When it comes to the 12-month calendar, February is the odd one out. It is the shortest, for starters, but it is also the only month that can have an extra day tacked onto it every four years. February 29th, the leap day-- arguably the worst day to have a birthday on-- has an interesting backstory behind it, which all revolves around trying to find order with the imperfect aspects of the natural world.

There is a lot that could be said about the 2010’s. Above all else, though, this decade has shown the way technology has become so inter-woven in our society that it is near impossible to separate the two.

From the social media apps we frequent, to how we work or pay for food or communicate with one another, technology has made our lives far more convenient.

(Well, okay, Amazon might have, considering they did just that with Amazon Go in 2018.)
