I’ve been exhausted this entire week. What is it about vacations that cause them to leave you more exhausted after you take them than before? Admittedly, some of it is just the fact that awards season is now over. For nearly six months, that was my obsession and the first thing that I checked on every day. Now, that’s over and it’s definitely left a bit of a void.
Oh well, no matter! The end of awards season means that it’s finally time to truly move on to 2021! Seriously, it’s about time.
