It’s 2020 bitches. Here I come…

Last week I took some time to think and did some writing on how 2019 went for me in a few important areas. Here are a few of them: Friends, Writing, Reading, Outdoors, Money, and Health.

FRIENDS

2019 Friends: So this was interesting. I had a couple of friends my age who helped me find my loft, encouraged me to start grad school and then when I moved they just disappeared. I texted a bunch to hang out in that first two months after moving and it just wasn’t happening so I stopped asking. I still see them on occasion, maybe every two months or so, but it isn’t the same. I don’t know what happened.

I have some millennial friends who are there for me sometimes and sometimes not at all, as in just answer a text already, as in leaving me hanging at a Christmas PopUp bar by myself (which I’m a big girl and can handle but it’s not nice). Now there is one who is faithful AF at my work. I don’t know what I’d do without her. There’s another co-worker who is awesome but super busy and I wish we could hang out more. And one more who does do some weekend stuff with me. Hey I’m an extrovert lol. I love to do stuff. The very best thing that happened in 2019 is my gay bestie. We’ve talked so many hours about our lives, he listens and gives great advice. The nights out with him are the most fun I had last year. We are so compatible and have the best times together. I asked him if he wants to share a house when our leases are up. Either way I’m so thankful for his friendship.

2020 Friends: My goal is to have a tribe of women by the end of the year. To accomplish this I’m starting a bookclub for Women Who Run With the Wolves. I created the Meetup and put it up and have 16 members in 24 hours! I’ll keep you posted!

Writing: This was great last year and I just want to keep going. I have literally fallen in love with writing and know that I will do it the rest of my life and it is becoming my favorite activity.

Reading: I missed reading last year. I am a reader, a voracious reader. I started grad school and was on goddamn dating apps and Instagram and TikTok too much. I deleted TikTok, idiotic app and I’m only getting on Instagram for 20 minutes. I allow myself to just lounge and read. I’ve read two books already the last two weeks, The Institute by Stephen King and Incendiary by Chris Cleave. I’m now reading Pussy: A Reclamation and will have some posts about it.

Outdoors: I only went on one hike last year. I haven’t camped in years, never by myself or with women. This is changing this year. I did bike, some. I’m hiking and camping and kayaking and wandering. I miss it.

Money: I borrowed so much money last year just to make it through each month. It is out of control. I was living way beyond my means. I’m not buying expensive stuff but my rent is too high, I’m still helping two of my adult children with a bill each (phone/car insurance). I ate out too much. I’m paying for past loans each month. I’m going to look for a more affordable place to live. I’m eating at home more. And I’m giving the kiddoes a head’s up that I can’t do the bill thing anymore. My goal for 2020 is to learn to live on what I make. Then I will work on saving and paying off the credit card, then student loans.

Health: I ate healthier last year than I have since I was a kid. I have found a way of eating that makes me feel good and I have energy. It’s lazy keto. For 2020 I want to move my body more through yoga, dance, biking, running, and walking. I also want to learn meditation.

I’m so excited for this year. I will continue the #yearofsluttery and pay attention to what I feel. Thanks for reading!
