AND A BLESSED, JOYFUL, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Yes I realize it's been over a month since I last posted.
Yes, I'm very sorry.
But I was sick, and then I worked a lot, and then it was Christmas and now I'm sick again. I haven't drawn in like two weeks. HORRORS!
Also... like three days after my last post, I lost 5 followers overnight. WAS IT SOMETHING I SAID? LIKE GEEZ.
Anyway, those of you who have been around for a while know that I have a tradition where I do a tag to sum up the year, and yeah...I have to do it. It's Tradition.
So we should get started because A.) I'm ill and I don't know how long I will be able to stay awake, and B.) The tag is really long. :)
1.) What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before?
I literally thought about this for like... two whole minutes, and.... apparently I don't like trying new things, because I couldn't think of anything.
2.) Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make one this year?
Last year I didn't really make one, so no. But yeah, I have a few this year, they're scary and awesome.
3.) Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yeah! My sister Laura had a little boy and his name is Peter! (And my other sister is due in March, and if all goes well I'M GOING TO BE THERE!!!!!!)
4.) Did anyone close to you die?
Well yes and no. One of our older cousins did, but we weren't actually close, so...
5.) What countries/states did you visit?
Oh I travel down to Nevada all the time. (*Cough* the state line is like... ten minutes from where I live though so....) Also it's NevADa, not NevODa.
6.) What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
I have literally wanted to get married and have babies since I was like 13, and I still don't know anyone and this is a sadness to me.
7.) What date from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory?
That glorious day in March when my brother surprised Amy and me with a landy.
8.) Did you move anywhere?
Eh. No. Feel free to tell me I'm boring.
9.) What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I can werk copic markers.
10.) What was your biggest failure?
I still can't park straight.
11.) Did you suffer illness or injury?
Eh. Uh. I mean, yeah, I'm sick right now. OH OH I SLICED THE TOP OF MY THUMB REALLY DEEP WHEN I WAS CLEANING ROSES.
12.) What was the best thing you bought?
I don't buy stuff. (Well actually I do, but I don't buy exciting stuff.) ART SUPPLIES??
13.) Whose behavior merited celebration?
Ehm. Prolly Chloe, because that little girl is just the sweetest.
14.) Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
There was one person who made my best friend cry and I almost tracked her down and brained her.
15.) Where did most of your money go?
Rent and food and movie tickets.
16.) What did you get really, really, really excited about?
I DON' KNOW, OMG THIS POST IS GONNA BE SO BORING.
17.) What was the best concert you’ve been to this year?
Does Mary Poppins count as a concert? Because that was stellar.
18.) What song/album will always remind you of 2015?
Prolly Stages, Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Finding Neverland, and Il Volo's Grande Amore International Version. Because basically, JOSH, and of course, I finally was able to listen to those two musicals, and I love them, and of course, Il Volo's voices blend like coffee and it's just SO GOOD.
Though in retrospect, I should probably add Phantom to the list because everyone knows this is the year I was obsessed.
19.) Compared to this time last year, are you:
Happier, which is good, because last year I was sad.
20.) What do you wish you’d done more of?
I dunno. Trusting God?
21.) What do you wish you’d done less of?
Stressing out. If I were that coral that dies of stress, I would be dead.
22.) What was your greatest musical discovery?
Gentleman's Guide, because hysterical.
23.) How did you spend Christmas?
I can honestly say, we haven't had such a perfect, flawless, beautiful Christmas in a while. It was amazing! Everyone who was close enough came for Christmas morning, we had five people to one bed (Which was awesome because it's a big bed, we're small people, and it was FREEZING after Midnight Mass.) And Christmas morning was a beautiful state of organized chaos with hot Italian sausage on sweet buns and we did all our Traditional Christmas things like lighting the Christ Candle and singing Joy to the World and opening the stockings and just... delighted screams and happiness everywhere and just... so many blessings. lol. We had extra people over for dinner (gnocchi and ham, because ITALIAN) and a giant snowball fight with everyone who was under 40. But the snow didn't pack well so when the boys teamed up against the girls, everyone disappeared behind a delicious white cloud of snow.
24.) How are you spending New Year’s?
Well tonight I'm going to attempt to stay up til Midnight and toast in the new year, and tomorrow there's a shindig at Homebase and we're going to have bon y caulda, because yes.
25.) Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?
26.) What was the best book you read?
Lockwood and Co, hands down.
27.) Did you fall in love in 2015?
*Squints at you*
28.) What was your favorite TV show?
Er. Don't make me answer that.
29.) Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
Eh. No I'm geoood.
30.) What did you want and get?
So many copic markers.
31.) What did you want and not get?
I don't really want stuff.
32.) What were your favorite films of this year?
1.) Age of Ultron
2.) Scorch Trials
3.) Ant Man
4.) Kingsmen. (Which apart of the casual way they drop the f bomb every minute, and the one totally random bed scene at the end, was quite good.)
33.) What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
On my birthday... my bestest cousin came up, and we went shopping and did fun things together and met up with mah pal Sammi, and then we ate food, and I got pressies. *blink blink* I turned 20. SOON I SHALL BE 21.
34.) How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2015?
I was literally a cross of "How much can I dress like Penelope?" and "What do I have in my closet that is the most comfortable?"
35.) What kept you sane?
My family, my faith, and my fandoms.
36.) Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
EVERYONE KNOWS THIS PERSON. EVEN PEOPLE I DON'T REALLY KNOW, KNOW THAT I LOVE HIM.
But then again, Gianluca is pretty special, and his voice makes me melt. And I kind of hate him for it.
37.) What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Eh, I'm pretty content. But I would like a different flat/apartment soon.
38.) What political issue stirred you the most?
The Supreme Court made a really dumb decision in June and it really ticked me off.

I love you all!
