Has 2015 been a good year for you?
No, not especially. Well, the first month was great, the next nine were horrendous, and it's been slowly getting better since then.

What did you do in 2015 that you'd never done before?
Landed on the wrong end of a lot of bureaucracy.
Went to a massive national awards dinner as a shortlisted finalist.
Went to a kitty café.
Edinburgh Pride
Cycled 115km in one day.
Then 130km in one day the next month.
And 150km in one day the month after that.
Entered a bouldering competition.
Entered an Audax (long distance cycling event) on a solo bike.
Related to previous, fell off my bike at high speed requiring a hospital visit..
Went to a trampoline park.
Watched roller derby in person.
Went to Toronto.
Went to Niagara Falls.
Visited the Statue of Liberty.
Went pole dancing.

What goals do you have for 2016?
To stay sane for the final year of my degree, and more trivially, something I haven't come up with a good name for, that'll be a cross between the #365selfies thing I've seen a few people do this year, and the #100happydays thing I did after my birthday in 2014 (because making an effort to find one thing every day that made me happy was a surprisingly happy experience, would you believe?!)
