Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

Code Monkey get up get coffee

Code Monkey go to job

have boring meeting with boring manager Rob

Rob say Code Monkey very diligent

Code Monkey think maybe manager oughta write goddamn login page himself

Code Monkey not say it out loud

Code Monkey not crazy just proud

– Jonathan Coulton, Code Monkey
