Meme ganked from Fancy on FA.

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Got a ticket. D8 I've never been ticketed before. IT SUCKS. Fortunately it isn't a moving violation so it could be worse.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I didn't make any last time around, actually.

3. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
I think Mechanical Hyena and Torakhan told me they were kidnapping me unless I was in Canada, but I've since forgotten what they said was happening then so...I dunno.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes. My kitties Sam and Shadow both passed.

5. What countries did you visit?
Canada. This is normal for me. Hell, once in a while I say something more "there" than "here" and then declare "OOPS, my Canadian is showing." The word "eh" is still part of my active vocabulary.

6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
I...don't know. I'd have to give it way more thought than I'm currently willing to devote to this meme.

7. What date from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
None. I'm terrible at remembering specific dates. I do better at remembering actual events, not when they happened.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
GROOMING ACADEMY!!!! I am now a professional petstylist, aka GROOMER. I am a dog groomer and proud of it!!!

9. What was your biggest failure?
No big ones, just a whole seething slew of minor ones.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Yes. Lots of minor shit. Hurt my back a couple of times, my left shoulder STILL flares up now and again. Crap like that. Also I've had several colds and things.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Well...since there WAS an adoption fee, I guess it counts as "buying" so...Ember. :D She's already meshed into my life so well I can't imagine not having her here. Like the famous saying goes (or rather, is paraphrased) whoever says you can't buy love forgot about little short-legged kitties. <3!!!!

12. Where did most of your money go?
RENT, UTILITIES, MY CAR, MY PETS. Where the fuck ELSE would it go?! D:

13. What song will always remind you of 2010?
Uhhhh, none? I don't listen to much new music so I dunno?

14. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Oh god, so many things. More art, more traveling, more furry conventions, oh gods, so many things that got put off or cancelled or just plain didn't get done.

15. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Grieving, procrastinating, self-doubting.

16. What was your favorite TV program?
I've been mainlining Deadwood (entire series) and Bones (season 5). Neither is particularly new but I'm seeing them for the first time so nyah. ;)

17. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Hate is too strong a word. I don't feel enough to classify it as hate.

18. What was the best book you read?
The Cat Who'll Live Forever, by Peter Gethers.

19. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Uhhhhnone? Wasn't this already asked above somewhere?

20. What was your favorite film of this year?
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. So much crazy love for that film!!!! SRSLY, GO WATCH IT.

21. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Uhh well I think I had to work, and then Torakhan and I ate food and it was kindof awesome except my dad forgot. :P I was...late twenties? Shit I forget how old I am. I think I'll be 29 or 30 next May so...uhh, 28 or 29? IF EVER THERE WAS PROOF I HAVE A DISABILITY WHERE NUMBERS ARE CONCERNED, HERE IT FUCKING IS. :P

22. What kept you sane?
My pets. :) They also drive me crazy so it's like a nice little closed-circuit cycle. ;)

23. Who did you miss?
A lot of folk. :(

24. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010:
Acceptance. Accept the way things are and instead of pining for how they should have been, work to change it in ways you can and accept what you cannot fix. Accept yourself and accept that things don't have to stay the same if the situation isn't healthy or productive. Have the guts to take care of yourself first...you can't save people if you aren't willing to save yourself or, gods willing, let anyone else try to help.
