Dear humans of the internet,
I’m just writing to say thank you for all you do. I think we’re all thankful that we have this thing called the internet on which to communicate, share, laugh, cry, scratch our heads, and punch our keyboards. Yeah, we’re thankful for the internet, but the internet is nothing without human beings. It’s you who make this a beautiful, wonderful, terrifying place. While I give thanks today for my IRL humans, I thought it appropriate that I do so for my internet humans, too, wherever you are and whatever you may or may not celebrate. I feel the weight of 2016 on my shoulders today, as I’m sure many people do. I’m not going to pretend that everything is perfect. But we remain grateful for the good things in life and for the making of better things to come. So thank you, humans of the internet. You’ve helped me discover who I am. You’ve helped me express myself. You’ve helped connect me to people I’d never otherwise have known. You’ve helped me learn. You’ve helped me challenge myself. Thank you, humans of the internet, for your unconditional awesomeness.
