So, another year has gone. Now its time to recap the year. Again. . .something's gotta be better.

Javann's Completely Awesome Year (Not Quite Completely Awesome, But okay)

1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?
I moved out. I moved into a house with my sister. It was. . .different and not done before.
2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I have no resolve, much less during new years to do anything

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Um. . .yeah, I'm sure someone did, I just don't remember.
4. Did anyone close to you die?
Kenneth Goode. He was a great man and his death made me hurt.

5. What countries did you visit?
The US of A. But it wasn't really a visit.

6. What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008?
Honestly? I don't know, some answers to the questions that always seem to resurface when I sit alone in the dark.

7. What date(s) from 2008 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Uh, the day that I visited Columbia, SC and was the best man in Jacob's wedding. What date was that? I really can't remember. But I assure you, it is etched in my memory.

8. What were your biggest achievements of the year?
Getting another. . .oh wait that was in 2007. . .I accomplished nothing.
9. What was your biggest failure?
I don't want to tackle this question.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
My first strained muscle in my lower back, hooray!! Numerous cuts, and a lot of food poisoning. Stupid food poisoning.
11. What were the best things you bought?
Uh. . .I really didn't buy anything substantial this year, maybe some new shoes, a cool sweater. That's about it.
12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
No one really. Well, Tre did start pioneering, and become an EMT. So hooray for him. And I didn't mean that sarcastically, even though that's how I said it.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
No one appalled or depressed me. . .except for myself of course. Yay.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Petrol (my goodness the petrol) clothing

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Nothing really. . .I can never figure out if my life is depressing or if its just this form. . .
16. What song will always remind you of 2008?
Viva La Vida - Coldplay

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
(a) happier or sadder? believer it or not happier
(b) thinner or fatter? thinner (yes!)
(c) richer or poorer? In theory richer, but in practice still broke

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
Traveling and cool stuff. More cool stuff should've been done

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Work? I guess.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?
Somewhere dark quiet, and thankfully non-festive

22. Did you fall in love in 2008?
No. Of course not.

23. How many one-night stands?
I've got this nice plastic rubber maid storage drawer set that I keep next to my bed, had a five inch television on it, so I guess you can call it a night stand. And it is a singular.

24. What was your favorite TV program?
Robot Chicken really showed me something. As did Aqua Teen Hungerforce, but that's normal of course.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
My list of abhorrance is only comparable to my list of mistakes

26. What was the best book you read?
Keep Yourselves in God's Love
27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
This year? TV on the Radio, My Morning Jacket
28. What did you want and get?

29. What did you want and not get?
I'm sticking with last years answer:

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
This year? Hmmm. . .Pineapple Express. It was hilarious.
31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I uh, did nothing. Yeah, that's about right.

Learning more. About anything.

Half metal and half hip hop, all stylish of course

34. What kept you sane?
Who said I was sane?

35. Which celebrity figure did you fancy the most?
How about that Meagan Fox? Rawr!
36. What political issue stirred you the most?
Spiritual blindness not being an issue.

37. Who did you miss?
Roldie. He moved so far away.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
Uh. . .Reed Cavanaugh. You'd think that name would be enough. And you'd be right in that thought. If you don't know Reed Cavanaugh, you should stop what you're doing find him and meet him, right now!

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008?
I need to buckle down and go back to college. If I don't get my degree, I'll spend the rest of my life miserable and somewhat unfulfilled.
40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
I'm an ever rollin' wheel, without a destination real.
I'm an ever spinning top, whirling around till I drop.
Oh but what am I to do, my mind is in a whirlpool.
Give me a little hope, one small thing to cling to.
You got me going in circles (oh round and round I go)
You got me going in circles
(oh round and round I go, I'm spun out over you)
I'm a faceless clock, with timeless hopes that never stop.
Lord but I feel that way, of my soul. My soul is stay.
Oh but what am I to do, my mind is in a whirlpool.
Give me a little hope, one small thing to cling to.
You got me going in circles (oh round and round I go)
You got me going in circles
(oh round and round I go) I'm spun out over you
(I need you baby) over you (I need you baby) spun out over you.
(I need you baby, I need you baby baby)
I'm spun (I need you baby) I said I'm spun out over you (I need you baby)
Spun out over you (I need you baby, I need you baby, I need you baby)

Don't ask for explanation. Well you can ask, I won't guarantee the answers. Anyway, thanks for the time, and spit the intelligence at me.
