Let’s start the 2013 recap with a little survey I found on tumblr. I quite liked it and decided it’s a good way to end 2013 and make myself think about the last year a bit. This will only be in english, I hope that’s okay with my German readers, tomorrow there will be a not so short summery of the year seasons with some picture and on the weekend I will make my own Top 5 outfits from last year and also present you my favorite outfits from other bloggers.
back on 2013
What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before?
wrote a letter to a celebrity, you are all free to guess to whom.
Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more
for next year?
didn't had any, if I make just one for next year, it will be: Take
Did anyone close to you give birth?
I'd say fortunately not.
Did anyone close to you die?
What countries did you visit?
the UK, apart from Germany where I obviously live.
What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013
time in London, new Sherlock episode (hahaha the next two weeks will
be insane), slutty sex.
What dates from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
GISHWHES week in August, where I learned that I can achieve much more
than I though I was capable of & also realized that with a bunch
of abnorsome people changing the world actually is possible. Plus
London in November, where I met the most bad ass babes. Das Bonprinx
Plus Size Camp in march where I not only met awesome bloggers but
made some true friends and the day Björn moved to Berlin, though
more in a negative way...
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
a internship, that I absolutely love.
What was your biggest failure?
much as I felt bad about spending the better part of my year doing
nothing at all, there is actually nothing I regret. If I did one big
mistake, it was letting my iPad fall down two times.
Did you suffer illness or injury?
but a slight cold.
What was the best thing you bought?
my flight to London? Maybe the Sherlock DVD... I actually have no
clue, I think my flight to London was the most expensive buy. Apart
from some video games and clothes...
Whose behaviour merited celebration?
met quite a lot of people who cheered me up so many times this year,
I'd wish I could all give them a mayor big hug and bake everyone a
Whose behaviour made you appalled?
is a certain someone I know for ages and well..I don't want to get
into this any deeper.
Where did most of your money go?
and fandom stuff probably.
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Benedict Cumberbatch? I actually early on in the year came back to
being a massive fangirl. I always enjoyed throwing myself at things
wholeheartly, but I hadn't had a mayor fandom crush for some years
now. Since Sherlock and my love for Benedict I am back into business
with every fiber of my being.
What song will always remind you of 2013?
Compared to this time last year, are you: (a) happier or sadder? (b)
thinner or fatter? (c) richer or poorer?
happier. Stayed the same I guess, maybe a bit fatter. I do think
richer, but that would be just a few pennies.
What do you wish you’d done more of?
risks. Practicing my design skills, going to concerts, traveling,
reading fashion blogs.
What do you wish you’d done less of?
I am not going to say stuff like tumblr or reading fanfiction, which
obvisously is a big time killer, but I enjoyed it to much to regret
it. But killing time by just doing nonsense, like not evening having
a good tumblr session but just clicking back and forth from facebook
to twitter to tumblr and stuff.
How did you spend Christmas?
my family, very chilled and lovely at home.
Did you fall in love in 2013?
give my heart away quite easily, but nope I didn't fell in love in
the usual sense of using that expression.
What was your favourite TV program?
eyebrows* Well Sherlock? Though this wasn't from 2013, I also
discovered my love for Supernatural and Game of Thrones.
Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
usually don't hate people. I probably hate things they do or get
upset about that, but well no I don't have an answer for this.
What was the best book you read?
am not even sure if I read a prober book, like a real one, exept from
Harry Potter once again. So I say “A Cure for Boredom” which was
the first prober Sherlock fanfic I read.
What was your greatest musical discovery?
I listened to Blood Lines over and over and over again, such a great
What did you want and get?
What did you want and not get?
What was your favourite film of this year?
Star Trek into Darkness and Thor The Dark World.
What one thing made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
twitter and the people I met there.
How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2013?
trying to find myself.
What kept you sane?
the internet? Though it also was part of what drove me insane
sometimes. Best friends and family of cause.
Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
What political issue stirred you the most?
learned a lot about equality, feminism and fat acceptance.
Who did you miss?
best friend after he moved away, two of my best girl friends when
they went abroad.
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013.
don't always get what you want but certainly it's what what you need.
