Just like all of us, I am also Bored In The House. I spent first few days just relaxing, unwinding and playing Bloodborne on my PlayStation. However, the low productivity started eating into my consciousness and I decided to do something which I had never before done in my life. I actually entered the kitchen and started experimenting with food. So far, it has been fun. It's worth mentioning however, that I have still never made a cup of tea in my life and not sure if I can make a nice cup. Guess, there has never been a better time to experiment right?
Exploring Audible / Podcasts
I never liked Audiobooks in particular and could never develop enough interest in listening to Podcasts. However, this downtime gave me enough time to experiment with these and I must say I was missing out on something huge. I am pretty confident that I will be able to beat my yearly book reading challenge this year with the help of Audible.
Amazon Audible provides, a 3-months membership with amazing value for money. The selling point for me was huge catalogue of audiobooks and the fact that you can return any audiobook within 12 months of purchase, irrespective of the fact that you have read it. If you want to sign-up for Audible, you may use this link to signup for a free 90 Days Trial - Audible Membership.

Listening to Russian Music
I believing music is the gateway to culture. As part of my cultural exploration, I asked my Russian friends to create a playlist of their favorite childhood songs. They don't have to be soulful or classy but they should define the time they were most played similar to Daler Mehndi or even Himesh Reshammiya in their respective times. Anyway, here is the link to my Spotify playlist, take a listen.
