I can honestly say mine wasn't all that bad. I got settled into my first apartment, and also got settled into the best job I have held in a long time. I also purchased a car for the first time completely on my own and am already well ahead on paying it off, and despite that I saw my personal finances improve to the best they have ever been. My only real regret of the year is that I was not able to do more in terms of acting; my schedule has rendered community theater all but impossible, and it has been years since I did any film or television work. But now that I am settled in I am hoping to maybe change that by pursuing some weekend classes and re-signing with various casting companies to see if I can take any bit work on my days off. And of course it would have been nice to have gotten a little more "action" during the year, if you all get my meaning *aherm*. But overall I can say 2013 was a dern good year for me and I certainly hope all of you can say the same.

At the start of the year my grandfather suffered a heart attack & was put in the hospitial for the night He had breathing issues so that he was hooked on a breathing device Then he went to get surgery & was gone for 12 days Then in April I was let go from my job Then for 3 days this week me & grandpa lost power at our house.
I would say it was a step up from 2012, even though I thought 2012 was a good year for me. -I worked a lot during the season and even though I got furloughed at the end, I still worked my ass off and never missed a day during that season. -I got more of a social life than before. -Even though I was already active, I started getting more active by doing strength-training. -I got more and more serious about my goals in life and taking part in the campus newspaper really showed my seriousness.
I know that my year could have been better, but it was still good. Again, I thought it was a little better than 2012 for me.

Overall, pretty good. Everyone in my family is pretty healthy...physically. Mentally...that's another story. Built my first gaming PC. Quit Facebook. Got a raise, and was told that they eventually want me to take over the company. Started buying more locally, fresh grown produce and other local craft products. Expanded my vinyl collection by leaps and bounds. Taught myself how to do web design for my company. Took up some light skateboarding. Started collecting comics again, as my local record shop started supplying them. My dad gave me his old cast iron smoker/griller. Paid off/down some old debt, which will finally make me debt free in 2014...hopefully. Got to see all of the following in concert: Queens of the Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane's Addiction, Reignwolf, Weezer, Mudhoney and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Pearl Jam came out with a new album. Went to my first comic book convention, met Bruce Campbell and had a great convo.

The worst year of my life.
I lost my Father, my Grandfather, my great Uncle, and a close family friend within the span of 5 months. My Father's death, in particular, was shockingly sudden and unexpected. I can't put into words how profoundly sad this year has been.
Got a job I absolutely love, made solid progress in my hobbies, got rid of a lot of people who were negative influences on my life while fully embracing those who were a huge positive, realized what a jerk I'd be for large portions of my life and decided to stop and really smell the roses. 2014 can bring it on.
Terrible. Still in a temporary house, Dad's still had health issues, back and forth between my sister and the year has ended with me pretty much knowing I can't go to MAGfest because we're in the f***ing mountains.
- Started off bad with familial issues. - Slacked off in school. Eventually I started to get back on track in the Spring and passed 11th grade. - In the summer, I went to my first RAW with my brother, had an awesome time. - Now I'm a senior and it sucks.

Pretty good, now that I'm thinking about it.
- Self confidence is higher than it's ever been. - Finally ended my miserable high school experience and am now a freshman in college. - Made some new friends after being a loner for years. - Started writing poetry which is a great outlet.
So yeah, I'm ready for 2014.
No pictures, no gimmicks
Magic's list of people he's f***ing with rn: John Cena (Da God) Rey Mysterio (Living Legend) Handsome Rusev (New Japan, strap him up) R-Truth (He saves every segment he's in) Charlotte (The Queen) Hiroshi Tanahashi (Da God of NJPW) Bandido (Mans is too nice) Ricky Starks (Stroke Daddy)
It was pretty good. I got to go to WrestleMania 29, and the Hall of Fame, I was able to get my Christmas shopping done early (which never happens). The only downside I would say, is when I had a seizure in June, that put me in the hospital for a few hours. I've felt fine since. I hope for a great 2014 for all of us!!
Had better. Got made redundant via email while on holiday. Tomorrow I'm officially unemployed. Probably for the best, it was a shit job for a small family firm that treated me like an outsider even after 9 years. Anyway, my Nan broke her hip and on top of everything else wrong with her it was pretty much the last straw for her, just a matter of time now.
So yeah, things can only get better from here on in.
Aside from my daughters first birthday and a trip to SC.......seperated from my wife (getting divorced), which lead to me losing my house and not seeing my daughter as much. Aanndd with child support, I had to get a 2nd job. And I'm back on anti-depressants.
