Dear Covid 19

Dear COVID-19,

 

This might sting but I hate you.

 

If I can describe my goal for 2020 in one word, it would be hustle. I was ready to make a marathon-like sprint to my goals but these few months, I've been crouching at the starting line, waiting for the starter pistol to be fired.

I’m fulfilling all the unaccomplished promises I’ve made to myself – Vlogging, creating organic content that screams Xenia and learning production through online courses.

I never knew how tiring it actually is to do nothing for weeks.

I never knew how desperate one can get when there is $0 income for months.

I never knew how scary it is to figure life out in a confined space without friends, beer and some self-deprecating humour.

 

I guess sometimes, you need everything to be taken away from you, to know what you don’t know. For that, thank you.

 

I’m working like it’s my last gig.

I’m open to learning new things and making mistakes – technology, YouTube, cameras.

I’m fulfilling all the unaccomplished promises I’ve made to myself – Vlogging, creating organic content that screams Xenia and learning production through online courses.

 

My goals are still waiting for me at the finish line and I don’t have to be Usain Bolt this time. I’m taking it at my own pace.

Xenia Tan
