Remember looking forward to the future? Remember thinking “boy oh boy, things will get better?” Remember the anticipation for the return of the Roaring 20’s, the predictions about flying cars? Remember dreams? Well forget all that because 2020 is here and it has got NO TIME FOR YOUR OPTIMISM.
In celebration(?) of this momentous(?) year, let us look at 10 tweets that truly capture the spirit of the dawn of a decade.
10. Wait this isn’t Flavor Town
My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.
If 2020 had a flavor it’d be orange juice and toothpaste.

9. I don’t want no scrubs
How can a household of 2 people have 50 bowls?!
Is it just me or is quarantine about 75% doing dishes?

8. Baking bad
I will sooner die than face my own mind.
My favorite part of quarantine is that we were all forced to be alone with our thoughts for a little bit and everyone was like “Absolutely not. I will learn to bake bread from scratch.”

7. Mask the pain
I’m kind of relieved I can let my resting angry face just do its thing.
My dumbass out here smiling at folks with my mask on ???♀️

6. Operation Blackfish
We’re all gonna have a whale of a tail after this.
After being totally isolated in a confined space for almost two months, I totally understand how satisfying it must be for an orca to kill its trainer.

5. Stay safe out there
Have we tried “circle circle dot dot” yet?
Out of all the things I learned in grade school, trying to avoid cooties was the last one I expected to use

4. Back to the future
Just drop me off anywhere but here, please.
If time travel is invented in the future no f*cking way anyone is choosing 2020
— Laugh Landing (@LaughLanding) May 3, 2020
The whole thing needs a do-over.
Has anyone tried switching 2020 off and turning it back on again?

2. This one doesn’t count
Let us never ever speak of it again.
Years from now we're gonna be like
2018, 2019, 2021, 2022
"Hey you missed…"
"Nope! We don't talk about that one"

1. Walk’s gonna be lit
You gotta keep putting yourself out there.
COVID19 TIP: drink a bottle of wine before your daily isolation walk and it feels like an adventure x

All joking aside, things are pretty grim, but we can’t give up. Take care of yourself, take care of each other, take care of your community. Eventually we’re gonna hit a year that’s better than the previous one and not worse. And when that day comes, the memes will be glorious.
How are you coping with the madness of 2020?
