As the year unwinds completely before we ramp back up again, I’m in a position to reflect on 2018. This has been an incredible and difficult year, emotionally complicated and full of horrors that I didn’t think humanity was capable of committing.
But concurrently, it has also been an incredibly rewarding year, with more creative accomplishments and output than ever. I had incredible adventures with Marla, who continues to impress and surprise me every day. I challenged myself to do things that scared me and filled me with dread, and I also spent a lot of time hanging out with incredible people who I love dearly.
I lost people who are important. And I met people who are now a good part of my life.
So I don’t know what to make of a year like this. In some ways, it’s been the hardest year. In other ways, the happiest. I feel better off in some ways and behind the 8 Ball in others. I’ve worked on my imperfections more than I was an awful person, which sorta feels like a win. But there is so much about this year that feels awful, it is hard to say this was “good.”
But all that said, this has certainly been a very strange year, and since we live In the future, it is only getting weirder.
But at least it’s getting weirder with all ya’ll, and for that I feel thankful.
Happy Holidays everyone. Let’s do this again next year.
