Why the hell did everyone fixate on the tuna burgers yesterday? O_o Still I'm just glad the post got the love it did, being as late as it was. Anyway, I know I'm late to do this, but I didn't want to put anything off and it's better late than never. Everyone else has been talking about how 2011 was for them, I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon and take a dip in the gravy train. Even though I generally try to avoid doing those, gravy is nonetheless delicious.
It's no secret I have a crappy memory so to be perfectly honest I can't remember much of 2011. Some might say this isn't totally a bad thing though. I could probably do with remembering less of my life, it's probably why I do.
I had a lot of moments of weakness in 2011. Such as going back onto World Of Warcraft after five months of not playing it (yes this means that I quit and started again in the same year). Blizzard, the bastards that run Warcraft gave me a free week to enjoy their new patch, but even before then I was tempted. I logged on to discover I had been hacked and lost everything, and in the time between then and finally getting all my stuff back, my friends on there had bought and made me a lot of things. I really had to play, I felt I owed them. I enjoy the people way more than I enjoy the game, and so I count it as both a bad and slightly good part of 2011. I got to meet some old friends, and even make a few new ones. This doesn't mean I have to be happy I did it. Though I am happy I met those friends again.
In what has become a yearly tradition for me since I was 17, I loved and lost again. This time it was a lovely Australian girl (sadly not Mynx as she is married and has kids). After she left me for someone else (again a tradition. I've actually been cheated on and left for someone else by every girl I've ever gone out with. One time a girl left me for my ex. I created lesbians. Thank me later) she actually hit me up again, trying to rekindle our friendship. We were able to talk for a while but I sent her an email she never replied to. Not too long back I sent her another, and I don't know if I'm going to get a reply, or if I should have even bothered sending her something.
I discovered blogging and my actual ability to write things people seem to enjoy. Don't worry I'm not going to self-deprecate again. I'm really not. Blogging this year has been a wonderful experience for me. I've discovered something I'm good at, but most of all, I've discovered you guys. I've gotten to know you, and you've gotten to know me, and you haven't left me like the crying little baby I am.
I discovered MLP. I know you don't really like me bringing it up, and I have brought it up a lot, but it has become a part of my life. I just wish I could actually tell people I know besides Jessie that I like it. I've now found two people who do like it, so I do have someone I can talk to about it. Now I just wish I could safely use a Fluttershy background.
I finally got myself some long term goals. I plan on writing things that are going to take a while to do. I'm not very good with long term goals, with things that could take a while. I prefer things to happen as quickly as possible. I'm not very patient but at the same time, I can be very patient, it just depends on the circumstances.
I got better at cooking and I hope to keep this up and keep getting better. To cook more meals at home and such.
I distanced myself from the people at work. I don't know if this is good or bad really. I wasn't very close to them anyway, but I still feel like I've let them down. Part of me feels like I've let myself down somehow actually. I think I will be going more in the new year, especially when I get my drivers license, but I'm still yet to work out really why.
That's about all I can think of really. I start driving lessons at the end of this month, so you have that long to pray to your impotent God's and decide what things of mine you want, assuming you survive too. Jessie has dibs on my inflatable sheep*
*sadly I do not in fact possess an inflatable sheep and if I did, he would be buried with me
P.S I've used myfreecopyright.com to copyright the place. Thanks to Barb, I saw it on your site and checked it out. Normally I wouldn't really care, and while you are free to use anything I say for yourself (a nice mention would be nice though), if I'm going to be posting an actual story I plan on turning into a book one day, I should probably take this step to try and hope that no one steals it and claims they wrote it. The biggest worry I ever had with writing and putting a proper story up here is that someone would steal it and claim it's theirs.
