hi. it's me again.

 2020. Man alive, this year has been a little crazy. 

First of all, I don't even know where to begin with my ramblings. The global pandemic of the Covid-19 and the subsequent stupidity of the American public is my current vexation. I mean, how hard is it to STAY HOME and WEAR A MASK and WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS. I personally have been quarantined three times due to possible exposure because of selfishness of people. I'm so over the debates and the arguments surrounding the pandemic. At what point did people stop believing in BASIC SCIENCE and MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS. Of course, I'm a little more cautious due to the fact that I am high risk, and absolutely would be ravaged by the coronavirus. And there are people in my own family that don't believe that it's like, REAL or something. They continue to live their lives, covid be damned. It really boils my blood that I have to fight over something as basic as the HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF MY CHILDREN. #sorrynotsorry. 

And that's not even the tip of the iceberg that is this dumpster fire of a year. Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash. President Donald Trump (who is very undeserving of the title) somehow, miraculously made it through an impeachment trial. How? That is a very good question that will be discussed for years to come. Personally, I think the man is an idiot, a racist, a sexual predator, and a pedophile. So, you know, let's put this piece of garbage on a pedestal. 

In related news, can we talk about the absolute shiteshow that is the 2020 Presidential Election?It's pretty sad when we have to choose between two bad choices. I mean, next to Trump, Biden looks like an angel; but he has his downside as well.

Oh, and of course there is the murder hornets. And the great toilet paper crisis. Freaking school closures is the current bane of my existence. My kids will be doing 2 days a week in person, and 3 days remote learning. I am relieved about this, because kids aren't going to be social distancing. Sure, maybe for a hot minute. Until they have a crush and wanna hold hands in the hall, or make-out somewhere. And there are parents arguing FOR 5 day a week, IN PERSON class. That is wild to me, especially with how the virus spreads.... You see? This is what I am talking about when I say I have thoughts.... so very, many thoughts. 

And of course let's not forget about the wildfires in Australia, followed by flooding. Or the awful, awful murder of George Floyd, which has sparked outrage across the nation. I am thrilled with the protests that are going on all around. There has been a disparity between black and white in this country for too long. I wish I could rally and join the protests, but there is no way for me to do that because I am immuno-compromised. 

We also have the plague of locusts, and probably some other horrible thing that I haven't remembered. Sheesh, though, I don' think we can handle any more disasters. 

And that is where I leave you on this fine, early Monday. I leave you tired, from everything and of everything.
