You don't have to elaborate, or anything. Just a mark.
Probably the best year of my life.
...elaborate on the rules a little here?
last 6 months 7.5
2nd half was in particular a massive improvment, much better then 2010
big fat zero.
Bit of a curate's egg really.
I'm downgrading it to a 6
2011 8 (recount)
2007/2008 shit times =(
In 1976, no one died, in 1977, no one died, in 1978, no one died...
Averages out at a 7.4. Happy with that.
ELABOARATION ON THE MARK, NOT THE REASONING: 4 seems to be below average without meaning completely disatrous and sympathy-worthy. I hope my 4 indicates that.
You do the fucking math(s) (6)
I know I didn't specify so I will split the difference.
probably the best year of my life
fuck you all
:( to you too? does that work?
next year you'll have a 10, I know it
(this is a lie)
then it shouldn't really be affected by anything that's happened during the year.
I'm going to go for 0.
I award 2011 the score of: pineapple/10
Mark van Bommel
I award Mark Knopfler to the past year, on account of it, and him, being pretty bad at times, but nowhere near as bad as some would have you believe. Especially the early stuff.
(Sorry, M Twain, even if if it is your birthday today, and some people love ya, that shit don't resonate over here)
improving all the time tho.
Remind me again, what criteria are we using?
Determined by chance, whim, or impulse, and not by necessity, reason, or principle.
Determined by or arising from whim or caprice rather than judgment or reason.
i think 10 is better than 0, beyond that anything goes, but no elaborating on your methodology or reasoning.
...could someone summarise with a checklist?
...I would like to revise my mark to a 7. When do the results of this thing come out?
shines gout pie light into the sky
And, erm, *Chumbawamba?
fucks sake. half marks make it out of 20, and something like 8.3 makes it out of 100. just fucking plump for a number between 0 and 10 fucks sake.
a billion (long scale)
Nut Up and Choose a Proper Number.
I'm hoping that next month is so good that it brings up my average dramatically.
Kill it Theo.
a) You didn't outline the criteria with which we were supposed to mark
2) There was no explanation of how the results were going to be collated
d) Communication during the thread was poor
...that still doesn't contain any particularly useful information.
kind of suggests you can if you want to. I didn't elaborate but as it's arbritrary it's meaningless anyway. So why do you or anyone even care? How has this got to >100 replies? GAH!
autumn going down to 5/4 and the last month gone down to 3/2/1 (would be just 1 if i didn't have my boyfriend and some good friends)
hoping it picks up/next year is awesome
12 4 (cos it's Xmas and some folk like that)
Average score: 6 (rounded up from 5.8333)
...the opening posts are fairly clear on this.
in the opening post, i feel that this has been widely discussed and we should move on.
one thing that happened made this a terrible year but also loads of great things happened but they were more like seeing amazing bands and having good times with friends so i dont know how to compare them.
ask me again in a month or so
We have the morning threads for hearing about the intricacies and minutae of people's lives Theo. This is pure STATISTICS!
For the end of year spreadsheet.
there's a correlation between exposure to arcade fire albums and miserablism.
Bar charts and pie charts to follow in the new year.
you could easily read that 'you don't HAVE to elaborate' as having a passive aggressive tone meaning the OP didn't really want to hear about peoples bad times in the year past, but didn't want to be a dick about it.
Then your mark is, by definition, not arbitrary.
...should have outlined the rules a bit clearer from the outset.
waits until he's losing then brings up a single point of ambiguity in the rules, thereby ruining the game for everyone else whilst he sits in a huff.
RUINED PENTARGO, RUINED, FOR EVERYONE, BY YOU (and theo, but that's to be expected).
...I'll go raise it higher up this thread.
Fuck you, Pentargo.
...my attempts to codify are not welcome. I shall therefore withdraw with my dignity intact.
would have been a 10 three months ago.
A sigh mix.
State of world: 1
Best New Year.
S'been pretty good overall, starting Uni and stuff.
-Constantly at the doctors for anemia
-Diagnosed with depression
-person I was in love with, had been with for three years and who had asked me to move to another city and live with them broke up with me.
-the week before 60% of my degree happened in 5 weeks of horror.
-had already got onto PGCE course in city we were meant to move to, so had to find strangers to live with etc.
-still sleeping with him for months afterwards with completely fucks with my head
-he tells me (during unprotected sex) that he's sleeping with someone new, traveling long distance to meet her all the time
- had to explain (as a biologist) to my friend that her grandad was going to die that night.
- boy turns out to be just as bad a friend as he was a boyfriend. Have to cut him out. Miss him every day.
+PGCE is knackering but rewarding and definitely the right job for me.
+ Manchester is lovely.
Are you only rating yourself 2/10 in bed?
Manchester IS lovely though and you should find no trouble meeting lots of lovely new people there.
thank you, i hope so!
I've not had the best year either. but manchester is brill and the dissers are nice (hi). where are you doing your pgce?
thank you (and hi!). Hope your 2012 is better. I'm doing it at Manchester Uni, and my next placement is in rusholme, so properly manchester-y.
but that just ain't meeeee hey!
Step in the right direction. Could do better though.
SORRY MONKEY CHEESE OUT OF TEN XD
Skint, started job in Brighton, was living in Brighton, got my end away a bit, broke up with girl, went to Berlin, went to some cool parties, more music journalism, decided to move to London, left job, moved to London with no job, kind of worked out, wanted to do something different but now do exactly the same thing for more money, going out more, going to more gigs, need to meet a girl though... and loving London.
This year's been quite dramatic in parts... but it also seemed to have lacked something that would have made it amazing. I wish I didn't work in financial services. I kind of feel trapped in it a bit. I've learnt some good non-work skills and I want to do my MA, then I make some random life decision which means the finances to do it are all fucked up.
I've enjoyed this year but something's not right somewhere. I think I just need to meet more people in London really (HI DiSers!).
I don't want to sound like I'm having a moan though... I have a wonderful life compared to many others on this planet.
was about a 4 then came skyrim
scout has had the worst year, then brusma, then still_here.
Sorry guys :(
is fine. Thanks though.
I'm sure someone gave it a 0.
the zeroes i thought were protest scores
