wrapping up 2016- good? bad? worst year???

the year is coming to a close & wow, it was a doozy. everyone is calling 2016 "the worst year" & i'll admit, a lot of bad things did happen- just to name a few:
  • the death of george michael
  • the mess that was the presidential election
  • the death of christina grimmie
  • the orlando shooting
  • the death of alan rickman
  • zika
  • the death of carrie fisher
there were really a lot of deaths recently, & not only of celebrities but my grandfather also. however, we can't just think about the bad, we have to focus on the positives: 
  • the breakthrough in research for ASL
  • finding dory
  • NASA got into jupiter's orbit
  • the hilariousness that is deadpool
  • harriet tubman might/is supposed to replace andrew jackson on the $20 bill
  • zootopia
  • the manatee population is no long endangered
ofc my lists are short since i can't possibly know every good & bad thing that happened in the world but who's to say whether the bad outweighed the good or vice versa? all i know is that we have gotten through a tough year & we're headed into a new one. let's try to stay optimistic, even w all of the bad that has happened. i can't wait to see all of the good that 2017 has in store.
