I know I’ve been seriously lacking in my posts and videos, but it is hard to find inspiration sitting at home waiting Covid out, luckily I still have a “job” that generates a measly income, but it does keep my mind from wandering off dreaming about bicycles, traveling, etc.
Thailand kicked off its mass vaccination against COVID-19 nationwide on 7 June 2021, lots of PR blah blah blah, and I was due to receive my first jab on 15 June…… but 5 days after the kick-off date I started hearing rumors that the vaccine will run out on 14 June, just 7 days after the grand mass vaccination program the government proudly presented.
People who had appointments from 15 June onwards were told they didn’t need to show up, the government called it a postponement, but no one was given new appointments. People were informed of this cancelation/postponement by the Public Relations department through media, or SMS, however, as I am special I never received an SMS. I figured that I’ll turn up at the vaccination center and see what comes.
On 15 June, I woke up early, refrained from taking a cup of coffee (as per recommendation from some bullshit news source), drank so much water I felt like a fucking fish. Off I went to the vaccination center, only to see the center empty and closed. I can’t tell you how pissed off I am, this is June, half a year of year 2 has gone by where we are confined to “stay at home” and other stay safe slogans.
I had plans to travel north, south and northeast 2 weeks after my first shot, but all those dreams just wash down the toilet.
So here I am sitting at home, trying not to pay too much attention to annoying behaviors of family members hahahaha, luckily I have an “office” in my house, and that’s basically my hideaway, either that or it’s the garden when the sun isn’t too hot. But it is interesting how spending so much time together you start to notice things that irritate you about your other half, and then it nags you endlessly.
There was talk about the potential increase of domestic abuse cases as a result of strict quarantine rules, I wonder were their any murders???
