Thanks for spending this awful, trying, ridiculous and neverending year with us. For all the dark times, we also laughed a lot, had some milestones, and had an unprecedented year of interaction with you, our beautiful community! Here’s some thoughts (…okay, a lot of thoughts, hours of thoughts) about what our year in dramas was like, and another helping of the Goguma Awards, which we kicked off last year.
