I have a confession to make: you know how I usually keep a bullet journal to remember things that I do each month? Yeah, I haven’t been so great about keeping up with that the last couple of weeks. So if I miss a couple of things in my March wrap-up, that’s why.
I also have next to no concept of time anymore, so there’s that too.
ANYWAY, March was actually a pretty great month, because it’s spring now and there’s finally some green things (I think it’s called grass?) outside and the weather has been above freezing, so I’m very pleased about that.
And in case you missed it, this month’s blog posts were about:
Almost since the time I first started blogging, I’ve made a habit of kicking off each new year with a post about goals. I would look at how I did in meeting or making progress towards my goals for the previous year, and then I would look ahead and set some goals for the new year.
I’m not doing that this year.
You see, the past year (and the last few months in particular) have given me a lot of time to think about goals. And I think I’ve come to the conclusion that not just setting them, but also sharing them and assessing myself publicly is a recipe for disaster for me.
I know the new year doesn’t really mean anything – changing the year from 2020 to 2021 won’t magically make all of our problems go away. I gotta say though, it is nice to hang up a new calendar on the wall, to start a new bullet journal, and at least symbolically put the last year behind us.
I don’t want to diminish the hardships and tragedies that everyone endured this past year, of course, but I think there’s something to be said for the good things that happened this year. We can all grieve and still remember the moments that made us smile, too.
So, as is tradition, here is my Year in Review for 2020!
You know, I’ve been writing these “life update” posts for quite a while now, and I think I’m starting to run out of interesting things to say at the beginning of them. Maybe I should start sharing fun facts instead? I don’t have anything this time, but stay tuned for next month and maybe I’ll have something interesting to share.
Anyways, I wrote two blog posts this month, so make sure you check those out if you missed them!
By now, I’ve lived at my new place for about two weeks, and I’ve managed to not set anything on fire or break any appliances, so all things considered I’m doing pretty great! It’s been so nice to have my own space, and now that I’m 99% settled in, I wanted to share some photos and maybe talk a little bit about it.
