1st of January 2018 is an arbitrary date that doesn’t hold any astronomical significance and doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things (no we’re not Neil Degrasse Tyson but how else can we sound cool?). Nevertheless, we find ourselves looking back, assessing and rating how our year went. So here’s to all the things we thought we would but didn’t accomplish this year, to that job you didn’t get, here’s to your apartment that is both too small and too big for you alone, here’s to doing things at your own pace, here’s to all the weddings you successfully ditched may you always ditch more, may you always have a home, may you find one, may you always take your time and find some to listen to our playlists. Here’s our favorites from 2017.
