Obligatory End of the Year List
It's that time of the year when everyone on social media is making lists...lists of hit songs, hit movies, popular news stories, but no one is making a list of the top lists.
My favorite lists are advice lists like "The Top 10 Signs That Your Significant Other is Bad for you" or "5 Reasons Why You Should Leave Your Toxic Marriage"...terrible relationships tend to make great lists!
There are also itemized accounts of events that transpired during the year, like celebrity deaths lists. Famous people will go through a roller coaster of popularity while they are alive. When they die, though, they are all unsung geniuses in their field. People tend to curse the entire year that took the life of their hero. (Suck it, 2016 for taking all of our rock stars and actors) Remember that one year when no one that was famous died? What a good year that was!
Don't forget the New Year's lists...People will make a record of what they resolve to change at beginning of January. I would think it would be hard to come up with brand new resolutions every year. I just copy and paste mine from the previous year, It's a time saver and makes me feel efficient.
Whatever list you compose this year, be sure to put yourself number 1 on it! ( Unless it's the naughty list, then put yourself accordingly.)
Happy New Year,
