Reflecting and Reminiscing: 2021

Reflecting and Reminiscing: 2021

2021 started pretty quiet.
Repetitive days were dreary with my own company.
Then, I got vaccinated and life became fast.
Trop vite !



2021. Aging has been my nemesis.
Walk. Yoga. Walk. Yoga. Walk. Yoga.

I did some sewing, embroidery, junk journaling, and crafting.
I continued learning French.
I watched a lot of different comedy podcasts.
I watched an exorbitant amount of Nick Zentner geology lectures.
I listened to an unreasonable amount of Uada.

I got to travel again!

Mexico for my birthday.
Washington State to help my mom out.
Iceland for a music festival.

New York, New Jersey, Maine, and Massachusetts.
Waterfalls, beaches, museums, and volcanoes!
