17 Jokes to Kick Off 2017

Stupid lil somethings to help start out the hopefully not-stupid New Year.

17 Jokes to Kick Off 2017

This year I made some very typical New Year’s resolutions to y’know “eat better” and “workout more” even though my habits from 2016 regarding eating and fitness were both considerably very healthy. No, I didn’t start off the new year with a bang, I actually slept most of New Year’s Day. So, while maybe many individuals are out there sharing or preaching their new and improved lifestyles, I wish to share with you some incredibly stupid jokes. Why? Because why the hell not. Blame it on my childish humor and love for simplicity, but I’m a huge fan of ridiculously dumb word play. My gift to the travelers of the internet is the shared gift of stupidity. Cherish this gift, maybe re-gift it if y’all know what’s good. So now… without further ado… I give to you… some elementary school (maybe middle school) level jokes.

(Brief disclaimer! Obviously, my ass didn’t come up with these jokes, so no credit to me in regards to their creation or anything. However, given the level of immaturity and utter dumbness of them all, I do not remember where or how I was introduced to them. To be honest, I have a lil list goin' of all these jokes in my notes on my phone.)

....So now! (Again) I give to you 17 of my favorite jokes for you to start with for your 2017!

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
