Aren’t we all glad that 2020 is finally coming to an end? From the pandemic to forest fires to all the politics, it’s been nothing short of something straight out of American horror story. (Any AHS fans out here?)
On the other hand we did get to have a LOT of free times on our hands. Rest assured that I would never want that again. I am positive that I would never ask for a leave from class. (I’ve learnt my lesson God, I do not want a 6 month vacation twice a year!)
So this is me talking about the highs and lows of 2020
First thing that I would like to mention would of course be the deaths of loved ones. And what the virus took from us. People, freedom, the “normal” and so much more.
The low: I entered into the final year of college right when the lockdown was announced. It was pretty upsetting to think that I would be spending the last year of my college life at home, staring at a screen and doing assignments and exams from home. (Not that I complain about writing exams from home lol)
The high: With so much time in my hands, I’m glad I decided to give blogging a shot. (To be honest this isn’t my first attempt at it though) and I’m happy that I chose to blog! I must admit I haven’t been the most consistent blogger out there, but the growth had its ups and downs. And I loved writing which kept me busy.
The low: (or high?) This year also was one hell of a rollercoaster ride from the beginning. We all chose to look after mental health a little more seriously. Not only were we locked inside our homes but also our minds. I felt anxious because of overthinking, and I’m sure most of you must have felt a “low” like this. But we survived it and we made it to the end! That’s what matters.
The high: Finally decided to keep a journal. Helped me get a clear head. I also keep a memories journal, to write all the happy memories and to look back at them.
The low: The separation from friends was also one of the worst things. Not being able to see them everyday sucked.
Ending this post on a positive note, here’s to a better new year and lots of happy memories!
I encourage you all to share your highs and lows of 2020!
Thanks for reading!
