List Rules Vote up the memes that most accurately express how you feel closing out the relentless nightmare year of 2016.

The year 2016 got the meme it deserved: "Me at the Beginning of 2016 vs Me at the End of 2016," which did exactly what it said on the tin: hope vs. despair, energy vs. lethargy, and life vs. death, all portrayed in the language of pop culture, delivered in bite-sized form via Twitter.

In case you were locked away like The OA, 2016 was a huge bummer for a lot of people. Syria, Brexit, the U.S. presidential election, Russia's involvement in the U.S. presidential election, a slew of celebrity deaths - it was pretty rough. The "Me at the Beginning of 2016 Meme, Me at the End of 2016 Meme" captured this exhaustion and devastation in side-by-side, pictorial form. Here are some of the best.
