This is the first blog entry I've posted this year, which is remarkable really as it's already February. Time has been going so fast lately. In fact that's not the only reason for the delay. I've just been feeling mentally run down recently and things that would normally be a joy have weighed me down turning into a chore. I had a lot of problems this time last year and I feel I'm trying to solve everything with my hands tied so nothing has really changed.
The covid lockdown isn't something that directly effects me as I work at home anyway, but the longer it drags on the more I realise how I miss going to conventions, comic shows, and so forth, with the days blurring into one another with nothing to look forward to. Incidentally long before I even knew about such conventions I used to go to a computer show every six months which in some ways was similar albeit without the cosplay.
Last year I was looking forward to the Hyper Japan Festival which was to take place in April, along with the London Film & Comic Con, and MCM Expo later in the year. Obviously they were all postponed. Both the Hyper Japan Festival and the London Film & Comic Con are due to take place in July of this year but I very much doubt they will actually go ahead.
Part of me feels I should simply go to bed and wait it out, hibernate until normality returns.
