2010. You were a bitch. A good bitch. Some of your mood swings were Hell -- some weren't
so bad. Like the time when it rained on school photo day, so all the girls who put hours
into doing their hair, looked like shit. That was great. Or the time when I went to my
first convention, Manifest. And was fed sweets from two Orochimarus. Or when I bought my
Itachi plushie, and print, and keychain. Heeeeeeehehe~ 2010, I enjoyed it when we had
wheel-barrow races during lunch time, on the newly grown grass. It was fantastic when I
found out, a good friend I had fallen out of touch with, was a closet anime geek like
myself. Not so much of closet geeks now. Well, we still are. 2010, I am jealous that our
Dragon Ball Z loving friend for a Goku plushie. 2010, I am jealous that I had not learnt
of Powerthirst sooner.
2010, I did not enjoy it, when on my 16th birthday, I had to drive 3 hours to get to Mel-
bourne, to get my birth certificate so I could taking the driver's test. I wanted to go to
Minotaur for my birthday. We had only enough time to get the certificate and leave. I was
angry for that. Then I failed the test. I was devastated about that. Then none of my frie-
nds at school even bothered to give me even a "happy birthday" text. Only one called me.
His sisters, parents, and friends from church all sang me "happy birthday" over the phone.
I almost cried with joy. Then, 2010, you decided to drop a bomb-shell on me, didn't you?
Not only did you let 13-year-olds sexually harrass me at school, you had one of my best-
friends fall in love with me. Our friendship almost fell apart. I managed to save it. 2010
I hate you for that.
You let me meet wonderful people, 2010. You let me make wonderful friends; friends that I
don't know where I'd be without. They've helped me open my eyes, and breathe in the world
around me, for what it's worth. You've given me opportunities to express my talent that I've
kept to myself, and the anonymous world of the internet. You've given me inspiration to go
for my dreams, and to make peoples' lives brighter. You've given me the opportunities to
pull people out of the dark; to make people feel less alone; to know there're people like
them out there, or even just someone that'll listen.
2010, I love you, you bitch, you.
