2021 was a bizzare year (to say the least). I managed to make myself slightly less stupid as a person. With school becoming more taxing amongst other things, I've had less time to code and contribute to open-source. With that to say, I'd like to express my gratitude all the people who've helped me get here. Thank you!
Wishing everyone the best of luck for 2022! Cheers 🍻
