2020 Year in Review

You know when you start a year, and you’re all excited about the promise of a new beginning and full of the hope and optimism that, even though their may be some bumps along the way, you’re ultimately on a path heading towards a greater good?

Yeah, 2020 destroyed all of that.

Clearly I’ve left this blog abandoned for a year. Hell, I’ve left my life abandoned for a year. Truthfully, between focusing on my job, my family, and myself, there just hasn’t been a ton of extra energy on my end to dedicate to being the shitty influencer I strive to embody. Some might say this makes me a crappy blogger. I say it makes me a better human.

In spite of 2020 being a Chernobyl style disaster and my anxiety stress response at an all time high, I’m still cautiously optimistic for the next year. Not because I think things will magically go back to the way they were (they won’t), but because I need to cling to this tiny glimmer of optimism or else I will drown myself in rosé and cheese.

Before we embark on the new journey that is 2021, let’s run though a quick bullet point list of how I spent my Year of the Pandemic.
