I had received calls from Amazon drivers asking if I would like my packages delivered for months, and today I finally fixed this issue

For months, I had received calls from Amazon drivers asking me if I would like my packages. “Of course”, I would always tell them. But still, I was wondering why this happened so frequently.

Until probably two months ago, I asked the Amazon driver why you always asked me this question. I thought it was their fault. But he told me, “you left an instruction saying you want the order cancelled, please not deliver the item”.

Well, it came to my mind that, yes, I did leave such instruction for an order. I didn’t notice that this instruction was saved and used for all future orders.

But now I think it makes sense, it is the instruction for the delivery at this address – the address doesn’t change, neither does the instruction.

Procrastinated for two months, I finally remembered to erase this instruction.

Received my first COVID-19 dose on May 9

Waiting for vaccine
Waiting for vaccine

Going to receive my first COVID-19 dose tomorrow.

I recovered 100% about two days after the shot.

I will have my second does in late August. Almost four months hope that as more vaccine doses are coming, the appointment could be advanced.

By the way, the vaccine I received was Moderna. I preferred Pfizer actually, but what vaccine is used depends on what vaccine doses are delivered on that day. So, there is no option. And Moderna is using the same technology (mRNA) as Pfizer, so I don’t think there will be a big difference.

The doctor told me the protection rate would be 85% two weeks after the first shot, so, I plan to visit the university for the first time since March 2020, this Sunday.
