happy new year Q&A

i did this last year (read 2008s) and i think it’ll be fun to do it again i posted this early because…! well im bored!~ if anything happens between now and new years day i’ll be sure to update it

1. Where were you when 2009 began?
I don’t remember, I assumed at home writing 2008’s Q&A or maybe at a party..

2. What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before?

yes! i finally drank so much i threw up lol.. not really a good thing but still a new thing! Oh and I got to hold a real live alligator!

3. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Again I can’t remember, but for next year my only resolution would be to live happier, and that’s every single day, not the beginning of a new year, oh and maybe exercise more! but we all know that ain’t happenin’ !

4. Go to any concerts this year?

NOO ididn’t! but I’m going to see Utada Hikaru (UTADA) in seattle on Jan 21st (excited)

there were chances to see DRAGONETTE, ARCTIC MONKEY, FRANZ FERDINAND, ERIC HUTCHINSON, PRETTY RECKLESS, and METRIC, i didn’t go to any of these, sigh =_=

need to find friends that want to go to these things, or just go by myself..

5. Will you be looking for a new job in 2009?

Well I’ve been job hunting so fingers crossed for this amazing upcoming opportunity

6. Did you drink a lot of alcohol in 2009?

Yah, here are some evidence / Jan 4th / Nov 8th

7. Did you go on any vacations? If so, where?
Nope, nada, my mom went away for 3 months to china so that felt like a vacation, lol jkjk!

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

I can’t think of anything that resulted in anything physical, like an award or something. but im happy that i am able to talk myself out of stuff, and believe in a better tomorrow (that was so cheeesssy =_= sorry)

9. If you could go back in time to any moment of 2008 and change something, what would it be?
Um, i really can’t think of anything! i guess it would be not to have messed up so much with that TA that i liked! I dont know if it was me or him! it could have been him! but it also might have been me! ohhh the hardships when you totally dont know the other person at ALL LOL! yeah i dont know why i care so much, probably because i thought he was the coolest dork in the world.
like the type of person that you can go to wal-mart with and help contribute to websites like peopleofwalmart.com
10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

nothing in particular, got sick a couple of times during flu season the non H1N1 kind..oh and drank so many kinds of cough syrup

11. What was the best thing you bought?
It would have to be -hands down- my leather jacket from ZARA! man i love it so much, i wish everyday was a crisp fall day or early spring day so i could wear it. it’s really not enough for winter time. i pair it with everything, casual wear, or something girly or when i try to hide in rock star mode~~ I LOVE IT! BEST PURCHASE (also the most expensive one this year other than my ipod)

and these Nikes :D I dont wear these nearly as much as the jacket but i can’t pass these up, i just can’t!

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

All my friends! everyone is much nicer than i think they are, i am just paranoid! especially everyone that reads my blogs ^_^ it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling on the insides, not much different than after watching a heart warming film like Bambi….! LOL

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
i guess just those people that keep disappointing you again and again, because they were ONCE nice to you, you tend to give them second chances, but these second chances are not deserved.

14. Where did most of your money go?

CLOTHES! of course..and FOOD!

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

16. What song will always remind you of 2009?

for some reason, this song will always stick by me: LISZTOMANIA by PHOENIX

17. Compared to this time last year, are you happier or sadder?
HAPPIER for sure, i found the elixir of life! VODKA just kidding, the elixir of life is just enjoying every minute that you have left on earth. it may seem semi un-realistic. But man, so tired of putting up with shit, if you are at a boring party just leave, and deal with the consequences NEVER! i dont make a responsible adult..no i dont..

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?
study more so i didnt fail 2 courses last term lol..

Procrastination (same as 2008)

HOUSE! + THE BIG BANG THEORY + and recently discovered GLEE

I can’t help myself
I’m addicted to a life of material

I’m obsessively opposed to the typical

All we care about is
Runway models, cadillacs and liquor bottles
Give me something, i wanna be
Retro glamour, hollywood, yes we live for the

Fame, doin’ it for the fame
’cause we wanna live the life
Of the rich and famous
Fame, doin’ it for the fame
’cause we gotta taste for champagne
And endless fortune

    LUCKY! One of my friends is seeing her in concert too … so jealous!

    and recently discovered GLEE
    Glee makes me so happy… except for the whole deal with Will & his wife (the second to last episode was so intense, gotdamn). You should try Community! It is so lulzy.

    Hope you enjoyed your Christmas. :3

  2. The best things about the end of the year are the lists! There’s always some great reflections…

    like how amazing Glee is :)

    and how much you’ve changed, and for the better!

  3. Oh yes! Dragonette! And Franz Ferdinand! Loveee em’
    But whyyy didn’t you go to their concerts? D: That would’ve been AMAZING

    And those Nike’s. *___* Those are the limited edition ones right?
    You have the best stuff

  4. Oh! I remmeber doing this before, I’m goign to steal the idea from you to redo it :P number 29 I can relate to… I wanted to find oen too but I just couldn’t be bothered because it takes so much effort. Ahhh, this is why i will never, ever find a boyfriend because like everything else in life I am just to lazy to actively seek!

  5. Ihh hehe, long post! I think I did this one year too – but yeah I can never remember my new years resolutions either! Annoying! But mm I think I achieved most of them this year. I see some Swedish vodka there, maybe that is the problem to drinking a tad bit too much ey? ;-)

  6. Congrats on having such an awesome and meaning 2009! It’s cool that you got to hold a live alligator! Plus I remember that blog entry you made about the leather jacket, I remember you being really ecstatic about it heehee.

    I love Nike! Those shoes are awesome!

    Hope you’ll have another rocking year in 2010! ;)

  7. Happy New Year Emma!!!!!
    Your leather jacket is incredibly. I’m stilllll looking for a good one…I dunno why it’s been so hard for me to just buy one..
    And, im jealous. I want to hug an alligator…lucky.

  8. LOL. I drank so much I threw up for the first time in 2009 too! High five! xP
    OMG you’re seeing Utada this year?!!!
