2021 and its iterative changes

COVID is still around the block. The world is still, generally speaking, a mess. But how has 2021 treat me in particular? What’s new? What has changed?

The year as a whole has brought upon me abrupt changes. Circle of friends have changed. Interests, hobbies and whatnot as well, a little bit.

Plus on top of my GERD diagnosis of 2020, I now have to deal with Tinnitus which has been with me since June 1 of this year.


From a productivity standpoint, the year started out strong, as I was hitting the ground running with the promotion that I have received. But after a couple of months, I started struggling because of the toxic workforce and the pay didn’t seem right for what I was doing at the time. Though I did manage to get a salary increase and some bonus paid back for the months I was working at a lower rate, I still left the company in April. In time for when my mother had her surgery. She required a hip replacement, because when my some of my uncles were fighting, I tried to calm them down and stepped in between them. My mom was right behind me and when I got pushed, I fell on top of her.

Luckily, everything is fine with her so far and she can walk comfortably by herself as well.

Throughout the period when I didn’t have work, or well, a formal work place, I did have some part time gigs that helped me out. I also had a long-term German client with me. That job didn’t last all too long though because of financial problems on the side of the business.

I kept looking for different German related jobs while also keeping an eye on my previous workplace as well, because I truly enjoyed working with the team and in the department I was in. Eventually I was accepted to train for a German contact center and for my previous company. I decided to stick to the latter and was entrusted the same responsibilities and then some from my first run at the company. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity that they have given me.

As of this writing, I am handling a 21-man and woman strong team. I am excited for what this year has in store.


As usual, not much progress has come about in terms of gaming. Majority of the time was spent playing Mobile Legends, in that game, for over half a year now, I have been maining Beatrix. I have a win rate with her of around 90% across all accounts that I have played her with, amounting to over 500 games played. Not bad, right? One of my goals for this year is to reach Mythical Glory in Mobile Legends. I also aim to reach division 1 in FIFA 22. I was able to reach division 1 in FIFA 21 earlier in 2021 as well. So, I’m excited for that.

In terms of full blown RPGs that I have played this year, I have touched a bit on Pokemon BDSP but I haven’t finished it yet. There was also a bit of fun with rogue-likes like Slay The Spire. But the one thing that really got me this year was Ghost of Tsushima. It was actually a late 2021 purchase, just weeks before Christmas. But I am happy to say that I have almost 100% the game on Hard mode. I’ll probably be playing it on New Game+ at some point, but I am just happy to have almost 100-ed the game and rolled the credits in it. As it seems, I’m finishing one whole game each year! But seriously, GoT is such an amazing game. Sure, it did feel repetitive at some point, but all of the minor and major side quests were absolutely amazing. I will probably also have to play Iki Island as well. That should be fun too. Before that though, I’ll be jumping on to another game.
