2020 questionnaire

I wasn't originally going to do it this year, but then Heather did and I figured.. screw 2020 I'm not changing a tradition I can actually control. so here it is my 2020 review questionnaire
1. What did you do in 2020 that you’d never done before?
* An FCD convention (2258)
* got quarantined due to an international pandemic.
2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don’t do them
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
not sure of timing, but my cousin Jade I think, though by “close” I only mean by blood, we’ve not had dealings since she was in High School.
4. Did anyone close to you die?
A friend (no names for the sake of honour)
A friend’s father (no names for the sake of honour)
A cousin’s familiar (no names for the sake of honour)
5. What countries did you visit?
6. What would you like to have in 2021 that you lacked in 2020?
Have some semblance of an actual life.
7. What dates from 2020 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
The end of Feb 2020 - I finally me Jason Carter, and yes I will be going on about this repeatedly for years to come.
Also in Feb I saw Counterfeit for what...i never believed would be the last time.
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Not murdering someone counts?
9. What was your biggest failure?
For a change I don’t have an answer to that... not on I’m willing to post publicly anyway.
10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
11. What was the best thing you bought?
Either my little black owl bag (codename Morningstar)
Or one of the ghosts.
12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Top of the list is obv:
Heather Louise Sharpe. Takes a lot to survive what she has this year and not go to pieces.
But then I wanna give a bow to Anthony Rapp and Wilson Cruz for their work and campaigning.. i don’t do politics but I know what stuff isn’t easy.
13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
As always I could quote a number of politicians and people in and out of showbiz.
There have been a few fandom people and moments too.
But personally speaking.. I was rather... disgusted by someone I had thought actually possessed a brain (a hard thing to do where they come from) but as always I was proved wrong
14. Where did most of your money go?}
Survival. And for me that means geekery
15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
And some other stuff which consequently never happened and never likely will.
16. What song will always remind you of 2020?
Counterfeit - It gets better. Both because it got me through a lot of the year and cos... Well. Just cause
17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) Happier or sadder? meh.
b) Thinner or fatter? meh.
c) Richer or poorer? poorer
18. What do you wish you’d done more of?
19. What do you wish you’d done less of?
Being stuck in the house.
20. How did you spend Christmas?
Not happened yet but will likely be stuck in the house watching reruns.
In my family unit it’s not classed as a ‘big’ thing, even less so this year
21. What was your favourite month of 2020?
Feb: Hu, Counterfeit, 2258
22. Did you fall in love in 2020? & 23. How many one-night stands?

Several. One in particular
26. What was the best book you read?
Ben Aaronovitch - False Values
27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
This year I’ve personally not made one, but Allys sent me 2 bands who I now love.
Re-discovery however is another story - Black Veil Bridges saved my black soul when Counterfeit split.
28. What did you want and get?
The 13th doctors coat. AND IT ACTUALLY FITS
Not got it “yet” but I’ve finally ordered a Zat.

Question is mute cos if I wanted it I’ll get it next year unless you’re talking events due to the pandemic in which case... hindsight is
2020 aint it
30. What was your favourite film of this year?
Can’t say I have on tbf
31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
It’s this week like 4 days from now. I’ll be 36 and short of one of my brief trips to York I’m doing exactly fuck all.(December + pandemic)
32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
How long you got?
* getting a holiday
* seeing my friends for more than a few hours
* getting to a con
* One of the few decent bands left not fracturing
* This country not being subjected to a bunch of silver spoon fed, tunnel versioned inbreeds and their leader the great hair fails.
33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2020?
PJ don’t last a year if you wear them 5/7 days
34. What kept you sane?
That’s been debatable since I was 6 lol.
But this year... whats kept me “anchored.” is:
* My Pack
* Teen Wolf and other fandoms
* planning for 2021 even though I know my countries fked.
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
See question 22
36. What political issue stirred you the most?
I try to avoid politics, my family are all socialists and it’s like verbal torture in this house since I was old enough to realise it.
37. Who did you miss?
My Pack.
yes I got to see Adam, Heather and Ally for a few hours on and off throughout the year, but that’s like being stuck in solitary and only getting to go outside once a month out of all 12 months.. Not even that if I’m honest
40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"Happy! Happy!
Happy! Happy!
Happy! Happy! Choose your poison
Choose your poison
Choose your poison
Poison! Everything is shutting down
(Shutting down, shutting down)
Everything is shutting down
(Shutting down, shutting down)
Everything is shutting down
(Shutting down, shutting down)"
<Danny Elfman - Happy>
41. Sum your __2020 up in pictures (IN NO ORDER)
Will be dong that in another post as always
