- Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
This has been a quiet year. I haven't really done much new this year.
Nope. Not even close. As for what my resolutions will be for next year, that's another post.
For the first time since I moved to Dallas, I did not go to a funeral this year. However, there's yet time for my grandma to kick the bucket this year.
What country is that? Iowa? Have I conquered Iowa yet?
A brand new car.
2012 was a forgettable year.
I avoided achievement.
I couldn't make myself do anything.
I spent most of my money on accidents.
Excitement is escaping me.
I don't think this year will have a song.
i. happier or sadder? Neither, really.
ii. thinner or fatter? About the same.
iii. richer or poorer? About the same.
Anhedonia means never having fun again.
I didn't do much. Perhaps I should have done less nothing.
The same way I always spend New Year's.
This kind of thing does not happen to me.
This kind of thing really does not happen to me.
I didn't watch much new television this year. My Little Pony still wins by default.
Hate is a strong word. I don't hate.
I'm going to punt on this one. I'm not ready to talk about that.
I didn't make many musical discoveries.
You can't always get what you want.
And if you try sometimes, you just might find that you can't even get what you need.
Ask me in a few months. I've seen a lot of my stuff.
28. It was a weekday.
We will not be talking about that.
Lots of money spent on therapy.
That's not something that happens to me.
Politics is a distraction to keep you from realizing that you're getting screwed. I don't give a shit anymore.
I didn't have much to miss.
I did not meet new people.
It's likely not even worth trying.
It's been the kind of year nobody writes songs about.
