Well off the top of my head....

Bad:
Parents got in a serious car crash (they are okay now though)
Brother moved out
All the f***ing terrorist attacks
My aunt's boyfriend died of lung cancer
Trump
Stress and depression

Good:
I lived another year
Got permission from parents to get pet rats, got stuff for rats (I don't have them yet though)
Most of the holidays were lots of fun
Saurian progress (it's new awesome dinosaur game; go check it out)
Made a Flight Rising account, lot's of fun on there (an addictive dragon breeder game)
Went to Dave'n'Busters and Kings Island (a game place and themepark near me)
Other stuff happened that was good, lots of small stuff, but I don't remember what right now

Eh while some of it was really amazing... the awful things that happened were too awful to make it a good year overall. My worst year so far, unfortunately.

The Beginning wasn't very eventful, school etc. Went to my mother's house all summer and slept in till 1 PM everyday. November sucked, 4/5 of our dogs died and the last ran away, but we got a new one :P I didn't complete ANY of last year's resolutions xD

The beginning was complete shit. My best friend who was very close to me suddenly decided I wasn't worth her time anymore.
I was really sad and alone and tbh wanted to die a little bitbut I've recovered from that now.
Under the summer my dad also died.
Like 2 weeks ago I got my first boyfriend though, so that fixed all the shit 2016 threw at me. He's my everything now. <3
I hope 2017 will be a better year for me.

From a political and celeb view it was garbage. ie Brexit, Trump, AfD, refugee politics; and musical legends dying.
From a personal view, meh. The only really really good thing was being to the gig of NOFX and Pennywise, befriending and meeting Wonk Unit and seeing them live, and befriending Slaves UK and seeing them live, getting some sick recordings and memories that still make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Two good things happened, one of which is going to continue to help me through 2017, hopefully. Otherwise, this year was extremely shitty and I think the only year that was worse for me was 2013. I've learned a lot about myself and about others this year, at least.

Sadly, many people will remember this year negativity because of all the political chaos and celebrity deaths, but as far as my own personal life, it was actually one of my best and most memorable and productive years :la:

1. I put my writing skills to the test and wrote my first fanfiction, which ended up being a big success 
2. Saw "thundersnow" for the first time (as a bit of a weather geek, that's a big deal for me, and it's extremely rare)
3. Got to meet my favorite voice actor at an anime convention 
4. Saw some of the most beautiful sunsets and storm clouds I've ever seen in my life, and captured photos
5. Went to an amusement park I'd never been to before
6. And there were a lot of great movies that came out too

The good parts always make me sad to see a year end, but hopefully 2017 will be even better. There's still about 6 and a half hours to go where I live :la:

Some good things happened in 2016 - like being with Lalaloraa in Germany for three weeks, and then them coming back to stay with me at my home for another three weeks, my being accepted back into college again - and making some great friends, and overall making much progress in dealing with mental health problems, as well as meeting Lapisara after five years of waiting!

Although this year has hit hard with me having to quit college in January due to ill health, and pet related death, as well as celebrities dying. Bit of a mixed bag this year. I think that this year has been a good one for my personal growth, however. :shrug:
