*insert mind-blown emoji*

We think we speak for errrrrrrybody when we say that 2018 has been a doozy.

This year has had more than it's a fair share of kerfuffles, which includes but is not limited to heartwrenching heartbreaks, wonderful weddings, celebrity catastrophes, wild-wild-wild weather and the occasional political armageddon.

For your viewing pleasure, we've rounded up the most earth-shattering, mind-boggling, who-what-huh moments of 2018, so you're welcome. 

Let's begin, shall we?

1. Killmonger body tattoos in Black Panther


Why it made our list: Michael B. Jordan's tats set Twitter alight with thirsty tweets left and right. 

2. Hazza and Megz get hitched

"Where is Pippa?"

Why it made our list: Will's little brother has always been our not-so-secret crush but I guess we're happy he was scooped up. 

3. Tide pods were a thing

"Cinnamon Challenge FTW." 

Why it made our list:  While this didn't hit our shores, we admit to getting a touch of PTSD (see: planking, running man, mannequin).

4. Crazy Rich Asians made waves

"About time."

Why it made our list: Breaking box-office numbers here and there, setting new records and exceeding expectations (the people want diversity!), the first film by a major Hollywood studio to feature a majority Asian American cast since 1993 speaks volumes. 

5. Libspill

"Again?!? "

Why it made our list: This revolving door of "politicians" is giving all of us a case of vertigo. 

6. To All The Boys I've Loved Before made us believe in rom-coms and diversity

"Google: how to conjure up Peter Kavinsky."

Why it made our list:  Woah, woah, woah, why would it not? Thank you, Netflix for giving us Noah Centineo and Lana Condor and true love. 

7. Lady Gaga using the same quote over and over

"Find that one in 100 ya'll"

Why it made our list:  Um, 'cause we want to the THAT one (if you ever need us, Bradley). 

8. Aussie's Strawberry Needle Sabotage crisis

"I mean, why, like, who would do such a thing?!"

Why it made our list: 'Cause Straya nearly had an epidemic and how would we have survived without strawberries?!

9. Anything Trump-y

"No comment."

Why it made our list: We're not kidding, no. comment. 

And to that we say, bring on 2019!
