since 2018 ends in less than a week, what were your favorite moments of 2018? can be tf2 related or not

in no particular order:
-ToTH 2018
-i63 (especially the froyo vs 7 matches) and the wave of hype for comp tf2 after it
-Ready Up documentary
-went on a trip to NYC where I met then-New York Philharmonic conductor Christoph Eschenbach and watched his orchestra play
edit: now that i think about it 2018 kind of sucked but there was still good, especially in our community

-TotH 2018
- Rewind II and the gamer house and creepy basement and crying watching Ready Up
- Got a promotion and fat raise at my job (retirement and health insurance woo)
- Bought a new car with money I saved from years of work
- Made up for lost time with friends (I went through much of the later years of college and post-college with not many times I saw IRL friends, now I'm trying as hard as I can to reconnect with old HS friends and new friends at work. I'm going to a get-together tonight so it has worked!)

Got my new apartment
Celebrated 2 years with my girl
Left a toxic job that was sucking the life out of me
Got a new job with a great salary increase and crazy benefits
Got myself a life plan with goals so I always have something to look forward to and work for

Looking back at it, It wasn't too bad for me. It's always nice to think about the good stuff once in a while.

I hope everyone has a good 2019 and that it all works out for you, whatever situation you're in.

  • Have been really successful with last year's resolution of cutting back on alcohol and weed, only gotten fucked up a few times this year at parties and have almost never gotten drunk at home
  • Attending RGB2, my first lan, was a crazy headrush. It was my first chance to meet every single one of my tf2 friends (sans JDuff/Gourune at ESL One NY 2016) in person, and really show my dad that my main passion has real meaning to people other than me. I had a great time putting on a show with Shdwpuppet, and got invited onto LAN staff
  • Graduated from high school and convinced my parents that i can function as an adult
  • Became more and more involved in TFTV, eventually leading to me taking over NA coverage from cornpop
  • i63 happened and froyo dropped maps for the first time in a LONG time on LAN, overall was an exciting tournament and a butt-clenching grand final
  • I started my first semester of college and am now actively working towards what i hope 1 day will be an esports career in production :)
  • RGB3 happened and I got to see many of my friends again as well as new ones. I worked my ass off the whole weekend and got to talking with many former GXL staff about making RGB another major TF2 LAN event :D
  • After the unfortunate collapse of Ep3 and my travel insurance policy screwing me have gotten to plan a sick vaycay with tf2 friends that weekend >:)
  • Getting to do more work for CSGO cappingTV over the past few months and hoping to do NA/EU MDL production is gonna be sick

Honestly this year has been such a fucking roller coaster, much of it big thanks to people within the tf2 community. I love u guys :*)

My band recorded an ep and gigged a lot and today we just finished getting shows booked for our first mini tour thing. We've also made the arrangements to record our first full length at the end of next month hopefully. I also started playing dnd with my current band and one of my old band mates a few months ago and that game is fun as fuck even though i thought it'd be stupid. I also got a raise at work. 2018 was pretty good.

Quit my job in investment finance and went to study Spanish in Sevilla. Missed the tf2 season so was pretty nice to play when I came back. Don't miss the job at all.

Quit college (for now). Not a bad thing because I feel much happier not having to deal with the stress. And I work fulltime at a place where they're already cool with me possibly switching degree if I choose to and working halftime or not at all in the future

Going to Copenhagen Games. It was the most stressful LAN I've been to (for reasons unrelated to the event itself) but seeing my friends made it all worth it. Also the final night of LAN when it was just the TF2 people staying inside the venue and yelling random shit, taking group pictures until we got kicked out was the most memorable night I've experienced in the TF2 community (Did anyone ever post the group pictures? I'm on the sniper mains' group photo)

Going from playing on a 6 year old laptop to 144 Hz in October

The "it begins" thread always brings joy to my heart
