Strength is not born from strength. Strength can be born only from weakness. So be glad of your weaknesses now, they are the beginnings of your strength. ~ Claire Weekes
Welp, 2020 has finally ended. For some people (maybe many), the year was an absolute shit-show. However if I speak for myself, I have neither hate nor love for 2020. It was what it was and yes a few things did happen that I can categorize as important or slightly awesome, but overall it was a normal year even when it was not normal in most perspectives. Now that I think of it, I need to write something more that a journal entry to review 2020 because definitely a few good things happened but I will be honest that I don't want to admit this year was good (for me personally) because that would imply that a year can be good or bad and that would in turn imply that I have little to no control over how a year will turn out. I don't like to think that way and hence I just take a year as just a year - A timeframe. Nothing more.
What prompted me to open up and write this journal entry was not this new year thing but I wanted to share a trick into the void (I think no one reads this so it is kind of screaming into the void). I was facing a bit of issue with my mousepad. It would slip on the top of my work desk whenever I flicked my mouse a bit harshly, which should not be the case with a mousepad that has anti-slipping material.
The solution / hack is to clean the bottom of your mousepad with a damp cloth and clean your table top with it too.
~ see you soon.
This is the first of many journal entries yet to come. I am excited to write a lot of these entries in the short format. This is solely for me and so that I can revisit these entries after some time and maybe learn something from them. Let's start!
I also thought I should start this by posting a pic of mine, but that didn't work out well. Although I am sure I will post a few here when something interesting pops up.
