2020, thanks for the hindsight

Well, if my goal had been to avoid documenting the past year in any way, shape, or form, I’d be getting at least one gold star. And I’ll go ahead and give myself another because why not?

But if I am seriously thinking of what almost precisely a year of isolation has done to me, there are a few lessons I’ve gleaned: first, I am both more and less of a social creature than I’d always thought; second, cooking is a thing I like but am not disciplined when it comes to daily meal making; third, I am one-hundred-and-ten percent into the healing energy of crystals.

So, I guess, that feels like a year well spent. And I’ve continued on my journey of collaborative game-playing in the world of DnD, which has meant I needed to purchase many MANY more dice. Again, a year well spent. Now with this new year in full swing, who knows what wonderful self-discoveries are to be made? Not me, that’s for sure, but guess I’ll be the first to find out (that’s how the process works, if I’m to understand correctly).

All right, it’s never too late to make some resolutions, so for 2021, here we go:

  1. be more honest about how i’m feeling
  2. pick up some new skill
  3. try reading a book in japanese
  4. actually, get back into studying a little japanese every day
  5. find a new favorite dish

Don’t wanna overdo it, so I’ll cap it at five for now. Thing about resolutions is they can always be revisited later, with a more sober and realistic eye.
