2017 in Review

On a scale of 1 to 10: How was your year?
Like last year, I'd say approximately an 8. Still in love with my boyfriend and happy to live with him once more. Got cute kitties. The job is still great. But I could have achieved more...

Lost or gained weight?
Same as last year: I stayed the same although I intended to lose some

Hair longer or shorter?
Longer, I've not had it cut since ages!

More nearsighted or farsighted?
Again the same as last year: Not more nearsighted (seems like the value usually stayes fixed between 25 and 45) but my corneal irregularities have grown a bit. Also, of note: I tend to buy glasses at the end of the year. 

More money or less?
More money. I love my job!

Spent more or less?
More. I spent a bunch on the kittens of doom but they are worth every cent! Next year I will have to save some moolah for a big vacation!

Most stupid plan?
No stupid plans this year. Maybe heading alone to a concert could count as stupid, but it was not!

Most dangerous deed?
Preparing a presentation in the early morning hours before it was held to an international audience. And my boss...

Most expensive buy?
The kittens. And their belongings...

Most delicious food?
We tried out lot of new things as usual and most of our cooking is the bomb! I'd say that this year, our pulled pork from the slow cooker wins the award.

Most impressive book?
I'm full into the Harry Dresden series which is just great!

Most touching movie?
Thor - Ragnarok! The best comic adadtation ever! Finally a movie where Thor is not stuck up your butt and the whole movie is like a really funny drug trip. Loved it!

Best series?
Last year it was Jessica Jones, this year the spin off "Luke Cage". Watching this series which mainly has black characters opened my eyes again how white washed main stream media are. Plus, the story line is cool!

Best CD?
Do they still sell these? Korn - The Serenity of Suffering. Came out in 2016, but this year I got hooked!

Best concert?
Aurelio Voltaire in Frankfurt. Went there on a whim alone and had so much fun!

Most time spend with...?
More thinking and watching than active stuff. I want to change that next year though!

Best time spend with...?
My boyfriend. As last year. And the year before. And the year before that...

Predominant feeling in 2017?
Happiness. I have amazing friends and family!

Three things I could have missed?

Most important thing I wanted to convince somebody off?
Keep me in this job, I'm good at it!

Nope nothing. I don't play

More fitness or less?
Less. But I went to the gym again and my sour muscles tell me it will be better again!

How often were you sick?

Word of the year?
Nothing comes to my mind.

Non-word of the year?
