Before I forget (or if the wifi here goes down/my ipad breaks again), I'm just gonna create this blog post to wish everyone here a happy new year. I'm in eastern Canada (mid-west by the time the countdown starts, I hope), so I'll probably end up celebrating later than most of you, but for those of you that want to get a sense of when I'm going to cross into 2017, I'm 7 hours back from GMT.

2016 was a rough year for everyone. Many people will be glad it's over and the ties it has to so much negativity will be severed, others will be rejoicing that the year is turning around, giving them a chance to turn over a new leaf, while others will be lying over trash bins in a pile of their own vomit due to excessive drinking. I myself will probably be where I am every year: playing underaged poker with friends I haven't seen in months, doing almost nothing to celebrate the coming of a new year. 2017? Feh. I've got a straight flush (but gay ones are okay too (kill me)). Anyway, happy new years everyone. I hope you're just as excited as I am to ring in a new, fresh year.

Anyway, that's enough of a schpeil on new years. I just want to wish you all a happy one, and maybe know how you all are spending yours.
