All in all, it was kind of shitty.
Blah blah Covid. Blah Blah lockdown. Blah blah no toilet paper. Blah blah total disruption to daily life. Yadda yadda yadda.
But, we persevered didn’t we?
Only my life wasn’t crazy disrupted in the grand scheme of things. I never got to work from home, and I didn’t lose my job so daily life stayed semi-constant. I guess I was pretty lucky in that regard. I didn’t have concert band though. Chorus went virtual. No gym until I was vaccinated. Etc.
I did really pretty decent on my resolutions. I helped mom through her knee surgery. I found a new job. I increased my savings. I got vaccinated (and boosted) as soon as I could and managed to avoid Covid. I successfully managed virtual rehearsals and concerts with the chorus. I built my Bianchi bike. I got serious about my fitness and weight loss- so I’m now at a weight where I’m fairly happy.
And while my new job kinda sucks, it’s still better than my last job. Plus? My old company was just sold and my guess is that the plant will be closed and the land sold within the year (as its prime real estate).
Chorus and band both started up again this fall and had successful concerts, so that’s good. And I’ve been able to get back to the gym. And I biked a lot.
For next year, my new goals include maintaining my health gains, Finding another new job, and perhaps going on a vacation or two. And making sure mom is still doing ok.
So, bye bye 2021. Don’t let the door hit ya. And here’s to a better 2022 for all of us.
Clearly your old job couldn’t handle you leaving, and had no choice but to sell.
