2004, a year in review (stolen from lots and lots of people):1. What did you do in 2004 that you'd never done before?
I started driving by myself.2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't recall making a New Year's resolution. If so, I'm sure it was "Stop playing Solitaire all the time!" And, yes, I kept it, because now I'm playing *Free Cell* all the time (it's different, I swear!). I suppose my new resolution should be "Stop playing Free Cell all the time." Of course, I am playing Free Cell right now...3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My cousin had her baby in January, I believe.4. Did anyone close to you die?
Nope.5. What countries did you visit?
I haven't left America in ages.6. What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?
A plan for the future would be nice.7. What dates from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
November 30: OMG no more KenJen!! ::dies::8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Passing my driving test and managing to avoid major accidents thus far.9. What was your biggest failure?
Um...? I'm not sure. I don't think I had any giant failures this year.10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Well, at the beginning of the year I was still recovering from my terrible leg infection of unknown origin. Other than that, I've only had normal colds every so often.11. What was the best thing you bought?
Er? I can't recall any major purchases I made this year... Just DVDs, CDs, and books. Oh! Probably "Mr. Midshipman Hornblower," because it FINALLY got me started on the series.12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
My brother, for behaving himself in the car.13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
A few of the people on A-Team.14. Where did most of your money go?
See 11)... DVDs, CDs, and books.15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Not much, actually. I guess I was excited about PoA. Oh, and of course I was excited about meeting katwm80
(ack, I still need to buy her present!). Currently, I am very very excited about the RotK extended edition.16. What song will always remind you of 2004?
I am drawing a blank... I really cannot think of one.17. Compared to this time last year, are you:

I wish I had talked to people more.19. What do you wish you'd done less of?
Less sitting around and doing nothing.20. How will you be spending Christmas?

No, I can't say that I did.23. How many one-night stands?
None.24. What was your favourite TV program?

Well, there are some people that I don't like as much this year as I did last year. I can't say that there is anybody that I hate, though.26. What was the best book you read?
Probably "Lieutenant Hornblower." I also read a lot of Dumas this year, which was of course excellent.27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Maurice Jarre. Okay, that definitely doesn't count as a "discovery," but this year was when I first bought a CD with his music on it.28. What did you want and get?
A ton of books.29. What did you want and not get?
Horatio Hornblower DVD set. Hopefully, that will change on Christmas... ::crosses fingers::30. What was your favourite film of this year?
My favourite film that I saw in theatres this year? RotK. However, it didn't actually come out this year, so I know it doesn't count. I'm not sure if I really have a favourite film this year. I did enjoy "Napoleon Dynamite" a lot. Actually, I'm surprised that I don't seem to have any Napoleon fans on my f-list...31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I had a party and forced people to watch TTT because I am evil. Oh, and I made them watch the ABC special where Dom rips of Billy's chest hair. My friends love me. I turned sixteen.32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
More KenJen? More LotR? I don't know, really... All good things have to come to and end, right?33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2004?
A few more colours (expanding beyond blue), way too many shopping sprees at the Disney store. Which reminds me! I bought the most fantastic shirt ever yesterday. It's a Camp Wanahakaloogi shirt. I love it. I am wearing it tomorrow.34. What kept you sane?
Not much.35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

I don't think I really met any new people this year, come to think of it.39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004.
It's okay to be a geek.40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"Maybe in you I'll believe, maybe I'll believe in you." Just kidding. That doesn't have anything to do with my year. I've just been listening to it repeatedly over the past three weeks.
