And so I'm posting mine, instead of stalking LJ hoping other folks will do one too. Thanks, avnerd, for getting it started.

What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
Applied for a really big job, with full benefits and retirement and everything.

Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't make them, and plan to continue that.

Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes, Grover had Ember.

Did anyone close to you die?
E's sweet old dog died, right before she returned home from the woods.

What countries did you visit?
Just this one and Fernland.

What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015?
I would like to have a job with benefits and retirement.

What date from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
Leaving the land early to come home for the new job.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I taught a full load of classes, including seated students for the first time.

What was your biggest failure?
Well, I didn't get the permanent job.

Did you suffer illness or injury?
I still have Crohn's disease, but it's been not too bad this year.

What was the best thing you bought?
New computer.

Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Sweet supportive friends and tribe. My supportive, handy, and hot lover.

Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
People with guns.

Where did most of your money go?
Rent, utilities, and whole lot on 'professional grown up clothes' for the above-mentioned job.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Oh, the farmlet in general. It's so stinking beautiful here.

Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder?
happier? Maybe about the same. The happiness level's been pretty constant, these last few years.
ii. thinner or fatter?
iii. richer or poorer?
It's a mixed bag- I'm probably a little poorer overall- BUT I'm making an entire living from adjunct teaching. That's new.

What do you wish you'd done more of?
Exercise, more time with friends. More time in the woods.

What do you wish you'd done less of?
Sitting around watching Netflix.

How will you be spending Dec 25th?
We're roasting the ham we made from Acorn the pig, with a bunch of delicious sides, and watching a Kung Fu Panda double feature.

Did you fall in love in 2015?

How many one night stands?
None, I don't really go in for one night stands.

What was your favourite TV programme?
Grey's Anatomy (Not sure this is true for the entire year, but we're working our way through the entire show...I'm a little obsessed with these crazy people). OH, also the Great British Bake Off. And the last season of The Newsroom.

Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I don't have energy for hating anyone.

What was the best book you read?
I read too much to pick a favorite.

What was your greatest musical discovery?
Music- not so much my bag. I enjoy it, but don't necessarily seek it out. I know- it's weird.

What did you want and get?
The ability to make a living teaching.

What did you want and not get?
A permanent professor job with benefits.

What was your favourite film this year?
Star Wars.

What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
I'd have liked to be on the land until the end.

How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2015?
"Wait, does this cover my tattoos?"

What kept you sane?
Lists. Many many lists.

Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
I don't do this either.

What political issue stirred you the most?
Black Lives Matter

Who did you miss?
Not enough time with my kid this year.

Who was the best new person you met?
No new extra special friends, but I'm loving the ones I have better.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015.
Sometimes you have no control over the plan.
