The co-worker you thought was annoying, for repeatedly mentioning how long January has been this year, was actually right all along. A team of researchers at the Institute of Researching Things and Stuff, Hyderabad, have published a paper that confirms the fact that January 2020 was 365 days long, instead of the usual 31. “It’s an unusual phenomenon and you should definitely apologise to that co-worker of yours,” said the lead researcher from the team.

“At first, we concluded that the reason we felt January 2020 was never-ending was because of the ongoing climate crisis, national turmoil and the promotions of Love Aaj Kal,  reads the report. “But after doing some research and stuff we found out that the year had 365 whole days.”

According to the paper, the team analysed datas from several Tweets and Instagram captions of people claiming that the first month of the year 2020 seems like it has been going on forever. After going through hundreds and hundreds of entries, they successfully concluded that the first month of the year was, in fact, as long as a year itself.

The internet is torn between trusting the reliability of the research. “I don’t know whether the scientists are right or not, but every morning I wrote one happy and motivational quote in my Bullet Journal and I think I have 31 entries. Or they could be 365. I’m really bad at Geography,” Tweeted celebrity influencer and Bullet Journal enthusiast GinAndGlutes.

The spokesperson of the research team released a statement asserting the validity of the research. “We, at the Institute of research and Stuff, are extremely efficient at doing our jobs and y’all haters can suck it.”
