I don't want to talk about death right now - RIP Carrie Fisher and Richard Adams. I can't give them their due, so I'll let others speak if they're going to.

The more I work on my thesis, the more resistant I am to major edits. I can't tell you how often I've pulled the whole structure up to get at the foundations already. I have good notes on clearing up some obscure points and cleaning up the intro, so I'll just apply those. I think there's very much a point when you just have to go, "This project is basically done, and needs to be finished rather than re-done."

2016 was a garbage year, yeah? Let's not play. I don't really think it's going to get any better, any time soon. When it comes to deaths, well, everyone goes eventually and people aren't passing away now incidentally - it's time to consider that an entire generation is passing away. I'm not happy either. We keep the people we love alive by taking to heart the things they taught us, both their mistakes and successes. We dispose of those we hate by refusing to acceed to their vision of how we ought to live - to live on our own terms.

I don't want to bring too much of 2016 into 2017. I don't have much reason to believe it'll be much easier than the year before it, so the freer I am from old tasks, the more energy I have to devote to the future.
