So here we are. 2017 you have arrived, and you are welcomed with open arms. Many of us left 2016 in the dust thankful that it was finally over. So many shock moments from surprise electoral winnings to sad losses and attacks on humanity that kept us glued to various social media streams.

So I know there is a small percentage of the population that don’t have to work due to having enough wealth to sustain them. And then we have the odd hippie that decides they want to live in a cave off the land. That’s great for them, but for the majority of the human population, work is something we can't decide not to do. Work = Money, which in turn = food,...
