Oh 2017, I will be so glad to say a forever goodbye to you because let’s be real you’ve been a bit, well, shit really haven’t you. Obviously there’s been worst years in history, years with plagues and wars and let’s not forget 2016 with Trump, any year where a President Of The United States uses Twitter to share his vile odious opinions is one that could have been better.

Has my search history tamed down this year? Nope not at all, I might have been laying in bed at 3pm and quietly sobbing about just how scary things are out there in the real world but I was still asking Google the weird and wonderful stuff that popped into my brain in between sobs.

The eagle eyed among you will notice there’s a couple of months missing, this is because I had major surgery on my shoulder and couldn’t physically use my phone, also, I was so hecking high that the brief phone hiatus was probably for the best.

So here it is, my Google search history 2017:
