April 2020 Accomplishments


April always seems like a busy month to me. Apinder‘s dedication to share his accomplishments and learnings every week and month prompted me to give this a try. I am trying this for the first time and don’t know if I’ll ever do this again.

Completed one year at my first job
I know it seems more like a year’s accomplishment but I don’t care. A year ago when I had joined, I was not very sure of what this place held for me (not that I know any better now), but I have enjoyed my time here.
Whenever I felt that life was becoming monotonous, challenges were thrown at me. I have learned a lot about my field of work, professional world, people, life and myself.

Appreciated nature
Went back to my love for photography and spent some time with nature.

Appreciated strangers
Wrote appreciation notes for 12 people every day as a part of an activity organised by the NGO I am associated with. I have not been active for quite some time with the happenings of the organisation but this activity helped me get a lil of my comfort zone to talk to new people and spread smiles on their faces.

Participated in A-Z challenge
Participated in A-Z challenge. I did 14 posts out of 26. I was much busier last year and had still managed to complete it. This year, I don’t know why but I couldn’t make it till the end. But who says I can talk about self-love and self growth only in April. I can do the rest of the 12 posts throughout the year 😛

Organised multi-author story writing activity
A multi-author story writing activity is being organised on Blogger Community to bring writers together to weave their words together. Six writers from India, UAE, UK and Canada have already contributed to the story. If you want to participate, click here. Want to read the story? Start here.

Wrote college assignments
I managed to complete the writing part of three of the four assignments and I feel I have forgotten how to write. The last time I picked up a pen to write was in April last year when I wrote my exams.

Baked
While helping with the housework here and there, I baked nankhatai (sort of cookies) and a cake too. The nankhatai turned out to be so delicious that we ended up eating them all in one go (so, no photos :P). For the cake, the utensil betrayed me. I’m gonna try it again next week. Let see how things work out.

And oh! I tried Dalgona coffee too. Our phenti hui coffee is much better than that 😀

Learning new languages
Two bloggers from this lovely community have promised me to teach me their native languages Punjabi and Urdu. While Punjabi lessons are going a lil slow, we’ll start with Urdu after Ramadan. I know I could have learned the languages online but then learning from them is going to be an altogether new experience.

How are you spending your time at home?

  1. What a busy bee you have been! I’m just trying to survive. This home schooling thing with my kid has been more stressful and difficult than simply raising her alone for 9 years, grrr.

    1. That’s so sweet you you, Api. I’m glad you took the charge for May with the music posts. I’ll be coming up with mine soon. I already have two songs on my mind. Yet to decide on two more. 🙂

  2. That’s amazing. You’ve making the best use of the lockdown. And I’m so glad that I could be a part of Jugalbandi. I loved the pictures. Do keep writing. That’s so sweet of you – to write appreciation notes. I had often wondered when I saw the #AppreciationPost but now I know. Do keep writing. ♥️

    1. Thankyou. Yes, I am doing my best to keep myself sane.
      Aah yes, the last two posts were the appreciation notes I wrote for “the strangers”. You too, keep writing and keep reading ❤
