The Man in the Mirror

I finally shaved off the lockdown beard and the man in the mirror is, oh my God, someone in the 50s.

Ha ha ha. I know it’s because of all the lockdown weight but you know how people from 30-50 look the same age and 50-65. I’m firmly in the latter bracket.

This means I would really not like to meet a person who looks like that and is whiny. He is supposed to be the man with all the answers. Also a man who looks like that should be the father of a kid in his 20s not someone with a 3 year old. Ha ha ha ! I have to stop hanging out with people in their 20s. I would’ve been embarrassed to call such an old man my “friend”. And no it’s not like I’m depressed and so speaking so, I really should not.

I also should stop being grumpy because I look like a middle aged man who is always in a bad mood.

I think this is why people sport those beards. Gives them some personality other than of a grumpy middle aged man.


The upside of the Annus Lockdownus was that I could spend the whole year wearing the same clothes day in and day out. As a result I have at least two T-Shirts and one sweatshirt whose collars are literally worn out- I mean like they are missing cloth at places.

Also, I managed the whole winter without wearing sweaters. Yeah I know it doesn’t get that cold here but I managed the winters with t-shirt > thermal vest>sweatshirt >sports jacket.

I’m gonna purchase some clothes tomorrow. Since I’m being thrifty I hope there’s some end of season sales on so that I can buy stuff for the next winter.

Also, I’m buying “minimalist” clothes so similar coloured t-shirts etc.

I’m off processed food now (except last two days). Keeping at 10k steps most of the days-so hopefully I’ll see the lockdown waist reduce in size in a couple of months so that I can buy jeans.

<Fingers Crossed>

I have given myself one year to make a living as an artist…. (it doesn’t mean that I will give up after an year, I will continue it for 3 or 4 years more, at least). But self doubt….
