[eta: i've just gone over my "year in review" for the past... 4 years. dude. i'm ridiculously happier than i was in 05 and ever since. i'm actually a helluva lot more settled in myself. so. yeah. i thought i should get that out in the air before i let the rest of this go.]

year in review meme, the first. )

the second: as follows )

so. yes. memes. will maybe actually review my year in reality and say more, but mostly... eh. i'm ok. i'm happier now at the end of the year than i was at the beginning, and that's despite the shite that happened midyear.

i'm not calling this year a wash. because it wasn't. not really. i did some great things, got great news... and basically whiled away my time.

like, ok. i spent most of this year just... reading. nothing important. just... short stories. watching old tv shows that i haven't watched in a long while. and outside of that, i spent a lot of time writing. nothing's gotten done, per se. just... writing. like this whole semester was poetry, which i haven't written in ages and ages.

and that's another thing. i got back into school this fall. which was great news. except how it wasn't because it took up a bunch of my time. *is* taking up a bunch of my time, i mean. i got promoted, passed an important test... still haven't heard back about becoming an air traffic controller... i whined a lot about health issues and not having a car. got a car, gas prices went down.... so i had really good news.

and the best news was finding out that montpellier's basically in the bag. and that i get to go to poland for the international convention. i'm conflicted cause it's in the same month. but still. *wants both*

and i had the worst news too. the break-up that wasn't. which still bothers me because i thought it was something real and special and it's far from that. and when he said he wanted to be friends, i was good with that. but then he stopped talking to me at all. and i can't keep being the one initiating contact cause that makes me look desperate. i'm not. i just miss having a friend and wish i'd kept my mouth shut.

i don't know about this year. it's been ugly, except when it was beautiful. i miss having the stability i didn't have this year. it's just been... strange.

i'm hoping next year is better. it'd be killer to actually have money to spend, time away. good friends. to actually grow up for once and not have the world on my shoulders.

through the darkness and the shadows, the nightmare of today )
wellownedbkup: (nix cold)
yesterday was crazy. i did nothing. well, i drove out to my cousin's, picked her up, went to the mall, it was closing up, went to best buy and gawked at electronics for half an hour, and then spent two hours chitchatting in mcdonalds over a double cheeseburger and a side salad.

before that, went ice skating on friday and to see memoirs of a geisha on saturday. not boring a weekend, but kinda slow.

school today. i have three classes over the course of 9 hours. this should be fun. will see lacey around lunchtime. hmmm...
