      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 !!!

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

      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!

      Despite a rocky start early in life (about 15 y.o.) and addiction to cocaine, (stopped in 1989 at my 3rd NA meeting, clean since then.) and an affair, I've managed to maintain my marriage, and help my wife to raise 4 great kids. I'd love to chang a few things, but overall, I have to say I've got it pretty good.

      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.

      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 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?

      Race was canceled so I spent Sunday consuming only pizza and beer. Literally. Hung some sheet rock, cleaned the gutters, logged a bunch of miles in the Miatas. And built a cat scratching post but Idunno if that's 'success' or not. They like it

      I feel like these don't count. Unless you play for those teams. If that's the case,
