2021 in Review
I used to do this most years, but got out of the habit. Niki's post reminded me and since I had time, I did it!
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
sister-in-law had a baby boy in September
4. Did anyone close to you die?
my uncle died from covid, and his daughter died three months later (not from covid)
5. What countries did you visit?
6. What would you like to have in 2022 that you lacked in 2021?
7. What date from 2021 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
staying covid-free, I reckon
9. What was your biggest failure?
10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
11. What was the best thing you bought?
12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
14. Where did most of your money go?
15. What did you get excited about?
16. What song(s) will always remind you of 2021?
17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. Happier or sadder?
ii. richer or poorer?
18. What do you wish you’d done more of?
19. What do you wish you’d done less of?
20. How will you be spending Christmas?
We ate lunch next door with Andrew's parents, brother, his wife, and her dad. Later we went to my sister's house to hang out with my family.
21. What was your favorite TV program?
22. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
23. What was the best book you read?
I read over 200 books so it's hard to remember what all I read. I just skimmed through about five or six months of my books and remembered I liked these quite well. But there are others that were really good, too!
24. What was your greatest musical discovery?
25. What did you want and get?
26. What was your favorite film of this year?
27. What did you do on your birthday?
29. What kept you sane?
30. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?
31. What political issue stirred you the most?
probably the January 6th stuff; all of the "Big Lie" talk
32. Who did you miss?
33. Who was the best new person you met?
34. Tell a valuable life lesson you learned in 2021.Not all who claim to be pro-life want to inconvenience themselves enough to protect vulnerable lives, and not all who are pro-choice want to "follow the science" when it comes to abortion. There's a lot of hypocrisy and room for improvement among most all of us, but this topic just stood out to me in 2021.
