Update

It's been a year since the whole lockdown thing. Sadly, things aren't back to near normal levels.

I'm tired. In fact, I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? I hope there is.

2020: A (Not-So-Great) Year in Review

There is no doubt in my mind that 2020 is the worst and most challenging year I've ever faced.

I didn't get to travel overseas this year. Unfortunate, but not completely surprising.

Still, there have been some good news.

2020 is the year when I was able to accomplish a lot. I got a promotion this year, bought a handheld gaming console before the start of the pandemic, purchased an awesome working and gaming laptop and managed to save a lot of money. 

Working from home from mid-March to December has taught me one thing: Remote working is possible. The traditional office setup still has a place, although frankly I don't want to come back there until we're in the clear.

I do hope that things get better this coming 2021. I wanna get back to traveling internationally soon.

Okay, that's all for now.

More of a Silent Night than a Merry Christmas

People today will be celebrating the holidays in a subdued manner.

Going out on the streets, meeting and hugging friends and family and just being plain festive and merry aren't on the table. Being completely okay with what's going on isn't possible at this point.

But if there's any consolation to what's happening, people can still meet up virtually (Zoom, Facebook, etc.) Still, things won't be the same.

2020 still feels pretty surreal to me. It feels like a worldwide "go to your room and think about what you've done" scenario. While we're in that metaphorical room, people suffer and die from the dreaded covid.

Are things going to be better when Christmas Day arrives? I doubt it. But what I do know is this: 

I'm going to keep fighting. 

I'm going to keep bouncing back.

I'm here to stay even if the world around me grinds to a screeching halt.  

I'm here to win. So that one day, when this whole pandemic blows over, I'll see people out on the streets, being merry and festive and not have to worry about physical distancing. A guy can dream, you know.

That's all for now.

Update

 Is 2020 over yet?

I've asked this question in my previous post. Now, I'm asking it again.

This year has to be the worst — not just for me, but also for a lot of people. Not a good way to start a decade at all.

But I'm hoping that things will improve. I really hope it does.

Is 2020 Over Yet?

Is this year over yet? Because I want it to be over.

I want to skip to 2021 and just be done with what's going on.

July will come in a few days, and all I can say is that the first half of the year isn't okay. It's FAR from okay.

I hope that things get better when the second half of the year rolls in.

Anyway, that's all for now. Stay alive, everyone.

A Long January

Volcano.
Virus.
Vryant (it's actually Bryant, but you get the picture).

January 2020, for me, has to be one of the longest months I've ever experienced in my life. There are so many things happening in this month. It honestly feels like the middle or end of the year already.

2019: The Year of (Expensive) Travel

2019, is without a doubt, my most expensive year. I made three international trips this year (Japan in Spring, the United States in Autumn, and Japan in Winter), which is incredibly costly. If there's any consolation to it, two of these trips are worth it.

Apart from being expensive, 2019 is generally a good year for me. Yeah, there were some hiccups, but most of the time it was pretty okay. I got to visit great places outside the country.

That's all for 2019. Hope everyone will have a great new year (and decade).
