You might be saying, “Hey, thanks universe, but I’m done feeling scared/terrified/even mildly horrified forever.” And that would be a perfectly rational place to take in life. We’ve all experienced a bunch of classic horror film plots in the last year and change. So, as we said, if the uncertainty quotient for the next decade or so has been fulfilled by the real world, it is understandable. But if you’re the kind of individual who still needs to experience some occasional, managed, and most importantly, fictional thrills and scares, that’s also entirely real, and 2021 is here to go.
