2016 questonnaire
weeping blood

So. that time of year again. the questionnaire comes out.

1. What did you do in 2016 that you'd never done before?
This year I went on a once In a lifetime trip to New Zealand with my cousin and my mom, via Hong Kong - i've never flown further than Atlanta before. and I'm doubtful I will ever again.
fell over ontop of a mountain (drectly across from Eagle Mountain I may add).

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I gave up making them some years ago. I make lists, what I could and can't, should and shouldn't do that sort of thing. but not resolutions, don' believe in em

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
I am gonna say no but I need to check something so this may get edited

4. Did anyone close to you die?
depends on the form of Death your refering to. no one within my pack crossed over. but I did see the death of a lie i'd held onto for a long long time.

5. What countries did you visit?
Hong Kong and New Zealand

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?.
I know now that I should listen to myself a little more in some respects and less in others.

And that I did not know true 'Friends' until i was at least 25.

7. What dates from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
none cos i'm crap at dates and have to keep checking. lol
but April for my trip to Tribeworld.
June because I got to meet Manu Bennett and Bridget Regan
and July because I got to meet both Greyjoys and Jason David Frank

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
 Making it through the year without needing a psych eval - and that isn't actually a joke
aspects of this year have been awesome but some have been...elightening to say the least

9. What was your biggest failure?
 I didn't get everywhere I wanted to in NZ but I am determined to try and go back.
I missed the final Faebles, and didn't make 1 Wales comic con.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
nothing signifcantly different than previous years

11. What was the best thing you bought?
good question.... my hat!

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
depends when your asking about. I'd say my inner pack  -   aeron_lanart and Heather
My Cousin Zoe as well. she organised the whole trip in April dealt with my mother and me, and still lets me stay at hers in London lol.

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depresssed?
 yeah, now. here theres a list. some old some new. but none i'm going to repeat even for the sake of drawing this year review out.

Conventions. as always.
and New Zealand ofcourse

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
New Zealand, LFCC, Ultimates,

16. What song will always remind you of 2016?
 hmmm... well the one that got stuck in my head round NZ was Danceoff by Macklemoor. but this end of the year its been Rockabye by Clean Bandit. and Wolfsbane song was Down With The Sickness because it was finally played at a con.

Ruelle has to be the theme leader for this year though with Monsters and Until We Go Down.

its tommorow. i'll be 32 and we're off to Bradford for the day to see my fellow Trekkies, go to wrestling and 'maybe' have an Indian at the Kashmir. its quieter than previous years, but I'll have my Parabatai at my side and then about ten days later depending on her work our little pack trio will be reunited.
would have loved to do the Hogsmead party but its a matter of logistics

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
gettng to meet Raymond Thompson. he was in NZ same time as me after all the silence and he met a set of German fans, it peed me off, but I wasn't in NZ alone and I had to organise in accordance.
well actually my Cousn organised, i just tagged along lol.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2016?
 wear who you are. not who others expect you to be

 has to be said, this has been the year of Dominic Sherwood, Aaron Ashmore and Tim Rozon

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
American Election where the world saw itself slowly screwed by right wing fear mongers, sexists and cowards.
EU Referendum where sane people pretty much just got barebacked by idiots.

37. Who did you miss?
miss? in the 'AAV' context? - can't think of anyone really. I'm living by Tom Stoppards rule now.
Miss as in "wish i'd seen more of them." - easy, four of my frends: Michelle, Lauren, Erykah and Andrew

38. Who was the best new person you met?
not ‘new’ as in ‘new’ but probably Adam, we properly hung out this year. so i’d say it counts
and...well. she RP’s as Jace so thats how I know her :D

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2016.
"We cross our bridges when wecome to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.”
ok not so much 'learned it' as had it spelled out in kicks in my chest, that things have to have a cut off point.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year."

one misstep, you're mine
And you better stay clever if you wanna survive
Once you cross the line
You'll be wishing you would listen when you meet your demise
