    Regrets:

    I regret losing a friend thanks to lack of attention. I should have seen the signs.

    I also really regret giving into my temptation to smoke, so now I have to wait a full year for a surgery.

    Also I regret giving my brother a third chance.

    Accomplishments:

    I feel like I have accomplished quite a bit this year. I moved into a studio apartment with my cat, and without baggage for once. I have cut out drama from my life as of 12/26/13, and I have led a full life thus far. I have found a gift in writing, and organizing (my apartment however yeesh man). I've also managed my budget to the point where I know where each and every cent goes.

    Also I came out as openly gay for the first time and wasn't attacked with my family's issues.

    Goals:

    Live life to the fullest, find someone possibly, finished my book by 2025, get my other cat home

    Key Points of 2013 for you:

    The negatives:

    -Lost a brother
    -Lost a great friend
    -Had multiple mental breakdowns
    -Trouble with the family
    -Foster/street brother lost his kid
    -Had to leave my other cat with my foster mother


    The positives

    -Got a new job that pays very well
    -Moved into a new apartment (studio!)
    -Have my kitty with me now
    -Going to school
    -I'm alive
    -I've realized that I am not stupid
    -I found Iwaku (seriously if my book is published donations will be made to this place!!!)

    Do you keep a resolution?:

    No, because you shouldn't have to set only one goal just to ignore/forget it later on

    What do you hope for next year?:

    That I survive passed the first day. Seriously.

    And last, what is the best memory of 2013?:

    Honestly so many good things happened to me this year that I don't know.

  2. Well then, lets see!

    Regrets:
    It's kind of regret and kind of not. I had family drama back in April and it was pretty bad. I banned someone from my house. I feel 100% like I made the right decision, but I still wish it hadn't come to that and that it was resolved. :( It's pretty much killed my love of planning family gatherings, cause there's no way for me to do it without it being uncool and awkward. But it's something I feel very strongly about and refuse to let go without an apology. At this point I don't know what to do about it anymore. T____T

    Accomplishments:
    HOLY CRAP, I CAN PAINT. I had no idea. O____O I have always liked art and I have painted once or twice before in the past, but omg. I can actually paint. I can paint GOOD. I am very pleased about that.

    IWAKU IS NUMBER ONE. NUUUUMBA OOONE.

    Goals:
    I want to smile and play every day. To be content with life. I have been there before, I can be there again!

    Key Points of 2013 for you:
    ASS. MORE ASS. DOUBLE ASS. FUCKING ASS COCK ASS. FUCK.

    And then IWAKU IS NUMBER ONE. 8D

    Do you keep a resolution?:
    I don't make resolutions, cause I never keep them. t____t

    What do you hope for next year?:
    I really, really hope that those things that have been so shitty this year finally get resolved. I am ready for life to change and to start making it's climb back in to awesometown. I want to paint more. Enjoy holidays. Take a trip. I wanna run an epically badass forum roleplay!

    And last, what is the best memory of 2013?:
    IWAKU IS NUMBER ONE.

  3. Regrets:
    -I didn't do many things wisely.
    -I had a chance to give up cigarettes, and I was doing good for a while! But I gave into temptations.
    -I didn't spend money wisely. I purchased things on impulse that could have DEFINITELY been used for better things.
    -I haven't been exactly the nicest guy, lately. My personality's changed as my opinions and perceptions change--maybe not for the better.
    -I've become distant with the majority of my friends. I really don't know who to call a close friend, honestly.
    Accomplishments:
    -I've completed my classroom sessions of my MLT program without a hitch! Now I just gotta do well in clinical practicum and I'm a full fledged lab tech!
    -I've been able to broaden my knowledge on many things of the real world. I feel like I'm more empathetic now.
    -I've truly come to terms with my sexuality and my love life! I'm understanding more about myself and not being afraid of it, either.
    -I've learned how to do more things on my own as an adult now! I feel so independent!
    -I've made new friends!

    Goals:
    -Lose weight!
    -Become knowledgeable!
    -Understand others!
    -Be wise in how I live my life!
    -Be the truest me that I can be!

    Key Points of 2013 for you:
    -Made friends of a different culture and age, so I see things very differently!
    -My best friend's having a family crisis, and it's affecting my family too...but we're all learning how make do.
    -Though being around only women most of the time has been trying, they've helped me understand my emotions and help me learn to accept it.
    -I understand what it is now to struggle financially. That's helped me grow stronger and wiser.
    -Meeting people from all walks of life makes me realized how blessed I am to be in the circumstances I'm in--and how much I take it for granted each day.

    Do you keep a resolution?:
    Not all of my resolutions are upheld. However, some of them I keep! I made a mission for myself. I have to make someone smile each day. And that mission I feel has made me realize that I can change my own environment.

    What do you hope for next year?:
    To grow! Intellectually, emotionally, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually!

    And last, what is the best memory of 2013?:
    -It's a simple one. It sticks in my mind though. A woman with low-income had to feed her three grandchildren left at her house. I remember how I gave her my table waiting tips for the night--it was a slow night, and I had only made $18. I can't begin to describe the gratitude and joy on her face when i gave her that money. That's not even half the money that would take me to a far off town. I sometimes spend that money in one day alone when I go do errands and meetings and business! But that little bit of money made her night. I can't forget that night.

    Song of 2014:
    UGH THIS IS THE HARDEST THING TO CHOOSE! I guess I'll just post a song that makes me happy that I've been listening to for a while!
