2020 – A Year’s Worth of Rumination

Coming into 2020, I had recently moved back to Chicago from Asia and despite not knowing where the future would take me, I sensed that 2020 would be one for the history books.

With a little Christmas wine in my system, the 2020 Reflection project was born. On the last day of every month this year, I’m journaling about not only what happened that day, but also where I’m at in my headspace in terms of emotions, goals, and anything else. This project is also meant to highlight the collective narrative of multiple people experiencing 2020, so I’ve invited a group of friends to join me in reflection.


The current group stands at nine currently including me:

Name Location
Nathan (NS)Chicago, IL
Emily (E)Korea/U.S.
Nicole (N)Chicago, IL
Amanda (A)Washington, D.C.
Gigi (G)New York City, NY
Jordan (J)MN/Chicago, IL
Paige (P)Korea
Kyle (K)Korea
WB (W)Washington, D.C.

Follow along with our 2020 reflections and get to know our stories and how they may be similar or differ from your own. There’s a lot of empowerment in deliberate and (especially) shared reflection, so please leave a comment about how 2020 is treating you so far! 2020 has already proven to be one for the history books and I’m sure there will be many more surprising twists and turns before it ends.
