Using Natural Language Dates
From the command palette, invoke the Natural Language Date feature. Then using text to describe your date. For example:

- Create a folder in .obsidian/plugins
- name the folder what you like. I personally call the folder: obsidian42-jump-to-date
- go to this github link for releases: https://github.com/TfTHacker/obsidian42-jump-to-date/releases/
- For the most current release, expand the assets and download main.js, manifest.js
- copy these 3 files: main.js, styles.css and manifest.json to the folder you created in step 1
- restart obsidian
- Enable plugin in settings > community plugins. Should appear as "Obsidian42 - Jump-to-Date"
