Time is so weird lately.

Believe it or not...

1. It has only been a little over two months, TWO MONTHS, that Charlotte Awberry was discovered in the subway.

A different time. A different world.

2. It wasn't that long ago that everyone was talking about Cheer.


"Daytona" this. "Daytona" that.


Cheer feels like it came out seven years ago.


3. Just weeks ago, WEEKS AGO, there were (at least) seven people running for President.

The Trump impeachment feels like it happened a billion years ago.

6. Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" was number one at the beginning of 2020.

.@MariahCarey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is officially No. 1 on the #Hot100 for a third week. As this is the first chart of the 2020s, she becomes the first artist in history to rule the chart in four separate decades: 1990s, 2000s, 2010s & 2020s.


7. 13 weeks ago, Bong Joon-ho got what he deserved at the Oscars.

8. Tom Hanks wasn't the rona guy then, he was the guy who freaked out when they tried to cut off Parasite's Best Picture acceptance speech.


9. Everyone lost their damn minds over a relationship that has been over for 1.5 decades.

11. Baby Yoda was (still) a thing in 2020.


12. Laura Dern said she saw him at a basketball game.


13. Then every company made a baby version of their spokes-things. Remember Mr. Peanut dying and being reincarnated into Baby Peanut? That was 2020.
