Year End Review and Geekiness

So, I'm combining posts. I got the meme from Yellow MM and Tiburon, with a geeky #dirrrtmagic filled video for you all to watch. It only proves my geekiness and shame... I'll post the video first so you don't have to read the mass of text first to get at it.

Now for the meme!

What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before? I took online classes at BYU. That was a pain. I also never uploaded a vlog either. Craziness.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I did not make any resolutions last year. So that means I kept them all?! Woo! 100%

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Sethicus and his wife have a very beautiful baby girl, Seraphim was born in November. (name not changed there)

4. Did anyone close to you die? No, one has died close to me, thank goodness. Also no one close to me has died either.

5. What countries did you visit? Sadly, I am a poor college student and did not travel. This must be remedied.

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009? World domination, good grades, smurfts, a bazillion abs, more faith, more self confidence and self-esteem.

7. What dates from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? June, because of Iran's elections. I want to help out. And the day Obama and irony won the Nobel Peace Prize.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? A- in Linear Algebra! Being re-admitted to BYU. Being called legit by several bloggers bloggers on Twitter. Overcame a bit of depression too... But shh! No one knows about that!

9. What was your biggest failure? Still haven't obtained world domination, didn't complete the fast track back option to get back into school for the fall semester.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? Only a little cold, and I also have some girl Alexandria up top in my head. I may need to get that looked into...

11. What was the best thing you bought? I bought the universe. I am still trying to find the price tag to see how much I spent on it.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? Elder Fields. He has grown a lot since he has entered the mission in Chicago. Also, I'll celebrate any one of your all behaviors. It deserves it!

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? Mostly mine, for much of the year. I wasn't doing well in the polls, Nasa declared war on the moon without my say so... but things are better.

14. Where did most of your money go? Inside my belly and brain... er food and tuition?

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? Getting back into school, the green Iranian uprising, my blade, Alexandria!, and my new top hat!

16. What song will always remind you of 2008? I am writing it. Give me time to finish, say, in 30 years?

17. Compared to this time last year, are you... Happier, more learned, wizened from feeling down and out and learning how to get back up again. Eager to get back in the game and will soon be richer when my student loan comes in

18. What do you wish you’d done more of? More active, more of myself, been more goofy, less social conscious. Fly. Managed my time better.

19. What do you wish you’d done less of? Less planning of global domination. Less feeling awkward, less sitting on my butt and playing games. Less studying like a loon for hours on end.

20. How did you spend Christmas? With my awesome family, killing bunnies.

21. Did you fall in love in 2009? Not yet. Two more days shall see if that changes.

22. What was your favorite TV program? Community, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Colbert Report, Daily Show.

23. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year? No, they have all been politically eliminated.

24. What was the best book you read? Harry Potter, the Tales of Beedle the Bard.

25. What was your greatest musical discovery? Pirates of Penzance

26. What did you want and get? Top hat and fencing sword. Old school rules.

27. What did you want and not get? How many times do I have to say global domination? I'd settle for the allegiance of a small 3rd world country... Anyone?

28. What was your favorite film of this year? Sherlock Holmes.

29. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? I turned 23 and was homeless for a day. Also I moved into a new student ward the next day and didn't tell anyone.

30. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Getting finished with some independent study courses. Proving to myself that I am not completely socially awkward.

31. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2009? Top hats, white gloves and a cane? How would you describe it?

32. What kept you sane? Have you seen my vlogs? What sanity?

33. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? This year? None really. None come to mind.

34. What political issue stirred you the most? Iran. I want to do more, I want to help.

35. Who did you miss? Friends. Those I did not have the chance at meeting or was too awkward in first meeting and lost opportunities to hang out.

36. Who was the best new person you met? Bloggers, Some cool guys in my ward such as Adam and Bryce. My roommates.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2009: The value of being happy.

38. What are you looking forward to in 2010? Fencing. School. Programming.

39. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year. "It's the eye of the tiger, the year of the fight..." - The Rocky theme song.

Katie said...

Bahaha...That was rather special. You are very strange. But it's okay. I may steal that meme for my new years blog. haha

Sam, The Nanti-SARRMM said...

Katie: Indeed I am. If you refer also to my answers, it is because I don't life that seriously to answer all these questions seriously.

CarrieBradshaw* said...

If I didn't know any better I'd say you are high as a kite!

Sam, The Nanti-SARRMM said...

Carrie: High off Oxygen maybe? Sorry, it's something my friends and me said in high school that I randomly remembered.

But why get high to act silly if that can come naturally?

Lauren said...
