Sigh. It has been quite a year, hasn’t it? And considering that 2020 isn’t even over and it already feels like we’ve crammed at least a decade’s worth of shit into the past six months, I’m scared for what’s to come.
So far we’ve got a global pandemic. A president who lies and spews hate with every breath that comes out of his mouth. We’re fighting off murder hornets and can’t-make-this-shit-up conspiracy theories. We’re in the midst of an election so bitter that one candidate (the lying and cheating one) has said he won’t concede even if he loses. The country is literally on fire right now. Oh, and then there’s that super fun thing we call remote learning.
2020 has been ROUGH, that’s for sure.
Rough patch? More like a dumpster fire.
Even God doesn’t know WTF is happening with 2020.
But, hey, let’s try to look on the bright side…
2020 is such a shitshow that six months has felt more like eleventy billion. FACT.
Every day feels apocalyptic…
Or like an episode of “The Tiger King.”
Things are so bad, some of us have made crying part of our daily routine.
So have regular anxiety spirals.
We’re getting desperate for any distractions from this hellscape.
In fact, dropping acid and howling at the moon seems pretty reasonable for 2020.
Things have gone so far off the rails, at this point we’ll take any news that doesn’t make us want to scream or curl up in the fetal position sobbing.
Because when you get down to it, 2020 can best be summed up with this:
P.S. VOTE, dammit.
