16 Things 2016 Taught Me | HowToGYST | lessons learned

What a year! With seemingly every celebrity under the sun popping their clogs (thank you for sparing Bruce Willis, at least), surprise presidential elections, and ongoing conflicts around the world, you’d be forgiven for writing 2016 off as a bit of a blip.
