COVID-19 Report: WUFF Cancels 2021 Con

My heart literally goes out to WUFF, which takes place in the Ukraine and all the problems that country has with Russia WUFF had to be cancelled more than a few times. In fact their actual last convention was in 2018. So by the time 2022 rolls around it will be 4 years since their last con. Here at Furry Times we wish them the very best.

COVID-19 Report: Confurtiva

As the year winds down we finally get a press release from 1 of the 2 cons that still had an event scheduled

CONFURTIVA2020

Dear Confurtiva fans, artists and attendees.

It is with regret to say that the event planned to take place this weekend in person has been postponed indefinitely to 2021.

In order to maintain the economic development of the event, our strategic allies, the Hotel Geneve, have provided us with the facilities so that the payments and advances made to the facilities to carry out the event remain insured, as indicated in the attached communication letter addressed to our General Director of the Event: Alejandro Gutiérrez Lizardi "AoiKuma".

The Hotel Geneve, sensitive to the current situation of the event, has also offered to maintain the costs of the 2020 event, so the prices in the 2021 edition will not increase.

Not only that, but we will have the full collaboration of our strategic allies to carry out a hybrid mini event (virtual and face-to-face) to support the furry artistic community in the coming months and maintain support for the event.

That is why if you:

You purchased a space for the event.
You have purchased an access to the event.

You can keep it at the same cost for our 2021 event or for the hybrid mini event to be announced.

In case you prefer to execute the refund of the payments made. You can write to confurtiva@furrymx.org where we will gladly coordinate the procedure to carry out the refund. However, the event and our strategic allies would help us a lot if you prefer to choose to keep your access or your table. Rest assured that we will know how to reward it.

This year we celebrated our virtual edition, which allowed us to maintain the continuity of the event and of the guests, in the next few days we will upload the conferences of the event for you to relive them!

Thank you for your preference and see you in 2021!

COVID Fatique

First of all I don’t want to panic anyone, we are not talking about a new strain of this COVID-19 virus that has plagued us for the most of this year. Only what we have been generally feeling as this virus drags on. If you feel any of the following you have COVID Tired, over stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, anxiety, scared and sometimes hopelessness you got it. It is the same thing I have been feeling for months, I just didn’t know what it was called until they mentioned it on the local news.

UC Davis Health has this article that talks about how we all feel.

We’re tired of being cooped up, tired of being careful, tired of being scared. Our collective fatigue is making some people careless – one reason COVID-19 is rising sharply again in California and throughout the U.S.

However, facing this fatigue is important for our personal health and for beating the coronavirus that has shaken American life so completely. Many people understand this, which adds to their exhaustion and stress.

“This is a real challenge,” said Kaye Hermanson, UC Davis Health psychologist in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “There are no easy solutions.”

Even though the article goes on to talk about what might help LINK

It all comes down to taking your mind off to others things. In other words do something that requires your full concentration. Exercise, playing video games, reading, whatever. I fully admit I have put on over 10lbs since this started and I don’t care what anyone says. The lower cost gyms are closed, where I live it’s ones operated by the Chicago Park District. They have not been open since March.

So I ordered a Bike Trainer from Amazon and I have full intentions to use it. So you might be wondering if I have a bike, why don’t I use it? The answer is simple, I can’t ride with a mask. That mask restricts my breathing, and when you won’t go out without one. You see my problem, so that is why I am spending $90 to get one.

Meanwhile find something to do. I welcome submissions (ahmarwolf (@) mail dot com) Otherwise try and find something to do, believe me it helps.
