Was 2021 a good year for you?
I wouldn’t call it good, but not terrible either. About the same it’s been for several years now.
What did you do in 2021 that you’d never done before?
Started a biologic for migraine. Three days before the year end, but it counts!
Did you meet any of your hopes/goals for the last year?
Spent a lot of the year on long sick leave – that was both a hope and a goal. Because it’s mentally better than being unemployed while knowing I am not able to work even if I got a job.
Hopes or goals for the next year?
I hope the migraine biologic works for me and is effective against my migraines. We should see in about 3 months the latest!
Did anyone close to you give birth?
Did anyone close to you die?
What countries did you visit?
What would you like to have in 2022 that you lacked in 2021?
Money. Covid-19 to run its course and go into being not a problem. More energy and so more creativity both for online activities and offline ones.
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
What was your biggest failure?
There’s nothing this year that I see as a failure. I did the best I could with what I got.
Did you suffer any illness or injury?
Nothing new – just all the old chronic ones. My left arm pain that I had been having for about 1,5 years got worse towards the autumn, and in December I had an ultrasound and X-ray on it, waiting to officially hear the results from my doctor and what to do about the problem, but I already know there’s apparently a rather large calcium deposit in the tendon of my left shoulder.
What was the best thing you bought?
Nothing specific comes to mind, but I have greatly enjoyed the various fountain pen ink samples and MU print on stickers I bought last year!
Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
The Finnish political party Perussuomalaiset is always embarrasing and shame inducing.
Whose behaviour merited celebration?
Our Prime Minister Sanna Marin and her government.
Where did most of your money go?
Rent and food.
What did you get really, really excited about?
What songs will always remind you of 2020?
