The last weeks weren't easy. Since the corona pandemic started many events got cancelled. Just last weekend I would have been on a company organized vacation in Linz. It is now postponed to next year.
The infection rate in Austria is going up again and although I don't think that there will be a second lockdown, it could be possible easily.
I would have been at a Biostatis conference in Switzerland in October which got now changed to online only.
I don't feel depressed yet, but I get the feeling that I am somehow on a downwards trend. Although the recent release of Microsofts Flight Simulator got my mind wandering around earth again, it is still something I have to do from home and on my computer.
I don't even want to do paramedic shifts, I know it would benefit myself and of course many others, but I just don't feel like it.
As I got home from work today my only thought was to go straight to bed. I tricked myself into reading the newspaper on the balcony where I enjoyed a great sunset.
After the long and lonely first three quarters of the year, the last one is starting. Days are getting shorter, the sun keeps on vanishing.
