I had made some big plans for the ongoing semester at college and also for the upcoming summer vacation - my first in college. By big, I mean - reading big books and learning more stuff. And then the whole of India went under lockdown with most of the world during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And with that my plans went dead too. The only thing I have been able to get myself so far to do staying home is to sleep around 10 pm and wake up at 4 am.
Of course, it does not happen every day. In my three weeks of trying this out, I have not had a streak of more than three days. And here are the reasons why:
- Unwanted tension (the one I should let go of)
- Listening to podcasts
- Reading books
- Writing notes
- Watching Numberphile and BBC Earth videos on YouTube
- Texting friends
- Reading newsletters
Day one of one hundred.
