102. Twenty-Twenty-One

Dear readers,

I have been someone who likes consistency. And yet somehow, I’ve never had the urge to sit down and write- in God knows how long. I always have this “aha” moments where I want to experiment with the blog and do different things. I have tried to tell everyone I know and on the blog that I will try to be consistent with blogging. But, I always slack off because all the “drafts” I have written since I stopped blogging, I have disliked and not really felt like it was good enough to be posted.

And, I am not trying to make excuses here, but I have been in a very negative space for quite some while now. But that’s okay. Looking back at how my life was in 2020 and especially since I stopped blogging- I have learnt so so much. So, that is the silver lining.

Back to- HOW IS IT 2021 already? But I like that it’s 2021. It gives me a mental push that I need to restart and rejuvenate. I guess I should have started with wish you all. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! Let’s all have a great year.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not dismissing the lockdown or the pandemic or the virus. I hope all of you are safe and well and healthy. But, I also don’t want to talk about it- because that’s all I spoke about in the last few months of my life and I kinda want this blog to reflect a fresh start mentally.

I’m not going to predict how 2021 is going to be. But I am putting this out there- that I feel good about this year. It’s the new year. We’re just a few days into the new year and I feel good about it. I feel happy and I’m going to take full advantage of the fact that I am happy.

This year, I will graduate again and I will be done with my Masters. I will be 23- which they say is a new phase of your adult life. I will have gotten started with what the future holds for me. Whether it’s a job or an MPhil. Whatever. I’m not predicted/hoping for anything apart from it being a good year filled with a lot more fun and getting out of comfort zones. A lot more learning from good and bad life experiences. A lot less overthinking as well, please. And A LOT MORE living in the moment. And a lot of reading, blogging and traveling please.

My podcast with my friend is going well. I like that we are on the same page on a lot of admin decisions. I like that we have that compatibility. If you haven’t heard out podcast- please search for The Worth Of Our Opinion on your favourite podcast streaming platform. An added incentive would be that you will finally hear my voice and it might be completely different that you imagined it would be.

Since I have been inactive for quite some while now, it seems like people would have forgotten about me and the blog RB. But that’s okay. I intend to get back to writing as often as I used to.

Happy new year once again everybody!

Loads of love and regards,
Realistic Beginner.

    First of all let me say, welcome back! It is always a pleasure reading your posts and I look forward to the next one! Second of all all the best for your masters! that’s so exciting and you will probably be very busy and productive this year which is a great thing in recent times. 😀 Third of all you said exactly what I do as well, that you don’t publish as much after feeling the drafts are not good enough… But like I tell myself, we can always publish it then edit/ restructure afterwards if we think it doesn’t look good. But funnily enough, after seeing it published I realize it doesn’t seem as bad as I originally thought! Good luck on everything and keep writing whenever you get a chance because I think it will help reduce your study stress! 🙂 🙂
