      We have the Rant Thread, so why not the opposite? Declare your great success here.

      Mine to start:

      I've had a 453whp T-Roof Nissan 300ZX for the entire weekend. Spent 4 hours blasting around the country with a lady friend. I'm going out and getting hammered for a friends bday dinner and I'm also going to Nuite Blanche tonight!

      Oh, and I finally got a set of adapters for my new wheels!

      Yesterday I got up, had a delicious cup of coffee, met a beautiful girl at the Museum of Modern Art and had an awesome time seeing priceless and inspiring pieces of art from some of the most famous artists ever.

      Got lunch and ate on a blanket in Central Park, went home, had some sexy time, then had pizza and beer while watching a movie about a typeface that she was enthralled by.

      I need to still see Objectified. I've heard many good things and missed it at the theater.

      I wrote, directed, and helped edit a 6 minute and 52 second movie this weekend for the 72 Fest in Frederick, MD. It's a comedy/slasher flick about fart jokes.

      I'll just repost my Facebook status from about a week ago:
      Let me paint you a picture: Head in to my Credit Union to see about mortgage refinancing. Turns out I can save almost $400 a month (or more) on my payment if I refinance with my choice of closing fees. HUGE savings with minimal overhead. I also refinance my car loan, saving pennies but taking my business away from Bank of America and getting a $100 gift card. Walk outside, it's just rained - there's a cool breeze so I drive home with the windows open, and one of my favorite songs comes on the radio. What a glorious afternoon.

      I was the first of my family to graduate a 4 year college degree program with a bachelor's degree. I got a job before I graduated that I enjoy. The salary is, according to my research, a bit above the average starting salary for fresh graduates in this field.

      F-yeah I'm tooting my own horn. How's it sound?

      Successfully "completed" my first "show car". Did a wire tuck while the engine was out for a color change. Also color-matched the engine to the interior. On initial start-up I turned the key to hear "click" and my stomach dropped out. My mind started racing with all the wires and connectors I unpinned and re-pinned. I gave the starter a few solid smacks while someone was turning the key for me and it roared back to life. The car hasn't been running for well over a month now. Once started, she purred like a kitten. I have to put on one more clamp on a charge pipe and it's going back to its owner. Via a beat run

      I recently fell in love with a wonderful girl. She was just a really cool g/f, but it just hit me going to sleep one night and I just blurted out those three scary words. As someone who doesn't say those without meaning it, it's exciting, scary, and wonderful, especially to hear them back from someone who has never said it and meant it to someone else.

      Everything else in life is great and all, but that's more important to me than my start up company negotiating on seed funding, thus starting me off working for myself with a few others, and getting ourselves money rather than my current bosses. I can always start another company, but girls like this don't come along often.

      Wrapped up my best quarter in 2 years (damn economy), $1.7M. My lovely wife tells me she's taking the kids for the weekend to visit her best friend out of town....Lions won, Tigers won, Red Wings won....

      So it was road trip time. Took a tour, absolutely nowhere, had lunch, and drove back.


      This thread is way more encouraging than the rant thread!

      I sharted earlier but I forced my bum crack shut so it wouldn't leak down to my underwear.

      I staggered my way to the bathroom and wiped it clean.

      Started as VP for social and mobile at a major public affairs agency here in DC two weeks ago. I've already sold in $175K in new business, and have a potential couple million already in development. I think I'm off to a good start.

      Better still, my old boss from my AutoTrader days, who was only good at being an utter ******* to me and taking credit for my work, and who left for a SVP job at a major PR agency four months ago...was fired Friday.

      This! The first time saying it and meaning it, then hearing it back and knowing she means it to is amazing. Mine was this summer.

      However, I must give credit where credit is due. Had my wife not touched so many people in her life (in a good way) we would not have had the outpouring of prayers and good wishes and actual help in getting through the last year. We are not religious people in any way, but we did feel the power of prayer.
      This. I had a skull fracture (like in 7 places) and a 2 out of 15 concussion (where 1 is the worst possible) and was out of the hospital in 3 weeks, and recovered to full non vegetable, non slow self in less than 6 months. I am not religious either, but that was truthfully amazing. All the doctors were amazed.
