I guess the topoc title can be interpretted in any way you want it to. So I'll go first. Personal: Friendship and companionship ended up being my most important value this year. I found this is many different areas, but most significantly happened when @Ruko and @DoggyEars took me in for about a month to get away from my family situation, not to mention everyone else who supported me during that rough period in my life. I had so many friends, both online and offline, willing to help me in many ways, and I'm forever grateful to you guys. Spriting: I've improved a bit in my spritework this year, I would think. I've begun using black in my outlining and learned how to better sprite arms and legs, something that's alluded me for years now. In addition, I think it's easier for me to sprite different hairstyles now, both short and long, and I'm more comfortable making my own sprites instead of just editing official sprites from the games (though I know I have a long way to go with that). Music: Though I haven't uploaded a lot of music-related stuff, I have been learning how to better control my voice and I can hear and sing harmonies a little better. I'm more confident with my mixing skills, though they're still very much at an amateurish level. Monetary: Regardless to say, I have not been very good with my money this year. I've spent a lot on both food and games and ended up with an unhealthy spending habit. This is probably an area that I need to work on next year. Worldwide: Countries and political leaders need to get their shit together already. And Americans need to stop being prejudiced assholes. But hey, what else is new?
