2020 was a hell of a year. Let’s take a look at the things that kept us going through elections, a pandemic, and at-home haircuts.
Big Family Zoom Calls
“That time when one of your bestest partners lined up Danielle Ponder to sing, perform, and talk about Intersectionality to their entire staff, via Zoom. Gestures like this have meant a lot during a really isolating year for us all. Seeing the families and kids smiling and jamming out to Danielle’s performance reminded me of the days that will come again, if we can all stay patient a bit longer.” –Lisa Kribs, Founding Partner
“There is something lovely about the practice of getting into a puzzle, a pastime I have found a love for in 2020. You are taking part in a creative work of art while letting your mind wander to wherever it needs to be that day. A lot of things felt out of place this year and forced us to be still; looking forward to seeing how we piece our world back together in 2021.” –Kristina Button, Content Creator
My Trusty Sneakers
“2020 was a year – it had the good, the bad, and the ugly. For me, one thing that symbolizes the year for me was my trusty old kicks that ran over 400 miles. Call it what you want – exercise, meditation, therapy. These kicks carried me through 2020.” –Shelly Thomas, Engagement Lead
Hair Cutting Scissors
“I’m no sociologist, but I’m willing to bet that 2020 saw more at-home haircuts in the US than any year in recent history. Many used to keeping it up to the professionals were forced to either embrace the mullet or take a risk in their bathroom mirror. I personally find cutting my hair to be empowering, and allows me to fully focus on self-care for a moment. I wonder if those doing it for the first time this year were pleasantly surprised by a similar feeling.” –Courtney Brown, Creative Lead
