I know that it’s probably a meme that everyone mentions by how fast a year can go by. With that, I finally turned 32. Yes, I am that old already. Obviously, I felt that I didn’t do much since the pandemic has forced many to stay home.
Sure, it’s nice to work from home, but the toll of not really interacting with anyone for a long time started to take a toll. Despite being introverted and spending time talking to my parents virtually, I can only do it for a very long time before it gets tiring. Of course, the setbacks I face on my blog didn’t help matters either.
Believe it or not, I didn’t get much done during the last year since I want to keep myself safe. While I finally made it through my first year on the job with flying colors, it does feel that I didn’t accomplish much. Even with vaccinations and everything slowly starting go return to normal, I don’t feel ready. It’s mostly due to people refusing to get vaccinated despite the vaccines being safe. To me, it’s becoming very political when it shouldn’t.
Of course, people decide to ditch the masks when the mandates are lifted. I simply can’t trust people since I can’t know for sure they are fully vaccinated. This is one of the reasons I decided to not attend Otokon. That is besides the fact that there weren’t any notable guests to make it worthwhile. If things go right next year, there is a good likelihood that I will attend next year.
Despite the setbacks, I still feel optimistic about the future. While I don’t know what the next year will have in store, hopefully it will be a better one.
