I seriously can't believe this year is almost over. Actually, I'm kind bummed because this year I'm not really interested in New Years. I mean, yes, it's a huge thing and everything, and this year has honestly been really crappy for me; but all I can think about now is OMFGWTFBBQ TWO DAYS UNTIL THE TEST RESULTS TT-TT. Maybe I should just calm down about it and wait for the best UXD.

Yesterday I was supposed to go to the Ceija Institute with Montes to ask if I can still take Japanese classes there, but that plan kinda died ^^U. Instead, Tsory-chama came to my house in the afternoon. She showed me this Avatar parody (NSFW, by the way), and I was quite relieved to learn she hated it just as much as me :D (because, really, it sucked). We were talking about doing some cosplay during summer, and she told me the PkmnDaisuki forums were searching for people for their Trainer Cosplay Team. She called the team leader and officially introduced me as their new Kotone/Lyra. I had been dying to cosplay as her since Otakuton last month, and she even got me included in her team ♥ I was ecstatic~ We're going to figure out what we'll need on Sunday so I don't have to stay all day talking about the test results __U.

Finally, as always...
1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
I survived an earthquake! *shot*. Nah, seriously. I think the most important one is that I learnt to stand up for myself this year. Be it against my "friends" at school or even against my Mum & Dad (and I'm having a big discussion over my future career here), this year I finally got it through my head that I'm not going to live life to the fullest if I don't start living for myself. And that's something I really needed to start with. Also, I dated for the first time ever this year. And it helped me realize that really need to know people better before something like that UXD (watch me fall in love at first sight next year and forget all about this XD).

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Looking at them right now... I didn't get to cosplay or finish writing anything __U. But I did lose more weight, I'm still crazy about Hetalia; I didn't study that hard for the PSU, but I'm pretty confident about it anyway. And becoming more open to people... I can't say I did it, but I would have deeply regretted it if I had. Then I did, with other people, and it all turned out all right. Overall, I'd say I got them alright =).
For next year~:
01.- I'll get used to University
02.- Scratch that one, I'll get into something I really like and have decided for myself
03.- I'll finish writing something this time!
04.- I'll win a Karaoke contest in a Con
05.- I'll make some valuable new friends at Uni
06.- And I'll keep the ones I met at school!
07.- I won't get fat
08.- I'll become happy with who I am.
I think that's it.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?


4. Did anyone close to you die?
Thankfully, not

5. What countries did you visit?

Well... none this year ^^U

6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?

Someone by my side when things get tough, more money UXD, a trip somewhere (especially to Spain with my Chilean History teacher! I couldn't go this year, but he said I might go next one =D).

7. What date from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
February 27th. That earthquake really had my world upside down the whole year. Also, all of the World Cup, especially Chile's matches! And November 28th, my graduation day :)

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I got the highest average of my class :D (not my school, so I didn't get the scholarship, but oh well). And I finally decided what I really want to study and why, which is even more important to me ^^. Ah! Also, I learnt how to work in teams thanks to the Biology IB.

9. What was your biggest failure?

I let myself be deceived by people close to me again, but I grew up quite a bit because of it (<- yes, I always have to see a positive side to things UXD).

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
I had a cold around mid-year, and I threw my soul up the day before the 4th Medios Lunch (for the second year in a row __U) and almost couldn't attend (again XD). Luckily, I'm pretty resistant to injuries and illnesses.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
My Hetalia plushies and my LJ paid account :D

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Marti's, Rebe's and Montes'. They were friends I wasn't really close to, but who were really supportive of me (even without knowing!), and who were always by my side when things went wrong. Also, they supported and understood my decisions, and are overall really nice people to be around. I'll make sure we keep contact this year, because I really love them all ♥.
Also, my Mum. Because she's been the only person in my family who has supported me no matter what (even if now she won't get her cruise through the world UXD).

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Haha, I've been waiting all year to answer this question UXD.
There are two specific episodes that really got to me this year. First one was around June-July. My English teacher wanted me to go to the English Writing ABSCH to represent our school, so I missed classes on a Friday. Turns out that Friday our Chilean History teacher said we'd have a test on a Wednesday two weeks later. Half of my class, the half I considered my friends actually, decided that it was too difficult to study for them, and so the best way to get a high mark would be not to tell me about it: that way, I failed, and our teacher had to lower the scores. Come the day of the test, someone from the other half of the class told me about this plan, with five class hours left to the test. I talked to my teacher about it, and he confirmed that the test was that day, and that he had said it the day I was away. I studied like crazy the rest of the day, but I ended up crying every time I glanced at my copybook __U. Turns out I wasn't upset because I was going to fail, but because my friends hadn't minded being that bad with me if it got them higher scores. At least the ones closer to me hadn't been in that, but they didn't tell them anything too and they were in the same position as me. But my Homeroom/Chemistry teacher caught wind of all this and talked it over with me, and then he told our History Teacher. After talking with me, he went in and said we could have our copybooks while doing the test, to give me the chance of doing my best in it. I was really moved by that, and I admired and respected him even more after that ♥ Funny thing is... I got a full score even after all that, and all the ones involved failed the test even with their copybook open ^^U.
Second one was actually a big issue ..U. The last week before our September vacations we had to do a Chilean History project, in which we had to go around town taking photos of historical places. We were given a month to finish it, so I pressured my team, consisting of my best friend and two friends I got closer with over this, to start it as soon as possible. Obviously, we had only a week left and we hadn't even started. Problem was, we had 3 other projects for three different classes too. But every time I approached them about it, they were all "But we're so busy with cram school and you don't do anything", as in "do it yourself, bitch =D". So I spoke with our teacher (god, I was really a pest for him all this year, wasn't I? I'm really sorry about it *bows*) and told him, under those circumstances, I'd prefer to do it on my own. Turns out that when I told my best friend about it she got all mad at me, saying I was a traitor who'd left them alone and dumped the whole work on them. And then she'd confront me about not speaking with her, but every time I tried she went away crying __U. After they got scolded ON ALL FOUR PROJECTS for dumping them on me, she sent me an e-mail (because [livejournal.com profile] loki_xd said so) asking me to forgive her (because it may be childish, but I'm still really pissed off about this). It said she was sorry, but that she'd done it because I wasn't spending that much time with her, but she thought actually talking to me about it might be a bother to me, so she decided to dump everything on me instead. Because, obviously, that wouldn't be a bother to me at all. Not like I was for weeks at the edge of a panic attack and fainting around about it. And of course, because I was using my time to, say, study for the PSU exam, the same excuse she gave me to not work in the first place __U. I don't know how I do it to always end in the same situations ¬¬.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Surprisingly, I saved it =D. The bit I spent went out to Starbucks, though XD

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
THE WORLD CUP!!! Also, this being my last year of school, the IB's and the PSU finally being over~

16. What song will always remind you of 2010?

I think anything Gaga or Glee related. Also, S/mileage

17. Compared to this time last year, are you happier or sadder?
I'd say happier, but in a hidden way (that made no sense at all ^^U).

ii. thinner or fatter?
A little thinner~

iii. richer or poorer?

Definitely richer :D

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Dancing. For real.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Studying, spending too much time on the internet.

20. How will you spend Christmas?
Spent it at my Mum's house with her and my brother. We just had a family dinner and opened our presents.

21. What was the best day in 2010?
I'd go with with December 4th, the Otakuton =D.

22. Did you fall in love in 2010?

This is going to be kinda mean, but not really. I did date someone, but I realized I definitely wasn't in love with him.

23. How many one night stands?
I've never had one (and hope to never do~)

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Hetalia: World Series and Dr. House ♥

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I've never hated anyone, per se. I either mildly dislike them or ignore them completely. Hate is too strong an emotion to waste on people I don't like D:

26. What was the best book you read?
The Lost Symbol, definitely.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?

SKE48? Anything Macross related? I haven't really made a BIG musical discovery this year)=

28. What did you want and get?

A new mobile phone, good scores.

29. What did you want and not get?

More support, a laptop =P

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
Hmm... Toy Story 3. I think this year was especially bad for movies ..U

31. What did you do on your birthday?

I had a quiet dinner with my Mum and brother (is this a recurring theme? UXD). The next day I went to Starbucks with my friends~

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Not any earthquakes, thank you very much.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010?

Non-existent, again. But that's going to change next year!

34. What kept you sane?
Internet. My online friends. Hetalia. Yamapi. For real =D

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

I don't really "fancy" celebrities. I'd say... Hugh Laurie and Yamashita Tomohisa would be the closer ones to this.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
I was pretty involved with politics this year~! *ish proud* But still, probably the aftermath of the presidential elections. Or the miner's rescue *shot*.

37. Whom did you miss?
My f-list the months I spent on hiatus D=. Also, my two best friends who changed classes, got girlfriends and promptly disapeared off the face of earth __U.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
I didn't meet them this year, actually. But I'd have to say both Rebe and Marti. They turned out to be really wonderful girls and I really loo~ve them ♥

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010.
You have to stand up for what you believe in; and you have to do it yourself, because no one will do it for you.

40. BONUS YUPPIE QUESTION What were your best meals of the year?
The two times I went to La Pizza Nostra this year, and the food at the 4th Medios lunch (the one at the graduation party was crap x.x)

41. Other new question: What are you looking forward to in 2011?
2010 being over *shot*. Actually, entering University and all the changes that will bring.
