It’s a brand new year, and we’re determined to be optimistic about what the future holds!

Let’s face it: Dealing with the global COVID-19 crisis has been draining for everyone. We’re hopeful that things will turn around in 2022, but we can’t help but laugh at the internet’s natural tendency to be snarky after all we’ve been through together! Here are some memes to help us laugh through the stress of heading into another pandemic year.

1. Don’t make any sudden moves, and whatever you do, don’t make eye contact.

2. Just a few days in and we’re already heading off the rails.

3. Just keep smiling, no matter what.

4. Remember, we are strong and resilient!

5. Ever feel like you’re stuck in a rerun of your least favorite show?

6. Just stop pretending. It’s OK.

7. We think we missed some fine print somewhere.

8. Did anyone else blink and miss two whole years, or is it just us?

9. Farewell, Mariah! Thank you for everything.

10. The “distant future” of old films is here, and it’s scarier than we could have ever imagined.

11. You’ve got to have something to look forward 2!

12. When every day feels approximately 72-hours long….

13. He’s (not so) grrrreeeaaat!

14. I’m lovin’ it.

15. It’s sink or swim, folks!

It’s so much easier to bear the burden of difficult times when we find humor in our everyday life. Here’s hoping this year exceeds our expectations – which shouldn’t be hard to do if we stick together!
