Honestly, 2016 was the worst year. Maybe not objectively, but it's definitely been one of the worst years of my life.

Me too!
I've had worse experiences in my life than in 2016, but the trajectory has been from bad to worse to only bad again; it's the only year where the major highlights are things going not as badly as I feared.

I quite liked this year actually, if anything it has been the best year of my life so far.

Yeah, but where you live the seasons are backwards, the people avoid the wildlife, and everyone walks around upside-down. It's all topsy-turvy in Oz.

Australia certainly is a strange topsy-turvy weird patch of dirt.

Don't get me wrong, this year could've been the best year of my life.

If not for my own decisions.

Like never saying what was on my mind until it was too late.

"If it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them; but the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

Rubella, also known as the German measles, [...]

That's right, bitches, our measles can kick your measly measles' ass!

Anyway, comparing this year to the start of the century or before doesn't really bring anything to the table. I'm sure that 1036 BC sucked way more ass than 2016. 2016 still sucked ass.

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.
