Before I start on my super long new year's post that I'm going to post when the clock strikes 12 to New Year's Day, I thought I'd give a little teaser/ quiz sort of think to refresh my memory on the things that have happened this year. 

1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? 
Gosh this is difficult - my memory doesn't stretch that far to cover the entire year. This is probably going to be the more recent events. Cried for an artiste, Laugh till I cried (yes, I do laugh a lot, but I've never laughed to this extent till this year), Sleepover at somewhere other than relative's, Made an announcement in front of RGS, Put on braces, Have so much fun. Really, 2011 was a great year. Anyway, I can't think of anymore so yeap.
2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year? 
I think my New Year's resolution was to work harder - to study a lot. I don't think I've kept it very much, but I did try my best I guess. Yes, I'd definitely would! And I will stick to it (fat hope! xD)
3. Did anyone close to you give birth? 
My cousin Karen. I'm not really close to her, but we're relatives, so we're close by blood I guess!
4. Did anyone close to you die? 
Fortunately, no.
5. What countries did you visit? 
None, if you don't know me by now, I hate travelling! Oh wait, we went to Batam during our Learning Journey. Does that count?
6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
A bit more free time, I guess (:

September 1 (with reasons confidential), November 1 (drama nite!), November 9 (last day of sec two). That's about it (:
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? 
Hacing the guts to take on bigger responsibilities. And definitely campaigning for Waddle Vice Capt, and eventually getting the position (':

Food (I'm such a glutton but I don't really care, food really brings about pleasure for myself)
15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? 
The wonderful doors of opportunities that opened this year. And definitely Drama Nite. I mean, staging a musical in front of the lower sec cohort was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Oh yes, and hearing George Watsky in J8's toilet. Brought me to tears.
16. What song/album will always remind you of 2011? 
Pumped up kicks MIXTAPE  by George Watsky, yes not Foster the People! It's exciting but scary.
