      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 sat at home today with a book and many cups of coffee.
      Might not sound like much, but I have not had a rest day the past two weeks with work and studying for work related things.

      I enjoyed the hell out of today.

      I'm successful in a variety of ways.

      I'd tell you all about it, but I don't want to be labeled as a narcissistic, attention whore.

      However, I will tell you that I can gleek on command without a citrus palate stimulus.



      This and this alone is a...great success !!!

      I passed my motorcycle exam in Germany on the first try, with the BIG bike!

      Actually, this is more of a success for my instructor than for me. He broke me like a horse.

      92 on an electromag test where the class average was 61. A test I had no real time to study for too, extra awesome.

      Putting aside our differences, congrats. Being able to sell your art and get shows is a goal I'd someday like to achieve.

      Went to Nuit Blanche last night, drank half a bottle of Jack to keep the cold away. Met some awesome people and discovered the perfect hangout (on the roof of a crepe shop!).

      Now today I have a ton of reading to do, but I don't give a fawk cuz I'm finally liking the program I'm in!

      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.
