Everything that went RIGHT this year.

9 - Air pollution is getting better.

10 - #BlackLivesMatter is raising awareness.

11 - My grandmother is starting a YouTube channel. 

12 - Knives Out was added to Netflix. Watch it if you haven't.

13 - Animals are coming back to the cities!

14 - You're alive.

15 - This 90-year-old veteran amputee dude went skydiving because how else are you supposed to celebrate your birthday.

16 - All the strength and love that is around us now.

17 - CEOs of delivery services, sanitiser, face masks, and toilet paper are probably doing very well. 

18 - That cat that said 'Well hi!' on Instagram.

19 - Two of my family members got married in quarantine.

20 - That guy who bought some stuff and made a mini supermarket at home so his grandmother could go "shopping" (aw).

It's the little things that keep us going.
