10 'The Grinch' Quotes That Defined Our Whole 2020 Mood

The, the, the... The Grinch.

10 'The Grinch' Quotes That Defined Our Whole 2020 Mood

Since our youth, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" has been considered a holiday staple. As we grew up, we only learned to appreciate the Grinch even more as we began to understand and laugh along with his cruel-humored jokes.

After seeing a few scenes from the movie and looking up some of his most iconic quotes, I've realized one thing. We've all turned into the Grinch this year. I mean who could blame us though, it is 2020. He's a mood™.

1. "Am I just eating because I'm bored?"

Let's be honest, we've all asked ourselves this question multiple times throughout this year (especially during quarantine).

2. "6:30 dinner with me. I can't cancel that again." 

Who else would we be having dinner with this year?

3. "Hate, hate, hate. Hate, hate, hate. Double hate."

I'd like to direct this one to the entire year of 2020.

4. "I guess I could use a little social interaction." 

I think we all feel this way at this point. Seriously, I miss normal social interactions.

5. "Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9, I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness." 

This year was filled with staring at the ceiling and scrolling through TikTok. Oh, and whipped coffee. We can't forget about the whipped coffee.

6. "Blast this Christmas music. It's joyful and triumphant." 

Personally, I know Christmas movies and music have been bringing me a lot of joy these past few weeks. So until the time comes, I am going to be rewatching Christmas movies on loop and blasting Christmas music.

7. "Help me... I'm feeling." 

This year really has made us feel a lot of different feelings. Maybe too many feelings.

8. "Be it ever so heinous, there's no place like home."

After spending so much time at home this year, it's total natural we are experiencing a love/hate relationship with it.

9. "If I can't find something nice to wear I'm not going." 

Let's be real. We all said this and, well, we were only going to the grocery store.

10. "Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more." 

Although this year has been tough for a lot of different reasons, it has taught us to look at things differently. So I think just like the Grinch, we all will be moving forward with a different perspective.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
