Personally, I'm trying not to be paranoid of the people around me, let alone the big pharma and government jockeys who are responsible for everything I can't control. It's fun to think about all that could happen this year, but also quite terrifying, so I have to stop questioning everything and limit myself, from time to time.
How am I supposed to cut out caffeine when I'm worried about falling asleep and missing some important political decision? "Don't worry about what you can't control," indeed, but I'd like to know before we're attacked with nuclear warheads.
Thanks for the reassurance, Mr. President.
On the positive side, there are fewer beloved celebrities to be mourned, this year. 2016 took its tool very effectively. But it'll be sad if there's no one left to mourn. How will society adapt to the idea that something horrible could happen at any moment? Humans can adapt to anything, but I figure it'll be a degree more tense.
Who knows? Maybe my paranoia is completely misdirected. Maybe Al Gore'll make a comeback, and then good old Mother Nature will whack us out before our atomic trigger fingers get too itchy. At least I wouldn't have to worry about it anymore.
