Woohoo! I had a nice new year drinking sily cocktails and playing Warhammer Quest with my boyfriend and two of his housemates, following an amazing gigglefit that made me mostly want to sleep. I made it to midnight, didn't send too many annoying texts, and on New Years Day, me and Dave just
made it to Wetherspoons in time for uber breakfast of humungouness. There was a lot of food. But we were hungry.
In 2010, I did a lot of stuff.
I had a job when I started the year, and I had a job when I finished the year. They might be different jobs, but I only spent 2 months unemployed, and I am significantly happier at my current place of work than I was at Geismar.
I had a boyfriend! I still have a boyfriend!
I haven't burned my house down! I still manage to live on my own without destroying things! I have had people over for dinner! I even remember to pay bills mostly on time.
I LARPed! I always LARP, but I bought more kit, and I ran a lot of events, and I played at the other system I go to.
I started running a tabletop campaign! I have always said I would never do this. I'm not a massive fan of tabletop gaming, but I found a system that I liked, and Dave made puppy eyes at me, so we have commenced on the most slap dash Unknown Armies game ever, and I continue to not have a clue what I'm doing.
I read quite a bit... but I'll get to that in a minute.
I sort of moved from LJ to DW, but only sort of, cos I still cross post.
I started baking. And suceeded at baking.
I watched a lot of films. I can't remember which ones though, because I forget to write them down. I know I saw Iron Man 2, and Inception (which I went to see on my own because no one else wanted to see it) and Legion (which I saw with Royce because Dave pulled a funny face when I suggested it), The A-Team, and The Losers, and a bunch of other stuff through my LoveFilm subscription, but my memory really does suck at times.
I watched a lot of crap TV. And good TV.
I continued to get on with Kay, and my step siblings (although in their case it's mostly down to never seeing them).
And I think that's about it.( Books I read in 2010 )
I only read 50 books this year, which is a lot less than previous years, but I've read more novels and non-fiction, and a lot less comics, mostly because I don't have the time to sit in front of the computer and read the .cbr collections, which is what I've tended to do in years past.
My to read list for 2011 is ridiculous, and likely to only get worse. My bookshelves are overflowing, and the library is suddenly an attractive prospect again. My Amazon wishlist is huge, mostly with Young Adult fiction, and my reading time is sadly reduced due to work.
And this is a huge long post, which I didn't intend it to be. Oops.
