Describe your 2016 in 3 words.
Exciting, life-changing, and memorable.
Write the name of 2 people that have characterized your 2016.
Just two people, huh? Well, I guess I’ll go with my friend Ana Flávia Albuquerque from France (who I met in Ireland and who I’ve been keeping in contact with by sending her a steady supply of memes on FB) and my other friend, Margaret Harris, who I roomed with during the winter semester. We went through hell together as we secretly went to war with the other roommate in the next room over. Dark times. Dark times…
Write the most beautiful place you’ve visited in 2016 and why you liked it so much.
Galway, I miss your emerald green fields and sturdy stone fences. I miss your friendly natives and small town vibe. I miss your endless number of pubs and cafés, your narrow roads, and cold blue river. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I arrived in Ireland. I’d love to go back some day.
Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016.
That would be my Aunt Linda and cousin Heather’s Christmas day dinner. Nothing can or ever will compare to my Auntie’s sweet potato pie, fresh bread rolls, or collard greens. And nothing measures up to my cousin’s home-cooked mac n’cheese, honeyed ham, candied yams, or herb stuffing.
Write the event which has marked you the most in 2016 (even global event).
That would be Trump winning the election. My soul cries.
Write the finest purchase you made in 2016, and if you want, link a photo.
Of course I’m very happy with a great number of my book buys last year (i.e. Six of Crows, Lady Midnight, Illuminae) but there’s something else I’m really proud to have bought. I don’t know why, but I am really happy I got this really cool DC Comics canvas print.
Write 3 good intentions for 2017.
To write more short stories, to revise my second and third novels, and to find an internship or job that works with books and/or literacy.
Write 1 place you want to visit in 2017.
I’d love to visit New York City! My mom’s from Manhattan, so hopefully I can convince her to take my brother and me back to her hometown over the summer.
Write 1 plate/food you want to eat in 2017.
