Almost flawless, but shoulder dislocation, and I lost a pair of nice shoes and some rum on a train.
it was Jimmy that helped push it up to a 2.
Rises in the cost of postage is the final straw.
Struggles with the job, general lonliness of living away from home and friends, but tempered by a couple of great holidays, and meeting bunch of nice new people.
Onwards and upwards.
finished EP but wasted £800 on mastering at the exchange
only went on 1 holiday for a week was good though
i did move to Leeds, reformed band and have written some of our best tracks yet.
think I'll go for 6/10
7 if i have 2 holidays
8 if i get a new girlfriend
9 if I loose a stone
10 if i get to tour
there next years markers/stuff missing
The crushing emptyness of everyday existence haunts me no matter the relative circumstances. I'm going to score some brown for Christmas Day.
no s******* the b*** d***** off for christmas. I think you'd be unduly concerned anyway, unless you think I have somehow charmed your current 'beau'?
I've cracked your code.
Work's been great. All debt paid off. A couple of exciting projects started which'll take off next year. Met loads of great new folk.
Great year, basically.
are you worried the odds now mean 2011 wont be as good for you? ying and your yang and all that.
next year is an assured 10. Gotta be.
i get ya
and I can't really be bothered.
Broadly - spent just under half of the year unemployed and everything that goes with that = 0/10
People and experiences - all perfect = 10/10
Reaching the end of my contract in October without being able to sort anything was a ballache, but I got some great experience which has lead to my move to London. Nice holiday too. Currently 7.5/10 but that could increase if I can manage to find somewhere nice to live before the new year.
- ace music, ace gigs, 1 festival
- really good 2 week holiday in Slovenia and Italy with my boyfriend over Easter, plus a weekend in Amsterdam
- finished my Masters modules, just the dissertation to go
- realised I have the best friend EVER in the whole entire world
- granny dying meant the first funeral I ever had to go to was quite tough
- drinking too much on a few occasions making me feel a bit shameful
yeah.... 9/10 really, the crappy things aren't that significant :)
NO! AVERAGE! THEREFORE 7/10!
Ankles: remain weak and embarrassing -1
Discovered straightners +1
Retired from women's rounders -1
Games Workshop remains viable for another fiscal year +1
Your year was a 5
I was either unemployed or earning £90 a week for over half the year, which really limited what I was able to do. Also lost touch with friends and failed to have the guts to send my poetry off to any magazines. I got the distinction I wanted but it kind of felt like a let down and I didn't celebrate it.
On the plus side, there's a chance I might be getting a permanent job in the new year, I've somehow managed to save money, and I had some wonderful times with my boyfriend (we got back together on wrestlemania night!). Roastthemonaspit's wedding was my highlight.
Well, maybe not the last few lines :)
who does not get to celebrate the anniversary of their relationship by staying up to watch a wresting ppv
America, new lady, multiple pay rises, met loads of new DiS friends, had some incredible life-changing moments, stopped smoking.
Loses 3 points for the lack of a decent summer.
+ Moved out of boring Kent and into a London flat with 3 of my best mates
+ Secured a permanent position at work and the pay rise that came with it
+ Became an uncle for the first time ever
+ Proudly saw my little sister get married
+ First Glastonbury and it was absolutely brilliant
+ Some amazing gigs and albums this year
Can't think of any specific negatives rather than the usual grinds and inabilty to function as a normal 24 year old man.
Theres no point living if you give yourself less than 10/10 for anything
started off good
went really really shit
ending really good
10/10 and wouldn't change a second of it.
Fucking hell Meths.
HUGE TENS and dismal noughts.
But I'm feeling pretty much 9.5 :D
the answer is yes.
I want to know who you were initially asking, it will sway my decision
It's okay, I undersatnd.
Also, I have just been asked on a date. Not by CG.
Thanks for yout time
absolutely loving being a dad so that bit is a 10
work has been stupidly stressful the past 4 months (and especially the past month, which can gtfo) but before that it was ok so that can have a 6
the rest of my life can have an 8
just to say - I'm generally going to be on hiatus from Dis for a little while - as great as you guys are and as much i enjoy the banter, there's a lot of stuff (primarily at work) that I need to get on top of (heh). I'll be back when I feel less out of control of it all.
xylo - lauren is going to keep me posted with open mic dates and i STILL intend to attend one!
thewarn/shucks/sadpunk - let me know when the next fenino is, yeah?
KNOCK. ON. WOOD.
I will look forward to your return, and hopefully meeting you at either a Fenino or an open-mic.
We'll try and look after the puns as best we can in your absence.
much love xx
1 taken off for family bollox
2 taken off for uni bollox
1 taken off for men bollox
life is always a mixed bag for me but the last two years have been miles ahead of those before it. so i can't give it less than a 6 just for that. i'm looking at it from the arse end of a confusing "relationship" (is it? who knows) and just being depressed and shit at life and verging on failure uni wise. urgh. could be worse though i spose
A massive improvement over 2009 all told. Done some great travel related things, been best man, had a fantastic year of music, had the best summer and moved to another country. The hardest bit has been that last bit, but I know it's only gonna set me up for a fantastic 2011, so it kinda cancels the badness out too. I've forgotten most of the other bad bits.
I was made redundant- :(
The redundancy cash made me rich beyond my wildest dreams- :D
My wildest dreams don't amount to much- :(
Crazy Taxi came out on Xbox- :D
They changed the soundtrack- :(
It went alright, I guess. I'll say ... 7.
Strong end to the year
really opened my eyes to some things.....
cheers for the insight
pretty fucking weak all things considered
(in poor mood, at work til 9 on Friday)
This is like the scene in The Simpsons when Moes runs out of beer and Homer starts sucking at the taps. We've exhausted every possible music rating / list of the year, what else can we do?
Rate the months of the year in order
Fishing spots of the year?
Country walks of the year?
Which day of the week has had a higher percentage of good days than others (will it be unanimously Friday? oooh the tension)
For the record. Jan - March 3, March-June 1, June - September 8, September - December 9.
I could list about twenty qualitative points, but they'd all be directly or indirectly girlfriend-related, which is a bit sad when you think about it.
Quarterly analysis does it for me.
another year in comfortable limbo
Very rubbish start to the year. Then work got a bit better and I started my website which has been the best thing I've ever done and given me some direction.
Then girl stuff which was ace then a bit rubbish.
Then massive life decision, jacked in my 'career' to move to Bristol, which has been good but my head is still rubbish and as a result so am I.
I'm more hopeful about next year than I was this time last year though so I'm going to give it a 6.4.
i' say possibly the best year yet
in this order...
.quit shit garage job
.started writing music reviews
.went to america
.had a great time doing masters
.finished with a decent result
.hooked up with the fittest bird i'll ever go out with on the day i hand in my dissertation
.get xmas job in hmv on the very day i gobble away the last scraps of my overdraft
.lost weight and got fit
.fulham get to the final of the wafa cup
all in all, a pretty good year. be greedy asking for a much better one really.
decent year but probably not as good as the 3 that came before it - to be fair, 2009 was hard to live up to. Too much work and routine this time, and not enough adventure and fun. Still, had some good times interspersed throughout, managed to go to 3 festivals which was awesome, and there was the prospect of some interesting romantic developments in the autumn but I seem to be stuck in a sort of friend-zone on that front.
Excellent summer - gigs aplenty and actually started succeeding with the whole song writing malarky.
Only really loses out because I've been so lazy with social stuff, lost contact with loads of people I wanted to meet up with so more effort will be needed next year.
started off a bit shit with glandular fever and loads of drama everywhere and had to leave uni and had a massive nervous breakdown but it all turned out for the best: had an excellent job for a good few months which earned me lots of dough, found the best place in the world to live and started taking happy pills. also i watched more horror films this year than any other year. nevermind yet more unrequited love and also being broke a lot and all that - all in all it's been one of the best years ever for me.
I spilled some salsa on a new shirt in March, otherwise...
