18 Questions Of Your Past Year

I’m not going to lie, this isn’t the original title of the tag. It’s originally called “20 questions for a New Years eve reflection”. But that’s over and I really liked the questions, and I really like answering questions, so I’m just going to wing it.

Basically 20 questions that all have to do with 2014.
This is how I battle my eye infection, It won’t take me down.

What was the single best thing that happened this past year? 
– Hm. Is it bad that I have to think about it? I really didn’t like or enjoy 2014. Well, the absolute best thing that happened is definitely me starting this blog. Or my friend Kevin encouraging me and basically pushing me to start. It ended up being a marvelous decision. Another thing I can’t leave out, he sent me The Fault in Our Stars original book, and English versions of LOTR and The Hobbit! ❤

What was the single most challenging thing that happened? 
– Oh man. Damn, 2014 was a pathetic year. I’m gonna go with, riding on the biggest roller coaster that currently exists here. Now mind you,this is tiny compared to world wide roller coasters and rides in general. But I have that curse of my gizzard swirling around when I move from high points to lower points. Basically all types of slides, elevators, etc. But it was a little less than 10 meters high and that for a slide down is gigantic here.
… I ended up going 6 times in a row. It was still challenging! It was terrifying the first time.

What was an unexpected joy this past year?
– Being able to patch things up again with Michael to some pretty nice grounds. Working on filling up the holes in the cement but pretty soon it’ll be solid. That made me and is still making me marvelously happy.

What was an unexpected obstacle? 
Physics. That’s all I’m saying. Damn you to hell. I almost lost my year because of you.

Pick three words to describe 2014.
– YearOfTheAmazingWinter, Stressful, Educational (not in school ways).

Pick three words your partner/best friend/parent would use to describe your 2014 (don’t ask them; guess based on how you think your partner/best friend/parent sees you)
– My best friend would say this year for me was stressful, slow and soul-searching. My mom would say

Pick three words your partner/best friend would use to describe their 2014 (again without asking)
– Stressful, slow and anxious. Me and my best friend we’re almost on the same paths.

What were the best books you read this year? 
– Suddenly, the year is passing through my mind. I almost can’t remember anything. But, I’m gonna say Game of Thrones. It is the first year I actually even started getting interested in that show, and I am in love. The book is brilliant and mind you, very difficult. I only read the first book through. The series is still going on and I am taking my time with it. There are 8 books SO FAR.

With whom were your most valuable relationships? 
– The term relationship can mean so many things. If the meaning behind it is romantic relationships, I have been single throughout the entire year. But a valuable relationship in general, definitely my mother, my more recent dear friend Kevin and my dearest friend Michael. I love them all and they have shown me so much in 2014.

What was your biggest personal change from January to December of this past year?
– I wanna say I am definitely more calmer and more serious than I was in 2013. I hate blaming things on hormones and those ”teenager excuses”. That irks me. It was a year of self-examination. I mentioned multiple times, it was a year where I grew as a person and definitely learned from my mistakes, that I have made BLOODY A LOT in 2013. (I’m sorry Michael). Passed those lessons into action and I’m still working on it. I’m definitely more wiser and calmer.

In what way(s) did you grow emotionally? 
– Oh boy. I wouldn’t say I grew, honestly. I would say I decreased in a few aspects. 2014, as mentioned above was a year of growth for me as a person, but I also took the time to realize what I want to keep as part of me, part of my personality and what not.
I don’t know if that makes sense. I did work on improving myself, but in my attempts, people took that as a weakness of mine and grabbed the chance to stomp on me and clean their muddy boots off me.
Certain people. Which caused one big heart break all together, a massive disappointment and made me incredibly bitter and quick to cut-throat someone out of my life if I just don’t want to put my effort in. If I don’t feel they deserve it, and my deal breakers are high up there. If you crossed it, it means you crossed it. It made me, how do you say it – harsh. The softest way I can put it.
I grew more caring and cautious of people’s feelings for the one’s I thought deserved it of course.

In what way(s) did you grow spiritually? 
– I don’t do that. I think. I may have messed up on the meaning.

In what way(s) did you grow physically? 
– Well I do eat a lot..

In what way(s) did you grow in your relationship with others? 
I feel like I’m going to repeat myself over and over. 
I definitely became more distrusting. I guess you could call me pretty naive, but the more time flies, I think I know the signs.

What was your single biggest time waster in your life this past year? 
– My Physics exams. They should have never happened, they didn’t need too. I wasted a perfectly good summer and replaced it with stress and worry, on top of other things. And I wasted a potential holiday in Greece.

What was the best way you used your time this past year?
– Well I worked very hard and it paid off. I completed many goals concerning my school work and grades, my personal relations with my friends. All of that took time and a lot of energy since I am not a natural born optimist.

What was the biggest thing you learned this past year? 
– Don’t take people for granted and don’t let your ego get the best of you. Put your pride aside and be fair.

Create a phrase or statement that describes 2014 for you.

 Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself. 

I guess yeah.

Okay, this blogpost turned out to be way more serious than I thought it was going to be. I was so prepared for a fun, quick tag where I’d show off my witty and humorous jokes, but nope. I had to think long and hard before I wrote and it didn’t even turn out that good. Damn it.

But, I tag Finicky Cynic, Professor VJ Duke,  Fatina96, Human Interest, deepbluesandseafoamgreens & Feminine and Feline to do this tag, whenever they wish! That’s everyone I can think off the top of my head.

Have a good one!

My Music Library List From A – Z

I’ve thought about doing this for awhile but I always think of it as I’m doing something else or I’m at someone else’s house and I am unable to write. Thankfully, another fellow blogger Books, Tea and a Onesie just wrote it and I got inspired!
Now, let me add a disclaimer here that I don’t usually delete my songs. I think I still have Baby from Justin Bieber on my memory card simply because it was originally put there 3-4 years ago. Yeah, it’s that bad. I’m that lazy. And some may be Serbian. I apologize.

Actually no, I checked but you get my point. Other Justin Bieber songs then. Not saying there’s anything wrong if I do have them in my phone. I ocassionaly like to swing pass his songs. Just to see what he’s coming up with nowadays. I think It might be a little bit embarassing honestly, but what the hell!
Also, since I’ve never truly talked about songs, or music for that matter on this blog, I’m going to let my phone pick for me. I won’t cheat.

Abandon All Ships – Guardian Angel 

Ooh, I love this. This song used to give me butterflies. This is a bit of a song not for everyone, it has a bit of growl in it, so who’s not into that at all… give it a shot still? I love the lyrics!

Backstreet Boys – As long as you love me 

Oh, we have a classic right here. We are all aware of Backstreet boys. The not-so-typical boy band I love. What is there to say? If you’re in love, listen and enjoy life. Applies for singles too, of course!

Can’t forget you – My darkest days 

Heading to sad songs right now. A very nice, meaningful song. If you have a past dear one that won’t get out of your mind and it hurts as hell, this is an okay song to listen too. I haven’t in quite awhile. It’s kind of old.

Darin – You’re out of my life 

I forgot I had this. I can’t believe all of these are lovey, goey, emotion filled. Is this all I listen too.

Eenie Meenie – Justin Bieber ft Sean Kingston 

Miney mo! Oh! There’s Biebs! Also an oldie I haven’t pressed on in quite awhile. I used to love this song, don’t hate.

Falling Up – Falling in love

Oh, I love this song. It’s a love song, with a lot of sound, music and beat, kind off. Found it accidentally on the weird side of YouTube.

Gift of a friend – Demi Lovato 

Okay, I can’t believe I still have this. I think this was for the Tinker Bell movie? Or no, was that Selena? I think it was Selena. I know this was for some movie/thing. It’s a really really nice song about friendship, but damn, I need to refresh this thing.

Hannah Montanta – Nobody’s Perfect 

Oh come on… Classic. From 2009 or something.

Nobody’s perfect, I gotta work it, again and again till I get it right!
Nobody’s perfect, you live and you learn it.
Live by it kids!

Icon for Hire – Hope of morning 

A more serious song that I absolutely love. I related to it a lot. A little self-concious, hopeful song. Found this band by complete accident and fell in love with two songs, ’cause I was too lazy to check out others. This is a no brainer. Awesome.

Joe Jonas – I gotta find you 

Oookay, stop, stop, stop. Get that jaw back up. I used to love the Jonas show, the Jonas Brother’s and this is from the movie Camp Rock that I also love. Plus, it’s a wonderful song. If you love love, love this song.

Katy Perry – Last Friday night 

Why phone? Why not another Katy Perry song first? I have all of them. I mean it’s Katy, it’s obviously great. This is a tad bit crazy song.

Lady Gaga – Paparazzi 

This is going to be deleted after this list. I don’t listen to this artist and well known that I am not a fan. Feels hypocritical to have her sitting there. But I can’t lie, I used to like the song.

Magical Legend of The Leprachauns – Soundtrack from the movie. 

AMAZING. The movie, the soundtrack is so sweet. It just makes your heart and soul dance. Agh!

We can fly away, fly away. No more doubt or fear, nothing left to say. 

Never be the same – Red 

Another amazing song. Absolutely stunning. I love this band in general, one of my favorites. Whoever is a fan of rock, you will love this. Every song has amazing lyrics and music.

One Direction – Little things 

Don’t you judge me. It’s a nice song. I just found it one day you know, just casually, I liked it and downloaded.

Pieces – Sum 41

Very,very sad song. I adore it, but very sad and very relatable. For me excruciatingly.

Que hay detras – RBD (Rebelde) 

This is on here since I was in the 3rd grade, literally. I used to LOVE this band, from the Spanish soap opera called Rebelde, as well. I know all the songs and if you haven’t liked the show, most likely won’t like their music.

RBD – Asi soy yo 

Yep.

S&M – Rihanna 

Mmm, honestly, haven’t listened to this in awhile. It’s a cool, beat song. Fun to dance too. Haven’t checked Rihanna’s work, in…awhile.

Taylor Swift – Crazier 

This is one of her oldest songs ever. And the mushiest/sweetest. Me like.

Urlik Munther – Moments ago 

This is a Swedish singer I know next to nothing about, but I know this song that is quite nice. Very cute.

Westlife – I need you 

Opop! Another lovely boy band and another LOVELY song. Are you getting that 85% of these are lovey dovey?

Your Guardian Angel – Red Jumpsuit Apparatus 

One of my favorite songs I always go back too. It’s so beautiful. If you have someone you care for, and you want to promise you’ll always be there, just, ugh. Lovely song.

Željko Joksimović – Ljubavi 

Serbian singer, but the most beautiful song of his.

I feel like you either knew them, or you knew them. I don’t change up my lists that much. But there’s 435 more songs. More to come!
