1. What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?

Knitted something! It was just a few rows but it wasn't quite as scary as I was expecting. Casting on still confuses and infuriates me.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

My resolution for this year was just "Don't screw this one up". And all things considered, I think I managed that.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] zoeiona and [livejournal.com profile] multiclassgeek brought little Sylvianne into the world :) 

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Both my paternal grandparents died, but I wasn't close to either of them.

5. What countries did you visit?

Scotland. Croatia. Ireland (briefly). Belgium. France (briefly).

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?

My own place to live, perhaps? More spare time!

7. What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

1st January. Finally abandoned my 'no relationships' policy.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Getting multiple permanent job offers after eight years of temping was pretty awesome.

9. What was your biggest failure?

Worrying too much about things I cannot change.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?

Nasty infected cut and but nothing too serious.

11. What was the best thing you bought?

Probably the laptop that I'm typing this up on.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?

[livejournal.com profile] blazingskies for getting me through a couple of really nasty moments in the year, always finding the time for me and lending a listening ear and kind words. Love you, wifey!

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?

Couple of asshat colleagues :(

14. Where did most of your money go?

Travel. For business and pleasure.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

Seeing [livejournal.com profile] luckykaa

Going to Dubrovnik, going to Brussels. Not having to do temp work anymore!

16. What song will always remind you of 2015?

La Isla Bonita by Madonna. Fond memories of driving around Brighton singing along to it with The Boy.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder?
 Happier, I think.
b) thinner or fatter? Not sure. About the same I think.
c) richer or poorer? Considerably richer!

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?

Given myself a break to look after myself. I love my friends and family and I love seeing them regularly, but sometimes I just need to take a break and have some quality Flickums time.

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?

Worrying.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?

In Scotland with my family. Only there for a few days due to work, but it will be a nice break and less rushed than last year!

21. Who did you spend the most time on the phone with?

Nobody, really. I don't like making or receiving phone calls.

22. Did you fall in love in 2015?

Well...there is this boy I like.

23. How many one-night stands?

If I learned anything in 2015, it's that I suck at one night stands. You had ONE JOB [livejournal.com profile] luckykaa!

24. What was your favourite TV programme?

Daredevil, Avatar: The Last Airbender (very late to this party), Dead Like Me (ditto), Game of Thrones (yes, I feel a suitable amount of..ahem..shame).

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?

I can't be arsed with hate. Too much effort involved.

26. What was the best book you read?

Tough call! Toss up between The Guns of Tanith by Dan Abnett (I'M NOT CRYING! YOU'RE CRYING!) and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (so much 80s nostalgia). Cinder was pretty awesome too!

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?

Not sure. I'd like to say Peter Hollens but I'm pretty sure I started gushing over him back in 2013/2014.

28. What did you want and get?

Very well paid permanent jobbage. Someone who hugs me when I need it.

29. What did you want and not get?

Very well paid permanent jobbage that's closer to home.

30. What was your favourite film of this year?

Mad Max: Fury Road. Though to be fair, filmwise 2015 has been pretty dire.

31. What did you do on your birthday?

Pre-birthday party at Redemption (chocolate wine!), post-birthday meal at Vitos (steak!) both of which made up for the fact that my actual birthday kind of sucked due to cancelled plans and still living on a temps wage at the time :(

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?

Having a better idea of what I want to be doing with my life!

Jeans and geeky t-shirts. Again.

Friends. Family. The Boy.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

Chris Pratt. God, I'd marry him in a heartbeat!

The vote on Syria caused actual tears :(

The general election results being shit.

37. Who did you miss?

[livejournal.com profile] vanillafire - I miss our girl dates :(

38. Who was the best new person you met?

Met a lot of awesome people this year! Gwen & Mark, Julian & Claire, Jay the guy we sat with at Kat & Frodo's wedding was pretty awesome too! Chris from work is pretty cool to boot :)

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015:

Be careful what you wish for.

No. Because I'm not 14 and do not communicate in song lyrics.
