This year is almost gone. How has it been?
The year we all know as 2009 is almost over, and it's been a pretty good one. And I can say that because I have two ways of measuring the awesomeness of this past year, both included in this journal: One that shows how good all of you
think it has been, and one that shows all the fun stuff
I've made during the year.
The former of those two will be familiar to my devoted awesome devwatchers. They've tirelessly answered poll after poll every month, giving a
thumbs up or
thumbs down on their general situation on that first day in the month. So, let's have a look at how it went down!
All in all, on average every month was 72.5% thumbs up
and 27.5% thumbs down
. I'd call that a pretty amazing year! You guys have obviously had a blast, and the happiest month was June with 80% thumbs up
Someone's had a good summer.
The chart doesn't seem to be low in the "normal" final/exam months, so you guys don't seem to have let that make your mind gloomy.
Since this is a personal journal, I'll also use it to talk a little bit about my
year: It's also been a really good year for me; I've done some cool things and had some very amazing opportunities for which I am very grateful. In the below I am trying to visualise all the things that has happened to me during the past 365 days. And thus, there are monthly calendars for each month. On every coloured date
, something (relevant) happened. You can move your mouse over it to see what, and click to go to the related destination. They're colour coded like so:
are journals here on dA,
are my favourite songs at the time, featured on my weblog elec's song of the now
, while the
dates are various projects, big and small, that I have finished. Have a looksee!
Another thing: Writing journals here on dA has evolved into an entire art form for me, and I'd like to mention what I think are my three best journals of the past year. These are:
So yeah, to sum up this huge journal: it's been an amazing year for me and I hope it has for you too. Even though it sounds so stinkingly cliché, I want to thank all of you for your support during the year. I wish all y'all the happiest of new years! Happy 2010
, and thanks for oh nine
