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?

Maybe a 3.5. Roses and Thorns style...? unsure.gif

Rose: New Year's was in Germany, which was fun.
Thorn: Came back to live in my step-dad's house, because my mom moved over the break. I had to go to a new school, which suuuucked, halfway through 8th grade year. All my friends are about an hour away.
Rose: I got the nice room, and Isaac and Sarah were actually alright/fun in the beginning.
Thorn: Then they wouldn't stop stealing my stuff. $300 at first, which their dad paid back. (Sorry, but this dude is an idiot. Your son randomly comes home from school with $300 that he says his friend gave him and you don't make the connection? Wtf bro?) Then my iTouch. Which was returned, quite a time later because again, the dad is a total idiot. Then about $50 and 200 Euro which I never got back. This was after locks were installed on the doors.
Rose: With a combination of things, and the last thing, I finally convinced my mom to move out.
Rose: Everything since then has been great.
Rose: Started HS and it's awesome. Made great friends.
Rose: Get to see my Orlando friends more than I expected I would.
Thorn: Oh, Eli's (best friend's) mom still hates me for various pranks we pulled when we were together and AIM conversations that were intercepted. So refuses to let him hang out with me.
Rose: Which made Sunday's mall trip all the more interesting. We didn't know she was in the mall while we were, so when she called him, we went out of the mall and into the parking lot to avoid her, but saw her leave. We weren't sure it was her, so continued our adventure army style.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss
