2005: A Survey

I was going through old post when I stumbled across my year in review survey from 2004.
Since the timing is right, let's see how 2005 stacked up.

1. What did you do in 2005 that you'd never done before? Actually drove during a road trip-- out of state and in a big car.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I don't really remember making one last year, but according to my blog I said I would spend more time with my grandparents. I was very successful in seeing my mother's parents a lot. I started keeping my car in their garage and saw them once or twice a month when I picked it up.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Nope.

4. Did anyone close to you die? Thankfully no.

5. What countries did you visit? none

6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005? I'll stick with last year's answer-- a good date!

7. What date from 2005 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? July 27th....the date of my review and promotion.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? I'll stick with last year's answer here too-- career advancement.

9. What was your biggest failure? Hmmmm, I hope there weren't any in 2005.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury? Nothing serious, but I did fall out of a bus and get banged up when I tripped on a curb.

11. What was the best thing you bought? Tickets to see Hootie in Baltimore...and a shirt that said "Blondes tease, brunettes please"

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? I dunno…

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? Ditto from last year....I’d rather not say in such a public forum, lol.
