I don’t often do resolutions, but I try to take my physical and mental wellbeing seriously, and the start of a new year’s a great time to reassess and figure out how to tighten things up a bit. Personally, in addition to adding a few more off-drinking days to my usual schedule, I’d also (pandemic willing) like to get back to reconnecting with people through local beer hangouts. I’ve been in my work bunker for the past four+ years, and these last two really haven’t made anything easier in terms of re-engaging. Been working long-ass days trying to get my art stuff off the ground, and it’ll just be nice to continue getting back out into the world a bit more.
So yeah, this year I’d like to get back to reconnecting through beer. I feel like I know myself a bit better now, feel like I’ve made some pretty big personal changes, and kicking back with a few beers and strangers and settling into a conversation sounds like one of the best things ever. Lord knows what the latest variant is going to do to public spaces in 2022, but at least I’d like to get back to hosting more small stuff in the beer garden with our vaccinated peeps. I’m honestly looking forward to whatever shitstorm this upcoming year has in store for us. Whatever you’re working on, I hope you find lots of strength and success with it this year.
