0s and 1s of 2021

2021 has been a satisfying year. While the beginning seemed a little blurry as 2020 had its flavors sprinkled all over, 2021 was way better. Here are the key highlights of the year:

Key Highlights

The Travel Stats

My travel times have definitely reduced this year, but not disappointing as well. The stats are as of November 2021.

I was part of an Anthology and it was literally sent to the moon! I was on cloud nine! It’s called – Chandrayarn.

ebook – available on amazon

I managed to complete reading 5 books and really hope to improve it in 2022.

Goodreads – books read

I as well did the August Movie challenge and here is the list:

Set – 01
Set – 02
Set – 03
Set – 04

I did host 10 audio sessions, later half of the year, 1 hour each, fridays, on the ClubHouse App. The talk was themed on Live It Out. It was a good experience to talk for an hour on life and whereabouts. The sessions usually had around 20 to 30 listening.
