Where to start…?

2020 - the rise of the pandemic

2020 saw the whole planet have to deal with Covid19 which impacted almost every sector possible, leaving Tech being one of the few with the least amount of impact.

Needless to say I was far far too optimistic about how it would pan out and 2020 was pretty much one of the worst years of my life, & I’ve have some pretty bad ones.

I don’t remember much from 2020 other than hating where I lived and that I somehow managed to survive it all, which really is all that matters.

2021 - the continuation of the pandemic

2021 however was very different in that I applied and was accepted to join St John Ambulance as a volunteer vaccinator, which I can say was perhaps on of the most important changes I made to my life other than finally moving at the end of September 2021.

I’m glad 2021 is now over, especially after a rough end to it and I’m looking forward to seeing all the fun that may come around in 2022.
