It's been a heck of a year: Since the beginning of 2018, Apple topped a trillion-dollar market cap, Hurricane Michael ravaged the eastern seaboard, Saudi Arabia lifted its ban on female drivers, Canada legalized marijuana, and the President of the United States sat down with the Supreme Leader of North Korea.
