2016. What a year. A whirlwind of emotions. A parade of notable deaths. I, admit, I was among the many who felt a tinge of empathy when a celebrity I barely knew died. Despite all the horrible things that happened in 2016 like the growing trend of terrorism all across Europe and the mass shootings in the United States, I had a great year.

First, there was the 2016 Rio Olympics. I remember tuning into as many women's volleyball, women's beach volleyball, and women's diving matches as I could. What can I say, I'm passionate about the competitive sports.

And I can't go on talking about 2016 without mentioning Donald Trump. I'm glad he became president because that means that literally anything is possible. Shortly after the election, we saw tons of protests all over the country including an increase of public support for the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. I, for one, was completely behind their cause. I even made my way up to Standing Rock and doused the protesters with water cannons to wash them off since they didn't have showers there. I was just doing my little bit to help.
