Entering this year reading André Aciman, Find Me and exiting this year reading Dance!Dance!Dance! by Haruki Murakami (I am still reading it even though I felt like I had been reading this since forever, I really like this book though)
Due to the extensive amount of time we got this year because of the movement control order, I read more than any year before and picked up new skills.
My spotify yearly summary shows that I am still an avid listener of k-pop genre and a new-founded fact of myself is that I am also a faithful listener of modern rock, to which I acknowledge. I will never get tired of the heavy bass sound. I also discovered a lot of new artist this year, be it on the mainstream media or underground/indie. My favorite music video has to be BTS’s latest release track Life Goes On in the music video of Like An Arrow version. The photos in this version of music video reminds me a lot from my favorite album of them.
I am still journalling every now and then, I used to do it everyday, I am doubting my ability of time arrangement, I felt like I am on idle mode all the time but then I can’t spare a good 5 – 10 minutes to clear my head after a long day by writing some words down on a page, I am reflecting myself just like me reading the past log, blogging is a great way too, I am seriously wishing people doing more of blogging in 2021, love to read people’s thought.
Some said passport is the most useless thing in 2020, I agreed to some point. I didn’t go anywhere, not even after the strict movement control order dropped when even government encouraged its citizen to travel within the country, help boosting the economy. The people around me were flying here and there, I expect a huge rises of the confirmed cases a couple weeks down the line. I won’t be complaining about the ban like some of my acquaintence did for first I am not rich and second I am not a person who rely on traveling to “recharge” myself (a spiritual way to describe travel, how funny) and I certainly don’t make money on creating travel content that people loves to watch.
While I am sitting comfortably on my bed thinking and writing this article you are reading it right now from any corner in the world, sitting or lying in a comfortable and safe space, there’s people out there fighting for their life or fighting for other’s life. In my heart, I couldn’t stop expressing my gratitude and appreciation to every tough, kind and considerate soul and felt sorry for those who lost someone in this pandemic.
This year had been one hell of a year. For one side it felt like the last year was a decade away from now but on the other side it felt like this year has never exist though so much has happened and still happening, you got no memory, everything is just blurred, repeated in a loop. This year is over, what would next year hold? I am excited to see what Neil Gaiman’s have to say for this year.
2021, stay safe and healthy everyone, thank you for whoever stop by in the enormous internet and spend some of your time reading what I got to say. Happy happy New Year.
