Well I guess I can say that 2021 is off to an interesting start. As we all should know (and if you don't know then I have no idea where you have been but here is some news!) some protesters stormed the capitol building. Because of that people are really taking the time to give their opinions on the matter and are making noise about how disgusting it is, how wrong it was, how trump was the big boss at the end, blah blah blah. Honestly, it was one of those things that I was drinking to when it happened. Everyone was saying that 2021 would be the year we go back to "normal" and I think a lot of people had a sad reality throwing into their faces like a brick. It hurt and it made you realize how stupid it was for thinking something like that. Sure we can fantasize how the normalcy will come back once midnight stuck and just like Cinderella everything magically goes back to the way it was.
Here's the truth though for those that do live in that magical bubble. Were all screwed. We have been for a long time and there's always something going on in this big bad world. 2020 was just the year that the veil got burned off and the truth about what's going on got revealed and now people can't seem to take their eyes off of the news and can't seem to backtrack into a quieter life. How could you when there's so much fake news, people screaming, forests burning, and now mobs storming our nation's capital? It's like a drug we can't seem to get enough of. Just gotta keep the high going.
Now I do think that the storming of the capital was unnecessary and just added a dramatic effect over the way things are but hey, I don't control people and their actions. I just sit here and see it happen from the screens that are in my home and public spaces. ITs entertainment before this gets worse than it is and I have a feeling 2021 is going to be either just as bad or worse as 2020. I don't want it to be that way and I desperately hope that something changes but right now, I'm not as hopeful as I would like to be.
We will see what is up next in our new normal.
