Oh, the Malaise

This time of the year is usually busy with parties, excitement, preparing for vacations and some family time. Instead, we have malaise.

I’m so bored.  I don’t give a shit if you work l day or just sporadically. Life has become boring.  I have gone through a variety of stages through COVID.  There was the short lived time when I thought this was not going to go on for a year. Then there was the realization of how this thing was going nowhere and all signs were pointing to a massive rebound. Unclear what stage I am at now. 

The boredom and frustration is overwhelming but knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel is actually more anxiety ridden than the absolute freak we had last March.  C’mon, don’t tell me that the last 9 months has not been an emotional roller coaster on various levels. Everybody has had enough.  Remember we are a culture regardless of age who gets instant satisfaction in the world we live in today. 

I’ve had so many thoughts over these long grueling months about where we end up when this ends.  The longer it goes on the more we will see bigger changes.  If something didn’t work before there would be zero reason at this point to return.  There will be so much creativity coming out of every industry. 

The best part of this time is everyone is being creative. The meals, the cookies, the cakes, the breads, the knitting and crocheting projects, the painting, the drawing, the closet cleaning, the content watching, the book readings, the games being played, the puzzles getting done.

The vaccine can’t come quick enough.
