The 365 eternally long days of 2017 are finally over, leaving us with newly blank slates and boundless optimism as we embrace the first couple days of a new year. But how, exactly, did we get here? Outside of the sheer force of will and strength that Americans naturally possess, there's loads of technology and progress to thank — not least of which should be bestowed on the many Uber drivers across the country and the world that have made our lives infinitely easier on a day-to-day basis. Holidays, rainy days, surge days — yep, we had a whole hell of a lot of those in 2017 and even more as the year came to a close.
