It’s been an entire year. I hope everyone had a good year. I thought I would wrap up the year by looking back at every single book I read in 2021. Honestly, I’m surprised by how many books I read. Not only that but I started reading new genres during the course of this year, though it still is related to fantasy/sci-fi (for the most part). We’ll see if 2022 is similar in terms of how many books I read. I have a lot on my reading list still.
How is there only one month left in 2021? This year both crawled and flew by at the same time. It was a stressful year for sure. I don’t know if I would consider 2021 better or worse than 2020. But it was definitely something. From almost losing my job to frantically working on getting things transferred to a new company to prevent lights out… it’s been a bit much the last two months. Not to mention there’s been a lot of health issues going on in my family. I’m looking forward to putting this year behind me. Still got one more month to go, but I’m hoping the holidays help lift things up a little.
October and my favorite holiday are over. A lot happened in October for me. A good portion of that was stressful. From my dad being put into assisted living and his power of attorney trying to guilt-trip my sister and me to talk to him for the first time in eight years (not going to happen), to listening to our old neighbors complain about squatters that moved into his foreclosed home, to almost losing my job… it’s been a bit much. Not that there weren’t other elements that I loved from this past month. I’ve had a blast being creative, read some great books, and enjoyed playing new games that I saw pieces of before. So, I thought I would reflect on the elements I loved from the last month as well as go over my goals from last month as well as the ones I have for this month.
