Note to self: a large double shot of tequila is too much to swallow in one gulp without choking and/or burning one's throat. o_O *coughs*

I really should do my friday five ASAP, considering that it's Sunday. :)

1. What was your biggest accomplishment this year?

Er... perhaps renovating my website to its more pictureful, colourful and spiffy state. I really can't think of anything else.

2. What was your biggest disappointment?

Spending most of a year in a crappy house in a rural area (Dunsandel) with sod-all to do. Now that I know what it's like, I will never do such a thing again.

3. What do you hope the new year brings?

Enjoyable work, less free time ('cause currently I spend too much time brooding), money, new friends, fun in a new city. I suppose all those things kinda follow each other along.

4. Will you be making any New Year's resolutions? If yes, what will they be?

Well, I've had a few ideas so far. Improve my diet: eat less dairy, more vegan, more legumes, and so on. Exercise to accompany the effects of a good diet. Try not to be irritable with or brood over things (and people) I cannot and need not change, realising that 'the problem' is often mine alone. Find good ways to spend my time, including work. Blog positively about something every day, no matter how trivial. Try to be less cynical and jealous. Remember to not only notice but cherish the little wonders of life. Don't repress or bottle thoughts and feelings; and if I need to cry, at least enjoy it. When a good idea presents itself, work towards realising it.

5. What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

Apart from the perennial good plan of waiting on an east-facing beach for sunrise, I hadn't thought of anything specific.
