I think we can all agree that this year was pretty terrible for a multitude of reasons. I’ve seen the phrase “all my heroes are dead and my enemies are in power” circulating and it is truer than ever. My friends went through a lot of terrible stuff. I went through some terrible stuff. As Carrie Fisher would say, this year “hurt all 3 of my feelings.”
But it wasn’t all bad. Tatiana Maslany finally got an Emmy for Orphan Black. That’s all that matters, right? Haha. For reals though, I’m thankful for the good stuff that did happen this year to me. New friends, the trips I went on, the live shows I saw, etc.
I’m going into 2017 with one word in mind: Hope. (Picture General Organa saying this to Rey in Ep VII because I can’t find a gif of it.) I’m hoping that the world doesn’t end and some good stuff happens for me and for all the people I care about. To quote Carrie Fisher again: “Help me obi Juan whoever the fuck you are…. You’re my only ho”

Happy 2017, everyone. May it suck much less for us all.
