If 2020 was a person, it’s name would be E. BE. THINGS. There are so many things to talk about; every week comes with its own drama- sometimes negative, other times a shade of light breaks through our window and then it disappears before we can even grasp it.

Sometimes, you just have to turn off your cellphones and stay away from real life, 2020 has been a year of intense conundrum. Maintain sanity, keep your mental health in check.
Question upon questions; seeking the purpose of life, awaiting God to give us answer to the aim and objective of this turbulence. No one knows tomorrow, it could be me, it could be you, like a magician, 2020 has a lot of tricks in its pocket.
