88. Day Five And Six


Dear Readers,

On day 5 and 6 of being at home (23rd and 24th March, 2020) nothing much happened again. On day 6 of being at home, India’s Prime Minister made another speech declaring a nationwide lockdown for the next 21 days starting on 25th March, 12am! This just made everything a hell of a lot more weird and scary.

I know I’m home and the people I know are also safe in their respective homes but it just feels weird. I also started watching the show Money Heist properly. I’d already seen a few episodes here and there and I know the story till season 2, but I want to properly watch it scene by scene. I’m done with the first 8 episodes and my oh my is it good.

For picture of the blog, I selected this picture: WhatsApp Image 2020-03-23 at 20.05.07 (1)

This picture was taken 3 years back in the college where I had done my Bachelor’s. I remember vividly that my college had organised an event and I participated in the photography contest wherein each participant has to go around the campus and click a picture of something that they like. This blog’s picture and the next blog’s (that I’ll be uploading) picture are from my favourite place in the campus. It was the most calming, quiet and serene place in the campus. I’d love sitting there and just thinking whenever I get the chance to.

I love nature and I love trees. I love everything about them. I love how trees instantly make the place more beautiful. I ended up not winning the contest but that day is something I’ll never forget because I had so much fun walking around the campus and clicking pictures of anything that seemed appealing to me.

I just realised that I should do it more often because I want to be that happy again. Clicking pictures and videos and editing them are something I’d do for a living. But I always wanted to take a more interesting and slightly more challenging subject and keep photography, blogging, writing and drawing as my hobby, as something I can run to and escape to when I needed to get away from my work and my studies. I honestly don’t know if I made the right decision but it is working for me so far and I hope it continues to do so.

Well that’s it for today. I didn’t blog yesterday because I didn’t want to do anything. I spent hours watching Money Heist which I thoroughly enjoyed. How are you all doing? What are your views on my blog?

I really hope all of you are safe, healthy and in your homes. I hope you’re all washing your hands regularly. I hope you’re all practising social distancing. I hope you’re all not wasting water because we don’t want this pandemic to lead to another worldwide natural disaster: water scarcity. I hope you’re exercising at home (even if it’s a light workout). And I hope you all are avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

I understand that it can get a little irritating and feel like you’re locked within four walls, but try to focus on the positives and work on yourself and better yourself so we can all fight this together and resume our lives as soon as possible.

Regards,
Realistic Beginner.

  1. Have been wondering what to watch on TV. Will try ‘Money Heist.’ Your write up was fun reading and I liked the way you ended the post reminding people what they should and should not be doing now.

  2. I’m enjoying seeing these photos!

    If there’s one great thing about streaming, it’s that it probably helps people feel less insane being indoors. (I’m washing my hands but admit to being a disastrous job at not touching the face…)

  3. I’ll have to look for Money Heist and see if it’s available to me πŸ˜‰
    I am also absolutely crazy about trees… in fact, when I saw the pic, they were the first thing that stood out for me. I actually said ‘oh my, the trees!’ out loud πŸ˜‰
    Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

    • You should, let me know what type of genre you prefer and I may be able to suggest some good shows. I watch a lot of shows in general xD
      I’m glad you share my love for trees and I actually imagined a version I have of you saying it, haha
      Hope you and your family are well πŸ™‚

      • We’re all still fine thank you πŸ™‚ Here’s hoping that you are too.
        Hmmm… I’m an unusual one when it comes to what I watch πŸ˜› I like murder mystery, crime, psychological thriller, suspense…. all that type of stuff πŸ˜‰
        I don’t watch a lot of stuff… I prefer reading πŸ˜‰
        (So you can imagine what types of books adorn my bookshelves πŸ˜› )

      • Honest to God, those are few of my favourite genres as well. I love a murder mystery, crime, psychological thriller and philosophical books. I’m trying to get into reading now more than ever!
