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!
It’s the end of another year, and also the end of another decade. If you’re worried that I’m going to make you endure a ten-year retrospective like every other content creator on the internet seems to be doing, let me put your fears to rest: I’m not. I can barely remember what I did ten days ago, let alone ten years ago. And while you might be entertained by a cringeworthy look back at my pre-teen years, that’s a trip down memory lane I’m gonna pass on.
As is tradition though, I am going to wrap up 2019 with a look back at my favorites from the year. I promise you I’ll keep it concise, so without further ado, on to the lists!
Before I start, I think we should all just give ourselves a pat on the back for making it to the end of the year. Whether 2018 was the best year or the worst year of your life, finishing another calendar year is really something to be proud of.
As I do every year, I’m wrapping up 2018 with a look back at my favorite music, books, video games, blog posts, and other moments that made the year special. I do my best to keep it brief, but let’s face it… there’s a lot of great things to be thankful for.
Here we are readers, another new year is upon us! It’s hard to believe 2017 has passed us by already, isn’t it?
Like I did last year, I’d like to start of this new year with a look back at what made it special – my favorite books that I read, the albums I listened to, the blog posts I wrote, and the moments I was able to enjoy. This is more meant to be a summary than anything else, but you can bet that I’ll be linking back to old posts if you want to read more about what I did this year.
In addition, I’m saving my 2017 Goals Review for next week, where I’ll be looking back at how last year’s goals went and what I plan to do for my goals this year. Be sure to keep an eye out for that next week!
So without further ado, here’s my Year in Review for 2017!
