Went to the temple in the morning. Played mrdanga. Fantastic guru puja kirtana.
Harinama Sankirtana. The kids brought a mrdanga of their own. Couldn’t play because it’s heavy and the hands really hurt in the cold mornings.
Karatala players were meh. They need to put some effort and learn how to play properly.
Went to a previously visited location. So it wasn’t as fun.
16 degrees celsius. Didn’t break a sweat. But hands weren’t dry.

Christmas Eve.
Wow. The year flew by. I feel like it wasn’t February too long ago.
I did not accomplish the goals I set for this year. But, all is not lost. I decided to turn over a new leaf. I think all humans have the potential for exponential improvement. I’m constantly trying to improve and better myself. #changedman
I’ve made a few internet friends since. At least, that’s what I’d like to think. I wonder if they feel the same way.
I haven’t wished them a Merry Christmas yet. I’ll do it now.
My friend Milan has been very kind to me.
He’s younger than me but very mature, smarter and very intelligent. He enjoys running. He’s the quiet type.
My other friend is Niklas. He’s an old soul. He’s talkative like me. I enjoy our little conversations on Matrix.
Realitygaps and jcgruenhage are also my friends. I don’t know much about them. But they host some decentralized services on their own servers and enjoy tech.

officialcjunior is my first Mastodon follower outside Matrix. I can’t tell if it’s a he/she.
Profile name says she. Sometimes I get the feeling it’s a girl, but I’m not really sure.
She’s very friendly and has a good sense of humor.
Vee is my other friend. He enjoys a variety of stuff so interesting to keep up with.
I like my internet friends. I learn new stuff from them everyday.
I believe friendship needs something in common to be able to relate with someone on some level. My friends lead different lives and have different personalities. But we share some things in common: our love for technology, value for privacy and stuff that make me say “Hmm, I didn’t know you liked this too!”

I’m going to read The Bible now to ignite the Christmassy feeling in my room that’s otherwise absent.
Merry Christmas!
