3. Did anyone close to you give birth?


4. Did anyone close to you die?

No, but my auntie is terminally ill. :-(

A reliable source of income.

I don't recall the dates of my trip to Alberta, so I'll say December 15, which is when I met Jamie and Adam from Mythbusters.

Planning a trip and travelling on my own.

Concert tickets, e-books, mostly frivolous things, plus a new oil tank for my home and a new air conditioner.

You don't have to go to every concert that comes to town. Save your money better.

44. What are your plans for 2016?

Don't have any yet. Just go to work and hopefully earn lots of money and save at least some of it.
