I’m not going to lie…when I look at the world around me, sometimes I feel this way a little bit!
“Don’t say hate, gandhi, you keep throwing that word around so much it’s lost all of its meaning. Now I have to find another word stronger than hate to describe how I feel about others. I mega-loathe you all. Good day.” John C. McGinley as Dr. Cox on Scrubs
I think this quote applies to all of 2020:
“Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.” Michael Gambon as Professor Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I’m pretty sure this line from Ice Age: The Meltdown is actually the forecast for 2020:
“I’m trying to make a living here pal, it’s all part of my weather forecast! The 5 day outlook is calling for intense flooding, followed by the end of the world! With a slight chance of patchy sunshine, later in the week.”
When it seems like the world is spiraling out of control, this is helpful advice from Aaron Burr in Hamilton:
I am the one thing in life I can control.
This pretty much sums up how I feel as high school for Moose is “getting big in the window.” This transition was never going to be easy, but between not having the preparation at the end of 8th grade (including at least one trip with his class to visit the high school during a school day), that he was supposed to, and not being able to visit the high school multiple times over the summer like we had planned, I feel like we need something, anything, at this point, other than a vague, “We’re planning on face-to-face instruction as scheduled, maybe with masks required, but we’ll let you know later.”
Uh, Houston, we… we… we just can’t just throw this together at the last minute. So here’s what you’re gonna do. You’re gonna get the procedure up to us, whatever it is, and we’re gonna go over it step by step so that there’s no foul-ups. I don’t have to tell you we’re all a little tired up here. The world’s getting awfully big in the window. Tom Hanks as Jim Lovell in Apollo 13
