16 What song will always remind you of 2012?
Love on Top. This song was my freaking birthday anthem! Love it.
17 Compared to this time last year, are you: (i) happier or sadder? (ii) thinner or fatter? (iii) richer or poorer?
(i) It's a pretty balanced thing right now actually. I've had a good share of my happy times and my sad times so...
(ii) I reckoned I've gained a few pounds because I've been eating quite a lot of rice since I'm in college and all but again, pretty much the same overall.
(iii) Hey, if I have a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes to wear, I'm good. Richer or poorer, I'm still living in a house with a car and constant supply of food; so nothing's changed. Happy!

"A tornado flew around the room before you came excuse the mess it made it usually doesn't rain in Southern California" ...... as much as this verse don't make no sense, so did my year. And I loved it.
If I have better song lyrics, I'd edit it in here then later.
