Start of 2016

2016 kind of recently started and as I was browsing my old deviantart blog, reminiscent of the past, I found an old meme. I thought it was interesting enough and updated it for 2015 :) So, if you're also interested in writing something about the last year without knowing where to start off - try it out yourself. Oh and I need to harass Kay into doing this too >D

1. What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
I painted a fucking kimono with color gradients and shit. Also I made a gravity defying wig with glue and such. Never did that before ^^"

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I kind of kept a lot of them, for most of the time. But at the end of the year I became sloppy and kind of need to start again this year with the same resolutions ^^" Like losing weight again and be super productive at work and do more photoshootings because I was lazy as fuck.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
no

4. Did anyone close to you die?
A person not really close to me commited suicide at the beginning of the year. I knew him and we met each other the day before christmas 2014, it was a big shock.
Also the best friend of my grandmother died and I knew her since I was little. It was sudden and a shock, too.

5. What countries did you visit?
none because bavaria doen't count, does it? >D

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
A holiday trip, more time, productive photoshootings, less stress at work, HEALTH

7. What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
October 3rd - it was the day of my 30th birthday party and it was great, but much too shortlived. I "officially" made it a 18th - 90's themed party though >D

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Losing weight in the first half of the year and my overall rise in status and salary at work. Also completely saying goodbye to my long black hair and saying hello to a shorter red hairstyle.

Clothes, cosplay and partying and our apartment

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
My birthday party! Cosplaying as Shinya and Guren! The 18th birthday beach-party of my little sister and brother.

16. What song will always remind you of 2015?
Kind of... a lot of 90s evergreens because I used to listen to them all the time because of planning my party, especially Roxette, Vengaboys and Blümchen.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you...
a) ... happier or sadder?  I can't tell, but I'd like to be healthy again, it makes me sad to be sick for this long
b) ... thinner or fatter?  Fatter because diets and sport are a taboo while being sick D:
c) ... richer or poorer? Richer... definitely.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Eat healthy, sports and photoshootings.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Being sick... being lazy.... and sulking because of it.

Try to get healthy again and to do sports and photoshootings!

With my love, family and my best friend.

Also I fell in love with Owari no Seraph - especially Shinya and Guren :D

23. How many one-night stands?
0

24. What was your favorite TV program?
There were a lot, but defnitely Owari no Seraph and Durararax2 as for TV shows --- Big bang theory and Circus HalliGalli are always nice.

Noone really... I think I met up with everyone who is important for me.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
I did meet a few new people, but I sadly haven't been able to deepen the contact with them yet. 
But I was able to deepen the contact with some old friends again and that was awsome.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015:
Not a real lesson though. But I learned that being indifferent about people who get on your nerves and try to learn and accept one's differences without always getting mad about stuff can be very relaxing. Also, if you want something - do it. Take it. Get it. It won't wait for you and it won't come to you if you don't grab it yourself. That kind of fits my 2015 atmosphere, I guess.

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

Rae Garvey - Can't say no

Me and you, she says: 'we're like an odd pair of shoes, 
One slightly stylish and one slightly plain 
one for the nightlife and one for the rain'

I never argue cause you never give in 
No use in fighting cause I never win 
There's no rules on this ship of fools 
Only lifeboat survivors who know what to do

As I hold her tight, she tries to fight it 
As she rolls her eyes, a slow submission 
Cause she knows I'm right, she dances 
Dance in the broad daylight 
Cause I can't say no, no I can't say no 
I'm ten feet tall when she's by my side 
But I can't say no to her smile

Me and you,
I think we found something old and new 
Something borrowed, we're bulletproof 
yet we know when to bend, we're like sonic youth 
Never gonna end

I never argue cause you never give in 
No use in fighting cause I never win 
There's no rules on this ship of fools 
Only lifeboat survivors who know what to do

As I hold her tight, she tries to fight it 
As she rolls her eyes, a slow submission 
Cause she knows I'm right, she dances

Dance in the broad daylight 
Cause I can't say no, no I can't say no 
I'm ten feet tall when she's by my side 
But I can't say no to her smile

Can't say no 
I can't say no 
I can't say no 
(I can't say no to her smile) 
Why would want to not give you all that you need 
Love's unconditional without room for greed 
So many ships before us have sunk and are on the ground 
If you're afraid of heights, my friend 
Then don't look down
