I have a friend who I know through a friend who is high in the scientifical research foodchain. When he says stuff regarding the covid situation I usually take this as a high valued opinion. Not like the ones other people refer to as a source because they have read it 'somewhere.' Currently you can read anything anywhere, as I was writing before earlier in the week.
My friend claims we will all be drinking beers together again by next Summer. I don't know what information he bases his ideas on, but it is based on something for sure. Although I want nothing more than this to be true, I remain sceptical and don't want my hopes to get up too high on this.
Even though this year doesn't feel like a waste at all and for luckily a lot of good stuff happened this isn't the same for everyone. I see some people around me suffering and sliding away in the situation, and I think going into all of these extremes isn't a good thing for anyone at all.
The world wants this to be over. Not only because of the tremendous loss of life (numbers aren't everything as said, but seeing what happens around you is) but also because of the economical, political and mental stability of everyone.
Even I feel like I am trying to think of alternative ways of making some bucks while sitting at home so such, even though I still have my hospital job which takes enough of my time in general.
For some reason Instagram has caught my eye for this, and the monetisation on Youtube as well. Again this is also totally crazy as well, because I think that currently with blogging in crypto space there is plenty of room for eventually making very decent amounts.
But it feels more like I want to do something usefull with my time while we are here. In previous years going towards the winter I would start running and training by now to check how my legs are doing and if I am ready for the skiing season.
I honestly question is there will be any room for skiing this season, and the second question is if you should want it. My Curacao experience told me that I felt really safe while being there because of the amount of stuff you do outdoors. This is a bit different with skiing ofcourse because of time spending in lift going up with people who are also catching their breaths.
If you ask me, it should be a 1 household per cart kind of story, but I don't know if this will be happening. After all...In the airplanes it was also packed..and I mean packed, which also didn't feel the safest of all, but revenue before anything else you know.
New Hobby? Music!
So I have started focussing on a new hobby here in the house which is doable as long as we are locked up here. It will require learning music, so I am dedicating my time at the moment learning how to read chords, notes, sharps and flats and training my brain in it.
And it is exhausting! Just like learning a new language, the practise drains mental energy and honestly...it feels good ;)
I thought about dedicating some blogs and maybe videos on it, but untill now..it feels to embarrasing even. So up until the next phase where I actually physically play an instrument, I will stick to my theoretics and bother no one with it.
The rest will follow later. I got this winter covered!
