It’s been a while since I haven’t posted here. I feel like I’ve been wasting my space on the internet. I have a couple of content to post soon, but I realized that I need to get this out in the way. This pandemic has been driving us crazy, one way or another.
In the city where I live, it’s been more than 200 days that we’ve been on a community quarantine situation. I don’t know when this will end, to be honest. In the early days of the quarantine, I still feel optimistic. But now, I’m not sure how I feel anymore.
I’m writing this as a check-in for myself. Let me share with you how I feel and where does my mind wanders of these days:
- I think a lot about the past and how I feel that I’ve wasted many good opportunities. This year, I was supposed to travel alone and get myself into driving school in which I’ve postponed a lot in the past years. And now I have to push back on those plans, and the sad thing is that I’ll never know when I’ll be able to do it.
- The pandemic, in general, is a test of everything. It is a test of humanity, patience, and even leadership in communities and organizations. Before, I try to stay away from politics and what I believe in. But this pandemic gave me a whole new different perspective. If we choose better leaders and be collective in all the right values, the world will be a better place to live in.
- I miss being somewhere else. I find myself longing for long walks on the beach or an early morning stroll in the park. I miss being somewhere else, aside from being in front of my desk.
That’s it for now. It’s past 2 AM, and I need to sleep as I have work later. Until then, let’s hope that this will end soon.
