Ah. At last, it has has finally come.
The last day of 2016!
Happy Saturday, everyone. I hope you’re spending the last day of the year with your friends and family. If not, I hope you’re watching Netflix and eating junk food alllll day. Either way, I wish you all the best year ever.
I love a New Year. I love starting the year from scratch, having new firsts, and just trying to have the best year possible. And yeah. I’m one of those people who says, “this is the last time I’ll see you in 2016!” or “this is the last piece of pizza I’ll eat in 2016!” When you meet me I don’t seem like a sappy or nostalgic person at all, but I just like mentioning those things cause it’s fun and it gets ya thinking 🙂
This year was interesting. Veeeeeery interesting. I started 2016 in my favorite place: New York City. It was so much fun and whenever I am there, I always have the best time. This year, I graduated middle school and started high school. I made a ton of new friends and discovered new things about me! (I know, I know. So corny!)
This year I also discovered music I didn’t know would change my view on life, books that made me think, and television and movies I had no idea I needed to watch! Buuuuut, I’ll get to that in a second.
I try to only mention positive things here on my blog, but don’t think I’m gonna skip the bad parts of 2016. Personally, I had a pretty good year. If the world were talking, it’d probably say that it was one of the worst years in a long time! We lost so many great artists and people, but their legacy will live on. It was also the last year with one of the best presidents EVER: Barack Obama. Gosh, I’m gonna miss him and Michelle. Speaking of presidents, The US now has a new president who I hope does not destroy the world. (Sorry, Trump supporters.)
The world became a very scary place this year and I never thought it would be like this. I’m just hoping things get better in 2017!
Okay guys. Enough with all the sadness. Let’s get to my yearly favorites!!
TV: Freaks and Geeks, The Office, Gilmore Girls (Original and A Year in the Life), Stranger Things, Haters Back Off, The Fosters, New Girl, SNL, How I Met Your Mother (currently watching that! SO.GOOD.) And yeah. I finished/watched all of these shows this year. I know! That’s a lotta tv. But TV and comedy shows get me through a lot and I don’t regret one single episode 🙂
Books: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Me Before You, Finding Audrey, To Kill a Mockingbird (I read more, as these are just my favorites, but I hope to read WAY more books in 2017, and watch less TV!)
Movies: Finding Dory, Me Before You, Ghostbusters, Arrival, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. These were all movies that came out this year, but I finally watched all of the Molly Ringwald movies and they are the BEST!!!
I would list my favorites for music, but I made playlist for that! Well, sorta. I made a verrrrrry short playlist of my favorite pop songs of the year. It’s short because there were very few good pop songs. Spotify made a most-listened to playlist for me, too!
So that was just a short run down of my 2016 favorites – pop culture wise. I’d do more, but I’m gonna go enjoy the last day of 2016.
Happy New Years! I wish you ALL the best in 2017 and that you have an amazing year.
See ya! XOXO, 2016 Josie
Ps: what’s your New Years resolution? Mine is to write in my journal everyday, and write on here more!
Ok that was a lame way to end my last post of 2016… I need a good word to end it on… hmm…. what’s a fun word to say?
Yes! Have a razzle-ey dazzle-ey 2017! 🙂
