New Year Survey 2018

New Year Survey 2018

1. What did you do in 2018 that you’d never done before?
2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Last year I needed to find a new home for all of my office “friends,”. I did set them up in my basement. I wanted to do that free class on deep learning. That did not happen, but I almost finished the class on statistics. I gotta do something in terms of learning next year, because once I got pregnant all that stopped.
3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Rachi and Bushra
4. Did anyone close to you die? Papi :(

6. What would you like to have in 2019 that you lacked in 2018? I just want the year too go smoothly
7. What date from 2018 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? I don’t think any date in particular, but there were quite a few days I’d rather forget mixed with some happier ones
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? I got a nice raise, created life
9. What was your biggest failure? Being pregnant and useless the last few months

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? Baby #2!

lll. richer or poorer? Poorer

19. What do you wish you’d done less of? Throwing up
20. How will you be spending Christmas? People coming here
24. What was your favorite TV program? A lot of good TV this year. Travelers, The Man in the High Castle, The Marvelous Mrs Mazel. NBC even gifted an ending to Timeless. Someone high up must really like that show. It was awful, but better than nothing.
26. What was the best book you read? I think I’ve only read children’s books…
28. What did you want and get? To be pregnant
29. What did you want and not get? A girl, lol. And I don’t even know if he’s healthy cause he wouldn’t turn around.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? Playground with friends and their littles. I turned 33.
32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Bad things not happening to loved ones.
33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2017? still stitch fix
34. What kept you sane? Owen. No matter how lousy I feel, that kid’s hugs make me feel better. Though he often drives me crazy too.
35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?  Stacey Abrams who ran for governor in Georgia. Real disappointed she didn’t win. She did an AMA on Reddit, seemed like a good person.
36. What political issue stirred you the most? Oy. I just don’t understand Trump supporters at all. I think what bugs me the most is what we’re doing to our planet.
37. Who did you miss? Papi
38. Who was the best new person you met? The babies
39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2018: if you have one really bad encounter with a Dr, they’re probably awful and you should switch right away no matter how convenient they are

42. What are you most looking forward to next year? I just want to make it out of the year alive
43. What were your predictions last year? When I said new office space, I meant the move downstairs, right? That happened earlier than I thought it would, but still pretty late. It has been tough on the One Team.
44. What are your predictions for 2019? We’ll all need therapy after the Game of Thrones finale; our new office space will be shiny, but suck; I will not sleep
