'Tis the 1st of June

June 1st. The start of a new month.

And I am so happy to see the end of May. (And I suspect that most people out there feel the same way.)

Last month was a pretty wretched month for me (and lots of other people). Most of this can be attributed to the current status of the world order and society in general due to Coronavirus pandemic and the self-isolation and lockdown that was imposed and is still in effect for the most part. While the self-isolation and lockdown are being eased so as to restart the economy everywhere, the virus is showing quite clearly that it's not easing off for the most part. Regardless, the world around us and the social nature of humans has also shown its ugliness during the course of the pandemic, with terrible events happening (some of the worst being near the end of May). Needless to say, I was pretty sad that CanGames 2020 did not happen due to the coronavirus shutdowns everywhere and limited social activity if any at all, I've spent much of May dealing with severe foot and leg pain, major problems with my left hip/abdomen, and some diabetic problems that I'll not discuss for the moment.

I was so miserable for much of May (and still am, to some extent) that I was hit with a major period of depression. I'm still suffering somewhat from that, but have managed to find one or two positives in my life. I started to re-watch the classic (and it definitely *is* a classic!) Babylon 5 tv series from the beginning, starting with the 2-hour pilot movie, "The Gathering". I've finished off the first two seasons of the series, and it's been one of the few bright spots in my life at the moment.

On the down side with June, this is the day that usually truly heralds the coming of summer for me, and the hot weather that I really dislike. That and the allergy season is in full swing now (though it's been a rough year on allergies all around, or so I've heard). The recent heatwave made things even more miserable for me, since I've not got functioning air conditioning at the moment, as my ductless a/c hasn't been serviced yet this year.

Anyway, June is off to a somewhat quiet, not great start, though the weather cooled off for several days.

In the meantime, "One day at a time in June" is my motto.
