Got stuck at point #3
”You had to leave the house to socialize”
It is just a picture but I found myself in just a couple of seconds completely uncheck all the things I do not do anymore. It is years since I participated in social events on public places. Visited a cinema three years ago. It was terrible. All the ”work” doing, driving for an half an hour, parking the car, buying snacks and soda. Getting home. Better just to stream the movie. Tonight it is Daytona 500. Know there are people flying over the atlantic during non-pandemic times watchting oval-races in the states. Do not imagine myself doing such things. It is out of my comfort zone.
I drive a car, to a state park, and visit a couple of libraries to borrow some study books. Visited a book store a year ago and remember that the man that worked there seemed to hate it. That is it.
Distance learning. Normally I take the train and walk through some central parts of a big city to the university. Always tired. Studying is harder.
The world is big and small at the same time. Today.
Decided to get onto a project to try to remember how life was before internet. My experience is that my mental world has reached some kin of limit. Must reorient and find some new paths.
But it is crazy that we experienced the creation of social internet. That is why we are here at the forum right?
