If you’re like AJ and Hillary, it’s possible your year has Not Gone According to Plan. Because, you know, so much of life totally, like, omg, always goes exactly the way you were expecting.

But yeah, this year is a lil’ extreme even for that.

AJ and Hillary like to refer to how they’re dealing with the current shitshow as OFFPLAN! (that’s trademarked and in all caps, so don’t you bitches even think about trying to steal it for your own nefarious usage.)

If it’s not totally clear, OFFPLAN! just means that nothing has gone as expected, and we’re all just doing our best to survive and not murder our spouses and loved ones with whom we’re currently quarantined.

If you find yourself in a similar boat, no need to fret. Here are some quick resources to help you deal.

Remember: Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Give everybody — even yourself — a lot more grace than you might even think is necessary.
