I don’t know about you, but 2020 feels like it’s been about five years long. Tony Soprano would probably say it’s been more like 500 years. Well, either way, you know what Madame De Stael says: “In life one must choose between boredom and suffering.” With that said, read on to find 10 important lessons for 2020 I learned on The Sopranos

Paulie Talking to Christopher on the Sopranos
Season Two, Episode Nine, “From Where to Eternity”

I learned on The Sopranos that the 2020 election season was going to feel like purgatory. Going to bed on election night was like peak purgatory. Christopher claimed that hell was “an Irish bar where it’s St. Patrick’s Day every day forever.” I disagree. Hell is more like sitting in front of your T.V. and hearing the *election projection* notifications show up on the screen with a boom.
