2009- great year for me 7/10
2010- awesome, I moved to Florida and made many friends there 8/10
2011- amazing 9/10
2012- best year of my life, nothing bad happened 10/10
2013- pretty bad year for me, 3rd grade happened, T.V. shows started to suck, my and my cousin hated each others, I got grounded a lot in that year. The only things I miss about that year are iron man 3, my sister was born, and my summer vacation 3/10
2014- okay, sucks at the start but got better later on 5/10
2015- good year 6/10
2016- worst year ever! My dad tortured me, my sister ruined me life, I was depressed, my summer was ruined by my dad, every once a month I would have one of the worst days of my life, a lot of my friends had a terrible time in that year, nothing good happened in the news, I got bandages from my dad on Christmas, I got a phone that didn't work for most of the year. The only thing I miss about that year were me going to middle school, spending time with my friends, and I ...more

This year was a really good one for me. I was 9 years old at the time. Back then, YouTube seemed to be just right, not too old and not too modern. I also remember some songs like Gangnam Style that were extremely popular towards the end of the year. Overall, it was one of the best years of my life, I'd give it a 9/10.

Ahhh yes, 2012! This was my favorite year right next to 2011. A great school year for me, I spent a lot of time with my family, and this was also a good year for music! Sure my sister was in hospital with a rare disease in this year, but she survived! I've got to thank 2012 for everything it has done for me and it will remain in the 3rd millennium history books forever! - TheMasterof2011

This is how I see it
2007-2012 too young to remember
2013: decent not bad (6/10)
2014: too boring (2/10)
2015: better than last two years (7/10)
2016: best year of my life (9/10)
2017: decent (6/10)
2018: so far THE WORST YEAR EVER! (-10/10)

5 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.

My opinions on the 2010's
2010: Great 7/10
2011: Awesome 8/10
2012: Amazing 9/10
2013: Pretty bad not as much as 2014 but it's pretty bad 4/10
2014: Awful, too many bad things were happening to me like my grandmother died, Adventure time was no longer good, school sucked, etc. I only liked the Summer and Christmas vacation. 2/10
2015: Good, things got better 6/10
2016: Sucks, too much cringe 3/10
2017: Best year of my life 10/10
2018: Good 6/10
2019: Still good 6/10

I was 16, at highschool, almost adult but still I could have been careless, not thinking bout nothing, only crushes, music, parties, meetings with friends, studying for tests night before'em. I miss this, my life was very happy, but I think the peak of my happiness came in 2017, now we have 2019, I'm 18 and I have to start thinking about making money, working, University, paying bills and all the stuff that absorbes adult people. I'm just sad that times went by so fast... I always thought that adulthood=death! I just began adult a few months ago, I hope there are a lot of amazing moments that will happen to me still, even better than these in 2017

My thought of the 2010s
2010: Pretty bad 3/10

Best Year ever
WWE ruthless aggression is born
Brock Lesnar And John Cena Debuts
2002 world cup
Music was different then that new s***
Justin Bieber weren't famous
It was all different
Nintendo Gamecube was released
The Rock VS Hollywood Hulk Hogan Wrestlemania X8
Beginning of the competition between the Gamecube vs OG Xbox and vs PS2
Best Game for Gamecube in 2002: Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Memories
And plus Music was the best on that year
Spidermab was released on that year and so did Harry potter and the Chamber of secrets Star was 2 Attack of the clones and 8 mile was released on that year
THIS YEARS WAS A MIND BLOWING YEAR FOR ME for the win laugh out loud

It makes me feel good to see 2002 near the top, not just because it was the year I was born in, but the fact that it seemed like a great year in general. Even though most people were still recovering from 9/11, there were a lot of neat stuff that happened that year. Great movies, great T.V. shows, great video games, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network were at their peak in quality, you name it!

I agree with the person who said 2002 music was better. We got Get Busy! No wonder Anne Marie wrote a song about this year!

The USA was recovering from 9/11 then. - JoeBoi

Favorite year overall. Everything was fun and happy and the music was amazing. The memories I made were amazing and unforgettable. And no matter how sad I was I always knew how to be happy again and it made me who I am today. If I could turn back time to any year it'll definitely be 2013. - Yoshiandaglover

I love it I cry whenever I realize how long ago it was it was a great year the music was great and all the memories

Whoops! I meant I agreed!

Celtic won the European Cup! - SpinelliFan

Celtic won the European Cup

Celtic won the European Cup. First British team to do so. We also won the all five competitions and completed the Quintuple.Over the course of the season, Celtic scored a world record 196 goals in the major competitions they took part in.

Greatest music. Love hippies. Time when people were vastly more connected and having a buffoon like dumpy in the White House was unthinkable

Definitely the best year...
I was only 1, but so much good music was released this year (and one of the last years good music was made). Bands like Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Stained... you get the point, released amazing albums. After 2003, music slowly began to decline

Was the year for me
Sequel comes to the Two Towers
MIB 2 seems to last four hours
Brings us the best X-men yet
Calling All Angels on cassette
OutKast makes us get up and dance
And X-men : Evolution aires in France...

Lord of he Rings: Return of the King was released. - jezza0

2012- a little underrated year 9/10
2013- mediocre, not as awful as 2014 but the only bad thing was 3nd grade 5/10
2014- awful because too many bad things were happening like my grandmother died, my mom was mean to me, so many terrible trends, adventure time was no longer good, I didn't get to see Jessica anymore, and I had too many bad school days. The only things that I miss in 2014 are my vacations and watching watch mojo videos 2/10

2016- bad 4/10
2017- best year ever! Way too underrated year

19 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.

Ugh 2018 was no good for me... Although my school year was great in this year, there was lots of rubbish stuff. Music was rubbish (especially mumble rap), my grandmother AND one of my uncles died, I was really unlucky with a lot of things in this year, and of it was just FORTNITE FORTNITE (it was very overrated in 2018 to be honest). So, WORST YEAR EVER! - TheMasterof2011

To be honest: I don't see what's the hate about 2015, because this was such a green year for me & my Instagram! This was when I was first famous during spring break in my 9th grade year! During the summer I got my very first summer job & also my time going to the beach in Texas. During the fall which is October, a brawl occurred at my school, I went to fair, & I got a new bed. It's 2017 & it's feels like this year is already better than 2016. - DPS501

The best of my brony days and I was only 11. - JayJayPlane

Well this year wasn't that bad but this year would be better than 2011 my friend died that year he past away early 2015. This year I went to Prom I graduated Elementary School 8th Grade and better things and it would always be better than 2017 and 2011! Overall 2015 was the best year for me personally By the way this year was when Batman Arkham Knight came out Jurassic World too by the way! - Lordvader3500

In my opinion, I understand why people hated this year because of bad things that happened in the world. Like mass shootings, an attack on Paris France, and celebrities like Mayva Collins passing away. Mayva Collins was my favorite teacher that I actually watched her movie ever since she passed away. Man ever since 2015 ended, all I see is negative instead of good comments about this, because I had a great 2015. So if you don't like this year don't say nothing!

JoeBoi really likes to kill the fun.

How was this good? 9/11 happened this year. - JoeBoi

That is really sad but you have to realize that there were wars going on that killed a lot more around that time. Like Iraq war which bought instability - Slither

There are some good things... and there was some bad things. Good things: XBOX was released, Windows XP was released, GameCube was released, good movies and more stuff. Bad things: 9/11 terrorist attacks, my dad getting arrested... etc...

30 1996

Let me see, why 1996 is just AWESOME:

- I was born
- Germany winning the European Championship
- A fantastic year for the music, many rock/metal bands I like were founded in 1996: Skillet, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, to name a few...
- The Internet growing
- Nintendo 64

Just to name a few things.

This wasn't the best year for cinema but it was very good. Quentin Tarintino had two movie out. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, Wes Craven brought us Scream, Desperado was considered the most violent movie on earth, Radiohead was rocking and rolling. George Clooney had not collided with the devil to ruin batman in 1997, the internet was made around 1996, Aids was getting treatments, Canada had a complete mix of the 70's 80's and 90's, and the twisted version of the little red ridding hood AKA Freeway, came out. There were so many awesome things that happened this year. The economy was doing great too. I think I was born in the wrong generation, this year was amazing!

My cousin Nathaniel was born - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Personally, I wish I could've been born this year...

1995 was a great year. There were many great games like: Mortal Kombat 3, Earthworm Jim 2, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Street Fighter Alpha, e.t.c.
But some bad things happened too. For example, Eazy-E died. - AlexImmortal420

1984 was with no doubt about the best year for movies we got ghostbusters terminator super girl the never ending story and the list keeps going on we also got amazing song and a good few games that are still fun to play with. Michael Jackson was in his prime and so much more if this isn't the best year ever I don't know what is ( we also got the gremlins and Indianna jones)

Best music released this year, born in the usa,thriller,1984(albums) among with many other hit singles. Great movies too plus Ronald Regan was elected for a second term

1984 Detroit tigers won the world series reagan was elected among everything else. That meant something in the world. Best year on earth

47 1AD

Scholars say that He was actually born around 4 because and died around 29 AD. Not sure about the because and AD in this case but seems like He would have died in 1BC not AD. I don't know, I'm not exactly a Christian or a scholar for that matter. I have to say that He was the single most important and influential person whom ever lived. I mean the way we count years stopped going backwards and started going forward. If that's not a sermon I don't know what is. Again I'm not necessarily a Christian. I feel that a person's beliefs are an intimate and personal decision. Notice I didn't say religion. I think religion is just a formality. Anyway, that being said, He's touched everyone's life in many different ways since his birth, be it the holidays we celebrate or don't celebrate, based on your PERSONAL decision. Or countless wars we've fought or the way you count your age. The list goes on and on. Again not really a Christian. I know this list is supposed to be about 1year but not really ...more
