Coronavirus Continues Kinda

August 29th, 2021
Packed Dishware

Twenty twenty-one has continued, the virus is supposedly in a fourth wave but deaths are not evenly distributed, not in my city, not in my province, not on my continent and not throughout the world. A lot has happened in 2021 but I’ve not chosen to blog again until now.

Why haven’t I blogged, well not much happened in my life personally. I worked, I watched TV, I played video games, I generally was even more anti-social than usual and of course that is what your were supposed to do during the time of the coronavirus.

What has changed?

Well I moved, I finally got off my one year contract merry-go-round and shortly after that I bought a new (to me) condo in Calgary’s Beltline. The first thing may have gone wrong with a breaker or circuit in the ensuite failing. That wasn’t why I wanted to blog though. It was building some more flat-pack furniture that finally may have sparked my interest in blogging again.

Moving Truck

I was going to blog about Sid Meier’s Civilization again and I still might, I have plenty of screenshots for that post. I also moved from iTunes Match to Apple Music and I plan a post on that next. I even already updated my miniature painting blog as two weekends in a row I’ve bought models. Now I just need to buy a new painting desk and maybe I’ll finally get my mojo back.

Lots of things I haven’t been doing during the coronavirus such as exercising. I actually hurt my back and leg moving. They are old injuries but they are worse than ever and I may be fatter than ever, but I’m afraid to weigh myself. So I will try to get back into a routine of exercising, reading, playing games with friends, and painting. But I may have to cough up for my first home repairs.

I was pretty lucky during Covid, I stayed employed, I saved money, none of my close family or friends got sick, but sacrifices were made. I finally saw my family a few weeks ago and may actually fly home for Thanksgiving and definitely for Christmas. My sister also wants me to resume blogging, because she sent me a link to an abandoned blog just today, and she has a story to share. This blog isn’t abandoned, it’s just that life was very monotonous there for a while, if your life has gone from monotony to something resembling a new coronavirus normalcy you can leave a comment below.

    This month we are in the process of welcoming employees back to Tesla offices. Whether you’ve been working on site or working remotely, we want to thank you for your hard work as Tesla continues to break records and achieve new milestones virtually every day. We are returning to a new normal, but the basic principles that guide Tesla’s success remain the same: excellence and respect. Since the launch of Model S in 2012, we have engineered every Tesla around the same advanced architecture that maximizes occupant safety. Today, Model Y, Tesla’s mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), is the latest Tesla vehicle to earn a 5-star safety rating in every category from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

      Good luck I guess.

      Your comment confuses me because I didn’t write about Tesla the car company, maybe never, certainly not in conjunction with Covid-19. Has the pandemic increased electric car sales? Normally I would have thought this was spam and it may well be, but you have no link to anything. I certainly am not trying to rank for Tesla cars or sport utility vehicles so I’m not sure why you would target my blog. Anyway I wish you good luck, people have left stranger comments. Don’t try to take advantage of my goodwill though.
