I mean overall - not just in your personal life.

I personally had a really good year but if I look around me at what happened this year - it's been a pretty bad year overall. People around me agree with me.

UKIP won the European election in the UK and the same kind of thing happened in France as well. I personally look at that as a bad thing. The Scottish independence referendum happened as well which caused everybody to fall out and argue with each other until a few days after it was over. It was a poisonous topic.

Another thing that was a major subject of the year was the 4chan vs tumblr war which is ongoing in the form of the gamergate incident. While I try not to pick a side, I can't deny that this incident is destroying the internet. The rising ideology of the SJWs is something I'm actually scared of.

It was a good year for anime this year and a good year for my personal life but not so much for the world around me in my opinion.

I would've added a kind of option to the poll but I accidently pressed some buttons that created the thread early.

2015 looks better than 2014 because we get new Gintama in April. Trumps all in my opinion.

for me personally, and many of the people I know, the year has been brutal on the finances and health, and a lot of people felt rushed, but it's ending on a higher note than it started.

It started out really great and optimistic (Jan 10th was one of the best days of my life hands down) but then it kind of went downhill in fits and starts until it plateaued somewhere in the doldrums - things aren't bad but they aren't good either.

I had always thought I'd had my worst year in 1988 (Yes, I imagine many of you were not even born then!), but 2014 was even worse!! My closest friend of 30+ years died; my lesser-half got really sick & had to stop work resulting in the forced sale of my beloved house: I discovered what a pack of insensitive, selfish arseholes my family are; & I had to leave the poorly-paying career that I loved to work longer hours with a bunch of arrogant morons, making money for someone I despise just so we can live normally!!
The only high point of 2014 was that my 21yr old cat managed to survive it, but this only means that 2015 will start off badly because he isnt getting better & I will have to put my dear old boy to sleep very soon. I'm really going to miss him!!
All things considered I am expecting 2015 to be better than 2014, but only because they couldnt get much worse...then again, I always said that about 1988, but 2014 proved me wrong!! Anyhow, I'll be waiting & hoping...but I wont hold my breath!!

On a personal note, 2014 was both miserable at points, and glorious at others. However I think I'd say it was a bad year.... certainly one of the most "Off" years I've ever experienced. Everything felt rushed, extremely rushed, I've been sick for over a few months this year, and we practically didn't celebrate any holiday the whole year... The main problem in my opinion though, is how rushed it felt, most days were very stressful, especially in these last few months.

Here's to the hope that 2015 will be better though!

2014 aged me decades. I don't see how it can get much worse.

I don't know, after all 2015 has only really begun.

To be honest, it was crappy. It was also one of my worst years.
