2022, what a year. It seems like it flew by, but maybe that’s because there was so much going on. COVID seemed to dwindle from our daily lives as people slowly returned to normal. It felt weird at times, especially as the pandemic dominated so much for the last couple of years. But I can’t lie, it was refreshing to be able to see people again and return to daily activities like before.

For me personally, there was a lot that made up the year. As I do every year around this time, I want to revisit my year and talk about allllll that happened. From the ups to the downs, to what I’m looking forward to for next year, there’s lots and lots to cover. So let’s get into it! Here we go, y’all…here is my 2022 year in review!

2021…what a year you’ve been. While 2020 was the rollercoaster year where COVID changed our lives, 2021 felt like the year where we began adjusting to a new reality. People were divided, emotions ran high, and there’s still a lot of uncertainty as we go into the new year. If anything, this year felt like a transition year as we try to find our footing. Oh yeah, did I mention that vaccines rolled out this year too?

This year was shaped by many things. From the loss of DMX and Biz Markie, to the rise of Squid Game and Meta, 2021 had its share of big moments. We had a war end, inflation rise, and natural disasters rock the U.S. It was also the year where things began to “open up” again, only for us to go into another uncertain time. I feel exhausted just thinking about it.

There was a lot that made 2021 the year that it was. For me, there were also many things that characterized the year. As I do every year around this time, I want to revisit my year and talk about all that happened. From highlights, to fav things, to 2022 expectations, there’s a lot to cover. So sit back, relax, and let’s get into it. Here is my 2021 year in review!

2020, oh 2020, what a year. Where do I begin to describe this rollercoaster? It really goes without saying, but 2020 was a year unlike any other. I mean, I know we can say that all the time, but this was entirely different. It seemed like every month, there was something else krazy happening, and it was huge. Whether it was the pandemic, the people we lost, or the protests that captured the world, we’ve never seen anything like it. Honestly, it seemed like things would never let up.

In addition, we also experienced an election year. It captivated us, it moved us, and it divided us. It seems like everyone had election fever, as there was a record turnout in the U.S. for voting. But even with the people making their voices heard, there still continues to be unresolved issues. And I mean, what a time for it to be an election year, right? We faced COVID, which shut down the world and changed everything. As the vaccine slowly starts to get distributed, there’s one thing I can tell you…2020 will be one for the history books.

While I could spend all day talking about the events that made up 2020, I won’t. Instead, as I do every time around this year, I want to revisit my year and talk about what characterized it. From highlights, to favorite things, to expectations for the new year, there’s a lot on my mind to share. So sit back, relax, and vibe out with me as I talk about my year in 2020!

“So, hands in the air, let’s hear it for
The start of a brand new America”

– Eminem on “Like Home

It’s been a crazy year, hasn’t it? I’m thinking about the political season of 2020 and how divisive things got. In reality, I feel like it would’ve been even worse if people were going out more. But in a unique year, things played out the way they did. One takeaway I did get from political season 2020 is the importance of unifying…especially with the election behind us.

“Music is reflection of self”
– Eminem on “Sing for the Moment

Do you ever feel like life is so fast paced that it’s hard to catch your breath? Or that there’s so much going on, time passes by very quickly? If so, it might be a good idea to stop and take a time to reflect.
