1. What did you do in 2007 that you'd never done before?
Go to college...actually start to believe that I can be a writer.

2. Did you keep your New Years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I think my resolution was something like "Stop making promises to yourself if you're not going to keep them" or something.....FAIL. Next year I think it will be something along the lines of "Live more you bloody Trekkie."

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Not anyone who told me.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No.

5. What countries did you visit?
None.

6. What would you like to have in 2008 that you lacked in 2007?
Adventure

7. What date from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
November 18--the day I almost died.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Getting two A's and two B's after missing most of the last four weeks of school before finals.

9. What was your biggest failure?
Research paper. That was dismal.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Yes. And I have two of the most epic scars to show for it that sadly reside in a place that I prefer not to show off.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Metamorphose Lucky Pack--hands down.

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
My mom--she's just all-around AMAZING. And Alex Jentsch because he really made a horrible graduation day turn into the most awesome graduation night.

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
My brother, select friends.

14. Where did most of your money go?
GAS.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Seeing Trans-Siberian Orchestra again after missing them last year.

16. What song will always remind you of 2007?
"Famous Last Words" - My Chemical Romance

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
happier or sadder? Happier
thinner or fatter? Thinner
richer or poorer? Richer, surprisingly

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Gone out of the house and lived.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Sit on my butt and watch Star Trek/surf the 'net.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
Already happened. Woke up late (weirdly) and opened presents. Put on pretty lolita clothes, listened to mom and brother argue, go to late lunch at family friend's and sat at the kiddie table listening to two Narutards get really obvious stuff about the series completely WRONG. Go home and chill.

21. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
With my Ben.

22. Did you fall in love in 2007?
Ah, love. A sad excuse for a girl to feel as if she is inferior unless she is with some guy. No....I did not.

23. How many one-night stands?
None.

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Star Trek: Voyager

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Uh....I think so? I'm not sure if hate is the right word. Greatly dislike, is more like it.

26. What was the best book you read?
His Dark Materials. Yeah it was a reread, but it was a reread of epic proportions.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Alternative versions of O Fortuna.

28. What did you want and get?
LAVENDER THUMBELINA SKIRT FROM META!!!!

29. What did you want and not get?
Rockinghorse shoes.....

30. What was your favourite film of this year?
Sweeney Todd.

18.I had one of my parties.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
If dad had been there at graduation.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007?
Bag lady chic in combination with omg-rufflebutt lolita to create the most perfect vision of not-quite antiquated-but-vintage look.

34. What kept you sane?
Having the house alone every once and a while so I can dance around like an idiot with the music on high.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
Hmmm....Elvis.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Gay marriage. Regardless of whether you agree with it or not, we should all be free to marry the man or woman we love. Arguing over the "sanctity" of it is irrelevant because we are a democracy (supposedly), not a theocracy.

37. Who did you miss?
BEN!!!!

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Tie between Trey and Sarah. They each have their own strong points.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2007:
Even though I a the lamest of lame on the planet, there is some poor girl out there who thinks I am the coolest person she has ever met. I lie not.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.

I'm not here
I am a question to the world,
Not an answer to be heard.
All a moment that's held in your arms.
And what do you think you'd ever say?
I won't listen anyway…
You don't know me,
And I’ll never be what you want me to be.

And what do you think you'd understand?
I'm a boy, no, I'm a man..
You can take me and throw me away.
And how can you learn what's never shown?
Yeah, you stand here on your own.
They don't know me 'cause I'm not here.

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don't feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones that stay the same.
The don’t know me,
'Cause I’m not here.

And you see the things they never see
All you wanted, I could be
Now you know me, and I'm not afraid
And I wanna tell you who I am
Can you help me be a man?
They can't break me
As long as I know who I am

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don't feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones that stay the same.
They can’t see me,
But I’m still here.

They can’t tell me who to be,
‘Cause I’m not what they see.
And the world is still sleepin’,
While I keep on dreamin’ for me.
And their words are just whispers
And lies that I’ll never believe.

And I want a moment to be real,
Wanna touch things I don't feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can they say I never change
They’re the ones that stay the same.
I’m the one now,
‘Cause I’m still here.

I’m the one,
‘Cause I’m still here.
I’m still here.
I’m still here.
I’m still here.
