27 Memes That Perfectly Explain How You Felt At The Beginning Of 2016 Vs. End Of 2016

At this point, I have all but run out of ways to refer to the commonly-held sentiment that the year of our lord 2016 was nothing if not a steaming pile of fecal matter. I am sorry to be crude, but the year got off to a bad start (Oregon militia in the wildlife building, anyone?) and seemed to be devoutly intent on just getting worse, what with the 2016 US Presidential election, the insurrection of White Supremacist Barbie Tomi Lahren, and the death of literally all of your favorite celebrities. It is a year that, for better or for worse (probably worse, to be quite honest) changed all of us to the core. And, for what it’s worth, there is a meme that you’ve probably seen around the internet at this point that perfectly explains this change,“me at the beginning of 2016 vs. me at the end of 2016.”

We did a post on this meme about a month ago, but it has grown and multiplied that it only felt right to honor it with another post. After all if you can’t laugh about 2016, where does that leave you? So, check out the best memes that perfectly explain how you felt at the beginning of 2016 vs. the end of 2016:
