happy belated new year: looking ahead to twenty twenty-two

Happy belated New Year! I’ve enjoyed having my year off from blogging but I’m ready to open it up again for 2022. I didn’t accomplish anything I set out to do; instead I focused on restoring my health and trying to make the most of life while struggling through another year of pandemic.

I don’t intend to write much this year. Instead, I want to experiment with making videos of some of my travels, focusing on travels since the pandemic began and maybe some of my past travels. If I’m able to travel any this year, I’ll try to make some for those travels as well.

There’s one big caveat. I’ve never made a video before; I’ll have to learn as I go along. Since I don’t actually have much video footage, they’ll be mostly slideshow videos (with photos only) set to music.  I’ll try to take more videos while traveling in the future.  The only writing I’ll do is a list of my “Top 10” for a destination, and maybe a paragraph of highlights. That will be the extent of it.

Mostly, I just want to have fun and challenge myself to learn something new. 🙂

Here are some pages from my 2022 bullet journal where I plot out my year as I’d like it to be.  Who knows if any of it will happen, especially with the pandemic still tearing its way through the world.  We can always hope.

Happy New Year! I wish all of you good health and much happiness in 2022.
