    My happiest moment this year was spectacular.


    I just ended up turning ten not too long ago. I spent a lot of my time playing card games and watching TV. On the television, I had noticed this cap that I really wanted had gone on sale. My mother purchased it for me and it fit like a glove (;D). Along with this, I had finally gotten a pet from the local shop down the corner. My mom fancied the owner so I got a special deal. It was this little guy who had never had an owner before. But low and behold, all good memories come with negative ones too. Because he had never been owned before, he was always a little fickle about how close I was to him. He'd always snip and yip at me. Eventually, we warmed to up one another after a horrid incident involving some birds and a bike.

    In any case, after recovery, I set out on what would mark my happiest day of my life. Now I travel with a black asian and a water specialist collecting different creatures as my pets in attempts to be the best trainer ever.

    When I got to see my family, after not seeing them for a few years. I was so happy.

    Mine was true. Had a spinal fusion. Was scared sihtless (misspelled on purpose). Have to wear an orthodic brace for 3 months, then physical therapy. I was just being honest. Funny thing is I'm on probation and have to go through a metal detector to get in. The hardware implanted will set it off every time.

    Also I was one of those who didn't get my prize a couple of tempmases ago so I'm a bit skeptical (JK).

    I guess my happiest memory is getting to meet old friends after years.

    I don't deny that the majority will be true, but it's a little suspicious that now the prize is a brand new Wii U there seem to be a fair number of new users with sob stories around here. Hope you feel better though, same goes for everyone who genuinely suffered this year.

    You didn't misunderstood anything. The thing we write has no actual influence on the result. It's just that some of us want to share their best moments of the year, and some of them need details to be perfectly understood. I admit I was carried by my own feelings while writing, though.

    For me, my best moment really was a feel-good moment for me, which I why I explained that even though it's tainted with the distinct possibility of further pain (the friend I spoke of may be going to prison for something she didn't do), simply hearing from her and knowing she still thinks of me made me feel so much better that I was able to shrug off all the bullshit I've suffered in the last 12 months. I'd obviously like to win, but I would have posted the story whether there was a prize or not, because hearing these feel good stories can bring just a little joy to the lives of others. If my story helps give someone else suffering from hardship just a little hope and helps them through, then it served its purpose whether I win or not.

    We have the same logic behind our stories, it seems.

    I hope you'll win, though.

    Hmm, my happiest moment is probably finding out that I was going to live in Cyprus for a while. It sounded great on paper; "It will be like a constant holiday!". For the first few weeks it was, but things are never as good as they first seem. Looking back at it now, I'm happy with the year I spent there despite the harsh realities that I faced.

    It should really be becoming a father but the day after my son was born I recieved my limited Mario 3DS from club nintendo, transferred my old system onto it and took my old Aqua blue to trade in. Thay week Game had a trade in pffer so I could do a straight swap- a year old 3ds with shinobi and sonic generations for a vita with a 4gb card and golden abyss.

    The kid was quite nice too I guess!

    My happiest memory was when my mother got all the seasons of Supernatural. She was so happy with her B-day gifts and we spent weeks watching the whole series.

    You need to post more. We don't get to talk the often unless it's on Facebook. Kudos for the Pokemon reference you sly bastard.

    Best day of this year is a hard one ....

    To be honest I might even say today, had a really awesome day out, went somewhere new ( Wigan ), got loads of new clothes, had a really nice lunch and tea and to finish it off, had a honeycomb hot chocolate with cream from Costa . Was just a really awesome day, then came home to play some new games that I'd bought with the Mrs :)
