When I was seven years old, we had Circle Time at school. Circle Time was when we all sat on the floor in a circle and discussed a topic of the day. This particular day’s topic was “my dream life.” The idea was that you could choose absolutely anything – the best existence you could possibly think of, even if it had no chance of ever coming true.

2018 has been a weird year. OK, on the whole, with some not-great bits but nothing absolutely horrific, so that’s something. I’d been planning to have a quieter year than I ended up having, but it still hasn’t been the level of foot-to-the-floor busy that I’m anticipating in 2019.

That’s much better than being able to do one thing per week, though.
The doctors have said I can try doing a bit of exercise again, and as someone who normally swims every day, the fact that they recommended swimming was highly pleasing.

Last year on New Year’s Eve, my friends and I went through a Buzzfeed list of questions to ask yourself as 2015 became 2016. I thought it’d be interesting to answer a few and then do the same at the end of 2016 and see what, if anything, has changed. Last year’s answers are here. And this year’s are below.
