Mid-January - June 7th:
A pleasant and relaxing few months in which I watched a lot of movies, read a lot of comics, played a lot of video games and watched a lot of great TV shows.

June 7th - July 14th:
The single worst period of my life to date. Every single day was worst than the last and just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did. Truly a living nightmare peppered with occassional and fleeting moments of joy.

July 14th onward:
Coming out of the worst period of my life and starting to rebuild.
