In case you hadn't realised, we're about halfway through 2020.
And it certainly feels like it's been a long year already, drought, bushfires, a pandemic, a fish death event in Lake Wyangan and now we can watch a nation convulse and splutter as people take to the streets.
For students completing their Higher School Certificate this year, it's been a year like no other.
It's a place we spend around 13 years of our lives and while not everyone enjoys it, everyone looks back on it once they have to start turning up for work.
With the current pandemic rules it also means there's plenty of questions about what happens at the end of the year.
While exams might be able to happen, what happens when year 12s want to celebrate the end of their schooling?
And when it comes to graduation and formals? Nobody wants to do that in a room of only 50 people.
Hopefully, these aren't considerations students or teachers will have to look at because the social restrictions may have lifted.
But only time will tell.
