Today on How To Do Life, Chryssy and Heather recap some of the happening of the first half of 2020. From a joyous New Year spent abroad to the cancellation of everything, the installation of Tiger King, and a very COVID grad season, we find ourselves here.
“Here,” as it were, is the precipice of the second half of the year. It seems dividing this year in two can’t hurt, and maybe the second half can improve.
We take a look into the world of being a futurist, deciding to make some predictions of our own for the second half of the year.
Chryssy believes we should offer our country back to the queen on the Fourth of July. Perhaps this whole being our own boss thing isn’t going as planned. She suggests if Lizzie won’t take us back, maybe we rewrite American history using the musical Hamilton as our starting point. It releases on the 4th on Disney+ and it seems if we want a rewrite, a diverse cast with loads of talent is as good a place to start as any. If all else fails, she predicts the Hunger Games.
Heather assumes cats may take over as our leaders. Really nothing can surprise us at this point.
Chryssy’s kids think school will be cancelled, Halloween will be cancelled, the Macy’s parade will be cancelled, Christmas will be cancelled, and then the spell will be broken on New Year’s Eve. We sincerely hope they are correct.
We talk about some “actual” possibilities, too. Like that regularly rule-following people may begin breaking laws to be on the right side of history. Like that the election might cause some serious something – though we aren’t quite sure what. Like a sharknado – because, well, 2020.
This one is a fun rollick through what may be. Talk to your friends about it, too.
Until next time.
