    MY 2012 so far:

    Moved in with MY GIRLFRIEND and her roommate: best decision ever, new apartment is cleaner/in a better neighborhood than the old one, everyone gets along well and generally shares out chores and stuff really well.

    Lost my job due to "lack of work" / owners selling the company : On the one hand it kind of sucks, but freelance work is slowly picking up and I don't have to leave the house at 6:00 AM and get back at 7:00 PM thanks to a horrible commute. 2013 is going to be the year of building up clients.

    Thankfully no real medical disasters and the family has been pretty stable. Acute lack of money has me a little worried.

    LISTS

    Favorite movie of the year: Didn't actually watch a whole bunch of movies this year, I enjoyed Skyfall and Brave.

    Shows: Kids on the Slope? Again, didn't watch a whole lot of TV either.

    Game: Even though I spent like 400 hours playing Diablo 3, I actually have fonder memories of my 40-something hours with X-COM. Really should get Dishonoured at some point.

    Album: Channel ORANGE

    I moved out of my parents' place and started making a concerted effort to not be such a lazy boring shut-in. It's... an ongoing process, but I'm doing things with people more and exercising more and generally being less terrible so as a whole I'm gonna give this year a thumbs-up-but not very high up just kinda enough that you can be sure it's up and not down.

    2012:

    Settled in with current job. Kicked ass. Believe I will stay here for the long haul.

    Obtained and kept a girlfriend (third and hopefully final), who will be moving in with me in 2013.

    Nothing seriously negative happened all year. Best year of my life, upward trending into 2013 which I suspect will be the first year of the rest of my life

    Favorite Movie: ehh

    Shows: what?

    Game: MLB 2012 The Show

    Album: who?

    I'll go into detail about what I think the bests of the year in everything are, but I'm just saying right now that Channel Orange was the best thing to happen to music this year.

    i went to a lot of shows this year

    a lot

    high points: andrew w.k. at 9:30, dispatch at constitution hall, grouplove at 9:30 (just last night!), phantogram at black cat

    disappointed that i missed alt+j at rock and roll hotel, finding out that they were there exactly one day later, but i have tickets for the show at 9:30 in march

    uh other than that the year just kind of slid past

    nothing major happened and that's okay

    Oh yeah also graduated, got a job and moved out of the condo shared by a borderline psychopath.

    So, that's progress I suppose.

    But still - pretty proud of the not touching wieners thing, mostly.

    the first 3/4 of the year was just me working at a shitty job, living with my dad in my hometown that no longer had any friends of mine

    then in early october i moved to the city i've dreamt of living in for years, got a job within 6 days of moving, and got my own house with a cool roommate and, barring money for gifts this past month, i'm cash-positive with a healthy savings that i plan on paying off the last of my student loans with once i've built up a good enough cushion

    p good year overall, nobody died!

    mensch you double-listing campion means it becomes a double positive and therefore campion is no longer your boyfriend!

    that's math

    I worked too much on something I'm insanely proud of, moved offices three times, got a heckuva raise, discovered Dru has the beetus, spent waaaaaay too much time on the internet, got angry at the end of ME3, played not nearly enough GW2, was flabbergasted at the atrocious things coming out of the mouths of Republican politicians, watched my little bro get engaged, started getting my anxiety under control and discovered I'll be moving to Portland for sure sometime this spring.

    Been a good year.

    Me too.

    Goddamn it. :(

    I made up for it by getting to spend a summer on a resort island getting paid to do basically my dream job though. So that's cool.

    The good- got my ass in gear in regards to my education, and so far it looks like I'll be pulling a 3.3 or 3.4 for my first semester. Found the guts to ask girls out.

    The bad- lost both my grandparents on my mom's side, an aunt on my dad's, and my dog. Got turned down by all the girls I asked out.

    2012
    Got back into dating after an 8 year hiatus. I also got a job with the government and I'm closer to graduating from college (after almost 12 years). So this year has instantly been better than the last 8.

    Movie: Not sure, I enjoyed the Avengers, the newest Batman, Skyfall.
    Game: Kerbal Space Program
    Shows: The girl and I started and finished watching Louie and Wilfred.
    Album: Not sure really
    Thread: Every politics thread.

    2012 so far:
    - Saw a great girl for a few months, ended amiably between us
    - Left job in Oregon due to not wanting to be there anymore.
    - Left Portland due to not wanting to be there anymore.
    - Moved back to San Francisco
    - Found a great apartment in the city with a roommate who I don't hate and went to college with
    - Got an amazing new job that pays roughly 4 times what I made in Oregon
    - Made a bunch of new friends
    - Went to both PAXes and everyone was lovely
    - Visited Kochi/Dave in Amsterdam and that was a blast
    - Stepmom had a stroke, Mom is probably going into rehab for alcoholism soon, Dad/Bro are on high blood pressure medicine way too early in their lives
    - Finally got my knee checked out to find lots of really bad problems. Hopefully getting fixed completely in 2013

    Favorite movie of the year: Didn't see many movies this year but I liked Batman and the Hobbit

    Shows: Started watching Happy Endings this year, best choice.

    Game: I've not played many games this entire year now. Journey and GW2 were both fun though.

    Overall this year has been absolutely awesome, probably one of the best I've ever had.

    Nothing. Matters.
