This was the best year in the 21st century. I wasnt so old facing college issues. But I wasnt too young either to not know about exciting things in life like science, girls, etc... I was a teen and in high school. It was partying everywhere. And also the time when I began to know about the truth behind everything, physics, biology, nature, why we exist, etc. I read hawkings brief history of time for the first time. My close friends were all total nerdy and geeks and I was a high school genius and ubergeek.
Also this marks the beginning of time when the new technology called smart phones and whatsapp are getting very popular and my jump to 3g internet from 2g. Means access to a much faster bandwidth for all people. Apple released ipad. Ebooks getting very popular, amazon will release kindle fire 1 year after 2010.
So this marks the time when all developing countries get widely connected to the rest of the world through internet and facebook.. I also remember the old orkut. The ...more

2010 was a great year because I had just enter middle school and my crush finally looked at me. Also my parents let me start taking birth control so I lost some weight. But political everything was so fresh and everyone seemed happy

2010 Music was the best and it was just a chill year with the World Cup in the summer...

2 2011

My opinion, I leant this one to be number one, manly because it had really great songs that year. There's a great remix for them. The old days were good.

It was the best I
Year I wish I had a time machine to go back that year

2011 was a pretty good year actually

Overall one of the best of the 2010s, I thought school was pretty fun here, and I got some amazing lego city sets

3 2006

2006 is one of the best years ever. my husband bought all of us first ticket to Paris,France and slept at a 5-Star Hotel is Paris. and my he also bought me 2 louis vuitton bag and one hermes wallet. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH 2006 !

I feel like 2006 is a starting year for the new modern, like flat screens TV became more popular and the 90's vibes just ended and technology just stared to get more advanced, and also everything was so cinematic

This was awesomne! I remember living in an awesomne house, and had a great childhood this year

2006-2012 has a summer vibe that is just so different, it feels like 80’s pop mixed with modern technology,

4 2007

Here's my timeline/opinion:

1999: Born
2000 - 2003: Awesome years! Best games, best movies, best music, and best T.V. shows of the early 00s
2004 - 2007: Great years, but not as good as the earlier years, but still had a great childhood.
2008 - 2012: These years were okay, Things were starting to change a lot
2013 - 2014: Bad. Things were starting to suck!
2015 - 2016: Awful! Things were getting worse!
2017 - Present: $#! tty music, Movies, T.V. shows, etc.

The best year of my life would be 2007! I wish it was 2007 again. Oh and by the way, Tomorrow is New Year's Eve, Happy New Year! 2018 was a pretty rough year all right

2007 was amazing! I got my first little sister here, and we moved to aonther house, and it was eciting, my birthday was awesomne too from what I remember, and my favourite Lithuania trip was here.

2007 is my favorite year

5 2012

Overall good year, I got my first video game ever (Mario Party 9) and my first video game console eer (Nintendo Wii), so of course it would be pretty good.

I actually liked (2006-2012), except for 2009! it started to suck in 2013 though.

I disagree with you with 2009 and years 2012 and beyond. 2012 was the worst year ever and Years 2016 and beyond were good years for me. 2015 was an awesome year and 2020 is the best year ever because the leap day is on a Saturday. 2009 was an awesome year for me because of my personal life and my Birthday was on a Saturday in 2009. I actually loved 2009.
I have one question, Why do people hate every year where my Birthday is on a Saturday?

I actually like (2006-2012), except 2009. It started to suck in 2013 though.

It's my 2nd worst year (The Worst is 2014 & 2013)

6 2003

Preschool and early childhood!

I was born in this year

I was born in this year.

Born in this year

7 2008

2008, 2007, and 2006 all takes the cake as some of the best years of my life (2017 and 2009 are high up there too), in 2008 in particular I we did some exciting things, we had to change the floor in the kitchen and I remember we had to walk on paper in the kitchen, and we also had the dining table in the living room, and I had some awesomne imaginations here, this might not sound cool, but trust me, if you were me these times, you would want to be there forever.

I loved this year this year I saw the dark knight, breaking bad premered. and I got to sink deep into nosalgia with adult swim old school night if you don't know in 2008 every friday adult swim would showcase programs that was on adult swim in 2001 the whole night

Kindergarten was a bop. I lived in a coastal town. It was a bLAST.

This was the greatest year ever. The only reason was seeing the Patriots embarrased

8 2009

My little brother was born this year, but that's it, the winter was super cold this year

I hate this year because it was the year Billy Mays died. Rest in piece Billy.

9 2004

I was born this year! Of course this should be high up then!

Bad because boeing 757 ended production this year

This year should be at number 1! top 3 at least

Best year just trust me

10 2015

I was born in 1999.
1999-2006:?
2007-2010: Sometimes good, sometimes bad
2011: Bad
2012: Ordinary
2013: Mostly bad
2014:
January-August: Mostly bad
September-December: Relatively good
2015: Very good
2016: Very good
2017:
The second half of February-November: Bad.
January-the first half of February and December: Good
2018: In the balance

The worst so far, the nourishment drink period I had December 2015 was HORRENDOUS! I couldn't eat any food whatsoever except those nourishment drinks because of my chrons disease! And it was also the year I played Space Quest V (one of the worst games ever), my Norway trip was awesomne, but not even that saves this year.

KC Royals won the world series this year! Had a crappy year of middle school though.

BEst year ever to me:
- good grade
- good summer
- sweet memories
- nostalgic
- MLG memes at peak
- see you again

The Contenders

11 2019

It was at least a decent way to end a memorable decade. 2019 was just a good year, and I couldn’t find a better way to end the decade with this year. This year is terrible, so far, the pandemic, too many people dying, fear, hate, protest, etc.

This is the final year of the 2010s. I do have much hope for 2019 as ISIS has already been destroyed. But there are still too many mishaps, such as California flooding, Brexit uncertainty, and most recent Christchurch mosque shooting.

So far a decent year we had in a while, after 2016 it started going downhill and 2019 made a comeback!

Clown world honk honk

12 2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

Way better than the previous three years! One of the best, my second little sister was born, we moved to a better house, and I got a Nintendo Switch.

Best year of my life, 2016 was boring and terrible, in 2017, I felt so happy.

I went to NYC, Seaside Heights, Ocean City NJ, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and a wedding!

This needs to be higher

13 2002

This year was absolutely sublime as we recovered from 9/11, music was wonderful, and TV shows were fabulous.

14 2005

I was born this year.

YouTube was invented this year my only reason :]

15 2013

Extremly overhated, we had a decent trip to Lithuania, I got a 3DS and... yeah, on the good side.

I had a fun year of fifth grade. I wish I could go back.

2013 is te most terrible year in the 21st century

Transformers prime beast hunters was created. It was a super duper duper duper duper duper duper duper awesome T.V. show

16 2014

Cage the elephant came out with come a little closer

Overall, not bad, but not good either, I was sick during my Lithuania trip this year (thankfully I got Mario Party Island Tour so it still made my trip decent-good)

17 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

Probably one of the only years in my life that wasn't so full of stress and drama

The year I discovered furries.

Horrible, but not as bad as 2015, still, this year was super stressful and annoying, my trip to Norway AND Lithuania was good though

18 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

BEST: 2018! YOU WERE BEAUTIFUL! SUMMER CAmP ISLAND, WASHINGTON'S STANLEY CUP, YEAH!
2nd best: 2016! Deal with it! I can like what I want. No problems I had to deal with!
3rd best: 2013! Good games like NHL 14 was made!
4th best: 2014! Last good year for music like Death From Above 1979, Madeon, Close Your Eyes, Linkin Park, Bruno Mars, and some more!
5th best: 2012: Very nice year
5th worst: 2015: No good things happened this year, but no bad either.
4th worst: 2010: Same as 2015
3rd worst 2011: the Japan tsunami Norway attacks and Tohoku earthquakes happened this year
2nd worst: 2017: Annoying year! OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes existed, Tom Petty died, and a really horrifying virus came that year!
WORST: 2019: SCREW YOU 2019!

A lot of music in 2018 sucks! Even pop music is starting to suck! I stopped buying new music from iTunes now! Rap is $#! T nowadays and it’s all garbage! I am now going to buy old classic music from iTunes

I thought this would be a great year after a crappy 2017, but this year was worse, until the end of the year.

Of course the more recent years are at the bottom lol

19 2020

Ranking the 2010s from best to worst.

2013 & 2014 are both tied and 2014 is placed higher since 2014 is the bigger number.

Terrible year, the coronavirus pandemic killed lots of people and destroyed the economy.

2020 Sucks Big time I miss the 2010s and 2000s

Well we hope but so far naw

20 2001

Is this last because of 9/11?
