It's only January 11, but I'm already tired of 2021


We're done with the first week of 2021. How are you doing?


Me? I already feel tired. I already want to fast-forward to December 2021, prepare for the holidays, and be done with this year. It's as if I'm still feeling the remnants of the mess that was 2020.


Things don't look promising in the political arena, whether local or international. I no longer have the words for it. All I know is that I don't feel safe, we're still far from the end of this pandemic, and we have to take better care of ourselves because no one else will.


I cannot control what's happening around me, so all I can do is ground myself. I want to devote more time to my passion projects, like continuing my ukulele lessons and recording more videos for Kat Plays the Uke, my YouTube Channel. I want to practice my ukulele-playing and my singing more so I can get better.


I'll probably retreat more into my music bubble, just like what I did last year. Listening to music while working now has a new meaning for me. It's not just a means for me to stay awake and get my creative juices flowing. When there's music playing, I feel isolated from the rest of the world and I feel safe. Then, I am able to focus more.


Speaking of music, I recorded another video last Saturday for my YouTube channel. It's my cover of Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World." My friend requested that I sing that for her, and I'm glad it made her happy. Well, it made me happy, too. Singing that song felt good.



We're now in the second week of 2021, but I'm not sure if I have the energy to face another 12 months. How about you? Of course, we have no choice but to face whatever the universe throws us this year. But if I can make a request, 2021, please, can you be kinder? Even just a little. We just need to catch our breath and get back on our feet.
