First of all, thank you so much everyone for the birthday wishes! I had a pleasant birthday. I managed to convince my coworkers (distinguished professors, office staff, and graduate students alike) to dance for me. It was the only way I would let them sing Happy Birthday (I hate when people sing Happy Birthday at me because it makes me so, so uncomfortable). The department chair gave me three different bars of fancy dark chocolate and my officemates bought me a cake, which was so, so tasty. I got a hugs and well wishes and random text messages throughout the day and then I went home last night to finish my final. IT IS SO EXCITING BEING 32 LET ME TELL YOU. Hopefully tonight we will have a proper birthday celebration at the movie theatre seeing DMB in 3D. We have to go tonight because we have company coming tomorrow night and we won't be able to go and tomorrow is the last day it's showing.

MOVING ON. I'm working on a more elaborate end-of-the-year post in my head, but here are some memes I took from the beautiful, darling [personal profile] mcollinknight.

Looking ahead:

1. Will you be looking for a new job?: Yes. So here's to hoping I find one!

2. Will you be looking for a new relationship?: No.

3. New house?: I'll be moving but I know where I'm moving, so no.

4. What will you do different in ‘10?: I have no idea but I hope I do a lot differently.

5. New Years resolution?: I don't make resolutions.

6. What will you not be doing in ‘10?: It's hard to say. Um...probably...traveling to another country.

7. Any trips planned?: If everything goes as tentatively planned, there might be a lovely cross-country road trip in May.

8. Wedding plans?: No.

9. Major thing on your calender?: One major thing on my calendar but I'm not going to discuss the specifics right now.

10. What can't you wait for?: The Pacific.

11. What would you like to see happen differently?: I want illnesses to go away or be lessened. That'd be awesome.

12. What about yourself will you be changing?: I would just like to start writing again.

15. Will you dress differently this year then you did in 09?: I doubt it. I'm too poor to get new clothes lol (also, where did 13 and 14 go??)

21. Do you expect '10 to be a good year for you?: I don't know. I'd like to say yes. I said 2009 would be a good year. It wasn't. It was better than 2008 (goddamn that year sucked) but it certainly wasn't omgamazing.

29. Will you have someone to kiss at midnight?: My BFF!

30. One wish for '10?: That I start living again.

Very much so. GASP I AM OLD.

Sometimes I do.

Are you satisfied with what you currently have in life?
I won't lie. I'm not.

Have you ever cut class?
God yes.
