I will not be celebrating new year's tonight. There is nothing to celebrate. Another year has passed without any end in sight for the pandemic. This year was a major disappointment and next year doesn't look to be any more promising. Fuck false hope. Wake me up when this fucking pandemic is behind us for good. Wake me up when I can safely and freely travel to Japan again. Wake me up when I can safely and freely attend anime conventions with free hugs again. Then I will have reason to celebrate. Even as a nearly full-time hikikomori I am so over this shit.
Maybe 2023, 2024, 2025 or some year in the distant future will be better. I don't have any hope for 2022 and I was a fool for thinking that 2021 was going to be a year of recovery and healing for the world.
