Since this is my first time at attempting to keep a livejournal scrapbook, I thought I'd warn you that it might start out being a little schizophrenic, as I try and figure things out along the way but will probably become a little better organized as the year progresses forward. I like a little structure to my journal entries, so it's no surprise that I'll try to be as neat and organized with this as I possibly can. I thought it'd be fun, to keep a monthly documented history of what was in the year 2010 - give me a little something to look back on and reflect a bit. So, with that being said, definitely feel free to look around a little bit and just enjoy. :)

January ...
Discovered the awesomeness that is Mad Men. Absolutely love the show, the sets, and the costumes. The acting is phenomental and the characters are epic. Spent time trolling livejournal for icons, fiction, and fanmixes. Seriously, if you're not watching this show and you don't understand all the hype, then buy/rent it and figure it out.

Watched the second part of the Doctor Who Special - The End of Time and my heart broke with The Doctor's (Ten's) last words: "I don't want to go." I didn't want him to go either, but this is Doctor Who, the show goes on, and the Doctor must regenerate. But man, all of the take-me-back-to-the-beginning really does get to me, a bit. And you know what, I wouldn't have it any other way. Well done show, well done.

Re-discovered my love for the S4 Wesley story-arc and fell in love with Wes/Lilah, all over again. A massive re-watch of the season, soon followed. Seriously angsty, dark!Wesley is the most fun to watch. And Lilah Mogan is one feirce bitch, you don't want to mess with. Scowered the livejournal comms for any and all Wesley and Wes/Lilah icons that I could find, looking up picspams, working on a fanmix I'm creating for them, and reading as much fic as I can get my hands on.

Discovered a new show that I unexpectedly love already and it's only been the pilot, Life Unexpectedly. Feels like old!school WB when it used to be worth watching, with Shirri Appleby and Kerr Smith. I totally love their character's and can't wait to see more, even if I do have a few reservations with the premise and a minor frustration with one of the storylines already presented.


.Favorite Character ...
January 1st through December the 31st, 2010.



January ...
Pete Campbell on Mad Men, because he's just freaking epic. True facts. IDEK, there's just something about him that I can't quite put my finger on, but I loved him the moment he graced my screen. Besides the fact that he's a little too pretty for his own good anyway.

Kitty Walker-McAllister on Brothers&Sisters, because she's one of the strongest and best written characters in the history of television characters ever written. And because, she's probably one of the main reasons that I keep watching the show, in general. I love how, she stands on her own two feet staring death in the face literally and says: "I want to live.", and then she does.

Robert McAllister on Brothers&Sisters, because he's quite possibly THE BEST THING to ever happen to this show, aside from Kitty. I love how he's determined to give every bit of who he is to his family, even if it means he has to give up so much of who he was or the goals he was working towards previously. He'll do it, because he loves them and they're more important to him than any political agenda he could ever have, and that's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

Samantha McCall on General Hospital, because when she makes her mind up - that's it. She's determined to do things her own way, regardless of what anyone else thinks and she'll handle the responsiblity that comes along with it. And because, when she loves she does so un-conditionally without putting any restrictions on it and she does it with all of her heart and never holds anything back. In a word, she's completely fear-less and un-condtionally amazing when it comes to those she loves.

Dante Falcaneri on General Hospital, because he's a good, decent, and honorable man who will stop at nothing to protect those he cares about, as well as putting his life in danger to protect the people he's sworn to protect by his badge.

General Hospital. Re-discovered my love for Samantha McCall and Jason Morgan, ten fold. Squee'ed every time Franco in all of his crazy psychotic tendencies was on my screen and fangirled his taunting/courtship of Jason Morgan in any way he attempted. Fell even more madly in love with Dante, than I should have ever done. And re-discovered my love of original!Lucky and can't wait to see his story further un-fold, because it can't be anything but good and angsty. It just suits him. Oh, and cheered Johnny on in his cause to make sure Claudia got the proper burial that she deserved, because if she wasn't anything else she was an amazing sister to him.

Quotes ...
January 1st through December 31st, 2010.



"It is a constant idea of mine, that behind the cotton wool [of daily reality] is hidden a pattern; that we - I mean all human beings are connected with this; that the whole world is a work of art; that we are parts of the work of art." ;; Virginia Woolf - A Sketch of the Past

"Be the change you want to see in the world." ;; Mahatma Gandhi

"Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken." ;; Albert Camus

"He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying." ;; Friedrich Nietzsche

"If you're not failing, you're not trying anything." ;; Woody Allen

"Happiness is a mystery like religion, and it should never be rationalized." ;; G. K. Chesterton

"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend." ;; Albert Camus

"What does not destroy me, makes me strong." ;; Friedrich Nietzsche

"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." ;; Oscar Wilde


.Resolutions ...
January 1st through December the 31st, 2010.



(++) To learn to stand on my own two feet and help myself more, before relying on other's to help me.
(++) To be a better friend, than I have been lately.
(++) To not let small petty fandom crap, get to me so much.
(++) To be happy and if I'm not, to try and take that negativity and make it more positive - in other words - figure out how to make myself happy.
(++) To work on all of my faults, whatever they may be.
(++) To find a job, I don't care what kind it is or if it's just part-time, just to keep pounding the pavement until I come up with something - anything.
(++) To be a better sister, daughter, aunt, and granddaughter in general.
(++) To walk a little bit more this year than I did last, so that I can lose a little bit of weight.
(++) To keep up with this scrapbook, keep my goals, and try to do the best I can.
