I never thought I would rescind my decision not to write a year-in-review till I read trevenue44‘s post on Hashnode.

Writing a year-in-review post can be a daunting task, especially when you want to capture the essence of the past 365 days in just a few paragraphs. It’s like trying to fit the entire universe into a tiny box, a box that can barely contain a single thought, let alone a year’s worth of memories, experiences, and emotions.

Yet, as I sit down to write my own year-in-review post, I am filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation. It’s a chance to reflect on the highs and lows, the triumphs and tribulations, and everything in between. It’s a chance to celebrate the moments that made me feel alive and to learn from the moments that left me feeling lost.
