This has been one helluva crazy year. Some good things have happened. Some bad things. It's the year I got to keep my room as my own rather than switching it out yet again. The year my sister almost managed to break it off with her asshole boyfriend, only to decide she couldn't do it. The year I got close to my older sister again, getting to hang out with her and my niece all the time. :D And the year that my mom had to move out to Michigan for a couple weeks to take care of my Grandma (who's doing better now) and we had to rely on my Dad for groceries and the like (*snort*).

But it's also the year I finally got my learner's permit and have started driving. And that my best friend and her boyfriend have been talking about buying a house of their own. I wrote 24 stories (40 something if you count drabbles) and a lot were over 1k words which just blows my mind. Still a die hard Sam/Gabriel OTPer even if it seems most of my fave authors have moved on to my Anti-OTP or other fandoms. And I even discovered a love of Clark/Lex (Smallville) and Cherik (X-Men: First Class) and even some McFassy for the RPS side of it.

Overall, I think it's been a good year. It could have been better (especially if my little sister could have finally thrown her bf to the curb for the really crappy things he did) and it could have been worse (still got a roof over our heads, relatively in good health). I've got family and friends around and I'm pretty thankful for it. :D

I hope that everyone has a wonderful New Year. Especially those of you who might have had it rough in 2011.

Happy New Year

This year has had its upsides and downsides. This is the year that I started writing fanfiction. It's the year that Sam/Gabriel went from my guilty pleasure pairing to my OTP (though Sam/Dean is still made of teh awesome). It's the year I took my first "foreign language" class that I actually enjoyed and may have learned something in (ASL). And it's the year that I made great new friends online (you know who you are :D). The year I turned 21 and went to my first bar, had my first beer and washington apple. Realized that I can't stand vodka, but enjoy whiskey. And the year I found out that margaritas are freakin' awesome.

It's also the year where rooms got switched around and family drama happened nearly every week. The year we got evacuated to a hotel that doesn't allow pets and the year that my older sister's best friend is having a rough time. The year my friends and I haven't seen as much of each other as we used to, now that we're all getting older and they've got jobs and responsibility and I seem to be at home all the time.

But, really, this year was still a pretty good one. Actually getting to be a part of a fandom that's so awesome and crazy as Supernatural, getting to talk to people who've been there since day one, just like my bestie and me, is all so amazing and I can't even tell you. And it's all so much fun, even if we could do without some all of the wank and character bashing.

For the most part, I think I had an enjoyable year and I really hope that all of you have had a great year. And for those of you that didn't, I hope you have a happy new year, and that things get better! <3<3<3
