    For me, it were these 18 incidents:



    OMG, I'm still SO HAPPY!!!

    OK yes, panem et circenses, but that's just me. Ignore the silly music.

    This is NOT a football thread! Feel free to post whatever comes to your mind about 2014!

    Coming home from Qatar after six months, with the knowledge that I can do something like that again, if necessary. That's what I liked about 2014.

    Also - doing some "friends tidying" when I got back. That felt pretty good.

    Maybe some other stuff. Who knows?

    Never having to go to Qatar, or anywhere else in the vicinity, after having gone for six very long months a long time ago - and knowing it won't be necessary. That's something feckin' GREAT about 2014.

    It was the same great thing that made Indiana barely tolerable, when I saw troops on CNN eating MRE's in the back of their Bradley IFV in a bombed-out church in Macedonia - and realized from the bumper number that it was the unit I would otherwise have been with.

    Otherwise, For this year, finishing off my "maintenance" for my CompTIA Security + continuing education requirements (and get a bit of work on my CISSP) a year early despite having had to start a year late. It's not been a great year (or several - parents dying kind of blows), but it was nice to get the damned thing out of the way so that nobody can use THAT to threaten outsourcing me...

    P.S. Loz, did this "tidying" involve pretty girls in a bathtub? Or am I putting too nice a spin on it?

    You're putting a Merv spin on it, that's for sure.

    Anywhore ... all in all, a good 2014 by my standards :)

    The S&P 500. For the 2nd year in a row.

    Also
    South Park: The Stick of Truth

    and Yuck I got out of security back in the late 1990's.

    It's a losing battle with management and reality - I do VOIP and certs with TLS but thats it.

    1.) Finishing the fall semester of hell with all A's and one B.
    2.) Spending the holidays with my love.
    3.) Making some good friends from my creative writing class.
    4.) feeling more confident in my goals.

    I wish I had been in Loz's tub when he got back. >.>

    Getting my promotion!
    Distancing myself further from my parents, managing one of their attempts to push me around better.
    Not being as sick as last year, and not as frequent either, just the occassional really tough times.
    My nice summer holidays, spending time on my own and being happy.
    A friend of mine turning from cat hater into crazy cat woman with kittens.
    A friend of mine buying his first flat.
