10 Tweets That Sum Up Why 2016 Sucked

No, it's not your imagination. 2016 was shitty.

Hard to believe it, but 2016 is finally coming to a close..and I couldn't be happier. This year was a rough one not just for me personally, but for a large majority of the human population. 2016 marks the year when the British shocked the world by voting to leave the European Union. On July 7, five police officers were shot dead in Dallas and a week later the Islamic State took credit for a terrorist attack on France’s Bastille Day that resulted in numerous deaths in Nice. Before this even had a chance to leave our news channels, there was an attempted coup d’état in Turkey. It seemed that every time we turned on the TV or checked the news, we were hit with more violence and deaths than ever before. Not to mention the political uproar that has arisen from our most recent presidential election, which has resulted in even more division and anger among our nation. While it may not beat the year of the Black Death in 1348 or 1943 at the height of the Holocaust, 2016 definitely makes it high on the list as a bad year in history.

These 10 tweets perfectly sum up just how shitty 2016 has been.

All I can say is goodbye 2016; you will not be missed.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
