Yesterday, I decided to drop off a few things at my parents’ place 30 minutes west of my home.
Some people are dropping off the social internet.
I get it. We’re all fatigued by the constant bombardment of ever-changing news.
Although I believe in staying informed, I do sometimes scroll mindlessly, which, given we are starting day 8 of quarantine here (for my family specifically – many of our friends just returned from spring break and are at the beginning of the staying home movement) is hardly surprising. We’re still adapting to social distancing and its emotional and mental effects.
It hasn’t been easy but for me, an introverted homebody to begin with, not that hard either. Having the family around constantly has been a learning curve but again, we’re managing. Mostly.
