I am thoroughly enjoying the isolation. Yes the pandemic is horrible, the suffering, grieving, and loss of life is unimaginable. BUT, I never liked hugging, shaking hands, getting physically close to folk, small talk, or parties. Now all of that is gone, and I don’t miss it. I don’t plan to return to any of it, TBH, when the pandemic ends.
Also, I’m lucky enough to have a job that allows me to work from home, so the two things I always hated about my job—the drive to work and the drive home—are now gone, as well.
I’m hoping my company (which is international and has over a quarter million employees) will allow some of us to work from home permanently.
