So, in a potential precurser to an inevitable Rate your Decade thread how about you try rating your year?

I thought this would be easier than the decade seeing as a whole hell of a lot has changed for me in ten years and my memory's aweful so a shorter time span is probably better.

Just give a figure from 1-5 (1=poo, 5=big smileys) on your year overall, perhaps giving a little summary if ya feel like it.

To begin:

Smiler's Year: 4 overall biggrin.gif

It'd been shaping out to have been a really crap one this year what with me being made redundant and not having solid work for 7/8 months but overall the positives have outweighed the negative. I got news late last week that one of my interviews hit the right buttons and I'll be starting my new job on the 4th January, so that's nice for Christmas; and of course the lovely FaerieRyn and I got married which was awesome!!!!! wink.gif

Bit of an up and down one due to the no job finances but overall I think a 4 is good for the optimism aspect into 2010.

Also, How I Met Your Mother has been an odd and uniting highlight wink.gif

What about you?

The bad:
I ended a nearly-decade long relationship
Very, very expensive year
I spent a lot of money on a car I didn't really want

The intermediate:
I ended a nearly-decade long relationship
I spent a lot of money on a very cool holiday with a partner who wasn't very adventurous
I started learning to drive

The good:
I ended a nearly-decade long relationship
I spent a lot of money on keeping my hair... And it worked. Yay!
I did have a very cool holiday!
I started writing short stories and discovered that this is a new hobby that I really enjoy, so that's another one for the 'until I die or lose my marbles' list
I've finished working on my second big game project at work, which now gives my CV a very healthy glow
I'm probably fitter now than I was back in January
A new wing chun kung fu club started up in town, so I can train with other people again
... And probably lots of other cool stuff.

Yes, it's a mixed bag, and the end of such a long relationship does cast a long shadow in many spectrums, but overall I think this year has been pretty cool.
