It’s the last day of 2020. This has been the most frustrating year of my life, and I think I share a lot of other people’s sentiment when I say that it was incredibly long. It is nuts to me that in March I was working at Adventures in Learning. We had trips planned. Work scheduled. Then it ended abruptly.
This year has given me the deepest insight into the human psyche that I could have ever hoped for, even deeper than I really wanted. I watched helplessly as people descended into insanity. Absolute insanity. Which then compounded. I saw a woman walking in to Walmart the other day wearing goggles, two masks, and latex gloves. 2020 broke a lot of brains.
People are motivated by fear. Everything else is really just a smokescreen. They can make claims that they care about XYZ, but they’re afraid. It was an ugly, nihilistic rabbit hole to go down. I came out of it, went ahead and quit social media, and now I feel much better.
I moved to Oklahoma from El Paso. I got my shit together. I started editing full time again. I’m going to be a family man! All of that is wonderful, and exciting.
But yeahl…I’m not sure that I have much more to say about this year. Maybe I will in five years.
Have a good one, folks!
