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:
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.
I managed to complete reading 5 books and really hope to improve it in 2022.
I as well did the August Movie challenge and here is the list:
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.
There have been few others as well, like officially starting my research journey, workshops, etc. I will keep them in summary points.
