It’s the kind of year that, in a decade, we’ll look back and say, “What the heck was the deal with 2020?” It’s the year we learned the dreaded term “social distancing,” COVID-19 shut down life, turmoil and racial tension surrounded our cities, and wildfires and other natural disasters occurred at seemingly biblical rates. Oh, and we’re still a few months from a presidential election.

To sum up how we feel about this year so far, we scoured the internet in search of the best GIFs that depict exactly what it feels to live in this very odd year. Check them all out below.
