Happy New Year!

Went out with coworkers last night. Drank too much. Had to take a taxi back to the bar this morning to get my car. A little hungover.

By far the scariest moment of my day was listening to the cab driver talk about all the times he's driven drunk. Ummmm.....

On that FUN note, I hope everyone has a memorable and SAFE 2009!

What did you do in 2008 that you’d never done before?
Ran a 5K and a Triathlon!

Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't think I had any last year. I already made mine for this year.

What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008?
A dog and more money in savings (I think those are contradictory).

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Surviving a long distance relationship for 9+ months, losing 12 lbs, finishing my first triathlon.

What was your biggest failure?
Eating junk food, complaining too much.

What was the best thing you bought?
My bike, Reagan!

Where did most of your money go?
Rent and food.

What song will always remind you of 2008?
"So What" by Pink and "Shake It" by Metro Station

Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder?
Happier... I had just gone through a really bad breakup and I was living in Nowhere, Wisconsin.
b) thinner or fatter? Thinner, but I don't know how much.
c) richer or poorer? Poorer... I don't make enough money to live on, so I had to dip into savings.

What do you wish you’d done more of?
Going out with friends, Biking.

How did you spend the holidays?
Working.

Did you fall in love in 2008?
Yes.

What was your favorite TV program?
The Office.

What was your favorite film of this year?
Sex and the City.

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Ryan was here. We went to the bar with some coworkers. I was 23.

What kept you sane?
More like "who"... my mom and Ryan, who listen to me whine.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008.
All you really need to be a triathlete is willpower.

I never make resolution at all. By the third week of January, it's history. I just run. Period.

Love your Qs and As!

Happy New Year and keep it going!
