Started out "meh," but then I got my first steady job and everything went well. Also, there wasn't any major tragedy whatsoever among my family, my father got his promotion, my brother had his first son... so it's kinda good. I rate it 8/10.

Mixed. In the summer, I finally came back home to the U.S. after spending three years overseas in Japan; by the end of my time there, I was really fed up with my job and living there, but I miss some of the people I met there.
Now I'm in grad school, and while I've been getting good grades, searching for work and internships has been one failure after another. I've been rejected for a bunch of internships, and I just lost the part-time job I had as a server at a bar, because the manager decided not to keep me on. On the other hand, I've met a lot of people in my class, and have a more active and robust social life right now than I've ever had in my life.
Good: 1)Was able to travel this past year. Went to Las Vegas for a 2nd time, Provo Utah for the BYU/Utah game, Dallas for the Vikings/Cowboys game, and countless trips up to Minneapolis 2)Established myself within the media industry in the city I live in. With that, took a leap-of-faith in switching from a part-time radio job to another part-time radio job in which the opportunity looked better. Opportunity paid off as now I'm full-time and working in sports. 3) Bought myself a new car. 4) Continued to manage to keep all my friends close 5) Honored to be in a couple weddings of my close friends. 6) Attended the last ever event at the Metrodome (Along with the other two division games between GB and CHI)
Bad: 1) Lost my Grandmother right at the beginning of the year. 2) Lost my dog just a few weeks ago. 3) The constant frustration of not knowing if I will ever make it in my career field, if I'm working in the right place, and if I'd ever be able to move out on my own. Luckily this is over now.
