Monthly review – November 2020

November has always been one of my least favourite months because it is usually so gloomy, the days get considerably shorter, it marks the end of autumn and the beginning of summer [edit: as you can see, I am not ready for winter ahah], and it is definitely not as festive as December. Plus, this year, the country was in lockdown for the whole month, which didn’t help. However, despite all that, it was better than I thought.

Renewed motivation: in the past few months I struggled to feel motivated for my side projects, which mainly involve language learning.
