1. Let's start off with when he stole Pharrell's hat all like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
2. And when he spotted this sign and saw an amazing photo opportunity.
3. He released a new album that featured songs with lyrics like this.
4. And this.
5. But mainly this.
brb, off to make Ed fall in love with me every single day.
6. He mastered the art of this adorable hands-in-pockets red carpet pose.
7. And his Twitter game was on point.
11. Another time he was perfect was when he hung out with Taylor Swift's cat and the most adorable photo of all time was taken.
12. NO WAIT THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLE PHOTO OF ALL TIME.
13. NO WAIT IT'S THIS.
14. His Halloween costume was also pretty epic.
15. And he was adorably entertained by Kermit the frog.
16. Then he went and made this comment which, fun fact, is the most perfect comment made in the whole of 2014.
17. And this exchange is just 👌
18. He reached peak Ed Sheeran hotness during his performance on The X Factor.
20. Our ovaries almost couldn't handle it.
21. There was the time he got sassy when someone accused him of not wishing Taylor Swift a happy birthday.
22. (Sidenote: This reference to Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" was fricking amazing too.)
TAKE IT OFF THEN.
