I was awake at midnight, but it passed without me realizing. Celebratory gunshots and fireworks started around 11:30, so the noise at midnight didn't alert me that 2016 was gone forever. I still can't believe another year has come and gone, but it has. 2016 wasn't my best year, but it was by far not my worst. I'm hoping 2017 will be a really good year ... but I'll settle for a so/so year if nothing bad happens!
