Hell, I haven't posted here in ages... And I'd like to do a meme, even if it's boring. So here you go - my 2013 resume...

1. What did you do in 2013 that you'd never done before? Told the people who paid me (job-wise) that I thought what they did/thought of doing was complete and utter bullshit (according to my professional opinion and responsibilities) and thus lost my job.

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? No, and no.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Yes, two very good friends of mine did. S. and K.

4. Did anyone close to you die? No.

5. What countries did you visit? Just the Netherlands, like every year. But I loved, loved, loved it!!

6. What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013?
Apart from a job by the end of the year - nothing. I'm good.

7. What date from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
The day I told those fuckwits at my former job that they can suck my dick (pardon the expression). Because I really stuck up for what I know to be right and true - with a shitty consequence for myself but I still firmly believe I did the right thing.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Not giving in to convenience.

9. What was your biggest failure? Being less tolerant than I'd have wanted to be.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? Apart from the occasional paper cut or cold - thankfully no.

11. What was the best thing you bought? My very first Escada clothes.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
My husband's, because he always stays true to himself.

13. Whose behavior, what situations appalled and depressed you?
Latest: The German CSU party and their truly stupid and very shitty attitude towards the opening of the EU towards Romania and Bulgaria. Honestly, people, you've got to be kidding... I mean, how pathetic can you get???? I honestly have zero tolerance for your whatever it is you're doing. None whatsoever!

14. Where did most of your money go? Rent.

15. What events did you get really, really, really excited about? Sherlock Season 3. And my mum selling her house and moving to a new flat.

16. What song will always remind you of 2013? Probably Lykke Li "I Follow Rivers" and Barclay James Harvest "John Lennon's Guitar" (although the last one is ages and ages old....)

17. Compared to this time last year, you areā€¦
richer or poorer?
poorer
fatter or thinner? about the same
happier or less happy? ditto

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?
try new recipes

19. What do you wish you'd done less of? nothing

20. How did you spend Christmas? with my family <3

21. Did you fall in love in 2013?
No, not really. Celeb crushes excluded. :D

22. What was your favorite TV program? Sherlock.

23. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year? Oh yes, with a vengeance!!!

24. What was the best book you read? Marisha Pessl "Night Film"

25. What was your greatest musical discovery or rediscovery?
I didn't discover anything new this year.

26. What did you want and get? Someone to become a friend.

27. What did you want and not get? A new job by the end of the year.

28. What were your favorite films of this year? Since I only watched Star Trek Into Darkness and Thor The Dark World (at least as far as I can remember), I'd have to go with Thor 2, please.

29. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
Celebrated my 40th in Amsterdam. Great times were had.

30. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Those shitheads at my old company to fail spectacularly.

31. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2013? The usual: business chic, casual, occasionally dressed up to the occasion. :D

32. What kept you sane?
Sheer dumb luck? Since I don't know what turns a person "insane" (or whatever that means, for that matter...), I don't have a clue.

33. What political issue stirred you the most? See #13

34. Whom did you miss? M., very much so.

35. Who was the best new person you met?
I think my now ex-colleagues N. and S.

36. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013. Never trust someone who has a "C" in their job title when they're younger than 30 / never work with toddlers ever again.
