Now I get to retype all this, because LJ ate it.

As previously stated.

1) While not quite where I'd like to be, I'm doing much better than I was this time last year. I find it much easier to say no to frivolous things, though I do sometimes indulge.

2) Moving on...

3 - 6) Win, so much awesometacular win! I am awesome. I have a third of the stuff I had when this year began. It's so much easier to keep everything neat and tidy and organized. My OCD has completely kicked into overdrive because I'm off my meds and now I find myself a lot more strict on putting things away. My closet (#6) is probably the neatest, most organized, most sparse place in the house.

7) Yeeeeah. Not even close. I'm going to add this one to next year's list because I really want to do it. I'm going to allow previously read books, because there's a few I want to reread.

8) This is hit and miss. I go months without pop but then I'll get a taste and drink nothing but pop for a week or a month...until I get a taste for something else and therefore forget about pop. So, I'll sort of half-count it. I do need to drink more water at home/on weekends, too.

9) Ignore this one.

10) Number 10? What's that?

I've been all over the place when it comes to fandom this year. I sort of fell out of DW last year. I lost interest for most of series 3. And no, it wasn't the pairing, because I like Martha quite a lot actually. 10 was annoying me, for one. He got... I understand that he missed Rose, god knows did and I don't even live in the same fictional world, but it just got too angsty for me, especially with dealing with my mom's recent death, at that point. So I sort of gave up, although I watched the Christmas special (the one with Kylie), even though that one wasn't my favorite. When series 4 started, I tried watching, but I gave up after a few episodes. I think I went from episode, like... 5 to JE. And I LOVE Donna. I won't spoil anything (but um, who doesn't know at this point) but I absolutely adore Donna and I have from the very first moment. Catherine Tate is one of my favorites.

It seems like JE more or less tore the fandom apart. Which, understandable. Honestly, I think the ending was a copout, but I also understand RTD's reasoning on why he did it and therefore I'm okay with it. Everyone gets the happy ending, right? Except for the Doctor, but, let's face it. That's just how the Doctor is. If there was no conflict, the show couldn't continue, right?

I had just started a story right before I fell out of the fandom... and it sat there for a bit. I got a surgence of fannishness, added another chapter...and haven't touched it in about a year. The poor readers over on FF.net. But - I've started working on it again. Slowly but surely, right? I'm thinking maybe I want to get back into the fandom, but it'll be baby steps.

So, while I was fandomless, I more or less, in a roundabout way, discovered Death Note. I fell HARD into that fandom. My favorite sorts of movies are the mindfuckery sort and the Death Note manga and anime wrote the BOOK on mindfuckery. So I was hardcore into that fandom for a while, although it's slacked off a bit. It's starting to pick up again. I have another story I want to write. And it's due in six days! D=

I also discovered the HSM (High School Musical) fandom. You shut up. I'm not hardcore into it but I like it. I love cheesy musicals like that, they're cheerful. And speaking of cheesy musicals: Hairspray.

So, all in all, I think I'm pretty well-rounded in my fandomness. I'm more or less finishing the year the same way I started it. Kinda drifting a bit in the sea of fandom but I'm better off in that I'm not just pushing it all away.

2008 sucked. I mean. Seriously, completely, totally sucked (more about that later.) But, 2009 is right around the corner. And it can't get here fast enough.

May: Because I'm nice.

June: Good thing I have arm floaties
