Put delicately, 2016 was a pretty stressful year. We suffered the loss of greats such as Prince, David Bowie, & Alan Rickman; a country was torn apart witnessing one of the ugliest election seasons in recent history, there were multiple acts of terrorism on innocent civilians, and we witnessed live the shooting of a gorilla named Harambe. Honestly, who could use a drink? So taking in the total shitshow that was this year, people have been posting memes expressing how they’ve transformed from the start of 2016 till now, and most of you will be able to identify with all of these sentiments.
For the record, there weren’t some truly bright spots wedged in between all the chaos (CUBS WIN!! CUBS WIN!!), but ultimately let’s just say we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a more promising year in 2017. But then again, I’m fairly sure I said the same thing at the conclusion of 2015.
