Covid-19… I Get It

Seriously, I get it. We’re all sick of being stuck in our homes and not interacting with other people as much as we used to.

We want to get out. As humans were social beings — we want to be around each other and hang out.

But there is a deadly killer out there. There is no vaccine. there’s not even an effective treatment to make sure you don’t die from this virus.

I get it. I want to go back to my office. I want to go back to happy hours in person. I need a break from my house and my immediate neighborhood.

I missed the space between home and work. Yes, I worked from home from time to time. But having office space 10 minutes away helped exponentially.

But the virus is still out there. It’s still fucking killing people. I just saw a stat that the virus has killed more Americans then World War I. That freaks me out. And it should freak everyone else out as well.

People have stayed home for 3 plus months and haven’t gotten the virus, only to go out to the bar once and get it.

People are working on a vaccine as fast as possible. I don’t think it’s going to take 4 years. I think, just my opinion, we’re going to see if vaccine early next year. That’s when life can and should get back to normal.

Keep in mind, Covid-19 will most likely become a yearly thing, like the common flue, with vaccines having to be gotten yearly. But, like with the flu, we’ll have a jumping off point in the future.

Let’s all not forget that we’re still not out of the woods yet. Covid-19 is still a threat — a major threat.

Also, it’s not just about you and how you make it through it without much of anything. It’s the people around you they might not fare so easily.

Be be smart. Be safe everyone.
