Earlier this year I was a little upbeat on how things were going. Finally I thought, things were turning up.
Then things turned round pretty fast. There were a few hiccups along the way, but nothing we couldn’t handle. And then this whole pandemic thing just blew everything out of the water. It would be a little selfish of me to think how a disease that’s disrupting everyone’s lives is particularly damaging to me, but looking at how everyone else is reacting – hoarding everything, and jacking up prices of essentials – I think I can be just a little bit selfish. Just this once.
Things suck again, but then, they suck for everybody.
I really hope that this blows over soon. We can then get back to salvaging our lives, and continue our individual pursuits of happiness.
