  24. Summarize the year in three words or less. Bonus points for doing it in one word. Explain.

  25. How have people around you changed?

  26. What have you learned throughout the year? (Other than crafts)

  27. What was your favourite outfit for warm weather? Cooler weather?

  28. Did you learn any new crafts or techniques? What was your favourite thing you made?

  29. What changed about your physical appearance? (Hair? Wrinkles? New makeup style? Etc)

  30. What are your hopes and dreams for the new year?


I know it's a busy time of year so I made it due after the holidays. Maybe you can work on it while waiting in lines! And if anything changes you can fix it after the holidays. :)

I will be more lenient about allowing newbies and those with bad ratings. Newbies must have well-filled out profiles with a minimum of 4 sections or paragraphs. I will angel after you contact your partner (or try to) at least twice, receive no or a negative answer and rate a 1. If you were already my partner, I'll pass along someone else's answers.

Full disclosure. I found the first 20 of these online with no credited source. I modified some and authored the last 10 myself. I'd give credit and/or ask for permission if I knew who to ask!
