Do you think 2017 will be a better year for you than 2016 was?

I'll be studying abroad, then our wedding/vow renewal, and then moving to live with my husband. So I expect so, even though 2016 was a great year personally.

For sure! The big oaf we call a president is out and Trump is in. So far looking good

Looks like we are all (mostly anyways) optimistic about our 2017!

June of 2017 I will be 15 and a half (January is my birthday) and I get to start driving with my parents. I have never been so hyped about anything in my entire. I am a massive car guy and it sucks not being able to drive, so this will be a life changing experience for me.

2016 was a kick in the nuts in many ways for me. My hope is to make 2017 what I hoped 2016 would be.

2016 was a dumpster fire. Politically, I think 2017 will be worse with the inauguration of Trump, but in my personal life, I'm hoping it will be better.

2016 was the worst year of my life, literally anything would be better than this trainwreck

This was an excellent year but next should be even better.

I'm hopeful. Lower taxes would be a good start.

I'm graduating college, I will (hopefully) get my first job as an English teacher, and I have unsolidified wedding plans (it might get pushed to 2018).

When we do get married, I will also be moving out of my parent's house for the first time.

So yeah. 2018 will be a year of change. Good change.

I've had a great year with a great girlfriend. But idk, she's been going through philosophical changes and shit that may eventually separate us. So I don't have extremely high hopes for 2017 in that respect. 😟😟

Yes, I will turn 59.5 years old on August 27th, 2017, and lose the 10% penalty tax on my IRA withdrawals. That's costing me $175 a month.

I think so. 2016 doesn't rank as one of my best years. I'm optimistic about 2017.

12/26/16 7:40 pm

Not to say this year wasn't really amazing, but the great opportunities I've gotten in 2016 will only continue and get bigger in 2017. I can't wait for it.

I can confidently say 2016 has been the worst year of my life so far. So there's only one thing 2017 can be and that is better than this year.

It's gotta be for celebrities - they were dropping like flies in 2016.

The guy who wrote Game of Thrones wrote 2016. Hope he doesn't write a sequel for 2017.

No. Even-numbered years have historically gone better for me than odd-numbered years for some odd reason.

I'm graduating from High School and am looking forward to not paying anything for a college education, so yes, I think 2017>2016!

Oh for college. I don't know yet, but I will have my choice from full tuition and full ride offers. Not a big deal, I just do my best! 😜

This is a tough one, 2016 was a great year for me personally - I graduated with my masters degree and got married to an amazing man. I think 2017 will be a great year for my career and hopefully that moves us closer to some of our financial goals but I don't think it'll top 2016

Yes. I'll be moving out, closer to finishing school, and my SO and I have two trips lined up :)

Maybe by the end of 2017 people will realize how bad trump is as president and we can work on the impeachment process.

Harming the country by improving it? I'm confused on how you think hats harm?

I don't think it'll take until 2018 for someone to file suit for impeachment.

BenBismont A state of some confusion
12/27/16 7:41 am

I don't think it's fair to claim any president or leader to be terrible enough for impeachment before they've even entered office. You'll only grow stubborn in your hate of the person, possibly to the point of denying anything good he does. It's incredibly childish. At least wait for a month before you start calling for his head, because by then you may have actual reasons to bitch about how he does his job.
