The Best Memes of 2016

It's December 1st aka the final month of the year, it's the final week of blogging, and the final ounces of my motivation are slowly slipping away. In honor of it all, this week I decided to do three wrap-up blog posts. I'll be wrapping up the semester of blogs, I'll wrap up this final book we're reading, and I thought in the spirit of social media and the year coming to a close I'd wrap up the best memes of 2016.

The Gavin Meme

I don't exactly know who this little boy is, I think he's the son of a Viner. Oh yeah, 2016 saw the end of Vine too! Anyway, I digress. Gavin has these adorable facial expressions, and they make even better memes.

The Mr. Krab Meme

This meme was ALL OVER Twitter a few months back. I don't really watch Spongebob (please don't yell at me) but this meme was quite relatable to me.

The Hooded Kermit Meme

This is one of the newest memes of this year and I don't even know where it came from or why it surfaced, but regardless I love it so much.

The Harambe Meme

We can't discuss the most iconic memes of 2016 without mentioning this beloved gorilla. I'm not sure why this meme blew up the way it did, I mean the bloody gorilla got 15,000 votes in the presidential election. All I have left to say is RIP Harambe.

The Woman Doing Math Meme

I had no idea what to call this one, except what it is. This was one of my personal favorites during 2016, it honestly made me laugh so much.

The Arthur Fist Meme

This meme truly speaks to me. Sometimes something really ticks you off and you just naturally form a fist. Also the 90's kid in me loves Arthur, so obviously this meme is one of my favorites. 

The Joe Biden/Barack Obama Meme

Possibly the biggest event of 2016 was the election of a new President. With a new President comes saying goodbye to the old one, and his right-hand man the Vice President. People love Barack Obama and Joe Biden's relationship, so obviously they made memes out of it.

Today's lesson: memes are great. It's so weird that 2016 is quickly coming to a close, but I'm ready for a new beginning. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together!


  1. I love this post Sierra! Too funny! My personal favorite would have to be the Barack Obama and Joe Biden meme. Some of the things people come up with on Twitter are absolutely hilarious and never fail to amaze me. Social media in 2016 was entertaining to say the least.

  2. Why was this post even a thing? What has the world come to? Great post but like c'mon society.

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
