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.
I have lost control of the situation.

But, hey, let’s try to look on the bright side…
Things will be fine, eventually, in thousands of years, for rocks

2020 is such a shitshow that six months has felt more like eleventy billion. FACT.
How many days have we had our kids home now? Is it 3,000? Because it feels like 3,000.

Every day feels apocalyptic…
would be amazing if we could just have one day in 2020 where it doesn’t feel like the world is ending

Or like an episode of “The Tiger King.”
The rest of the world is watching America like America watched Tiger King.

Things are so bad, some of us have made crying part of our daily routine.
I asked my son what time he wanted me to wake him up on the 1st day of school:
“6:30, so I can shower & cry.”

We’re getting desperate for any distractions from this hellscape.
I’m so bored with this lockdown that the phone rang tonight and I answered

In fact, dropping acid and howling at the moon seems pretty reasonable for 2020.
Self care is canceled. We’re doing acid and yelling at the moon naked

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.
