2020, In Retrospect

2020 was a very difficult year for me and for most of us, especially to my friends and fellow colleagues  in Tourism and Hospitality Industry.

The world hit the reset button and for some reasons, it is not showing any signs of progress. Well probably except for the fact that vaccines are slowly rolling out. But with vaccines come new challenges as we all heard from the news. So yes, Earth is really taking its time to heal, or maybe we are just too impatient for everything to go back to what we call “normal.”

As a content creator though, there was no shortage of creativity and social media contents to write and talk about in 2020. Because technically everyone is online due to the pandemic, and thanks goodness wifi and internet exists, events were overcome with online campaigns and collabs. As a content creator, 2020 was awesome in more ways than one.

And so I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to all these amazing brands and the wonderful people behind them for making my 2020 a memorable year.

2020 was not a very bad year after all, although my bank would tell me otherwise, lol! This year, I hope to continue collaborating with these amazing brands and gain new projects, although career wise, I am dedicating myself to earning everything that I have lost last year =)

2021, let’s do this!

♥, JL Arnaiz
