I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a shit-show. And yet, we also know that 'character is formed in the crucible of life'.

2. I share these challenges with loved ones who prefer details to remain private.
(Note: in 2021 I intend to explore more fully the line between personal info and private info amidst the modern (over)sharing social media influencers. I hope you'll join me.)
