2017, what a year.
A year of sadness and sorrow. A year of shock and hatred.
Trump became President and we got a new Taoiseach here. (By the way, Leo, you’re doing alright)
Paris was the victim to so many terrible shootings and the UK fell victim to bombings. Manchester was a true tragedy.
2017 was the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. The Prisoner of Azkaban was illustrated and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was too. The Fantastic Beasts sequel got a title, The Crimes of Grindelwald. Two documentaries were made and we lost the great John Hurt.
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was released. (AND IT WAS BLOODY BRILLIANT. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES CAN SPEAK WITH ME PERSONALLY)
Instagram messed up their algorithm a whole bunch. Fidget spinners took over social media as well as 1000 degree knives and slime. *shudders* Wavy eyebrows became a thing and “Try not to…” challenges still dominated YouTube.
Same-sex marriages were passed in Australia. (And I came out as bisexual to all of you and some friends at school!) Well done Australia 👏👏
December 2017 has been a time of great movies. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect 3, Jumanji to name a few.
I made resolutions in a blog post (click here to read) and I can proudly say I stuck to ZERO of them.
I didn’t overcome any fears. I didn’t become more organised, I’d say I’m less organised than last year. And I definitely DID NOT become more active on my blog, maybe instagram.
So this year, any idea of any kind of resolution is OUT the bloody window so I’ve got nothing to pressure me this year.
Honestly, I forgot about the ones I made for this year so….
Well, that’s my round up of political and social events of 2017. Let me know any of your views on any of these.
Have any of you got any resolutions for 2018? If you do let me know in the comments. Well, that’s all for now 💜
