When was yours? JOYFUL THREAD!!
From reigning Premier League champions to finishing 12th. Disastrous.
no close friends or family have died this year so far. I'm nowhere near as sad as I was when my granny died.
every year is pretty shit.
It's been really, really awful and it still is.
had shit job for most of year, quit for better job, new company goes bust within my first month. Get depressed. Lose Girlfriend.
Even Norwich getting promoted didn't help me through this shitttty year.
as it featured my first year of uni which was utterly utterly dreadful, and 3 members of my family died.
said year of uni lasted into 2003, but by that point i had dealt with the fact that the course and university and location and basically everything was wrong for me, that i would be going to a different uni and doing a different course the following academic year, so i just played on whatever the latest iss pro evo/pes game was out on the ps2 for the rest of the year.
The last year-and-a-bit has been the best though; hopefully you've got a good one around the corner too.
Lost nearly everything.
This is such an emo thread!
It'd probably have to be July 2010 - July 2011 really, 'cos of some pretty sad stuff going on. Was definitely more of an emo tart about much lesser stuff six or seven years ago.
Cheer up everyone!
Exam revision --> Exams --> Unemployed and Skint for a month (July) --> Working 10 hours a day for 5 weeks without a day off, all of which was away from home/friends etc --> Mid September no longer cunts a summer.
Other than that, in 2007 my parents split up (and then got back together again), I had about 2 friends, went through a long spell of depression, & got arrested for shoplifting when I didn't actually do anything.
or at least since childhood when your brain is just wired to be constantly happy
Where everything probably seemed a lot worse than it really was because of being so ridiculously teenage. This year's had some pretty dark moments, although first year at uni hall experience has really lifted that.
or june + july of 2008 were shit. never had a whole year that was terrible, things change so much each year. now that i'm not in education that will no doubt change tho...
Dad got diagnosed with terminal cancer. Dad turned into raving lunatic who's spent all my mum's money and tried to kill her. Mum had to move in with me in my small poxy flat. Plus he keeps ringing me up to help him with ebay stuff (so he can get into more debt) and when i don't he tells me he never wants to see me again and yesterday he told my sister that he was gonna pay some guys to beat me up.
This year might have topped it though.
this year (or at least the last three months) has probably been the worst in recent memory for me. The summer sucked a bit, which dragged me into some light depression, and being unemployed sucks. I didn't really mind being broken up with, I just wished it had happened sooner (ie. when I actually tried to do it myself). Discovering someone close to me was actually one of the most deceitful people I've ever had the misfortune of coming across was a bit of a disappointment too.
BUT HEY THIS YEAR HAS BEEN PRETTY SWELL TOO. I went to Alton Towers so it can't have been that bad. I'll just have to try my best to make it better again instead of wallowing in my own mistakes.
But I really can't complain overall. This has been a great year so far, too, so I'm going to keep counting my blessings rather than dwell on the bad stuffs.
2011 has been fucking ace.
2006 was a shit-ish year.
Only just discovered this phenomenon. Big fan of that.
Just cried and shat myself a lot.
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you
because i feel more like a normal person than i ever have before. the previous 23ish years of my life have all been pretty terrible, so i'm not gonna sit down and think in depth about which was the absolute worst one. http://up-ship.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/awesome.png
I can't think of a genuinely BAD year I've ever had. There's been a LOT of downs, more so than most people I know (suicides, break-ups, deaths, divorces, going YEARS without getting laid - YEARS etc.) but I can't think of a single year where I can't look back and go 'that was on the whole quite fun, wasn't it?'.
Had the best holiday to California, Kenny came home, I got a car etc.
My worst so far was probably 2002 or 2003 when I was having shit fun at school.
I feel alot better now. 2010 was the worst
Ill and off work, living back with my parents in a tiny house in an uneventful village in the shire while my friends all coupled up and got married. Total suckage.
mid twenties transition period.
was a shocker.
absolute rollercoaster, so some amazing times and some god awful times, but i think the former were largely the result of the latter (ROLLERCOASTER LIFE WAHEYYYY) and the fact that i was living alone for the first time so social normaties sorta ceased to exist especially when the Saisnburys over the road did 8 cans of Strongbow for £5 and i was at the tail end of a total atomic breakup and yeah.
still, DiS at the Barfly nights, they were pretty good
last two years of school, can't remember what years they were, spent most of them crying and fighting. 7 years ago.
hopefully it'll stay as the record holder in this category, would take quite a lot for any upcoming year to top it.
Deaths in the family and being in my shitty little hometown for 9 months trying to save money again to move away.
mum, dad and last remaining grandparent died. the only way is up.. baby.
... struggled to cope with the break up of my 7 year relationship (just before Christmas), got clinically depressed, stopped seeing everyone, my band of the last two years broke up just as we were getting good support slots (JoFo ffs!), WoW's Cataclysm expansion wasn't very good, I'm being made redundant in less than a month...
BUT... recently discovered that girls want to sex me and this is a very good thing! Primavera was the bestest holiday evar! The new WoW patch looks absolutely amazing! So now I am quite happy. Hurrah!!! :D
i finally realised i didn't love my then long term girlfriend, fell in love with my best mate, which ended in disaster, and spent 30% of my year on a oil platform in the middle of the north sea.
considering my grandfather AND my best mates dad passed away THIS year, 2011 has been fucking AMAZING to balance those low moments out.
Shut up moousee
Dad died,Two of my best mate's died,Lost my job through bullshit reasons,went off on a bender due to all of that happening in two months. Smashed a lad in the face with a chair over tbh nothing he was just pissing me off outside a pub,just about scraped not going down for that,was really not the best of year's,been so much better since.
must have been 2005. i didn't have a job and just spent all my time indoors in my dads house online and doing drawing and doing hair experiments, posting pictures of myself on livejournal and art.
there wasnt much online so i searched out music and made playlists and refreshed livejournal.
i didn't do anything and i felt very passively depressed.
moved back to my mums in 2006, started listening to xfm and sucking up all the shit indie, only had dial up internet, got skinny...still a shit year but not as bad.
This makes for heavy reading, you all need hugs. Alright, most.
Am worrying that things are spiralling for me, on the surface fine, lovely wife and children but career going nowhere, life not really going anywhere and being crushed by weight of responsibilities, I'm habitually alienating or being alienated from most of my friends and getting very reclusive, band is dead in the water, am worrying it's all going to implode at some point. So! Get down to the bookies and put some money on next year, eh? Ho ho...
Nearly died in the former. The other is more recent and the details do not need recounting.
2011 and 2005 were a bit shit.
