Well the thing is... I have to be motivated getting the kids to school, going to Work, purchasing groceries, making dinner, and all the other regular daily chores, which under normal circumstances are alright, but that´s because there are Little lights at the end of the tunnel in the form of concerts and football matches, which are the two Things I do to have some fun and excitement in my life, and I really don´t need much more than those two Things to let some steam out once in a while, but as Things are now, there are only the daily chores to look forward to...day in, day out...so yeah I´m near a state of depression, or at least a point where I don´t smile when I wake up in the morning. And the prospect of this lasting for maybe at least one more year is devastating to my mood Ouch
 
I´m a fairly simple guy, with fairly simple needs, but when I´m stuck in the rut with no escape in sight, I can become your worst nightmare...I look at myself shouting angrily at people in traffic I normally wouldn´t react to (yeah they are bloody fools, but I usually just take a breath and reach my zen and ignore them), and having destructive thoughts, and I´m sure the pandemic isolation situation has a lot to do with it. I´m fuckin´ sick of it...
 
...sometimes I feel like I´m this close...to going

Looks like you're on a second wave just like we are Jonas. 

It does get really depressing. Especially seeing people breaking the rules every day, hearing about people protesting the 'fake' pandemic and in general being a bunch of gormless fools. 

I have days where I cannot get motivated to do anything.

Oh...and on corona related news, half of Denmark is in lockdown Again (including the municipality where I live) as the infection numbers are rising Again. It was anticipated, but it was still sad to hear that bars and restaurants now have to close at 10 PM and only 500 people are now allowed into football matches. Masks everywhere too (forced use in public transportation....damn I love my car). I´m not saying it´s not necessary, but I´m beginning to feel depressed and worn out by this Whole situation. I haven´t been to a concert since mid-February, which is very unusual for me, and sitting Down at a football match...nah that´s completely wrong in my World (if I can even get into the stadium). It´s just that when you don´t have anything to look forward to in your daily life, other than go to Work, go home, sleep, and then everything just starts over the NeXT day, with very Little variation...I´m just tired...and need variation.

^Yeah we actually had some issues at Work today with people not being able to start up their labtops after having removed them from their docking stations and returning them again. I suspect this major update may have something to do with it.

It meant I had to fuck about for half an hour this morning getting my work PC going. In the end it required the old "pull the power cord and count to 10" trick.

How a major update for Windows 10 go and start at 11:30 PM last night. 1:15 AM it finally finishes.

The only thing I can see that it did was fuck up my monitor settings.

I'm personally in a more fortunate locale. My town comes under the Braintree District which currently has total cases of a mere 544 since it all kicked off. The nearest larger local authorities are Chelmsford (828 cases) and Colchester (774 cases). 

There's a map here where we can track where the actual transmission is happening in England, although it is always a few days behind on the latest data. The current 7 days it shows is Sep 1st to 7th. 

https://www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=47574f7a6e454dc6a42c5f6912ed7076

It seems to be spreading more since the schools were re-opened. And I can see why because my house is on the usual walking route to the secondary school and whatever social distancing measures the school itself may be enforcing are clearly just going out the window with the kids to and from site.

And here's me feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't play a bit of tennis over the winter...

Things are nearly getting back to normal here, and it's easy for us to lose sight of what's happening in the rest of the world. The new cases are in single figures every day, and all are linked to traced cases or imported people testing positive in quarantine.

Yes, we need to trace everywhere we've been. Yes, masks are recommended. Yes, we still have to wipe, clean, avoid groups etc. But what we haven't got is what you have - people getting sick and dying from this damn virus.

Whenever I get annoyed about the restrictions we have, I always think of what you guys are living with. I write about COVID every day at work and I deal with different regions of Australia, including Victoria, which is the hardest hit in that country. But somehow, the numbers and precautions and emails from work colleagues don't seem as real as what I find when I read about the everyday life you guys are going through. (This is part of the New Zealand psyche - we often feel like we're observing the rest of the world from afar.)

There's a Maori saying here - kia kaha. It means stand strong. It's the equivalent of the old British stiff upper lip and a bit more. It means stand strong for yourself, and be strong for others too, and those others will be strong for you too. It's said a lot when there's been a disaster (we've done a few of those in the past few years).

So from me to the rest of you not doing so well and facing tough times:

Kia kaha

Stay well Chris. Middlesbrough where I am is on the watch list so a second lockdown is not far off if things get any worse.

Guess the second wave of Covid-19 in the UK is pretty official now with all the massive escalation over the last week. Over 3500 new cases today. By early July our lockdown had got new cases down to just over 4000 in a week. This week we have over 14000 with one day's tally still to come. I'd guessing a final total of over 16K for this week which will be our highest since mid-May. On the brighter side our deaths are down to a trickle and hospital patients on a ventilator remain minimal, but this is all very worrisome. This is exactly what all the predictions back at the start said would happen if mitigation wasn't handled effectively. I feel today like our government's response since day one has been a whole lot of doing things either too late or too soon.

I think that scene was more epic than any actual lightsaber duel in any actual Star Wars movie. 

I downloaded a lightsaber mod for Fallout 4. Fallout 4 with lightsabers is pretty damn fun too.

I downloaded a movie the other day called Harry potter and the Deadly Weapons, which has replaced all the magic in the first HP movie with guns. Unfortunately, I can't get the damn thing to play.

Yeah, that's such a great classic video, did they ever come out with an album? Never really looked into them past that cover.
