Everybody’s been doing this lately.
This year our store was destroyed by a fire, but my parents got up from the tragedy quickly and got things going again.
This year Jaykie got sick, a difficult time for the both of us, but he got better after a week and now he’s as healthy as ever.
This year I got sick, but it was nothing serious, just a moment’s annoyance.
This year I gained the pounds I lost in 2009 (I needed to get jeans that are an inch wider). I have to admit the weight gain made me miserable – very miserable at times – but I’m positive now I’ll lose them again next year.
This year I moved to another unit due to asshole caretakers, but that’s a thing of the past. (I like the new unit better.)
This year I attended my first Open Gaming Meet.
This year I attended the first Polyhedral.
This year I finally got to see Avenue Q onstage!
This year I got a children’s book published. (Just recently, Jaykie told me the story made his 5-year-old nephew cry.)
This year I won a literary award. (Free Press!)
This year I made collages, but unfortunately had to stop because the new unit didn’t have enough room for me to post them.
This year I got published in Philippine Speculative Fiction V, and attended the book launch. Always a fun treat.
This year I took pictures of old pictures.
This year I had a perm.
This year I learned I needed glasses.
This year I had a Valentine’s Day that’s not lonely, for once.
This year we went to Bohol with his friends – our first trip together.
This year I took him to Bulacan to meet my parents, months after I met his. Both events went really well.
This year I turned 24.
This year we celebrated our first year together.
This year was the first full year I spent in love with someone.
This year was happier because it had you in it.
To more years, and may 2011 be kind, even kinder.
