Since I can remember, I always thought of myself as an extrovert … was I wrong all of this time?
At the very beginning of the pandemic, I had trouble figuring out how to occupy all the time that I suddenly had in my hands. I found the time long, and I really wondered how we were going to get through the next few months of confinement without seeing anyone or being able to interact directly with our loved ones. Weeks go by, and gradually, almost daily conversations on Zoom or Skype begin to become less frequent. We have nothing more to say! At the point where we are, I can say that video-conference calls are rare, if not non-existent.
A little text message, once in a while will be enough to make sure everyone is fine. “Hi, how are you doing? What are you up to ?” … Always to get roughly the same answer from all my friends. “Doing alright, hanging in there … not doing much.“
Currently, deconfinement measures are starting to see the light … To my surprise; I’m not boarding at all … It seems like I’m used to doing nothing, seeing no one, sleeping to pass the time … and that I’m ok with that. Stockholm syndrome, maybe ? 😉
Do I want to see people? Meh …!
Do I want to spend the afternoon in a park? Not really.
Shop? No more.
I’m just not interested in anything besides staying home, by myself. Never thought I’d say that…
