Yesterday was my birthday and surprisingly, I enjoyed it despite the whole world in quarantine. I think this will go down in ‘one of the best birthdays of all time’ list. Thank you to my best friends Dale and Raveena and my parents who made it joyful!
I am 21. So, a legal adult who will deal with legal repercussions.
Moving on from that, I am now free from my university obligations. I was supposed to be done with my assignments tomorrow. But why stretch it, so I handed over everything the day before my birthday so I can start my life as a 21 year old without stress.
Starting my 21 with joy and the crying mentality that I am becoming older. True definition of growing older, at least to me.
Having completed my assignments, I am now a free bird who no longer carries the weight of her babies.
Now that I am free, I do not know what to do with all this time I have.
Countless tasks and actions come to mind but none seem to want to formulate.
I am trying to finish reading a book, but my mind wanders off to doing something that I don’t even know.
I was learning Japanese back when I was doing my assignments but now that I finished my assignments, learning a new language no longer grabs my attention
I guess I took upon other tasks during my assessment time because I wanted my mind to focus on other things as well.
I think I liked to have my mind engaged with a stressful obligation. The thrill of a deadline, having to complete your final task and finally handing it over. I miss the routine.
Now, I wake up and am in a constant turmoil of figuring out what to do from the limited tasks that I like.
The days have never seemed so long.
I am scouring the internet for games to play to stop the constant nagging of my bored mind. I am trying to finish reading the selfish gene by Richard Dawkins.
I think it’s time to invest in an iPad pro. I am going all out, buying the keyboard and the stick. Thank you, father, for the money you will spend. I am grateful. I look forward to making money in the future.
I also look forward to my times with iPad. I am hoping this will help me with being creative, organized and more productive. You know like those youtubers?
This quarantine has made many people take up many tasks and seeing so many people read so much has made me upset with myself.
I claim that I love reading and I love books but why can’t I find the inspiration or motivation to finish reading a book?
On the other hand, I have been watching an array of movies.
Movies can also be like books, right? The only thing different is that it “is a visual art-form used to simulate experiences that communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty or atmosphere, by the means of recorded or programmed moving images, along with sound other sensory stimulations.”
I can’t wait to see how long I will continue to write my thoughts and what I do every day.
Roshni, at least try doing this. It’s not like you have much to do anyways.
It won’t be that hard to write down your thoughts on paper or in this case, on word on laptop.
How hard is it to come up with new thoughts every day? Not impossible, it can be doable.
I wait for the days when we all will reach a new normal.
See you tomorrow!
