Time Nicely Wasted: 2021 Recap

Nicely, of us. 2021 is com­ing to an finish and 2022 is quick upon us. Which implies it’s time for a recap submit! 

I want I may say I did a lot of inter­est­ing and enjoyable issues this 12 months. With the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic amongst us, enjoyable and inter­est­ing issues had been few and much between. 

The 12 months begin­ed out nicely.  My half­ner and I cel­e­brat­ed our first anniver­sary. Nabis­co got here out with gluten-free Ore­os in the end! I received to vis­it my fam­i­ly dwelling to assist my par­ent recov­er from an harm. My half­ner and I checked out a bunch of hous­es, made a suggestion on a few and had one settle for­ed! Last­ly, some sta­bil­i­ty for me. 

We moved in togeth­er and issues had been going nicely. We had been hav­ing enjoyable having the ability to see every oth­er on a regular basis, get­ting to indicate the home off to fam­i­ly and buddies, and mak­ing the home our dwelling. I was capable of go see some Automobile­di­nals video games within the transient lull of Covid cas­es ear­ly within the sum­mer. We received our Covid vac­cines and lat­er within the 12 months, our increase­er photographs. I was capable of go to a quilt retreat with my rel­a­tives and work on oth­er hob­bies within the 12 months like stained glass and rely­ed cross sew. I attend­ed EconoMe and was capable of see inter­web buddies in actual life once more!

Some­the place alongside the way in which, all of it went facet­methods. Covid cas­es got here roar­ing again which meant few activ­i­ties out­facet the home. Work kicked into excessive gear as we scram­bled to order sup­plies and prepared each­one for the return to the construct­ing. I was pressured to return into the workplace a few days a week. Issues with my half­ner fal­tered after which fell aside com­plete­ly. We finish­ed up not mak­ing it to our sec­ond anniversary. 

So, as soon as once more, I pack up my life and transfer on. I suppose we are going to each be wager­ter off in the long term and I want him noth­ing however one of the best. I imagine each­one deserves to be with a half­ner that provides to their life. Covid each helped and hin­dered our relationship. 

I’m a lot unhappy we may­n’t make it work and that I’ll be begin­ing over once more on the age of 31. However now that I not need to have bio­log­i­cal chil­dren of my very own (due to my ADHD and to cli­mate change), I discover I not really feel the pres­positive of a clock to have a half­ner and cre­ate a fam­i­ly. It’s incred­i­bly liberating. 

The title of this submit is “Time Nicely Wast­ed” which is a music by Brad Pais­ley. Nei­ther of us wast­ed the oth­er’s time because it’s a glob­al pani­ni. It’s fairly arduous to this point in a pan­dem­ic, so if we had bro­ken up ear­li­er likelihood is excessive nei­ther of us would’ve gone on to this point oth­ers immediately. We had a good time togeth­er even when we did­n’t work out as a couple. 

However what about that massive, awe­some home you acquire togeth­er!?” Nicely, once we purchased the home we signed an agree­ment that within the occasion of a breakup, he may purchase me out, I may purchase him out, or we may promote and break up the prof­it primarily based on how a lot we each had put in. I don’t need to purchase him out (nor do I have the money) so he’s going to be purchase­ing me out both by way of a refi­nance or a mortgage assump­tion. If each­factor goes as deliberate, which means I can have about $10,000 com­ing my approach on the very least, which will probably be good to have. 

This time, I don’t want to maneuver to anoth­er state and/or discover a job. I’m keep­ing in St Louis at my job, so I will probably be mov­ing right into a candy bach­e­lorette con­do in down­city St Louis. This can elim­i­nate my com­mute and put me clos­er to all of the enjoyable issues St Louis has to supply! I’m very excit­ed to be again in an space that’s stroll­a­ble and never so automobile depen­dent. 2022 will probably be a nice 12 months to get in contact with myself once more and fig­ure out what I need my life to appear to be. Ought to Covid actu­al­ly sub­facet and permit us to dwell our lives once more, I’ll be capable of do enjoyable issues like communicate on the Chau­tauqua in Ecuador, attend a Col­bie Cail­lat con­cert, the entire Blues and Automobile­di­nals video games, and possibly even trav­el to vis­it buddies once more. There’s a ebook­retailer in Nashville name­ing my title! 

I hope your 2021 deal with­ed you nicely, and that your 2022 is your greatest 12 months but. Hap­py new 12 months, buddies!


Thanks for learn­ing! Do you might have any massive objectives or plans for the brand new 12 months?
