2020 in review

Hey guys! How has the new year been treating you so far? Hopefully it’s been going okay for you. I know a lot of people have already been posting their 2020 year in review with all the things they have accomplished or overcame. And I figured I might as well do the same.

My 2020 started with a bang! I got promoted at my work, technically. But then the global pandemic happened and everything went bonkers. But I graduated with my masters degree in April and started on a wonderful creative journey with my best friend that has been one of the most rewarding things in my life.

The summer was difficult because no one was hiring or no one wanted to hire me but thankfully I was still able to work some shifts and things slowly were starting to get back to normal.

I was able to reapply myself to producing content for this blog! The thing that I have always wanted to do and create for. And it has grown in ways I didn’t think possible. I have also added new content to share, anime and manga, and gotten back into what my blog was originally started for, book reviews!

It’s been a long ass year and I am glad that it has ended and we can all start ‘new’ with 2021. I have never been a fan of new year resolutions and I don’t plan on starting any anytime soon but I do feel as though this will be the year for lots of small actionable goals used as stepping stones towards that big picture goal that I haven’t exactly put to paper just yet.

There were some sad parts to this year, most notably that I wasn’t able to go to Chicago with my best friend for a two day concert that we were so freaking excited for. But we were able to keep our tickets and seats which was amazing considering that we managed to snag floor seats near the stage. But we will get to use them maybe hopefully this year if people start acting smart and kind and consider others instead of their own self and inconvenience (I’m not holding my breath).

All in all while 2020 sucked ass. It wasn’t the worst. Because it could have been a whole lot worse and I did get to do something I never thought I would ever do.

I also ended the year by writing about 10% of a novel (I think) that had been floating around in my head and that was very exciting.

Part of the reason I started this blog was because I love reading but I love writing. I love sharing words that can connect with all sorts of people all over the world. And I love knowing that I am not the only one that feels that way. That is why I write. To connect. Because for a long time I felt as if I was the only one. I was lonely. But with writing I found others. And through this blog I have found even more people to connect with.

And I hope that 2021 will grow this small community even more.

Thanks for hanging out!
