How does the month of March feel like?

The month of March feels like an emotional roller coaster as my hidden true self resurfaces and shakes off everything that doesn’t serve me anymore. With it comes the urge for busyness—to clean my apartment and my mind, sort my things and thoughts out—fertile ground for the cultivation of a new me and a completely different lifestyle.

During my winter dormancy, some bright ideas have taken root, and now it is time to face all the challenges that come along with their manifestation. I’ve always wondered what it is to be a digital nomad, read magazines instead of books, so-called bookazines, or run a YouTube channel about learning English for pleasure. Fortunately, there are those out there who have already been on this journey before me, and their blueprints can illuminate my path. Crossing the threshold of a new chapter of my life is always scary, but the satisfaction of being able to say, “Wow, I nailed it” is a phrase that never dulls. Since life is the spark, I should seize the moment.
