The Best Things - 2011 edition!

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Sylvir, Dec 28, 2011.

  1. With all the wonderful threads relating to Christmas, New Years, etc, basically events that mark the end of 2011, I think it would be great to reflect on what has happened throughout the entire year~

    2011 for many has been not such a great year, I think. Finding a job is difficult, school is stressful, relationships are difficult to maintain.... Let's not forget that just getting by a single day is a challenge in itself.

    But one of my favorite sayings is: Don't cry because it's over, be thankful that it happened. (∩_∩) I think that every difficulty we encounter is an opportunity for us to grow wiser, become stronger, forge a better future for ourselves!!

    So let's try hard to think back on at least one good thing that happened! Post about it! They also say that smiles/laughter is contagious, and i do believe it is true (/^▽^)/
  2. I had a lot of good stuff happen this year. Self discovery, positive life style changes, monetary gain. I guess the best thing was traveling and meeting friends across the country. Also, Diana's cooking.
  3. Sylvir you should have told me you started an appreciate something from 2011 thread :o

    I think some of my favorite things from this year would have to be;

    Getting back into my hobby of drawing, even if it's still not as often as I used to. (hard to break away from my new routine and find time to draw)
    My birthday this year. The first in a long while where nothing particularly bad ruined the feeling of the whole day. Plus, the moon was orange that night and orange is my favorite color. It was a sign.
    Honestly? Talking together with Sylvir as often as we used to. It's nice doing that again.
    Spending a lot more time with friends in real life as well. I need to stop being such a shut in XD
  4. I went back to school in 2011 for a subject that is near and dear to my heart!

    I got to be in my favorite place in the US for the start of 2011 with good friends and lots of explosives on Oahu.

    I got to see my bestie and her familyclan and visit a part of the US I've never been to before.

    2011 was an awesome year of friends, travel and self discovery. I hope for ore in 2012!
  5. I started off the year in my very first house! :D

    I reconnected with my childhood best friend after losing touch for several years!

    I found out I am going to be an Auntie! <3

    I got to spend my birthday week with my present date bestie! >:D

    I finally got MARRIED! 8D

    I enjoyed and aaawesome vaycay with members of Iwaku!

    This was a pretty great year! XD
  6. I've always wanted to go on a road trip D: How was it? Did the price of gas make your wallet cry XD?

    P.S. Yay for someone cooking for you ^.^
  7. I prefer the 1999 edition, personally! ;)

    Seriously, though...

    I appreciate the friends I made in 2011, some of whom are as near and dear to me as ones I made in the past years. I made some small but noteworthy strides towards some of my ultimate goals in 2011, too. Same as most others, too: Self discovery. You can never learn enough about who you are, nor do you ever know enough about who you are.

    2012 will be a year full of more self discovery, and hopefully I will finally achieve one of the goals I've put off for far too long.
  8. I've always loved road trips as well. And yes, gas prices have skyrocketed.
  9. - actually started school despite the difficulties.
    - fell in love, got rejected, and realized that true love is never actually painful, even when its not yours.
