What is the thing that you wish to do when you have “time” to do it? I have a long list for my ‘one day I’ll do that and nothing will stop me once I start!’ such as, baking, cooking a complicated, foreign meal, learning Italian, play the Piano, write breakthrough research in the field of reading in L2, learn to sew, painting on canvas, enroll to philosophy class in online courses, write a short essay for each book that I have in my modest collection size, to read the book that I haven’t read yet even though I have bought it many, many years ago and etc… I told you it was long.
So there are few things that I have managed to do, big thanks to ‘this time which shall not be named’, work from home period, and restrictions to many places I used to go to spend my time. I did some baking, not all of them can be categorized as a successful attempt but no one is hurt and all of them are perfectly edible. I also got 4 certificates from MOOC Coursera! Currently I have enrolled in several other online courses but the end is still out of sight. But I am not a quitter y’all! as for other things which include Italian, Piano and painting as well as writing a breakthrough research paper, um, they are still in the ‘one-day’ column
Yesterday, I re-arrange my book collection and the idea to write a short essay for each book was re-emerged. I kinda play with the idea now, and perhaps this idea soon will be started
