Always Be Optimistic and Positive!



Right now, it seems like a lot of pessimism is going around the world, and, yes, things are bad right now, but take the time to look at the small things and appreciate them. Since most of us have some spare time now, do something that you've wanted to do for a while but just couldn't get around to doing it. You could challenge yourself, and use the extra time to try something you've never done before, you'd be surprised at how fast you can accomplish something.


For example (this ties into my first entry), I started learning Japanese about 2 weeks ago, here's how my hiragana handwriting looked when I started: 15868199185355828685900583012992.thumb.jpg.f8514a700d391a35cf6ca018700aad33.jpg

As you can see, it's awful. But after using my spare time and not giving up, my hiragana now looks like this:1586820063415203870522983828737.thumb.jpg.6bcaa10aa0bf7b3a61963fe561a1c6c0.jpg

Now, it still doesn't look great, but instead of taking up almost an entire page, I now just use up about half of a page and can write and say 60% of these characters from memory, keep in mind, I'm not a good learner, so if I can start writing a completely foreign language from scratch in my spare time, you can accomplish many things with this extra time brought to you due to the virus.


TL;DR Don't let the shutdown get to you, use your new spare time doing things that make you happy.
