Not a quickie to today so I suggest you make a cuppa and grab your favorite bickie, I’m partial to a Highland Shortbread myself and a milky coffee, two sugars, just if you offering. Oh you’re not, that’s a bit rude! Moving on swiftly, I found these questions on Tumblr and thought that they would be a great way not only to share and insight with you but to reflect in detail on the past year. So to mark the week anniversary of my relationship with 2015, that so far has been stressful, thanks for asking, it’s not them it’s me. I welcome you to pull up a chair and enjoy
1: What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?
I did more than one thing this year that I’m I have never done before, here is my list:
- I achieved the grades I wanted a GCSE’s
- I joined a sixth form and make some great friends.
- I met the mayor of my local area representing my school alongside two amazing people.
- I started this little corner in the internet that despite its small following I cherish.
- I became more confident at social events.
- I didn’t fall down any stairs, just up them. Don’t judge, it’s a personal achievement.
And lots more that I can’t think of.
2: Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I haven’t actually made any new year’s resolutions this year (gasp) I’d just like to carry on doing what I’m doing, oh, perhaps take more photos to share with you guys. That sounds good. And email people that I don’t see that much more.
3: Did anyone close to you give birth?
4: Did anyone close to you die?
Human, no. Animal, yes.
5: What countries did you visit?
6: What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014?
I dunno really, I would kinda like to have a coke bottle with my name on, I can never find one! I have specially made one, but it’s just not the same as getting excited in the shop and being two so you can drink one and save one!
7: What dates from 2014 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
June 28th, the date of my Prom.
I don’t really remember dates, I just remember moments.

GCSE’s, it was great to finally be finished, and revision was by far one of the best things ever, I created so many memories in that time its crazy!
9: What was your biggest failure?
Falling up the stairs, in public, with people, everywhere.

My laptop, although it has since been replaced by this beauty on which I type now.
12: Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Huh? That’s English I don’t understand.
13: Whose behaviour made you appalled?
Nothing springs to mind on this one.
14: Where did most of your money go?
Books and clothes.

18: What do you wish you’d done more of?
Laughing at the little things.

Always write and talk, because there is always someone listening to what you have to say.
Thanks for bearing with me on that extremely wordy post, after all this is WordPress! Get it? Back to normal next week with the first installment of Book Banter! Excited? Oh don’t show too much enthusiasm will you? It’s like getting blood out of a stone. Let me know if you enjoyed that, and I invite you to perhaps answer these questions yourself, I think you’ll learn something. I certainly did.
