Last December, we asked whether you thought 2022 would be a better year than 2021.

With over 1,300 votes, 64% of respondents predicted that yes, 2022 would be better. But was it?

After a year that started strong but then saw war in Europe, an economic downturn, devastating storms, a resurgence of flu and RSV, and — most recently — holiday travel woes — we’re wondering how you feel, personally, about the year.

Was it better for you, all things considered, or was it actually worse than 2021? Either way, here’s hoping for a better 2023!
