37. Who was the best new person you met?
My girls from France - toodelicious, 1nagromniloc and ckll :D

38. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010:
Just do what you want to do. Don't listen if someone tries to talk you out of something you really want to do - and don't care if people look weird at you. You're simply amazing to look at, that must be it. ;)

39. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
"There ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
Ain't nothing in this world for free
No I can't slow down
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
No there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until you close our eyes for good"


- Cage The Elephant "Ain't no rest for the wicked"

Meaning, that I thought the year was over in an instant and I feel like I did nothing else but go to work and didn't find so much time for just myself. But also kind of in a good way. It's been a good year, can't complain.


Second is from traumlogik 

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2010 (not including memes of course). Post the first line/sentence of it in your journal, and that's your "Year in Review".


January - So, 2010 then, huh? I hope it's gonna be better than 2009.

February - ... the destiny of a great drama series rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name is Colin Morgan. [Just because I love this (LOL) and to understand, the subject line actually started this sentence, "In a land of fandom and a time of blogging..." *g*]

March - So, Flash Forward starts tonight on German tv and I'm watching it right now.

April - Seriously. I don't like it.

May - It simply has to be Ashton Holmes this week! He left such a huge mark on me.

June - Again, wow to myself.

July - Finished "Bones to Ashes" by Kathy Reichs last night, and it really was very good!

August - Went to the cinema today and watched "Hachiko" and omg, I was strong and held myself back in public, but if I had watched that at home, I would've cried my eyes out!

September - I should be writing LAS fics (due tomorrow :P), but... in a minute.

October - I might dislike working at the shopping mall from now on.

November - It is done! I registered for NaNoWriMo!

December - Happy b-day to henchxnarf aka xlionxlambx!!!! I hope you're having a great day! :D


Oh I liked especially the second! Must tag properly so I'll find it for next year again! :D
