Not severely affected by the pandemic

The big difference is I don't go out to shop as much (which is nice), stay 2 meters away from people in line-ups (which is REALLY nice!), and the rest of my life stays about the same. I work, am too tired to socialize after work, but I found a tiny bit of extra time to exercise almost every day. Yoga and running... and I always run by myself, so that's the same. Yoga replaced bouldering (which I would do mainly by myself anyways). Now I'm on the computer by myself. The only thing I will miss is the family dinners, although I am an introvert and I find those really emotionally exhausting, as much as I want to be there. All those social butterflies are just dying, eh? Welcome to reality. Work and no play... Although, if you don't want anymore either, you may just go crazy.

This is kinda how I'm feeling too. Nothing much has changed in my life (as a relative loner) aside from not being able to hit the gym or play/practice golf.
But it's funny that I actually feel a bit lonely for the first time in forever. I really cherish my limited social contact with the outside world.
I feel for you folks who had outgoing social lives just two weeks ago...at the beginning of the lockdown I was joking 'welcome to my life suckas!' but now I know better. If you ain't wired to be alone this whole thing must truly suck ass.
Make the best of it you can folks, at least you always have each other!
