2021 Retrospective

Looking back, 2021 was a year to last a decade.

Had lots of plans, expectations for the time. Where did it all land?


Came back better than ever. Not to say the city didn’t bring its own challenges, I closed many doors, but opened many, many more.

(Must admit I didn’t spend all my time in Las Vegas – the time away was nonetheless welcome!)


Three for three 😎

Since plenty of folks still have not done their patriotic and humane duty, the pandemic continues to rage πŸ”₯


How the could anyone have expected the treason of January 6th? Its first anniversary we had yesterday by the time this blog goes out!??

Anyway, not a smooth start in the least. Crossing fingers for more of many things in 2022 🀞


I wrote blogs πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Wrote some games too (not half bad, mind you).

No outright traditional fiction though. Do not know when that will come again by itself, as I have taken a fancy to writing roleplaying games now πŸ˜‰

Voice Acting

Got nada. Told plenty of times I had radio voice, an announcer’s intonation. Went nowhere with it.


I got some games in! Not a lot – Prey, Witcher 3, some Halo, a single tabletop game of what I am calling BITS of Mork Borg, and now Battletech.

Relaxation and recreation is now scheduled into my TODOs -> 4 tasks, then a level or hour of a game or other entertainment. 3 tasks on weekends πŸ˜‰ Keeping this up in the new year here!


Financial Independence. The elephant in every room of my life. The keystone to just about everything I do.

2021 has been good to me towards this end. Updated calculations also moved up my RE (Retire Early whenever) by years.

Despite a lot of frustration at some of the things I found myself doing, the work only solidified how ready I am for getting out of the rat race. Must recommend you get into FIRE yesterday, though today is not too late πŸ™‚

Everything Else

Met some amazing (=amazing=) people I could not have anticipated in my wildest scenarios. The great folks I already know have positive and major life changes going into 2022 that I couldn’t be happier for. These people I cannot cherish enough ❀

Skydived (skydove?). Practiced firearms training and shooting. … These fancies were itches I thought I wanted to scratch. What I needed was progress on my BITS games, relationships, and ~chill~.

The more you know 😁

2021’s retrospective does little for how long and chock-full of experience the year really was. Tell me – how did you fare?

See you in 2022, all. Cheers ~
