"Take a deep breath, enjoy your life, hug your family, shit 'bout to get ..."
My math might not be exact, but August might just be the last chill-ish moment before the pace picks up.
I'm not saying this to be alarmist, its just a thought thats been crossing my mind. We're eagerly looking towards the outcomes for the election and covid. The lead up to both situations will bring about loonies, once in lifetime headlines, and anxiety.
Covid & election are front of mind, but there are other things coming we may or may not be thinking about.
Four months from now on November 4th we're either going to be aight or angry.
August - still waiting on Bidens VP pick September - Start of fall (22nd) October - Election lead up November - Election (?) December - Start of Cold and Flu season
But, I'm hoping we don't get a spike and rise. Folks have abandoned masks, which, aight, I get that it seems OK to do but Covid also takes a long time to appear, so by the time rates begin to pick up (if they do, assuming we see an increase during flu season) the damage will have already been done.
