Oh I have to say... January - Early June was freaking horrendous. Finishing up engineering was incredibly hard.
Then came Mid June - Sept 30th... Oh meh gawds, that was epic times one after another. It was awesome times, best I've had in years.
Sadly this ground to a halt by me crashing my Chevy Van - went off a hill, flopped on the side, came out almost unscathed. Since then it's been looking for work, which has been depressing... And thus I finally watched MLP.
Still, overall the amount of good stuff that has happened far outweighs the hard times. At the end of the day, this is one of the few years I would honestly replay and say "Ok, let's do this again!"
