11. What was the best thing you bought? My ipod!

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? Cj. I’m such a lucky girl to have him.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? My friend Debra. She will be discussed in later posts & I plan on distancing myself more & more from her this year.

14. Where did most of your money go? Buying the condo. But it was for the best & a great investment! =)

33. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? (Love the word “Fancy”) I think Ryan Reynolds is hot!

35. Who did you miss? My friend Danielle. I rarely see her.

36. Who was the best new person you met? Cj & all his Kickass friends.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010. You can’t forget your family. They will always be there for you no matter what happens & will help you out if they can. Also you can’t change the past so you have to live the present.

38. What do you want to happen in 2011? I want to travel more & build on my relationships with people for the better.

Goodbye 2010!! =) Thank you Wandering Thoughts of a Scientific Housewife for the survey!! =)

CJ sounds like he's such a great guy, a total keeper.

I've had my share of friend problems in the past. My advice to you as far as bad friends go is to just cut them off and move on. Life is too short to keep people in your life that don't make your life better.

I hope you have an amazing 2011 Melanie!
