I just scrolled past this on tumblr and it reminded me of the 30 day song challenge I ran before and also the quizzes that Cameron has done in the past so I thought why not share it here. It's just a bunch of EOY questions that should get a bit of reflection going! Don't feel you need to answer all of them, this was made for tumblr so I'm not expecting everyone to wanna post pictures or whatever as there are a couple of questions that ask that laugh.gif

1. Song of the year? Fake Happy by Paramore, I honestly have so many songs of the year this year that I'm not even set on this :')
2. Album of the year? All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell by Pvris
3. Favorite musical artist / group you started listening to this year? MUNA
4. Movie of the year? The Carmilla Movie (that none of you probs know of kink.gif)
5. TV show of the year? Orphan Black
6. Episode of tv or webisode that defined the year for you? No idea
7. Favorite actor of the year? Chyler Leigh
8. Game of the year? Drunk snap
9. Best month for you this year? August
10. Something that made you cry this year? Seeing Pvris live again and 90% of everything else that happened
11. Something you want to do again next year? See Lotti
12. Talk about a new friend you made this year - in a buzzjack sense i got a lot closer to Burbe this year but idk if I befriended him this year or last?? Love him though and it was great actually getting to meet and hang out in person sick2.gif irl wise we had a girl transfer from the Inverness campus to the Perth one at uni and she's really cool and I get on well with her, she reminds me of lotti a little bit actually!
13. How was your birthday this year? It was pretty good, I mean I spent it at Disney in Florida so I can't complain really *.*
14. Favorite book you read this year? Literally all the books I've read have been for my dissertation, I've started a few books but not been able to finish them for one reason or another, it's been a sad year on that front
15. What’s a bad habit you picked up this year? Idk if I picked up any, more just made pre-existing ones worse, like procrastination, stress eating, over thinking etc... I became aware of quite a heavy one though and that's putting people before myself (which is usually a good thing to do) but in a way that was really unhealthy and I ended up damaging my own happiness or mindset on multiple occasions just from prioritising other people and neglecting myself.
16. Post a picture from the beginning of the year - Maybe tomorrow
17. Post a picture from the end of the year- maybe tomorrow
18. A memorable meal this year? Every Lottsey meet up meal tbh, there wasn't one that wasn't iconic
19. What’re you excited about for next year? Haaaa seeing Paramore I guess and being able to quit my job
20. What’s something you learned this year? That kangaroos have three vaginas and opening up to people can be good
21. What’s something new about your place of residence (room, home, or general location) now vs the start of the year? I have a chair for my desk now
22. Favorite place you visited this year? Florida
23. If you could send a message to yourself back on the first day of the year, what would it be? Be more guarded when it comes to other people, it's not selfish to make sure you're happy first and foremost and don't f***ing agree to move departments at work.
24. Did you keep any New Year’s Resolutions? Idk if I made any last year, I'll need to check last year's threads. Usually I just set myself goals that I can maintain with like no effort, like going to as many gigs as I can.
25. What are your new resolutions for the next year? I've kinda started mine already and it's to say yes more and be less afraid to do things I ordinarily wouldn't

4. Movie of the year? More spoilers for EOY, gaaaah but a toss up between Call Me By Your Name, Thor and Wonder Woman.

14. Favorite book you read this year? - Call Me By Your Name. I finished it in under a day and was just so swept up in the romance of it all.

15. What’s a bad habit you picked up this year? I've just finished a project so am looking for followup work, however I'm off to Australia for the month of March so can't look for something permanent. Slim pickings! Anyway it has made me lazy getting up in the mornings. Bad times

22. Favorite place you visited this year? Hmmm I think I had the most fun in Portsmouth this year when revisiting. Went to uni there and love it so much!

1. Song of the year?
don't do this to me, I don't rly work like that

2. Album of the year?
This I probably can say. Sevdaliza - ISON / Björk - Utopia (the latter is still sort of growing on me with every listen but I'm pretty confident that I'll look back at it as one of my very favourite albums of this year)

3. Favorite musical artist / group you started listening to this year?
I discovered an EP by ppl called youryoungbody, maybe them? There might be a better answer for this but I'm too lazy to go searching my last.fm or whatever... Because it's just one EP, I only know around five songs by this band but I just really enjoyed listening to that EP this year, as well as watching some of their live performances. I don't think I started listening to many new artists in 2017.

4. Movie of the year?
Maybe 'Lion'? I saw that movie this year I'm pretty sure. Made me think about my own life quite a lot and it was v emotionallll

5. TV show of the year?
Didn't watch that much TV this year, not sure

6. Episode of tv or webisode that defined the year for you?
none

7. Favorite actor of the year?
none

8. Game of the year?
none

9. Best month for you this year?
Like many people in this thread already, I would probably have to say August. That was probably the month I was at my best this year emotionally, especially the first two weeks.

10. Something that made you cry this year?
Loneliness / Overthinking about my problems

11. Something you want to do again next year?
Go on holidays

12. Talk about a new friend you made this year
I got into my first proper romantic relationship this year. Also made some new online friends but no new friends in real life apart from the relationship.

13. How was your birthday this year?
Well, first thing I did after I got up was I secretly went to a separate room to have a little cry at the thought of being the age I am and feeling like I've not achieved much or had that much of what I'd like (which sounds selfish and ungrateful and partly untrue). The day improved as I went to a fine little restaurant with family. I actually don't really like birthdays in general, they evoke strange emotions in me.

14. Favorite book you read this year?
I finally finished The Diary of Anne Frank this year and am currently reading the book I got after that (received it for my birthday actually) which is about the theories of people's psychology and people's physical appearances possibly being linked.

15. What’s a bad habit you picked up this year?
I was probably even more negative this year than I've previously been for some time. Lots of self-pity going on, I think it's getting better now.

16. Post a picture from the beginning of the year
sombre-looking pic with a tree

17. Post a picture from the end of the year
me being on obsess-mode over my new hats (I couldn't rly find a better one lol)

18. A memorable meal this year?
My birthday meal, as well as most of the meals I had on dates.

19. What’re you excited about for next year?
Going on holidays hopefully, moving out hopefully (PLS), better sex hopefully tongue.gif

20. What’s something you learned this year?
Well obviously I've learned things at my job. Also I feel like life is constantly throwing out potential lessons for me to learn, it's sorta difficult to grasp hold of them though and actually grow as a person according to those lessons...

21. What’s something new about your place of residence (room, home, or general location) now vs the start of the year?
I actually can't think of anything!

22. Favorite place you visited this year?
DEFINITELY Inisheer, which is the smallest of the Aran Islands off the coast of Galway. It was my first solo holiday, I enjoyed myself so much and wanna go again with someone else this time! Among other spots I found, there was this wonderful lakeside place where I sat, enjoyed the sun (I don't think I saw a single cloud during my three days away!), read my book and just... relaxed. I feel like it was a very important experience for me to have and I'm really glad I went for it heart.gif

23. If you could send a message to yourself back on the first day of the year, what would it be?
nsfw ~

24. Did you keep any New Year’s Resolutions?
I doubt I made any.

25. What are your new resolutions for the next year?
Well I don't like to call them resolutions really, but I'm hoping to start getting ready to leave the house a little earlier (and also getting up earlier) so there won't be a sense of 'shit I might be late!!!1' or actually being late which does occur occasionally. Also I want 2018 to bring me more positivity in myself, I've had a pretty rough couple of years emotionally, so I'm hoping to work on myself to be more positive and at peace with myself, as well as not constantly relying on external circumstances to keep me happy / motivated / at peace. Gotta be grateful <3

Probably Steven Wilson, certainly the first year I checked him out in full.

12. Talk about a new friend you made this year
I got very close to my coursemates on my PGCE and my mentor, though more a professional relationship than a social one, has been such a great support during and after my training and we will hopefully remain in touch. Also I did feel like I got closer to some people on here as well and can certainly call them friends.

2. Album of the year? Ne Obliviscaris - Urn
3. Favorite musical artist / group you started listening to this year? Either Whispered, The Dear Hunter, or Moulettes
4. Movie of the year? Get Out; Wonder Woman and Logan are honorable mentions. Still behind on movies tho lol.
5. TV show of the year? I haven't seen that many tv series this year. I'm still playing catch up on a lot of things and am about a year or so behind on tv.
6. Episode of tv or webisode that defined the year for you? N/A.
7. Favorite actor of the year? Gal Godot? I guess?
8. Game of the year? The Long Dark, though that's been around for a while. I'm even more behind on games than I am on tv and movies.
9. Best month for you this year? Either April or May so far.
10. Something that made you cry this year? I don't think I've legit cried this year.
11. Something you want to do again next year? I would like to have another music related job, like at the school music library or a theater again.
12. Talk about a new friend you made this year Well, I'll mention three really cool friends I've made since moving. One I knew before I moved to work on my Bachelor's, but wasn't really that close to before. We started catching up over fb on the bus ride here, and have become super close since then. We have a lot of really strong friendly chemistry, so it's really for us to have conversations. The other two I met in my Russian class. One's a girl who is (I'm pretty sure at least) the only other person in the school with my specific major. We're at pretty much the same level with French and Russian (we're both French & Russian majors), and have some background in theater (we were both theater techs too!). She's a really sweet girl. The other one is actually my Russian teacher! She's actually roughly my age (a year or two older I think tho...I haven't asked because I know better than to ask someone about their age lol), but she's super chill and a really easy person to talk to. She's also one of the best teachers I've had, and really got me interested in learning Russian. She won't be my teacher next semester, sadly, but hopefully I can maintain a friendship there.
13. How was your birthday this year? I'll tell you in a week! Hopefully it'll be good
14. Favorite book you read this year? American Gods - Neil Gaiman
15. What’s a bad habit you picked up this year? Heroin.
16. Post a picture from the beginning of the year Don't take many pictures
17. Post a picture from the end of the year See above
18. A memorable meal this year? These AMAZING pecan glazed carrots that my brother made for his culinary school graduation. It's been 8 months and I still remember what they taste like.
19. What’re you excited about for next year? idk yet. Just trying to make it through the end of this year.
20. What’s something you learned this year? Russian isn't as hard as I thought it would be! I also learned a lot about educational psychology, foreign languages, and music.
21. What’s something new about your place of residence (room, home, or general location) now vs the start of the year? Well, it's in a different city for starters. Also, it constantly smells like weed and the walls are super thin. Other than that, it's surprising just how similar it is.
22. Favorite place you visited this year? The bathroom. Didn't go on any trips, really. I do want to go to France and/or Russia soon though. Hopefully in the next year or two.
23. If you could send a message to yourself back on the first day of the year, what would it be? "Be extra cautious with your wallet this year." I've had roughly $500 stolen from my wallet (likely by roommates or coworkers)
24. Did you keep any New Year’s Resolutions? Didn't make any
25. What are your new resolutions for the next year? Don't have any. I would like to make another album or EP or two or something though.
