Kate
01. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?

I learned to ride a motorcycle!


02. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I can't remember if I made any last year, but I definitely didn't keep them if I did. This year, I'm going to try to swear less, at least for the month of January.


03. Did someone close to you give birth?

Nope.


04. Did anyone close to you die?

No, thank goodness :)


05. Where did you go on vacation?

No vacations. I guess that balances out the four that I took in 2009.


06. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?

Money, solid relationships, self-discipline


07. What days are particularly memorable from 2010?

- The night we stayed up all night and watched with 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' twice.

- The night my neighbor and the womanizer came over and the long, boring stories that followed.

- The day I met Matt and we stayed up talking until like 7:00 in the morning.

- The night Chris and Tara and I went home with those weird guys and I drunkenly tried to play dinosaur chess and Chris played drums at like 3:00 in the morning.

- The 4th of July (falling asleep in my car and having that cop wake me up, the awesome fire show where Chris's head got lit on fire, watching Chris and Tyler dance to Katy Perry at that gay bar)

- Seeing Rob Zombie for the first time (finally)!

- Getting dumped through Facebook IM and the weekend that followed (talking to Daniel for the first time in months, going to the freak show, struggling with my motorcycle course)

- The day of Ken's birthday party, when my friends texted me and said that they didn't want to be friends anymore (made a new friend that night - good timing, I guess).

- The night I forced Mike to listen to the Broken Bells album like four times in a row.

- Going to the drag show with Ken, then taking pictures of bums when I was drunk and waiting for a ride.

- The epic dance party I had with Courtney, and all of the amazing conversations we had when we were just sitting around doing nothing.

- The night that Ken and I had a conversation so intense that I literally got in my car and started yelling because I was so frustrated.

- Halloween weekend

- Projectile vomiting in the parking lot of the Northgate Mall on Black Friday (sober, ugh!)

- My bday party, and the awesome, amazing people who showed up.

- The adventures we had while Jessica was in town (the Glaude show, dancing all night at Trinity, NYE)


08. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year?

Getting my motorcycle endorsement, keeping my job


09. What was your biggest failure(s)?

Several important relationships went straight down the toilet.


10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Not really. I've been lucky.


11. What was the best thing you bought?

My bike! I just need to get it running again!


12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

Courtney's. She's taught me a lot this year about love and patience. I am very lucky to have a friend like her.


13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Oddly enough, the same person I put here last year could go in this spot for an entirely different reason. There were a couple of people who acted very poorly and definitely made me feel that way. I don't need to name names.


14. Where did most of your money go?

Gas, food, bills. I didn't buy too much stuff.


15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

Ummm... nada, that I recall.


16. What song will always remind you of 2010?

'Grenade' by Bruno Mars


17. Compared to this time last year, are you

i. happier or sadder? Sadder. It was kind of a rough year.

ii. thinner or fatter? Eh, about the same, I think.

iii. richer or poorer? Poorer. Way poorer.


18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

Making new friends


19. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Letting other people affect me.


20. How did you spend Christmas?

On Christmas Eve, I went to Leslie's family party, then hung out with Chris and Arron. On Christmas Day, I went to my parents' house and owned everyone at Taboo and Apples to Apples, then went to a punk show with Jess.


21. Did you fall in love in 2010?

I fell in and out of 'like' a couple times.


22. How many one-night stands?

None. I'm classy, haha :)


23. What was your favorite TV program?

Modern Family, 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Dexter (did I watch too much TV this year?)


24. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?

Hate is a completely wasted emotion. I don't hate anyone... That being said, there are several people that I absolutely loved at this time last year, and I longer care about them anymore.


25. What was the best book you read in 2010?

I don't know about a specific book, but I discovered Christopher Moore this year, and I've enjoyed a couple of his novels.


26. What was your greatest musical discovery of 2010?

The Black Keys! Awesome!


27. What are your favorite quotes from 2010?

- "I had sex with pie and it was the worst sex I ever had!" - Ken

28. What did you want and not get?

Security and confidence


29. Favorite film of this year?

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World!


30. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

A bunch of friends met me up at Dante's the Friday before my birthday. It was really fun. On my actual birthday, I went to the Glaude show with Megan and Jessica. That was really fun too! It was a good birthday, even though I turned... 26 (dun dun dun).


31. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?

Having better judgment in the character of other people.


32. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010?

It's still hoodies and jeans most of the time. I wear make-up now though, so that's progress towards womanhood, ahahaha!


33. What kept you sane?

Who said I was sane? :)


34. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

Ke$ha!!! Love her!


35. What political issue stirred you the most?

Sigh.


36. Who do you miss?

Katie and Steve.


37. Who was the best new person you met?

I met a couple of amazing people this year. Choosing one is a little hard.


38. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010:

You can only rely on yourself. No matter how much you love someone, you can't expect them to be there for you. Even the most unlikely people can let you down.


39. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

"'Cause they know and so do I

The high road is hard to find

A detour to your new life

Tell all of your friends goodbye."

I didn't have anything to do this weekend so I slept. And slept. Aaaaand slept. I slept for fourteen hours on Friday night and twelve hours on Saturday night, and then napped on and off on Sunday afternoon. Also, Saturday night, I drank, and took Nyquil, two Benadryl, and a Topomax.

This worries me.

When I was younger I was quite depressed, and I slept a lot. I slept in school. I slept after school. I slept all the time. I would like to think that I can deal with things better now, but I've been so down for these past couple of weeks, and when it all kind of culminated in a weekend alone I slept it away. Fml.

A lesson I should have learned much sooner in life: [Jul. 6th, 2009|02:11 pm]
Kate
People will take as much as you will give them. And then some.

That whole 'give someone an inch and they'll take a mile' thing is true. So true.

Even people who are innately good will keep taking if you keep giving, and not always give back. I know I have more money than my friends. You know why? I work harder. I've been working full time at the same company for over 4.5 years. I don't work whenever is convenient, I don't call in sick, I don't spend all day at work doing nothing; I work my ass off.

Yet somehow my friends feel justified in taking advantage of me because I have more money, even though I earned every damn dollar while they were out there enjoying the sun, staying out late, and wasting away the little money that they did earn.

Fuck that. The Bank of Kate is now closed.

I am going to be in Portland for the North American Organic Brewer's Festival at Overlook Park on Saturday.

My friend(s?) and I plan to go out afterward and stay in the area. Unfortunately, I don't have any friends in the area, and don't know it well. We're going to stay in a motel, so I'm not worried about crashing somewhere, but I don't know where to kick it!

What are some fun, chill bars in the area? Do YOU want to hang out?

Oh, and something rad:


This is Abbey and me (and some random people) with Dexter and Noodles from The Offspring. And look! I'm not crying or screaming, "I LOVE YOU DEXTER!!!" or anything!

A follow up to my rant about men (sorta) [Jun. 16th, 2009|12:35 am]
Kate
So at Ryan's birthday party on Saturday, I met this super cute guy. We flirted and drank, and eventually ended up making out.

I stumbled onto his myspace page the next day (I saw his name on the invite list), and come to find out he's got a girlfriend and a kid.

Awesome.

So today, I decided to text this other guy that I met at the Spunky Monkey on Friday night. He came right over to Tara when I was out of the room and told her that he thought I was very pretty, and wasn't hesitant to tell me at all. I was a bit thrown off guard and probably came off a bit abrasive. In my text message, I apologized and said that I'm a bit shy. He said that I was the LAST person he expected to hear from, but he was glad that I texted.

Fast-forward a few hours. Tara and I are at a movie and he texts me again.

Dude: How much longer? I wanna see your fine ass
(Note: This already makes me feel a little awkward but I know how some guys can be through text).
Me: Lol. It's not gonna be tonight. Tara and i both need to work in the morning.
Dude: Are you really conservative or what?
Me: Kinda. More cautious than conservative.
Dude (like a half hour later): Do you have any pictures of that big ass of yours, saved to your phone?
Dude: That was meant in a good way. And mind you, i'm a little drunk. So excuse me.
Dude: Here we go. I just fucked it up once again...

I have yet to respond to these last three texts. I really don't even know what to say. I just said that I was cautious, and you ask me to send you pictures of my ass? Wtf?

Now I got a lot of flack for that last entry about guys, mostly from girls saying that they like relationships that are simply sexual.

Fine. I can accept that. Hell, I tried that. Granted, it didn't work out well, but the blame is shared. I'm just sick of men assuming that all women are that way, and that we don't deserve to be treated with respect. Even one-night stands can come from a respectful place with a mutual understanding. I am not a fucking Stepford robot, so please stop assuming that I'm happy to do whatever pleases you.

I hate sleeping alone. [Jun. 13th, 2009|11:46 am]
Kate
So last night, pretty late, I crawl into bed and pass out pretty quickly. I assume I was in the middle of a dream when I started to half wake up. I opened my eyes and saw this man standing by my door. I screamed and froze for a sec, then reached over to turn on my lamp and when I looked back, he was gone.

I didn't hear any movement, like he was hiding in my room, and everything was blurry because I took my contact lenses out. Odd, because the man was quite clear.

I sat there for a few minutes, frozen and shaking, with my heart trying to pound its way out of my chest, as I tried to process what just happened.

It didn't seem like I woke anyone up with that scream.

I finally figured out that he must have been a dream within a dream, and my scream (whether it happened in real life or just within the dream I'm not sure), must have woken me up.

Still, it's nights like that when you really wish that you had someone beside you to curl up in the crook of their arm and help you feel warm and safe. I grabbed my stupid stuffed duck, but obviously it was a poor substitute.

Edit: Leslie is convinced that it was a ghost. Lol.

What's wrong with our generation? How come when you meet a guy and find him even remotely attractive he assumes you'll immediately hop on his dick? And worse still, how come half of the girls I know actually would do it?

Is it our parents' fault? We grow up hearing these fairytales about meeting 'the one' but then we watched our parents divorce or suffer in loveless relationships. Even people that are lucky enough have happy parents know that it's not the norm.

Is it women's empowerment? Did the sexual revolution inadvertently eradicate things like chivalry and romance?

Is it the adult film industry? Do guys these days watch so much porn that they really think that all women want to be treated that way? "Hello, let's fuck. Of course you can jizz in my eye!" Ro-fucking-mantic. Don't they understand that it's just a movie? Just like an action movie or a horror flick - it's not real life. I know it's easier to just go home and jerk off if some girl doesn't immediately start licking your balls, but isn't it worth the work sometimes?

Is it technology? Does saying something through text make it somehow more acceptable than if you were saying it to their face? Does meeting someone off the internet eliminate the need to forage an actual relationship of any sort before sliding beneath the sheets? (I'm not necessarily talking commitment here; I'm just talking about not fucking a stranger.)

I hate the men who call themselves 'nice guys,' because you know what? In my experience, they're really not all that nice. They're just bitter. Just because they're not overt pricks doesn't mean that they actually care any more than the rest of the douche bags (douche BARGES, actually). It probably just means that they're getting less play than their asshole friends. You think you're nice? Don't tell me - show me. Stop plotting to get in my pants and actually get to know me. I'm dope as fuck, and if you don't think so, you shouldn't get to sleep with me anyway.

I'm sick of meeting someone and then when I don't instantly put out, I never hear from them again, or they call at fucking midnight three weeks later. Did you ever see movies or TV shows where guys took girls on dates? Is that unheard of now? I can't remember the last time I went on an actual DATE. We make so many excuses for guys, 'oh the economy is bad,' 'oh he's just so busy with work,' but the bottom line is that if a guy is interested, he should put in the effort. Dating can be cheap - most of us aren't that fussy, but men are just too goddamn lazy. It's easier to just find someone else who'll put out.

And then there's the guys who just randomly disappear or do you dirty without explanation. So many guys these days are just so weak and dishonest. Is it that hard to grow a pair and speak your mind? Why do you think we can't handle the truth? Are you THAT scared of our reaction? I keep meeting these seemingly decent guys, and then find out that they're fooling around on their wives or girlfriends, talking shit about their exes, or just lying about stupid crap. It's disgusting and frustrating.

I know people are gonna read this and just think I'm some kind of crazy emo prude, but fuck 'em - I'm awesome.

Today would have been starkravingfag's birthday. Sad day :(

I want to go out and have fun tonight, but I don't think any of my usual crowd is around. Same old same old, I guess. I will eventually expand my group of friends! I added Tara and Mitch a few months ago. That's a good start, I suppose. Well, at least Tara was a good addition. I love her so much it's not even funny. Mitch is good times, but possibly pretty toxic.

Denny brought us all flowers at work today. He grew them himself. He's such a sweetheart. He calls me almost daily to ask me for dating advice and to update me on how things are going. Little does he know that I'm like the WORST person to ask for advice, but that's okay. We bond, haha. He took Tara and me out for dinner after Crystal's wedding.

Um, what else is new... I'm getting addicted to 30Rock. I've been looking for stuff to watch until the new season of Dexter starts. <3 Dexterrrr! If I ever have a son, I'll probably name him Dexter Danger (which I was going to do before I got obsessed with the TV show - Dexter is for Dexter Holland from The Offspring... Danger because who wouldn't like to say that their middle name is Danger?!).
