2020: A Lesson In Intentionality

Alternative titles include but are not limited to: 2020: WTF? 2020: Let Me Out 2020: Where is 2021, already?

We’re just two days out people, I repeat, just two days out. I’d actually planned to film a funny baking video today (that I’ll save for later), but dang it, editing is hard.
