I love writing and saying 2020. TWENTY-TWENTY! Doesn’t it look and sound awesome?
It’s not just the end of the year, it’s the end of a decade, and the end of a major cycle.
We are coming to the end of the Chinese zodiac — the 12-year cycle ends soon (bye, pleasure Pig), and we get to start an entirely new cycle (huzzah, power Rat) next February.
I am excited to start this new year, decade, and cycle, all at the same time.
But before we start a new everything, here’s a round-up of my favourite reads from 2019.
