    Covid-19: Rollback 

    I’m back!
    Dun dun dunnnnn!

    Yeah, that was pretty quick.

    It was an interesting week.
    I don’t want to discuss my experience on this platform because this is public.
    I did, however, make some brief comments in my journal and have published a comprehensive article on gopher today.
    So the nerds will be able to access the article early while the rest of the world will have to wait until the matter has cooled off.

    So, what did I learn?
    I learned, for starters, that it’s not wise to go anywhere during a pandemic. It’s very risky and you may put your health on the line for something that’s not really worth dying for.

    I also learned, that I need to appreciate my simple and peaceful life in self-isolation.
    Apparently, I’d gotten so bored with my boring lonely life, that I forgot how evil people are outside my isolation zone.
    A brief interaction with them brought me back to my senses.

    But most importantly, I learned that I needed a new direction in life. And what I had been preparing for with so much enthusiasm and high hopes and dreams wasn’t quite fit for me, because again, people, aren’t as nice as we all hope they’d be.

    So, I’m back on my own. Life may get boring and I may suffer from an occasional mental breakdown, but, all things considered, everything is just fine and dandy.
    The alternative is a horrifying trauma-inducing experience which I really wish I hadn’t gotten into.
    Word of wisdom for the overenthusiastic people – consider the worst -case scenario before you commit to something.

    Covid-19: A New Chapter 

    Time flies.
    A part of me is grateful for having spent 5 months in self-isolation. It gave me an opportunity to reflect on life in general and distinguish the important things from the irrelevant crap that has plagued our modern world.

    Today marks my last regular day on the internet.
    From tomorrow, I won’t be accessing the internet like I used to.
    I don’t think I’ll miss it.
    I don’t think it’s very important either.
    Personally, the internet has become a place for self validation. All these posts and journals and articles – for what? What have I really been trying to accomplish here? And who in the world cares?
    And that’s the big picture.

    The pandemic reduced my scope and focus. It’s micro. It’s not the end of the world.
    And as I spent more and more time reading the news and scrolling through hundreds of videos and comments and opinions, I became bored. I was frustrated because I was not making any progress in life. Time was flying by and the realization that it was all going to waste was awakening.

    One’s life should always be focused on the big picture. What’s the most important things in life? What makes a difference in your life? What helps you grow?
    For me, it’s the answer to the question: What’s the last thing I want to accomplish before I die?

    And so the pandemic will go on. Considering my predictions, the worst is yet to come.

    I have no idea what the future holds for me. I just pray that my health remains undisturbed and my work continues to flourish.

    I’d like to congratulate India on attaining the 2nd position in the Covid-19 marathon.
    I predict that India will overtake the US by November.
    For the past few days. India has had twice, and thrice the number of cases in the US and Brazil.
    As the Covid-19 death rate continues to make records, the population of dogs in India is increasing dramatically. Interesting phenomenon.

    I have 4 months to make a difference in 2020. I already wasted 5 months due to the pandemic.
