As the citizens and government are trying to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus, netizens were out there proclaiming, it takes positive attitude to deal with such a deadly virus. During the lockdown, we discovered fresh new budding talents at the home front, human and others. People spending more time in the protection of their homes have given rise to this phenomena. This is a period where many un-sung talents of people were unwrapped and social media getting flooded with content like these. As we find ways to beat COVID-19, it is worthwhile to also discover your hidden talents while you are at it.
New ‘Master chefs’ in the house..
The lockdown did spring up surprises. ‘Youtube chefs’ for instance. No kidding!..Not everybody succeeds right away do they? Burnt food is a usual now, as new recipes are doled out of the kitchens nowadays. But the fun of cooking was always there. If you are an aspiring ‘Master Chef’, start with something small and scale it up from there. Let not tasters’ comments bog you down or boost you too high.
Time for the ‘Pets’ Fashion show’
Ladies churning hours of time in front of their mirrors is passé. The bun and beard guys could earn a fortune, if someone were to pay them for their selfie time. Dressing up kids is usual. “Why not try dressing up your pet ‘DOG’ for a ‘Cat’walk??”. (with their consent, of course) Young minds and the internet were all set to start a new trend out of it. It took no time for the pet lovers to showcase their pet’s talent, and theirs. The social-media was filled with pet fashion shows. While many of these showstoppers looked happy with their owner’s efforts, a few made it clear that they were unhappy, whether it was for the fashion as a whole or their owner’s efforts, only they can tell! Do you have a pet at home? Please take your pet’s consent before you think about putting up a pet fashion show of your own. Needless to say, a good owner will know whether your pet really enjoys being in the spotlight or not.
The Artist within..
Some really put the lockdown time to use helping them rediscover their passions. For some, the artist within sprouted like a seed buried in fertile soil. A lot of people took to social media with their arts to show the world who they really are. While many focused on their art, many others took opportunity to showcase their talent by educating people on the pandemic and possible ways of dealing with it. Nevertheless, it is never too late remembering the forgotten artist within.
Creative minds definitely made the most out of the COVID-19 lockdown time. All those funny videos that you laughed about, all those funny memes you ROFL’d are all products of these creative brains. There is one thing common in all these content that make social media go ga-ga over it - FUN. Never stop having ‘FUN’, whatever you are doing. We should be thanking these talents to bringing a breath of fresh air during these trying times. Kudos to all those netizens, video creators, memers, trollers, etc. Here are a few notable ones. Enjoy!!
