I did a lot of stupid things when I was a teenager. I wore glitter to school. I thought bell bottom jeans really would make a comeback. I posted several Facebook statuses a day to my 3+ friends. And I also firmly believed that an orange, fake tanned skin was miles better than my naturally fair self.
Mistakes, all of them. I look back on my yearbook photos and Facebook rewinds and cringe.
I didn’t realize it until just days ago, but it turns out that I was committing a far greater sin than drugstore bronzer lotion.
I was taking care of my skin. Actually, I still am.
Absolutely nothing on earth could've prepared me for the onslaught of nonsense that was 2017. It was like a non-stop Far Side cartoon come to life, where Vinny from "Jersey Shore" schools us on climate change and Dennis Rodman is a harbinger of peace.
What will 2018 bring? Who can say. I'm half-convinced Grumpy Cat will be my state's senator, but time will tell.
Here, however, are 8 things I'm almost 100% sure will go down. Let the fireworks begin.
