This post has been long overdue, but better late than never, right? 😉
Off the Blog
Last month I mentioned how I was enjoying working from home because of the flexibility it offered. Well, I no longer have that privilege and I am back at the office full time. It took some time for me to re-acclimatize myself to being back in the office environment.
There has been an increase in the number of persons who have contracted the disease, but these are imported cases. Curfews are still in place but they are not as restrictive as before. They allowed restaurants to reopen for dining in, but some persons refuse to follow the safety protocols, which led to a ban being placed on these entities.
As usual, they are persons who refuse to follow social distancing, which makes me not too keen on venturing out unless it is absolutely necessary. I still cannot get used to wearing masks, but what choice do I have? None whatsoever. They have now become a fashion statement.

My reading for the month of June was dismal compared to May. This was because of personal stuff, which had a negative effect on my reading. However, the situation has now been resolved, making it easier to enjoy my favourite hobbies.
