2020 in Review & 2021 Goals

Happy New Year, friends! 🥂 While rationally I know that things won’t magically improve with the turn of the calendar to 2021, it feels really liberating to leave 2020 and its suffering behind me. But before I skip into the sunset of 2021, it’s time for my annual year in review!

The Adventure Log is my monthly wrap-up post!

I swear that every day ages me at least a month but somehow also slows time down to a glacial pace. It’s been a long time since I’ve done an Adventure Log wrap-up (May & June, to be exact!) but I have to admit getting this up really assures me I’m finally back in my blogging groove!

Another month has come and gone. Did April both speed by and last 84 years for anyone else? It was so weird because the first half of the month was over in the blink of an eye, but I feel like it’s been April 28th for 3 weeks.

The weather has been getting lovely here in San Diego, which makes being inside a bit more difficult. I’m sneaking away to the rooftop patio of my apartment building on occasion (mask on) to soak up some sun, which is nice.

Well, March has been a wild month hasn’t it? My only solace is that I am not alone in my struggle. So many people around the world are experiencing the same fears and restrictions. I sincerely hope everyone is safe and healthy.
