If I take down covid from the list, 2020 wasn’t that bad for me. In fact it was quite a good journey. Not a “great one” though.
Started to believe more on my intuitions.
Now, I wouldn’t advice just anyone to do this but if you have a weak internet signal and if YouTube crashes or your recipe is not loading at the right time, you’ve got no choices, have you?
I learnt Spanish.
That’s half truth, to be honest. I did learn a few basic stuff, or rather should I say brushed a few things that I had learnt years back (which I had no memory of) and a bit more. But it was fun, until the app crashed and I uninstalled it. But still, I know Spanish! I will just put it like that, for the sake of it.
Realised that I was literally living in junk!
It’s crazy. How could I not see the cobweb (perhaps older than me) just above my head in my room? I seriously doubt if anyone has checked the sides of your couch. If not, I wouldn’t suggest you to do it. Please do not.
Classics are not that bad!
Started off with Jane Eyre and ended with Tess of the d’Urbervilles, I must say, though you will take a century to read the whole book, it is worth it. The lockdown wasn’t going to end anytime soon then too, which made it all perfect!
Turns out, my family is a whole lotta bigger than I knew!
The zoom nearly crashed, and all of my relatives were speaking all at a single time, I realised the other side of fun. The happiness that you experience while realising that not only you, but the whole family is as insane as you are, is so satisfying! You get to know more on genetics too!
It’s good to taste everything (only a bite is encouraged though) that passes along your path.
Depression, loneliness, isolation, desperation and much more is not something that one welcomes,but once it comes to you, you are the one who decides if you want them to stay or not. At least you can try, I believe. I tasted them all, a bit, and in no time I found a way to untie the killing rope tied around me!
Started to understand, that utensils play a big role in turning my life to a boring one. Total chaos!
I ain’t lying! Utensils are sometimes, the worst sort of objects you could ever find!
But I did love my own time in the kitchen.
Well let me be honest here, the first time I baked cookies, it turned out to be a total failure. Pathetic it was. But mind you, the second time, I was careful. I bought some measuring cups and stuff (and realised that didn’t help because measuring stuff wasn’t my thing) and finally served the cookies. When you get something right when you least expect them to be, there’s an extra cup of joy, isn’t it? I felt like that. The cookies turned out to be perfect. And I learnt not to raise expectations. Ever.
And finally. I got my “me-time”
It is important. To spare sometime to look at yourself. Have a little date with yourself. Or at least, have fun by yourself.. doing all the things that you love. I am grateful to myself for that. I’ve had a nice date with myself. And for the first time in several years, I realised that you won’t always feel lonely when you are alone!
And if you are wondering why I’m posting a random thing on 2020 when we all are almost six months into 2021.. I already told ya… I’m insane!
