Well, only a couple of weeks late, here's 2011 in review (the meme).

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?
Go to Anime Boston. Go to Animaine. Went to Cony Island. Visited my company's corporate offices. Became an official Frequent Flier.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
My New Year's resolutions for last year weren't very firm. I think the only one was to 'stay out of the drama', which...met with mixed results.
I actually do have some resolutions for the coming year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My step-sister Jenn had her baby, Estelle! Or as they call her, Stella Moonpie. :)

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Hmm. Not that I can think of?

5. What countries did you visit?
Mexico! Turns out, I don't deal well with the heat! Still, it was fun.

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
A better sense of equilibrium.

7. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
At one point I had written “July...” here, but I didn't write the exact date and now I can't remember what happened in July that was supposed to remain etched on my memory. Which probably indicates that it won't stay etched upon my memory. *shrugs*

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Helping my company get off sanctions! Although making my outfit for A Steampunk Affair deserves an honorable mention.

9. What was your biggest failure?
You know, I'm actually not sure.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
I got food poisoning while in Mexico. :( Otherwise just the usual random scattering of colds, etc.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Does a gym membership count? This was not a year of big purchases for me. Oh, and also about a thousand Jamba Juice smoothies, because those things are delicious.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
All of my friends, as usual.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Oh man, this was the year that we got (peripherally) involved in makeup blog world drama! Talk about appalled and depressed...also, some people at my company, including several consultants.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Makeup, travel-related expenses, and my student loans.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Oh, a lot of things! Work stuff, AB (until I got sick), PCM (even though I got sick), Maine Boffer Games (at which I didn't get sick, finally!), A Steampunk Affair, MLP:FIM, and the list goes on.

16. What song will always remind you of 2011?
Party with Pinkie?

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder?
About the same
ii. thinner or fatter? Slightly thinner, I think
iii. richer or poorer? Slightly richer (yay savings account)

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Read really good books (I did some of this, but I'd love to do more). Go to the gym (best stress relief ever).

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Re-read things.

20. How did you spend Christmas?
I went up to the DFC as usual and spent some time with Mom and Eric.

22. Did you fall in love in 2011?

23. How many one-night stands?

24. What was your favorite TV program?
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
No, although my annoyance level may have grown.

26. What was the best book you read?
Oh gosh, I really don't know.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
I got more into electronica this year, although I don't know if I'd call that a 'discovery'. Maybe Mumford and Sons?

28. What did you want and get?
Too many things to list.

29. What did you want and not get?
To feel 100% like a 'real adult'.

Hmm. The first one that comes to mind is Hanna, but I'd have to think about it some more.

I was 26! On my actual birthday I just worked, but I had various celebratory activities throughout the week with friends.

Internet at my apartment.

'Whatever I Can Pack In a Carry-On'

My friends, and my iPod and Kindle.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
I don't do the 'schoolgirl crush' thing.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?

37. Who did you miss?
I didn't see my sister much this year, which was too bad. Also, my 'gate friends (although I got to see Kris!)

38. Who was the best new person you met?
All the people in my company's Oakland office. Also, Liz and Stacy, who I think I had met but hadn't really gotten to know before.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011.
If you don't like heat and humidity, don't go to Cabo in September. Trufax.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
I think I've used this one before, but it still applies.
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough, you'll end up where you were.

'Third Planet', Modest Mouse
