Another year later... Facebook timeline has kind of made this a bit redundant but, you know.

1. What did you do in 2011 that you'd never done before?
Went to Scotland. Was top.

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Ummm, yeah, I did some stuff, not others. My resolution for this year is run 5k in 20 minutes. After that we'll take it from there. Maybe do an OU course. But this crops up every time I feel a little unfulfilled. I shouldn't feel unfulfilled, I'm rushed off my feet at the minute.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Well not close.

4. What countries did you visit?
Does Scotland count?

5. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
More money, more interesting work, a car, a place of my own to live, a holiday abroad. Not much really 

6. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
First catch launch was good, very bitter sweet night, but god knows the date. Death of Grandad, too, for obvious reasons.  

7. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Ummm, I'll get back to you on that.

8. What was your biggest failure?

New MacBookPRO

11. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
God knows.

Rent, and other assorted shit. Futureworks have taken a big chunk, violin lessons, all sort of stuff.

14. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
New Job, getting the first issue of catch out, going to Scotland, starting Futureworks course.

15. What song will always remind you of 2011?
None really. I've much stopped listening to music. God knows why.
