    The only things I HAVEN’T done from that list this year is to write down my goals, or start a channel. I love being creative, but don’t like being social. I’ve even been able to stop therapy this year because the pressure for me to be social is off, for the first year in my life! I’m sorry that it’s taken a pandemic to see that silver lining, but realizing that in late spring has been wonderful for me, personally. (Suddenly feeling a lack of pressure, not everything else from the pandemic, I mean). I have an amazing Pinterest account that I have hundreds of followers for that (thankfully) I’ll never have to interact with, where I’ve created a vision board. I’ve designed my own bed from a collection of fortnite designs, which I hope to make next year, I’ve rearranged my furniture, I redid my bathroom myself, and changed up switches and fixtures (please don’t do that unless you have prior electrical experience, though!) I’ve read Amanda Palmer, Jann Arden, and RBG, I decluttered my clothes (and photographed the process, which helped to get rid of things), and I took several online courses, including Indigenous Canada. And did I mention I got a nice raise? I’m dreading the inevitable re-onset of the pressure to be social, but I have enjoyed the ability to quarantine and create that came along with this year. In some ways, I feel, … caught up. Given better world circumstances, I’d say 2020 has been a good year. I still think it has been. Nature has returned. We’ve seen what has happened, and a while lot of other good stuff. But I do understand this year has been a very mixed bag. I’ve just enjoyed creating for myself, and for others. Thank you for this post, too, Chloe! It’s good to feel accomplished! This may have been one of the first list of another person’s that I’ve been able to check ✔️ my way through! Great list! Good ideas for everyone. They are great ideas with which to rebuild and recharge this winter!
