What kind of a year has 2018 been for you?

What has changed for the better and what, if anything, has changed for the worse?
Confidence, for better and for worse.

What do you wish had happened this year, but didn’t?
I wish I had more time to read books, play computer games and make rap songs.

What would you characterise as your major achievement this year and why?
Getting nominated for the Jarman Award. The nomination improved my confidence.

Is there anything you’d like to have done this year but haven’t?
Learnt Punjabi.

What would make 2019 a better year than 2018?
