I decided to be moody today and write a personal blog. It’s been a hell of year, so I thought I would look back on some of the bad and the good.

Here are some of the times I can remember from this year when I cried:
  • That time I became single for the first time in 10 years…
    • At the end of 2019, I decided I wanted to try being single after being in a decade-long relationship. And that hurt everyone.

  • The many times I stopped taking my medication so I could be more authentically angry…
    • I don’t get it either, but I don’t do that anymore.
  • When my trip to Chicago got squashed because we figured out COVID-19 was a thing…
    • That sucked and I laid in bed and sulked about it.
  • When one of my bosses passed away unexpectedly…
    • Appreciate your people while they are here. Everyone has an expiration date.
  • All the anxiety attacks at the beginning of the pandemic…
    • I stayed at home for 16 days straight. Like, I didn’t even go outside. That was pretty dark.

  • When I got my heart broken because mixed signals are a b****…
    • Big yikes.
  • When my dog, Lucy, passed away. She was 14 years old…

    • Now, it’s me and Buddy (her brother and litter mate) against the world.
  • Anytime I remembered that my nephew won’t stop growing up.
    • He’s almost 4 and he’s hilarious.

A lot of good things came out of 2020 though:
  • I listened to a lot of good new music…
    • Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber and everyone else
  • I paid down a lot of student loan debt…
    • HELL YEAH!
  • I got a promotion…
    • They get to put up around here with me full time now!
  • I did a boudoir photo shoot…
    • Because I CAN! No OnlyFans account for me though.
  • I colored my hair purple…
    • I talked about doing it for a loooong time. There’s nothing better than actually following through.

  • I went, like, 6 months STRAIGHT taking my medicine everyday and I’m still going…
    • Take yo’ pills and be nice to yourself if you mess up your streak.
  • I’ve learned a whole lot in my new position…
    • Thank goodness for patient people!
  • I got my mom to watch (and love) The Great British Baking Show on Netflix…
    • She loves Prue and I love Paul.
  • I am now even closer with my sisters than I was before…
    • They learned a lot about me that they didn’t know about me, but then again, so did I.

As much as I want to bury this garbage year… I can’t wait to take what I know now into the New Year! Happy 2021!
