Dear 2016, you suck!

2016 needs to leave NOW

2016 has been a rough time for many people. Life has kicked us all in the figurative nuts. We’ve lost some amazing people and inspirations. I used to have a celebrity death pool when in college with friends where we would select 3 people that we thought would die the following year. As I grew up and started to watch some of my inspirations pass, it no longer became fun. In a year where so many have claimed hope and change, 2016 seems to have sucked the life out of the world.

I was talking to my bud Kris Mason and we were talking about the people that had died throughout 2016 and I am sure you can’t compare this to any other year. This has been the most painful year in celebrity deaths!

Let’s look back at the piece of dog poo year that was 2016.
