An Open Letter to 2016
2016. Wow. What a shit show, but you know what? I’m still standing motherfucker.
I survived it all – both minor and major setbacks. I survived a lengthy worker strike, rejections from various publications, car troubles, money troubles, and a devastating personal loss – but I’m still standing motherfucker.
I’ve watched what you did to other people too. I’ve seen you fuck with them without mercy. I saw them get knocked the fuck down but they got the fuck back up. We cannot and will not be broken. Ever.
So fuck you 2016. You gave it your best shot to knock me out but you failed. You came pretty close a couple of times, but in the end, I’m still standing motherfucker. So fuck you again 2016. Fuck you and good riddance. Go suck a bag of dicks.
So now I’m waiting on you 2017. I’ll be waiting to see what you got. Are you going to try to outdo 2016? Are you going to try and see if you can knock me the fuck out? Do you even have the balls enough to try?
Bring it 2017, because no matter what you dish out to me, I’ll still be standing motherfucker.
