I was going to continue with my practice of setting 101 goals for the new year, but then I can't remember if I clicked "revert to previous draft" when I opened this page or not, so, my goal for the year is...accomplish something.

I did write about my media highlights and favorite music of 2015.

Goals actually accomplished in 2015:

  • I was able to show [livejournal.com profile] whomp around San Francisco, and I also reconnected with many relatives on both sides of my family! I'm a really social person, and it was great to see and talk with them.

  • With the family, I returned to Las Vegas and Puerto Rico. New places we visited included Yosemite and Mammoth, other towns in Gold Country, Also did more local tourism, including the Renaissance Fair at Casa de Fruta. All the hyperlinks in this paragraph link to pictures!

  • I did get to speak Spanish more, especially in Puerto Rico, and I used Japanese a little at work (although, when one customer asked me a question in Japanese, I answered in Spanish. I corrected myself and she was fine with it, but yeah). I even had a simple conversation in Norwegian! Although I can't say more because we can't post about specific customers on the internet. Even a few phrases of Tagalog helped once. I am now on over 80 days of practicing Gaeilge and Norsk on Duolingo.

  • Finally visited New People when we went to a festival in Japantown. My mom bought me this Omocat sweater...partly because I forgot to wear warm enough clothing for that windy day...

  • I did start lifting 20-pound free weights, and while I didn't get to 25-pound, I did move from 10 reps to 15 reps over the course of the year.

  • I bought some nice and often useful clothes (many via work discount), as well as 2 CDs, nice yearly agendas (classic art for 2015, and a slim Star Wars one with Rey and BB-8 on the cover for 2016 through 2017), and the Universal classic Horror DVD set. Also received a new photo camera and mini-tripod prior to our Las Vegas trip.

  • I did read at least one book from every continent except Antarctica, but I think that's less of a feat because diverse selection is pretty much my general taste when I go to the libraries here. Also read five non-fiction books, as well as five books published in 2015. Now I want to read more from before 1900.


I think I'll just dump my list of TV watched from October through December here. So much I still have to catch up on...
the episodes )

AT FIRST IT WAS FORTITUDE GOING SURPRISE BONKERS AND KIND OF RIDIC BUT STILL. EMOTIONS! ON TO SEASON 2 NEXT YEAR!

AND THEN IT WAS SEEING MY LETTER ANSWERED IN THE FADE OUT #5



AND NOW THE STAR WARS TRAILER THAT FINALLY CONVERTED MY RESERVED ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE FILM (still too bad how JJ. ended up ultimately doing Star Trek low for it tho)

I HAD THOUGHT MY DAYS OF GOING INTO CAPSLOCK SPIRALS OVER THINGS WERE OVER

I WAS WRONG

lol my brother's calling me a hipster for not wanting to watch Game of Thrones anymore

couldn't really get into the Daredevil pilot (well cast but...I dunno. seems like close to the Bendis-Maleev stories I really liked but not quite there), but I started Fortitude today and now I'm on...episode 4. Strange because most people think the later is slow and it's usually hard for me to stick with murder mystery TV becausthey aren't contained like movies. But this show starts out with a polar bear eating a dude! Interest captured right there.
