After my resignation, I’ve been doing a lot of household chores, like doing laundry, vacuuming, mopping floors, etc. I’ve also taken on cooking, after nearly three years of not cooking at all. Except for breakfasts — which still mainly contain steamed frozen buns and dumplings — I cook pretty much all the lunches and dinners for me and my partner. Surprisingly, I still kind of remember all the nitty-gritty of cooking, so it didn’t take me too long to recover my cooking skills, although I did cut a tiny opening of my left thumb in my first day of cooking, kind of inevitable. So far it has been two weeks, and cooking has been going on well. If I don’t want to cook, my partner will jump in and prep some quick meals. I bought enough materials from Costco to make easy sandwiches in case none of us want to make “real” meals.
Besides taking care of our living environment and our stomachs, I’ve also been hiking and reading, unsurprisingly. Hiking and walking alone, I mean. Sometimes I watch birds, and I’ve already been to several popular birding sites nearby, getting prepared before my parents visit us next month. Book-wise, I’ve not been reading as obsessively as I used to, partially because I’m focusing on hiking and birding, so that my eyes can take a break. I’m reading more nature-related books than I’ve ever read, learning about all the various and amazing ways of surviving in this world.
That’s about it. I’m not writing very often since I don’t know what to write. Perhaps I should at least jot down a list of things I do daily, but I also want to focus on living at the moment and enjoying it. Regarding ways to earn money, I’m still doing research and thinking about it. Will come back to this topic later.
