Howdy hey. I don’t write in my blog much now as my primary focus is constantly torn between studying Tamil, making YouTube videos, replying to emails and messages, working, trying to exercise, occasionally seeing my friends to stay sane, and writing my book.
It’s as exhausting as it sounds. Gone are the days of getting home from work and just watching TV for hours until I eventually convince myself that I’ll only regret it if I allow myself to fall asleep on the couch.
I’ve recently stepped back a little from replying to messages and really appreciate how understanding everyone was. In this time, I’ve been able to focus more on the other items. Still exhausting, but more realistic.
My Tamil is really coming along. My YouTube channel has almost hit 3000 subscribers. I just completed 10,000 words in my book. It seems things are really rolling and I’ll try to share updates.
Right now, my plan is to finish writing in April and finish the edits by June or July with the help of the few people who have so generously offered to assist me.
For anyone unfamiliar, this book is essentially a memoir of the time I’ve spent in Kerala. Everything will be exactly per my memories – names, places, events, etc. I thought about changing names, but nothing is horribly dramatic or could disrupt anyone’s lives so I didn’t feel it was necessary.
I’ll try to post updates weekly. If I fail, feel free to contact me via email, facebook, instagram, etc and I’ll try to write something up immediately. I want to stay accountable this time since I didn’t write for a couple of months while I focused on YouTube and emails.
Have a nice day 🙂
