Reflecting on 2020

2020 made out of black construction paper

Normally, I post a year end recap of what work, projects, and writing I’ve done in the past year. I’ve decided against doing that this year.

I’ve done things that are worth talking about and I’m working on projects that I’m excited about. But 2020 has been hard. The last thing we need right now is an emphasis on productivity and accomplishment.

We need to prioritize wellness, not production. If you survived 2020 that counts. You occasionally put on pants that counts too.

I want to recognize the privilege I hold as a white settler, as someone who has stable housing, and someone who’s job and wage wasn’t impacted by COVID-19. I’ve only been able to engage in so much work this year because of all of the secure position I’m in.

This year has highlighted how important community care and mutual aid can be. I incredible grateful for my support networks, friends, and colleagues who have helped me through this year.

See you in 2021 friends.
