After a long hiatus
Hello everyone (after a long hiatus….if you are still following me)
It has been a long time since my last post. I don’t have anything else to give as an excuse except that I’ve been occupied and whenever I wasn’t I procrastinated to my heart’s content. 😀
Leaving excuses aside, a lot of things have happened over the last year. Primarily I switched companies again. My work-life balance is much better here than previously. But sadly I am not putting my time to use sought to have. So here’s hoping I can slay procrastination at least a few times before I end up losing again.
Losing is inevitable, rising up from the loss, now that requires will power.
2020 as a year is turning out to be difficult for everyone around the world with the Covid-19 pandemic. It is anxiety-inducing and scary at how much things can escalate and get messed up.
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Currently, with how Covid-19 is spanning out, I am under self-imposed quarantine. It has been a week now, and probably for a long time in the unforeseeable future as well(depending on how the situation spans out). As of now my district and a lot of others are under lockdown. Let us see…
Anyway, this is going to be a short post. I just wanted to start somewhere for now. I will hopefully follow through with being more involved this time around. (Not like last year)
A few weeks ago, my blog hosting was about to expire with BlueHost. Since I have not been a regular poster as I intended, I did not want to shell out 10k for hosting renewal. Don’t get me wrong, using BlueHost has been a wonderful experience for me. But at the moment, I am not being regular here, also my expectation of traffic to this page is not high.
Due to all this, after much thought, I decided to switch to Hostinger. They have good plans if you want to think long term. I took up a plan for the next 4 years. There were a lot of pros and cons, but I ended up choosing them for now. Based on how my experience with Hostinger turns out this year as well as my active participation, I’ll see if I am going to switch or not.
Post switching, I have been trying to update my theme, header, etc. Things may still be a bit wonky, so please bear with me.
I had a few thoughts about where I want to take this website. I am unsure at the moment as to how much of these I would carry out. But anyways my plans for the next year include
- Sorting through old posts and making things consistent
- Making a Learning Japanese part for this blog (I am learning Japnese so thought to post whatever helped me)
- Possible guest posts
That’s as far as I have thought of things as of now. Let’s see how this goes.
Keep washing your hands and maintain social distance!
