Taking a cue from Jenny Trout’s post on her decade in review, I’m inspired to share my highs and lows. I touched a bit on the blah that still is 2019 in an earlier post, and to be fair the entire decade wasn’t a steaming pile. It’s only felt that way in my head since 2016, when all the cool people died.
Yet, I remain an optimist. I hope the 20s bring peace and prosperity, and solutions to reverse the damage to our planet. I acknowledge I’m facing a number of sunsets in the coming decade, but I can only surge forward with a smile and prayer.
So, the teen years…at least I didn’t have acne this time around. Here’s what happened to me.

Let’s see if I can double everything by 2029…except for the job layoffs and relatives dying.
