It’s weird to think that most of the years that people used to think of as the future have already passed. The year 2000, 2001, and 2010 all came and went already, and still no jetpacks or flying cars. The year 2020 is the last “future” year that most of us will experience in our lives; the next futuristic sounding year won’t be until 2050, then 2100. (I damn well better be in a relationship by then; I better not still be alone at 122. ¬_¬)
It’s hard to believe we’re just a few hours away from a whole new decade; they don’t happen too often, maybe only once every few years or so.
