 years of hard study!
*** What song(s) will you remember from 2009? ***
Gosh another difficult one...I can't think of any songs to mind!
*** Compared to this time last year are you . . . happier, fitter, or more productive? ***
Well I'm always generally a happy bunny, I'm definitely fitter due to my new gym hobby and more productive probably the same but in a different way, not uni work but work work now!
*** What do you wish you had done more of? ***
Nothing, I don't regret anything, perhaps wrote more dooyoo results and earnt more pennies?
*** What do you wish you had done less of? ***
Nothing as above I don't regret things.
*** What was your favourite TV programme? ***
My favourite programme of 2009 was probably Brothers & Sisters, it was a good distraction from revision at times and always good to duvet up and watch.
*** Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate last year? ***
I'm a lover not a hater :)
*** What's been the best book of 2009? ***
Lol I hate to admit it but I really got into the Twilight series and read all these books so maybe these.
*** What was your greatest musical discovery? ***
Hmmm...I enjoy going to gigs but can't think of a musical discovery as such.
*** What did you want to get in 2009? ***
Nothing, material things don't really bother me that much and in terms of non-material things I guess I had everything I wanted.
*** What did you want and didn't get? ***
*** What is your favourite film of the year? ***
Haha dare I admit it? I really enjoyed Twilight and New Moon, I thought Avatar was really good (I had low expectations of it).
*** What did you do on your birthday and how old were you? ***
I was 21 and I had a big night out with my friends and several family meals. Also my ex took me to a really posh hotel in York with the most amazing shower!
*** What political issue stirred you the most? ***
I'm not really into politics so I don't really have an opinion to voice. How bad is that!?
*** Who was the best person you met? ***
Well I met my boyfriend in 2009, obviously that was a good person to meet. I also met lots of new and amazing friends.
*** Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2009? ***
Live life, love life and always smile. I generally always have a smile on my face, my boyfriend and friends worry if I go quiet for 5minutes because I'm always happy. Also never look back! Lives to short to have regrets, enjoy the present and look forward to the future!
Summary: What a year it was!
