It’s a little wild to think we’re already in 2022. And that we’re five days in. To me, at least, the last couple of years have been a bit of a blur. There are times where it feels like just yesterday, the world shut down rather unexpectedly. We were all left to learn how to work from home without losing our minds.
There are days where I question how successful I was in that particular endeavour!
I know some places have returned to normal, but in Canada at least, we’re still in the deepest throes of the pandemic. Even with the prospect of that being the case for the unforeseeable future, I think 2022 will be a good year.
This is a big year, at least for me!
I know I’ve never really talked too much about age here on my blog, but this is my year of being 30. And if I learned anything from 13 Going on 30, it’s that this is the year I should probably have been looking forward to my whole life.
It feels like a new chapter, though I still get the occasional ID check at liquor stores (legal age is 19 here) and there are times I forget I’m 30.
But I forget everything, so that’s not much of a surprise.
It’s also my first year of being legally married, and just this week I’ve been going through the process of getting my last name changed. I’m still hoping that at some point this year, we’ll be able to take a honeymoon to some beautiful beach where we don’t have to do anything but relax!
I've set some new personal goals.
Is it really a new year if you don’t set a resolution for yourself?
I’ll admit I’m not the best at keeping my resolutions, but this year, I’d like to do things differently. I’ve set some pretty big goals for myself in terms of both my mental and physical health, and I’m feeling pretty stubborn!
After all, nothing will change if I don’t actively work at it, and I’ve been feeling in need of some change for a while now.
And I've got some new (semi-)professional goals!
Just a sidebar here, I only say “semi-” because it’s all for my blog!
I’ve got all kinds of new ideas that I’m excited to work on this year, and I’m determined to bring them to life. No more procrastinating.
First of all, I’m hoping to do a lot more with YouTube and Pinterest, because last year showed me just how much people love those platforms. I’ve got quite a few ideas to build out some tips and tricks videos for FFXIV housing, and I’ve been working on new builds to share, too.
I also just got my first offer for a design-focused placement, so we’ll see how that plays out!
What are you excited for in 2022?
