January 1st, 2017: I wake up with a smile on my face. One of my first thoughts of 2017 springs into my head, “2017 is going to be my year.” Unfortunately it has not been my year; instead it has been Death’s year. And I don’t think he’s finished yet, so here is a list of people and things I love that Death will probably kill too:

  1. Jay Z
  2. Steve Harvey
  3. My cool neighbor Mark
  4. Santa Claus
  5. The friendly old lady that smiled at me at Denny’s last week
  6. My plant
  7. My ability to grow hair
  8. The girl I like
  9. Carly Rae Jepsen
  10. Democracy
  11. Twinkies (again)
  12. Shirts that fit nice on my body
  13. My parents friends that they curl with
  14. Any hope I have left
  15. Science
