We all know what kind of year 2020 was. Despite all that, I wanted to write a 2020 recap and share the positive things I enjoyed and learned during the last year. Maybe it’s a controversial opinion, but my perception of 2020 was a positive one. It wasn’t really eventful compared to all of the other years, but I managed to work on a lot of boring tasks. And I didn’t experience the usual overwhelming fear of missing out. 2020 was the year I didn’t want but needed desperately. Here is a list of things that made my 2020 awesome!

When we were kids, the world seemed so wast. Our dreams could take us everywhere and our minds felt truly open. We would do what we wanted, not bounded by fears, the judgment of other people, or society. As we grow up, we are getting shaped by the environment. We learn how we are supposed to behave and that life is not all about the fun, but about the tedious tasks, our parents or teachers order us to do. I remember how I hated the fact that I had to listen to other people telling me what to do and how I wished for me to grow up fast. In my young mind, I had this vision of freedom, that when I finally grow up I don’t have to listen to other people’s shit anymore.
