What was new in 2015?

I'm using LJ and Twitter a lot more. Well, I made my LJ back in 2007 and Twitter in 2008. Used both on and off throughout the years. I still need to lj more like make better posts about my life cuz I don't keep a journal which I really should...

Meme taken from splash. I'm lazy and did only less than half and had this draft saved for weeks. LOL.

1. What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
-Sold at Fanime Swap Meet! Make a good amount. :D

- Collected more Pokemon goods

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I never really make ones. I just hope for a better year with better opportunities... But I think I should this year because Year or the Monkey and I'm getting to my mid 20s soon..

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My cousin recently

4. Did anyone close to you die?

5. What countries did you visit?
I have not been out of the US since November 2000.. Omg 15+ years... I was a kid when I went to Hong Kong and Guangdong province in China where my family is from. I also have not been out of state.. The farthest I've been is to the San Diego so that's the closest I've been almost out of the country haha.

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
A better job! More money! A pipe dream for David and I to have our very own place...

Go to more places? Go hike more, go up SF more and check out places I've haven't been to.

Finally go out of the country especially to Japan (one of my biggest wants) and Hong Kong (first place I went to, only time I went out of the country)

David would love to visit Japan as well and his paternal grandfather was an orphan from Hong Kong.

7. What date from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Besides my birthday where I went to SF and had a good time. 12/13 easy to remember.. Haha the year before it was 12/13/14

Um Halloween was cool I actually did something on Halloween this year. Went to the Final Fantasy: A New World concert!

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I guess just being more active on the Internet and getting into Pokemon collecting.

Honestly, I can't really think of anything big. It's getting near a year and half at my current job and I got a raise.

9. What was your biggest failure?
Not making more money as in not having a better job or going back to school and studying. I was hoping that Raymond and Trent could get me into G... If only I told Trent I was interested... Had no idea someone with minimal qualifications like Raymond can get the job. Even though the the shifts suck because every month you have a new schedule and work odd hours. But the money and it's the Big G. Free food and yeah all that good stuff.

It seems like this year I just concentrated on my hobbies instead of going back to school.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
I missed a few days of work early this year when I had a nasty cold/flu... Also had UTI problems for the first time >_>

I tripped badly on the way to work.. I had to wear a knee brace. So I was limping pretty badly for some days. It would hurt to sit down and bend over.

I also went to the ER for the first time. Nothing serious.. The hospital sucks so the waiting time tool hours and I didn't get treated but the EKG test they ran was fine. But it was very scary when I loss consciousness and blacked out. I guess I was too dehydrated after running to the bus stop or something with my body since I wasn't eating right and feeling no motivation during that time.

Luckily I don't get sick during summer or fall...

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Lots of stuff. I can't pick for Pokemon. I love it all.

12. Whose behavior merited celebrating.
Bernie Sanders

13. Whose behavior made you appalled?
The GOP. A few Pokemon sellers/collectors on Facebook

14. Where did most of your money go?
Pokemon and rent...

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Going to Anime Expo, Pokemon anniversary coming up, Pokemon GO annoucement, Pokemon Worlds announcement in SF coming this year!

things I'm excited for this year...

Anime Expo's 25th anniversary! (David bought a pass so he's going for the first time along with a Canadian friend)
Pokemon World's in SF

Oh yeah, I am hopeful things work out and I somehow get my foot in at a contractor/vendor at The Big G. I could really use the money to go to Japan finally and travel more. I want to make progress in life cuz this year is my zodiac year... I will be in my mid 20s soon. Gosh where has the time gone. I wish I was 22 again.

Anyways, I'll try to LJ more now.

ah! I think you forgot to change question 11 response XD;;;

But yeahhh traveling is sooooo expensive so it's understandable imo to not have gone anywhere in a long time. You save so much by just staying home! xD For me I just ended up going to a lot of places (seattle, boston, china, taiwan a few times, various places in michigan, chicago a few times, etc) in just the past 5 years, well especially during 2008-2010 because of the limbo I went through not having a job set for me post-undergraduate college... a lot of things happened before I came here to the state of california x_x;

I'm sure good things will happen, and really hope you can come to G!!!!!! Together we will make it awesome yeah :D

lol I edited it right after I posted it. I kept the answer in cuz I really wasn't sure what my best purchase was... nothing really rare but maybe the Dittochu?

i guess thats why my family doesn't travel. they had to pay for this house for all these years (paid it off in 2014 iirc) and college expenses for my sister and I. times were tough after the dot com boom. parents are like bush shit when you mention the Bush years hahaha. x_x besides there are plenty of things do here: hiking, cool places to shop/eat, fun events.

but yes I gone to more places in CA after I became an adult. just random trips like to cons and such. really hoping this is the year of great things! pls... america.. don't fail me too
