Bring it on 2022!

1:42 pm | Saturday, January 22nd, 2022

Yes, the pandemic is still going on, and the first month of the year has been challenging but 2022 is also giving us a lot of things to look forward to. The new content that’s coming can help alleviate our anxiety and give us options for escape. Even better, there are more books, music, movies and shows, among others, available now and the quality is top-notch. The long-delayed projects are here now, together with brand new ones. There are big events, too, to watch out for (but is there anything bigger than the presidential elections?). It is truly safe to say that 2022 offers something for everyone.
