Surviving 2020 more or less unscathed- it certainly hasn't been my worst year personally, but that hasn't made the ride any less wild. The lockdown measures appear to have worked out okay and COVID-19 has largely been eradicated in the state of Victoria, with low numbers across the rest of the country. Society is easing back into something resembling normalcy, though admittedly I'm kind of an indoor cat and lockdown is my ideal lifestyle.

Hilariously the email they sent out specifies that all stores will be open late with doors closing at 7pm, however, the normal closing hours are actually 9pm so, in fact, they are closing early on account of the 8pm curfew. But like, props to marketing for that one I guess? Whether or
