How has 2020 changed everyone? Let us count the ways. In response to pretty much everything going absolutely haywire this year, a new meme has emerged. People are now taking to Twitter to share the ways the year has made them evolve. To no one’s surprise, people had a lot to share about how they’ve changed this year, with the responses ranging from hilarious to more serious. (But mostly, they’re pretty funny.)
We’ve gathered up some of our favorites below.

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
