2020 Year In Review Back to Journal →

Thursday, December 24, 2020

This is my first "year in review" post but I’d love to make it something I can reflect back on for years to come. And what a year to start this idea!

2020 was a year like none other for a majority of the world. COVID-19 took each country by storm and really didn’t relent. What seemed like a ho-hum start to a new year suddenly accelerated aspects of life that were several years away from mass adoption like remote work and teleconferencing.13|SHARE has been doing this for 9 years, but happy the rest of the world is catching up!

It was a year of canceled flights (Seattle, Paris, California, London), closed restaurants, polarized politics to a level previously unseen, and deserted streets. But that paints only the grim side of things.

It was also a year of newfound places and traditions. Some of these include:

I’m thankful for my health, my lovely wife, and my family. I look forward with hope to 2021.
