The Worst Year of All Time(Part 2)



Maybe it won’t be a repeat? Please? With a cherry on top?

Let’s be honest: we all remember it. December 31, 2019: a day of hopes and dreams. Oh, how wonderful 2020’s going to be! I’m going to achieve all my hopes and dreams this year! This is going to be the greatest year of all time! The clock struck midnight, and we all thought that this was the year! The year sent on a direct line from heaven!

Then Australia started burning and the world turned into a dumpster fire.

On January 26, 2020, Kobe Bean Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, were killed in a helicopter crash. January 30: the WHO labeled the coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency. On March 11, coronavirus was labeled a pandemic. And on May 25, 2020, George Floyd was killed at the hands of a police officer, and riots erupted all over the country. These are just a fraction of the depressing, heartbreaking events that occurred that year.

Now do you understand how bad of a year 2020 was?

It’s very understandable how a lot of us are worried about how 2022 could be 2020, part 2. But I’m here to tell all of you that there’s nothing to worry about. We’ll all be fineeeeeee, as long as nothing bad happens at the beginning of the year, right?

I mean,  the only thing we won’t be used to about COVID is if it gets a new name(Delta and Omnicron? What do these names even mean?).

However, I’m also here to state the cold hard facts. And it’s become clear that this year may be taking a slight mirror to 2020. Betty White died on December 31, 2021, and this year has already taken Sidney Poitier and Bob Saget. Now, here is how 2022 could take a mirror to 2020:

Russia and Ukraine are at heavy, heavy odds. They hate each other, like….a lot. Everyone cross your fingers that these two countries don’t go to war. Because then riots and protests could occur; not to mention World War 3! Bright side though, there won’t be school for sure. Seeing a pattern yet? 

Now, here is my comprehensive list on how to avoid 2022 becoming 2020. Just don’t do what I’m about to tell you not to do:

  1. Don’t eat bats. Please… just don’t. I can’t handle another pandemic. I really can’t.
  2. Don’t set stuff on fire. Wildfires are a thing, and we all remember that one orange sky in 2020. So don’t, and we have a slight chance of getting out of this year alive.
  3. Don’t copy every single dumb trend on the Internet. Remember that Internet points don’t mean anything. These trends just hurt us. Do you know the pain of having a class in the new building, and having to use the restroom? WE shut that down by doing some dumb Tiktok trends in there. Seriously guys, we have to learn from our mistakes sometime.
  4. Finally, just be good. Please. For humanity’s sake.

Maybe, just maybe, this won’t be the year sent from hell: the sequel! I really hope I didn’t just jinx humanity with this article, though.
