But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

"All By Myself", I know it's an old one, but it kinda expresses my year in a way.

I'm trapped inside my mind
beneath these piles of stinking life
you use this abuse to keep me conquered
you're so absurdly common

vacant faces
brainless strangers

sputtering, stuttering insect language
I'm the creature you created
everyday i grow jaded
calloused and exasperated

if I'll never be loved
then I'll be hated

I'm one of the
freaks, the fagots,
the geeks, the savages,
rogues, rebels, dissident devils,
artists, martyrs, infidels ...

do we sit still
under attack?

or do we start pushing back?

never back up
never back down

& FIGHT.

RISE
REBEL
RESIST

RISE
REBEL
MAKE A FIST
RESIST

I'm human pollution
I covet retribution
I'm just a big mistake
a defect you can subjugate

your ridicule is just typical antics
spineless, mindless, tragic, fanatic

puritan, bigot
lunatic, hypocrite

To save my soul from disaster
self-destruction could be the answer

if I'll never be loved
then I'll be hated

I'm one of the
freaks, the fagots,
the geeks, the savages,
rogues, rebels, dissident devils,
artists, martyrs, infidels ...

do we sit still
under attack?

2011 Retrospective Survey




1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
Not much if I’m honest, and the smaller things are too small to remember. I guess I could come up with a lot of small things, but there not really interesting.

2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Nope, I can’t even remember what they are. I do remember that I failed within the first month. I have a few ideas on what my New Year’s resolutions. Although I’m mainly just using the whole “new year’s resolutions” thing to put it off until later.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Not that I’m aware of. I believe people in the family have give birth although I’m not very close to them.

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Preferably a job or an apprenticeship in I.C.T would be nice.

7. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
My birthday as it was my 18th. This meant I was legally allowed to drink within the UK. Didn’t plan on doing anything for my birthday as I never really liked the idea of using an excuse to influence others to do things they don’t want to do. I don’t mind when it’s other people’s birthdays, but when it’s mine... I’m not the greatest fan of being the centre of attention. I do like it, but I get a bit uncomfortable. Love/Hate etc... Well, because it was my 18th, people though it was silly that I wasn’t doing anything and my friends and family threw me a surprise party. Really put things into perspective for me. It also meant I was an adult sooo yea. Big day I’ll never forget I guess.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Actually doing my coursework and getting somewhat of a good grade. Hopefully this’ll continue throughout 2012 and my life.

9. What was your biggest failure?
Gaining more weight due to doing less sport and exercise. This isn’t a problem as of yet, but if I continue the lifestyle I’m living at the minute, it probably will become a problem. Thus the reason to make some “new year’s resolutions” to do more exercise and preferably not eat as much junk food.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Nope, fortunately I’ve been quite healthy this year, hopefully this will continue in 2012.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Can’t really think of anything that I’ve bought which is relevant. I waste my money most of the time going out.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
No one in particular. So I’ll just say everyone around me, as they all have a part in what I do in life.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
Similar to the question above. But I wouldn’t go and blame that on others, so I’ll say my self.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Food and Alcohol. General crap.

15.What made you really really really excited?
Nothing I can think of...

16.What song will forever remind you of 2011?
I can’t really pin point one song for 2011. I guess Pumped up Kicks is a song I’ve been listening to lately a lot.

a) happier or sadder? Neutral.
b) thinner or fatter? Fatter.
c) richer or poorer? Round about the same.

More exercise I guess.

Spend money and useless crap.

At home with the family with an alcoholic beverage. How else?

With friends at a house party. Also with an Alcoholic beverage.

Nope I don’t Fall in love.

Scrubs
One Piece
Merlin
Doctor Who

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?

Lord of the Rings, I don’t read often...

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
Lowkey




28. What did you want and get?
A penguin suit. I was originally going to pay with my own money but because it was cheap my parents paid.

29. What did you want and not get?
I don’t ask for much as there isn’t much I need. But I do mostly get what I ask for seeing as I don’t ask for much and what I do ask for is normally quite cheap. If it isn’t, then I normally pay with my own money.

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
I’m not quite sure of that... Although my favourite film is probably StarDust.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
18, went to town and drunk a lot of alcohol. If you’ve read all of this, I don’t think I need to repeat myself twice. Although thanks for reading this far I guess.

A better laptop or computer would have made things more satisfying seeing as I spent a lot of time on the internet.
