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?

5/5

Why? Because I'm still around to rate it happy.gif

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.

5/5

Why? Because I'm still around to rate it happy.gif


Ya know despite everything I actually thought 5/5 for the same reason but as I'm still not sure what's wrong with me healthwise so I picked 4/5.

Despite a sh*t start to the year after losing my bro, getting dumped, smashing up my car and also my body, moving to a place I didn't like or know anyone, not having a stable job and suffering from depression I decided that ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH! I'm not sure HOW I managed to do it but I have achieved SO much this year. And it took Facebook for me to realise that oddly enough! laugh.gif Their photo collage of my year really made me realise I have so many wonderful friends and have acheived so much with them and by myself.



Rose: my trip round the world, being single and liking (not loving but getting there!) it, making lots of new friends, overcoming fears (of being single and drowning by trying scuba), meeting more new people smile.gif, playing my violin lots, ending the year with a new job and shrugging off what I thought I needed for a while, enjoying Xmas for the 1st time in a long time and while being single (as you can see it's still a bit of an issue for me wink.gif), and generally doing so much with my life in one year smile.gif

Thorns: the beginning (see above) and my health but I'm trying to be positive about that and enjoying my life. Being miserable about being poorly really doesn't help me enjoy my life and also if it's serious (god forbid!) I want to be enjoying my life however much I have of it...maybe miserable I know but let's face it it we don't know how long we've got so let's enjoy what we have and NOW biggrin.gif

Enjoy what you have and hope for what you lack
