Happy New Year!

Found this in my past posts:
What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before? Began to seriously think about selling my art and sold some of it
Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I don’t make resolutions, though I am planning on changing a few things in my life this year (we’ll see if they stick until 12/31/09
Did anyone close to you give birth? No
Did anyone close to you die? No
What countries did you visit? US of A
What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008? A full-time job and a steady income where I didn’t have to worry about if I’ll have enough money for bills
What date from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? May 1st, that’s what Kevin and I decided is our anniversary for dating
What was your biggest achievement of the year? Somehow having money and getting by even though I was basically unemployed for 5 months
What was your biggest failure? Can’t think of one
Did you suffer illness or injury? No, but I’m sure I messed up my knee a few weeks ago when I walked into my radiator (that’s what happens when you have a small amount of room around your couch next to your radiator), I realized it was really bothered yesterday when I was standing for 4 hours.
What was the best thing you bought? All the Hotwheels and Matchbox cars this year, I’m loving being able to collect the cars I think are sweet, but aren’t thousands of dollars.
Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? My parents. Just little things that they do without even realizing it.
Where did most of your money go? Food, health insurance, credit card (all the usual things)
What did you get really, really, really excited about? Any time I got to spend with Kevin
What song will always remind you of 2008? Nothing really comes to mind
Compared to this time last year, are you:
I. happier or sadder? Happier
II. thinner or fatter? Fatter, I’ve developed a stomach, which I’m hoping to get rid of this year
III. richer or poorer? Most likely poorer
What do you wish you'd done more of? Work, only because that gives me more money to pay off things
Did you fall in love in 2008? No, but still in love from 2007
How many one-night stands? None
What was your favorite TV program? A new one from this year would have to be Flashpoint, continuing one would be Supernatural
Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year? Not that I’m aware of
Do I like anyone now that you didn't like this time last year? Probably, but no one comes to mind
What was the best book you read? I don’t remember reading a whole book this year (that’s pretty sad, seeing as I had all that time when I had no job)
What was your greatest musical discovery? Nickelback, but pretty sure I discovered them before this year
What did you want and get? Die Hard 4, new toaster oven, new coat
What was your favorite film of this year? I haven’t gone to a movie since last Christmas
What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? Nothing out of the ordinary, 25
What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Getting a full time job
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2008? Same as before. jeans and a T-shirt. Whatever's comfortable. I really love summer where I can wear my favorite outfit: jeans, tank top, barefoot.
What kept you sane? Music and Kevin and Loretta
Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? None
What political issue stirred you the most? The election, just cause I’m not happy with the results
Who did you miss? No one
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008: Have fun in life. Plan ahead. Don’t take anything for granted.
