Ariana's 2017 was a roller-coaster of events and emotions. She struggles with depression and anxiety and she often handles those issues with memes and dark humor. She loves deep conversations about controversial topics, which she has found is a bad way to make friends. The Flint Water Crisis is not a thing of the past. The water is still contaminated and her family is still struggling with their health because of it. Sexual harassment and assault are still problems and Ariana says talking about it is okay. While she likes the controversial discussion, Ariana is like everyone else in that she doesn't like actually dealing with it. When she has to deal with life, she finds comfort in that no one is special and everyone is ultimately the same.
