The current lockdown has unlocked a part of my mind’s arena to rethink about the free time that we take for granted. I now realise the importance of being all by myself and minding my own business. The most important thing I tell my students over virtual class, make your time worthwhile, invest it on yourself, rather than aimless ruminations.
I have also learnt that it is never too late to explore and learn new things. I have recently started learning French and this is one of the best, however late, decisions of my life. I love using a few phrases every now and then much like a wannabe! Nevertheless, this is my way of sharpening my linguistic skills and be a better version of myself. So, while each one of us is fighting a silent battle against the virus, let this not give you a chance to crib and complain. Do not hesitate to rise up to the occasion and unleash your heroism in these testing times. When it is a rocky course ahead, be a rockstar!
