This photograph is a good summary of 2021.
I spent every day of the first 5.25 months analyzing data and writing my dissertation. Then the following 3 months, I translated that information into Spanish. This feat would not have been possible without the Lonely Writers Club, a daily online meet-up group I began in December 2020, or my San Pedro sister, T.
From May onward, I started a new journey. Owen and I prepared for our first child, who arrived in January 2022.
In the 9 months before entering the world, we defended a dissertation, interviewed with 6 universities, officiated a wedding, and finally walled (more like waddled) at graduation.
