Happy New Year?

Yeah, it never hit me that 2020 ended, even if it’s currently three days into 2021.

I spent the last day of 2020 working in the bakery. It was quite a painful experience as I and another part-timer were instructed to clean containers outside in the cold. The other coworkers rewarded us with a cup of hot coffee, couple of sandwich slices and also some tandori chicken meat which was super delicious. After 12 PM, the other part-timer left since she’s going back to her hometown in Miyazaki. It made me little bit jealous and sad that she could go back and enjoy quality time with her family while I’m just going to be stuck in my own apartment.

I continued working for 2 and a half more hours until all the work in the kitchen department is done. It feels somewhat fulfilling being able to complete all the work together and leave at the same time while greeting each other a happy new year. I went home and spent the rest of my day playing games and topped it off with Animal Crossing’s New Year Countdown. Really, what would I be doing without this gem?

I spent my Christmas in a similar fashion as well, working at the bakery and playing Animal Crossing. It soothes my soul a bit that I could still celebrate festivities through these games. A person from the HRD of my company also called in to check up on us, which was really nice.

On the first day of 2021, I woke up and just chilled at home the whole day (the bakery’s closed until the 5th). It felt like December 32, 2020 instead of January 1, 2021. It’s always been like this for every new year but I think the sensation will linger for a longer time because of the pandemic and whatnot. I think my body clock is going to be stuck in 2020 for quite some time before being able to move on.

Well, 2021 is here and I’m not sure what I can expect from this year (what can anyone expect?). I’ll just have to do my best in staying alive like any other year. Happy New Year!

  1. Aww, I really wish you could have gone home to your family. I know sometimes I wish I could have just stayed home by myself. Sometimes I find that I’m missing my own parents and would love to see them. But it’s just part of being an adult. I remember working on holidays and missing out on everything. But then again, the older I get, the holidays don’t feel very special anymore. I don’t know… I try to pretend to be excited and happy, but deep down, I’m not. Anyways, I’m glad there was Animal Crossing to keep you feeling festive! I’m hoping to have an online Nintendo account soon! (Hopefully before my birthday).

    I was so happy to see that you blogged! And thank you for always commenting my blog. I know you’re busy, but I start to worry when I don’t hear from you. And I know that’s silly because you’re an adult and will be busy especially since you’re working. Anyways, happy new year! I know it doesn’t feel like a new year, but keep staying positive (although it’s hard).

    1. I haven’t actually been playing a lot of Animal Crossing aside from their events lol. I also left my island construction at 30% haha. It looks like a barren wasteland right now.

      Thank you for always commenting on my blog! To be honest, I don’t think I would have continued writing and maintaining this blog for this long if it weren’t for your comments all this years. I’ll try to keep posting from now on too! (but sometimes I don’t because I have no idea what to write about haha).
