    If anything, 2020 has been the year of disappointment. The year when you found out about some of your closest loved ones (those you always thought were decent kind people), how little they care about fellow human beings. How they'd rather go around potentially contaminating people with a deadly virus than change a single thing about their lifestyle. This doesn't bode well for the fight against climate change, let me tell you.

    It seems everyone hates 2020, but for me it was acutally a pretty good year. Sure the lockdown sucks but before that I was volunteering in Myanmar, I got rid of some nasty habits and build a lot of new, good ones plus made progress on my personal projects and my body. Also we got great new seasons of beloved tv shows, anime, Warzone, Cyberpunk AND we got rid of Don Jon maybe even thanks to Cov. Ill remember it as year that I enjoyed despite all the stress.

    What I will always remember in 2020 - we lost Kobe Bryan, we have corona virus, my brother infected with Covid-19 but thankfully he survived! great fire in Australia killing so many wildlife, we lost Maradona, wearing mask everywhere we go, no more socializing with friends, I forgot how it feels to watch new movies in a cinema theater with friends or families. What else? There are other bunch of stuff... this is the worst year I have ever live in for me, at least for now.
