What date from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? when my head hit the floor- the date? i couldn't care less
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
clean & sober for life
What was your biggest failure?
hmm...allowing the external to impact me so negatively
Did you suffer illness or injury? no thank you-
What was the best thing you bought? an electric guitar for the little guy
Whose behavior merited celebration? my mother-in-law, who knew she'd try real hard to be nice
Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Where did most of your money go?
hmm- WHO the fuck knows
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
meeting my LDR for the first time
What song will always remind you of 2004?
Compared to this time last year, are you: i. happier or sadder?
at this moment i'm sad, but i'm more whole and more happy, so i accept the sadness too
ii. thinner or fatter?
thinner- too much stress- hoping for just 4 lbs more
iii. richer or poorer? HAA!
18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
enjoyed more of the present
What do you wish you'd done less of?
worry about the unknown
How will you be spending Christmas?
well this year i DID enjoy the present with every loved one who was around me, next year, i hope my LDR is here with me
Did you fall in love in 2004?
yeah... who knew!
How many one-night stands?

hm- probably Clifford puppy days
Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?

'the love letters of Elizabeth Barrett & Robert Browning'

Andrea Bocelli- en italiano, cuts straight to my soul
What did you want and get?
What was your favorite film of this year?
hm... i don't know
What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Ha- i sat around in the aftershock of the 'X' having slammed my head into the floor, while my family tried to make it a sweet day for the little one
What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
having seen my LDR more often
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2004?
umm... it's ALL about panties
What kept you sane?
IAM, my girlfriends, the little guy, my mom, my supervisor at the shelter and Catalaioch
Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
hm- no idea
What political issue stirred you the most?
issue- no issue, just the 'democratic' (cough- cough) process
Who did you miss? my dad, my aunt, my girlfriend in Florida, my girlfriend who i finally located after 6 yrs and of course, my sweetie
Who was the best new person you met?
my love, Catalaioch
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004.
hm...i think i understand that not too much really matters, there is so much bullshit, so many things we are offended by, or angered by, or for me- stressed out by people's reactions. i'm learning that it's all so insignificant, i know it in my mind and in my heart but... i have to apply it. love, kindness, appreciation- what else is there really?

between the wise and the unwise-
the latter wonders at what is unusual,
the wise man wonders at the usual.

so- the year's comin' to an end...
so much has changed- for the better- no doubt- but u know-
i was thinkin' pregnancy, labor & childbirth was NOT such a party- and change of the significant kind- can be damn long & hard-
thank god we don't recall the journey down that birth canal-

these things we know-
the moon was beyond amazing last night, hanging low in the early evening...
the earth will continue to move at a steady pace, whether i am afraid or not...
the FedEx man is my hero of the moment...
She who sees from up high is surely smiling...
and in THIS moment...I am so happy~
