“The year is almost over!”

For many, 2021 will ring in these words like never before, as the entire world is ready for a fresh start that is very different from 2020. Who would’ve thought a pandemic would overtake millions, leave countless without jobs, and dictate political policies? We quickly found out that a seemingly harmless virus from overseas would become a super-spreader sickness in the States. I thought 2020 was supposed to be the start of the “second roaring 20s” that would bring back 1920s-style parties and classic Hollywood themes – I couldn’t have been more wrong! Read More
