dear 2022, i’m so ready for you. your predecessor, 2021, was pretty gnarly. sure, i learned a ton— i always do— but 2021 taught me even harder lessons. lessons i didn’t think i’d have to face just yet.
when i look back on a year of worldly pain, my heart aches for the death and fear and injustice and confusion. but it also holds onto hope that one day, maybe a long time from now, we will all look back on 2020 as the year when everything changed.
