Man, I can’t believe we’re counting down the final days of 2016. And let’s be honest — it’s a good and bad thing. It was a surreal year and I am not sorry to leave behind 2016. At the same time, I’m not super thrilled to usher in 2017 for obvious reasons, but I also refuse to crawl into a hole and hide. Or not live a happy life. After all, that is the American way.
