I obviously haven’t written in a while (duh)… but I have my reasons.
Obviously the first reason is the fact that it’s 2020. I’m quite positive that I’m not alone in feeling that year has been one of the worst we’ve seen in recent history… It started with a volcano spewing ash, to this horrible pandemic that has killed about 1.7 million people (as of writing), crippled economies (deliberately or otherwise… Thanks, alcohol ban), uncovered just how ill-prepared several governments are on how to respond to a crisis on a scale like this, and even exposed the level of selfishness, callousness, apathy, and violence several people are capable of having.
All these reasons have effectively turned me off from writing anything down and immortalizing 2020 – complete with corresponding time/date stamps – on my site.
Then I realized, it’s not fair to simply write 2020 off as the fiery ball of crap (#notsorry) that it has become… because for me, it has been a year of discovery.
