Ok, I have just been informed by my manager that I've been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He told me that business has dramatically slowed down and keeping the hours of operation the same would've been unsustainable, so they've drastically shortened and that meant anyone who was working during those lost hours, including me, would have to be laid off. He also said I'm now officially eligible to register for unemployment and that in spite of all this, he enjoys working with me quite a bit and will contact me to see if I'd like to come back when all this is over.

I thought I would be enjoying the fact I have far more time for myself now, but in all honesty I'm absolutely hating it. Without any real schedule to follow or p[laces to go, my life has never felt more aimless and alien than now. It's only gotten worse now that I'm out of a job and can't go to the gym, but neither of those compare to not being able to go outside, talk to or even see others. For lack of better terms, I've been feeling so lonely and anxious during this last week, and I don't think this'll be the end of it. While we do have cell phones, emails, internet access, text messages, social media, and video communications services in modern times, none of them will ever be a sufficient replacement for speaking to others in person. I know it's unsafe to be interacting with others in person right now, and social distancing isn't something I find particularly difficult to do, but it doesn't change how I feel right now. I've never thought much of connecting with others, yet now I actively crave something that would give me that feeling, even if it were nothing more than listening to a monologue.

Have you heard of the phrase "humans are social creatures?" I usually gave it only passing thoughts in the past, but with all this going on, I firmly believe it to be true now. I find it funny how events like this, even if they turn out to be short-lived, can change us so drastically. Don't get me wrong, if we follow standard procedures for proper hygiene like covering our mouths with our elbows when coughing and washing our hands in warm water for at least 20 seconds, we'll make it through this. It's just that I never realized this could end up being a period of self-reflection, which it is for me. I'm comfortable with that, but I never thought it would happen during a global pandemic, and how sudden and unexpected it felt.

So how have you been doing? Have you bee having self-reflection, too? Stay safe and have a nice day.

Perhaps I should’ve been more clear, so I’ll say this: I’m not extroverted. In fact, I’m very introverted. I don’t like going to parties or events with loud noises, and if I have to go, I usually sit by myself in a quiet room. I like to recharge in solitude and I just focus on the task at hand when I’m at work. I’m not complaining about having time alone, it’s the fact I’m out of work and can’t even leave the house with all this happening that’s really irritating me. I simply never imagined my life would take such a turn when I’ve been used to it. I brought up socialization because even though I generally like being alone, I still have small periods of speaking with others, usually at work, because it can help with relieving stress and I find the conversations we have to be quite entertaining at times, so I find it helps to socialize every now and then (not in crowded or loud areas, though. I really don’t like those at all even before this pandemic happened).

And please don’t be rude. Making assumptions that I’m extroverted and a “normie” when I’m simply explaining what I’ve been thinking over the past week, how my life has been affected by this pandemic, and wondering how people here have been doing is just being a jerk. For the people who have been taking the challenge to intentionally infect themselves, you’re right in saying they’re stupid and I would agree 100%. But when the person you’re speaking to literally lost their job because of this virus, that’s crossing the line.

what i was talking about is these fuckers on social media bitching and crying about how easy they got it compared to everyone else thats suffering especially in places like in Italy which i have a few friends from. And also the fake introverts as well too complaining how lonely they are and the hypocricy of how they call introverts weird but what they are doing is rpetty werid itself.
