I was looking back on something I read recently about the pandemic and asked myself to remove the pandemic and see the behaviors that I had added or ways that I had changed throughout the year:

Stopped eating while seated at restaurants and bars

Started long distance running

Started keto

Started a best practices journal

Were it not for the pandemic, I would not have gotten to stop eating at restaurants and bars, so I am grateful for this year. I ate so many dollars. It was wasteful. Sometimes we would go out every night for months at a time, and sometimes were hemorrhaging funds, but not anymore. At times, I have not seen the good things in this year, but now I think I am coming around to see the benefit of these times. One goal I had for myself this year is to make a new friend. Although I admitted at a recent work meeting that I hadn’t, someone pointed out that I actually have made a new friend, a co-worker. I’m always skeptical about the term friends. What does it even mean to be a friend? That’s probably why I don’t have a lot of friends. I take the win of a new friend.

Hello, my name is Hilary, and I often find myself wondering about the many mysteries of life. Life can be more productive and fun when I step back and interpret it as infinite refactoring for discovery and enjoyment. That being said, I enjoy learning about the existential crises of others and the creative strategies people use to achieve goals through barriers, challenges, and obstacles.
