My Predictions for 2016

  1. The US Presidential Election will dominate the news cycle and thus the culture and conversations of Americans. The media will exploit the opportunity for every dollar they can get out of it and we will be terribly exhausted from it all.
  2. The global economy will be strong and on an upward trend overall.
  3. Russia will further alienate itself from the West.
  4. The Middle East will continue to be a steady narrative of unrest, especially (and unfortunately) Syria.
  5. There will be a social media company (either currently lesser known or yet-to-be founded) that will skyrocket to a high level of usage in a short period of time and will rival instagram, snapchat, and twitter (maybe not facebook).
  6. The Patriots will win the Super Bowl.
  7. The summer Olympics will be fun and a time when many global conflicts will have a brief hiatus.
  8. The Warriors will win the NBA finals.
  9. Spring in Virginia will be very cold (again).
  10. The Chicago Cubs will finally win the World Series.
