    2020: A Year In Review 

    Hello!

    Alright!
    Let’s get started!

    Today is the last day of 2020.
    It’s been a bumpy ride, to say the least.

    Looking back at last year’s review, I think I gave a lot of my time to others.
    I spent a large portion of my time at the temple, in service, of the Lord.
    It was a very spiritual year, I might add.

    Well, this year has been completely different.
    I continued last year’s schedule for the first three months.
    And then the pandemic happened. And everything changed.
    My life outside suddenly came to an abrupt halt. And I had to stay indoors.
    I think the paranoia had set in by mid-Feb. I knew there was an epidemic in China, and I knew it was only a matter of time before other countries experienced the same situation.

    It wasn’t a surprise really. I’d been expecting the great lockdown.
    I’d also been expecting a lot of deaths, disasters, and an apocalypse of some sorts, so to speak.
    What’s the current world stats? Hmmm.. lemme check.

    83M cases total.
    1.8M deaths.
    58.8M recoveries.
    Yeah, I’m not so sure about those numbers.
    I stopped believing in those numbers the moment China lied about their casualties.
    China began the global pandemic. And China set the example for other countries to lie about their casualties too.
    China SUCKS!

    China ruined the entire year for everybody.
    That’s the sum total of this year, without any narrative – China fvkced it up for all of us! Thanks China!

    The US has had around 200K cases daily for like a month now? Or is it 2 months?
    I lost track.
    The US now has 20M cases, with 350K deaths.
    And India has 10M cases, with 148K deaths.
    China, has only 87K.
    Can you believe this load of crap? 87K?

    When I went into self-isolation, I thought it was going to last 1 month; 2 months tops.
    I actually enjoyed the break, I must say.
    It felt good to just sit back and relax, and not have to run around everyday.
    But after 3 months, I was tired. And I hated it.
    I went to the temple to see if I could resume my services. They turned me down, and told me I should’ve stayed in the ashrama if I wanted to do services.
    Fast forward to September, I got in.
    Then I got out.
    It’s a long story.

    The pandemic changed everything.
    I hated having guests, always paranoid that one of them careless suckers would bring in the virus.

    I kept up with the news during the first 4 or 5 months of the year. I was really curious about the pandemic.
    But then it got stale. Always the same stories; same crap happening everywhere.
    I got bored.

    Some relatives passed away this year.
    I wasn’t close to any of ’em.
    I don’t miss them.

    I experienced a lot of internet problems this year.
    I really really hate this ISP.

    I worked on Krsnah Desktop and Krsnah Mobile OS.
    I stopped updating them after I had some issue on the desktop side.
    Later started working on them under the LibreKrsnah brand. No official launch yet. What a bummer.

    I tested a lot of social networks and platforms.
    Scuttlebutt, for example, was a very interesting and unique platform. Unfortunately the mobile and desktop apps had a lot of bugs and updating them wasted a lot of my time. I ended up abandoning them.
    Several fediverse servers shut down without any notice. What a bummer.
    I joined the Tildeverse and it’s become my go-to network for daily use.

    There were mass protests after the George Floyd incident.
    More mass protests followed against the lockdown restrictions.

    Had a termite problem where I live.
    It’s only been partially fixed.

    My health has been pretty good this year.
    Except the numerous stomach pains I’ve had every few weeks all year long.
    Oh, and the centipede bite, which ruined my heel for a few weeks.
    And I had these weird spots on my body – shingles? They’re mostly gone now, thank goodness!

    I started DJ’ing in early October.
    I’ve been streaming daily sessions on Tilderadio and I like it.

    What did I achieve this year?
    I’m really trying to think of something worth sharing, but nothing comes to mind.
    A part of me feels like I wasted the entire year, but a part of me ffeels like I grew up, y’know, learned something new, and maybe matured a lil bit more.

    I met some new people.
    But I don’t think I bonded very well with any of them.
    At this point, during the conclusion of the year, I pretty much feel like I’m still the same old outlaw.

    What did I want this year? And how much of it did I achieve?
    Looking at my New Year’s resolutions, I think I’ve missed 6 of the resolutions, which were targets for my accomplishments.
    On the other hand, I’ve made some really interesting discoveries and expanded on my realm of activities further than I’d initially thought of.
    So it’s not a total loss; but not something I’d pat myself on the back for either.
    I think I’ve built the foundation for some serious accomplishments next year.
    But I really need to push myself harder and focus on the goals. I lose focus easily. That’s why I couldn’t get everything done; I lost focus.
    I get easily distracted by newer ambitions and all the goals lose focus in the process.

    I think this could easily be the worst year in terms of getting things done.
    But I also think I made the best of the situation I had. i.e. the global pandemic and an overall crappy life in general.

    I have no regrets though.
    This is the best thing that I could be proud of. I didn’t do something I’d regret.

    I’m alive.
    This was the year of survival. I think I managed to push through just fine.

    The Price Of Questioning China 

    There’s this Chinese lady, Zhang Zhan, a former lawyer, who’d been exposing the Chinese government’s lies about the Chinese virus.

    The 37 year old will now spend her next 4 birthdays inside a very dark cell.

    In her last video, she said, “The government’s way of managing this city has just been intimidation and threats.”
    That was the straw that broke China’s back.

    She was convicted for “picking quarrels and provoking trouble,” a vague charge commonly used against critics of the Chinese government.

    Don’t believe the Chinese virus originated from the US? Prison!
    Don’t believe the Chinese virus originated in Italy? Prison!
    Did you just call Covid-19 the Chinese Virus? Death! Death! Death!

    I think Zhang Zhan got off quite lightly.
    Compared to Dr Li Wenliang, Dr Ai Fen, Chen Quishi, Fang Bin and many others, who just disappeared.
    What happened to them?
    How did the Chinese Communist Party treat those traitors?
    Did they chop ’em up into pieces and fry them for lunch?
    Y’never know.
    One can only speculate on the communist idea of getting rid of someone. Throwing them into the river would be a waste of multivitamins and protein.
    Since the Chinese Communist Party launched the idea that all wildlife were fit for human consumption, who’s to say they wouldn’t think boiled humans would make a good meal?

    I think Xi Jinping has chewed on human bones for dinner. Just look at the guy – doesn’t he look like some demon out of a horror movie?

    Anyway, free Zhang Zhan. Stop torturing the poor woman you Chinese freaks.

    Where are the online petitions to free Zhang Zhan? Where are the global sanctions on China for disappearing activists?
    Where is the outcry?
    All I’ve seen are articles by various journalists. And that’s all.

    Unless people start thinking about the freedom of Zhang Zhan, the Chinese Communist Party’s actions will continue to degrade and become more abominable.
    Don’t be surprised one day to see Xi Jinping’s henchmen capturing an activist on live television and then chopping him up for their Paramount Leader’s next meal.
    The Uyghurs have already lost their human rights. And the world’s silence on their freedom speaks volumes on China’s next moves.
