I read today's prompt. And I am beginning to feel like I am repeating myself. I feel like I keep being asked the same question from different angles to really over-analyze my year. And I am bored with it. And I already think too much and analyze the things I could of, would of, should of from so many angles. And then I feel like I am still stuck in the past, in this darker place where I was struggling to get out.
So, I am not answering anymore Reverb10 prompts in the next 11 days unless they feel really different and I don't think the issue has already been covered.
Last year's prompts were different. They asked what I thought was the year's best laugh, best website, best discovered band, etc. I liked looking back over the year at all of the positive stuff (maybe I just feel like this was a more negative year because of one significant event?). I was looking more for something like that this year.
Here are a few things (and a person!) that I do want to give a shout out to:
1. Best new person in your life in 2010? She-ra hands down. She helped the summer hours fly by in our cubicles, is great for advice, and (inadvertently) crashed a wake with me.
2. Best discovered song of 2010? MSTRKRFT "Heartbreaker." I ♥ this song.
3. Best discovered band of 2010? The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. "Heads will roll" opened the door for me to this group and I have yet to be disappointed.
4.Best discovered website of 2010? This is a tie. Grooveshark is amazing. I love that I can search any word in the world and find a playlist named that. This then leads me to discovering lots of new music. Stumbledupon is also absolutely awesome and keeps me on top of penguin-awesome links to share with my friends.
5.Best purchase of 2010? My car is pretty awesome. Other than my car, I spent a lot of mad money on shoes again this year. I am not upset with that at all.
6.Best discovered wine of 2010? Little Penguin. Seriously, this stuff is amazing. Plus the corks have little penguin feet. I am collecting them.
7.Best read book of 2010? Another tie and neither book is written in 2010. Phillip K Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep was fabulous. As was Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald. I am also reading Evelyn Waugh's A Handful of Dust right now and it has quickly won my heart.
8.Best discovered television show of 2010? Mad Men. After hearing so much, I downloaded the first few seasons and haven't looked back.
