It's 2019. Can you believe it? Another year, another fresh start– and another chance to reflect on the previous year. There's something exciting about the start of a new year. It feels limitless; like we can do anything. Whether you're a big fan of making a list of goals, or a vision board or taking it one day at a time, there's no denying that starting with a fresh slate in the new year is an exhilarating feeling.
And while it's awesome to look ahead and leave the past in the past, sometimes it's fun to think back on the previous year and remember everything wonderful and hard that happened.
It's also fun to reminisce about the absolutely stupidest things we did. If we can't laugh at ourselves, what's the point? Also, laughing about our mistakes and sharing them with strangers on the Internet is better than sitting around and crying about them...right?
Twitter user @rachelmillman asked people to respond with the dumbest, stupidest things they did in 2018.

We make foolish decisions when under the influence.Like self-inflicted food poisoning... Stay away from the leftovers!
Hot fudge soup?You're better off going to Dairy Queen. The lesson here is to never make a homemade hot fudge sundae.
Well, this is one way to bond with your old supervisor...They probably didn't even notice, right? Who checks every single group they're accidentally added to on Facebook?
This is the best.
