Happy 2017

I’m a child of the 80s and that means I listened to ABBA. (My older cousin would record her albums for me on cassette and I was hooked. C’mon–that’s still some really catchy shit. Go listen.)

Anyhoozles, there’s a song on their 1980 album Super Trouper called ‘Happy New Year’ and even after all this time, I can still remember the lyrics to the chorus.

Happy new year, happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbor is a friend.
Happy new year, happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die, you and I
A bit melancholy, yes, but hopeful overall. Well, needless to say, they song is really resonating with me this year. I do have hope, and the ‘verse willing, 2017 will be what we all need it to be. And because I didn’t want to make this post so dour (even though 2016 was a dumpster fire of biblical proportions), I created my own “Me in 2016” meme. So fuck you, 2016. We’re going to make 2017 so awesome that nobody remembers you anymore. HAPPY 2017!!!
