Somehow, 2015 is almost over. I can’t believe it. With a new year comes a fresh start. We make goals and resolutions. Wipe the slate clean. And, in 2016, I hope we can say goodbye to these things:
Donald Trump: at first, I thought he was funny. I’m not laughing anymore. I’m not overly-excited about any of our choices, but there are better candidates on BOTH sides of the aisle. He’s a misogynistic, racist bully. A “carnival barker.” Let’s put an end to the madness, America.
Facebook hoaxes & sharing of fake articles: Mark Zuckerberg isn’t going to give you money for copying and pasting a status, Jesus will still love you if you don’t “like” a friend’s status, and Facebook isn’t stealing your information. Think before you click “share.”
Click bait articles: “She thought she found the man of her dreams, but then THIS happened.” NO. Also the sharing of pictures of sick babies, sick puppies, and people with holes in their skin. STOP.
The Kardashian/Jenner family: I had to stop watching The Today Show because they mentioned the family every. single. day. Will their popularity never die?
Kim Davis: I have no issue with anyone standing up for their religious beliefs, but that’s not what she was doing. She is now a celebrity. She spent last Tuesday’s gubernatorial inauguration walking in the parade and hanging out with Jon Voight (what). I was embarrassed for my beautiful state on this one.
Flavored bourbon: Bourbon is good on its own. No flavor additive needed!
Captcha on blogs: I do a lot of commenting from my phone. Have you ever tried to type in those little boxes from an iPhone? It’s a nightmare. I give up every time.
Calling plastic surgery “contouring”: NOPE. And this isn’t plastic surgery-shaming. If you have work done, good for you! But be honest about it. Telling us that we can achieve your look with a little contouring is a lie. Looking at you, celebrities.
Not using the Oxford comma: You can have my Oxford comma when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.
#sorrynotsorry: I am NOT sorry that I find that obnoxious.
BAE: I thought this was dead?
What would you like to see disappear in 2016?
