The year 2020 has been filled with uncertainties and unexpected events. More than half a year has pass for many of us still in quarantine. With offices, schools, malls, being shut down to prevent the spread of the virus, people have been trying to distract themselves by adopting different habits, such as painting, singing, dancing, etc.
Our tangible bodies are confined to one place and can’t move around but our mind sure can, isn’t it? We could be anywhere mentally.
A viral meme trend on social media has caught everyone’s attention and people are jumping on the band wagon. In this you think of a place where you mentally are or want to be to maintain your sanity in these difficult times and make a meme out of it.
To become a part of these meme trend, all you need to do is put the words; “Mentally I am here” to the first picture that comes to your mind.
Now some people have been in their happier places, trying to stay calm and get through this tough time; but seems like the pandemic has hit some people really hard- they are stressed, exhausted, confused and their memes clearly show that! For some their safe place is the Friends’ apartment or the gazebo in Star Hollow of Gilmore Girls.
Let’s have a look at some of the memes here that gives a chance of little self-analysis of our own:
