Where did you begin 2010?
What did you do on your birthday?
On my actual birthday, Matt surprised me by taking me to Jake's (which was surprising as we were on a break). Later I went to a Thirsty Thursday baseball game with some friends.
Where did you go on vacation?
San Francisco with Matt. Too much driving, but still fun and I finally got to go to some real amusement parks! Sunriver with Matt's family
What countries did you visit?
Honestly, I consider Cali another country based on toll roads (SERIOUSLY!?!?!), crazy drivers, etc.
Did you have any encounters with the police?
Yeah, stupid speeding ticket.
Where do you live now?
Beaverton, after moving out of the house I shared with former best friend.
Get a new job?
I moved to a different job in the same company.
Start a new hobby?
Does not running anymore count? Man I sucked at that this year.
Did you suffer illness or injury?
Nothing major I can think of.
What political issue stirred you the most?
I avoided the beejesus out of politics this year though anytime I saw Glen Beck I wanted to scream.
a) happier or sadder?
b) thinner or fatter?
c) richer or poorer?
About the same, maybe *slightly* more stable as I sold my car to get rid of that stupid debt
How many one-night stands?
None! Homey don't play dat.
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010?
Navy shirt & khakis - aka at work. Otherwise slowly improving, I've even spent over $50 for a pair of jeans recently!! AND bought a Gap sweater. Man, I am a cheapskate.
Who did you miss?
Mmm, my little brother since I don't see him so much.
Who was the best new person you met?
Mmmm, my co-workers at my new-er job.
Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
Yeah, actually. My former best friend who was such a mega-bitch to live with I couldn't stand it, and when we moved out, left me with almost 3 weeks of shit to clean and get rid of for payback for wanting to move in the first place. And her new best friend who created drama by accusing me of stealing her boyfriend and acting like a freaking 2 year old. I guess hate is a strong word but dislike? Oh yes. Very much.
Did you know anybody who got married?
Only random high school classmates as shown to me on Facebook!
Did anyone close to you give birth?
Did anyone close to you die?

Kareoke night @ Gypsy with friends, taking Matt to his first dance club EVER and various other specifics that escape me right now

I can't really think of anyone

See my answer for people I don't like this year. Also, the Tea Party (OK I couldn't TOTALLY ignore politics).

Wow, tricky. Inception, Tron & True Grit methinks. OH YEAH - The Other Guys was great unexpectedly as was Unstoppable.

A bunch of Blazer games, Beaver's (baseball) the final Timbers before they became MLS.
What concerts/shows did you go to?
Arcade Fire (amazing!). I swear there must be another but I can't think of it right now. WOW, though, sadly low on the concert count.
Where did most of your money go?
Bills. Student loans. You know, lame shit.
What was the best thing you bought?
Well technically "traded" my '08 Civic for my Dad's 04 Focus because it reduced my debt burden a crap ton.
