I’m just being curious here. Since I was a little girl I’ve always had pen pals but since the time of instant messaging began they stopped writing. But I love getting mail (apart from bills) so I was wondering if anyone would be interesting in exchanging letters? :)
2:Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Since I am not making new year’s resolutions I couldn’t keep any and I sure as hell won’t start with that stuff, because I don’t function under pressure. It just wouldn’t do me any good.
7:What dates from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? I’m a terrible person. I just had to look up today’s date, that should prove how shitty I am with dates. I could name some things that I’ll remember but dates? Nope.
16:What song will always remind you of 2013? I discovered Mumford & Sons in 2013 so “Babel” but also Daft Punk’s “Get lucky” (even though it wasn’t one of my favs. I liked contact a lot better)
24: Already did that one! :D
32:Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? Some old, same old. I still worship the ground Paget Brewster, AJ Cook and Olivia Wilde walk on. I also discovered my deep love for Paul F. Tompkins comedy solos and traveled to London to see him perform.
12:Whose behaviour merited celebration? That’s a really tough one, so I thought about it for a while. Over all I’d like to join the Jennifer Lawrence appreciation club. She didn’t really DO something but showing especially the kids and teens who’re looking up to Hollywood, that being a decent human being is way more important than your next diet is a great things nowadays. On the personal side I’d like to add one of my besties, who managed to balance and maintain our friendship even though another friend and I ended not speaking to each other for the whole year so far. She is close to both of us and manages this situation great. She is a rock for me and I couldn’t thank her enough for being the person she is.
17:Compared to this time last year, are you: (a) happier or sadder? (b) thinner or fatter? (c) richer or poorer? Rearranging my books and furniture always makes me happy so I’d like to say right now I am happier as long as I don’t think about my inability to sit down and finish my goddamn cultural sciences degree. I didn’t gain or lose weight which I’ll book as a huge success because I wasn’t able to go to the gym since I got some severe allergies out of nowhere in march D: (c) poorer. I really need to finish that degree. You wanna write my thesis? No? Too bad.
24:What was the best book you read? Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg!! It was on my to-do list for a very long time and I loved every single word. I also liked The Virgin Suicides and Gone Girl a lot. 2013 also seems to be the year in which I’ve read the most rubbish so far. Srsly, there were some REALLY bad ones.
In Germany we celebrate Christmas on Christmas eve. Which is round about now! So I wish all of you a merry Christmas and if you don’t celebrate it I still wanna wish you a beautiful time. May all of you be able to share it with the people you care about. May your wishes come true and may the next year be everything you want it to be.
I am off now to have dinner and spend the evening together with my parents.
