I always come up Extrovert on those Myers Briggs quizzes, probably because I am very outgoing when I’m actually around people.  But the current “isolation” is essentially my normal everyday lifestyle.

No social obligations, no alarm clocks, no errands to run, no need to touch up my roots!  Finally my solitude and germaphobia are fashionable!

it feels like i’m a teenager again. lol I don’t have to get up early anymore and sleep in. my husband stays in, my son stays in, all schools are closed or have schooling through internet or they bring school work home.  Sadly it’s not very good for many workers who are out of jobs, unless they get paid from their vacation time or sick leave, or if their company can pay for the leave. it’s good for a couple weeks but I don’t know how long it would last, certainly not for a few months.

we do get out a bit in the forest to walk with my mother in law, but even then, the government was advising to stop going out during the weekends to the forest, because it got crowded lol  everyone was going cabin fever perhaps and going to walk was a way of exercise. Sadly all the fitness centers are closed, and during this spring time every year, the fitness centers are usually packed!!!

I’m mostly introverted but I do like going out and doing things by myself. But I also despise isolation and I get slowly pissed off the longer I’m cooped up. However I can deal with quarantine because I understand it’s needed to flatten the curve to make COVID-19 no longer a public health threat.

I just miss hanging out with certain people that I love.

I’m more introverted than extroverted. I’ve always enjoyed my alone time because I have a lot of hobbies, so this quarantine doesn’t really bother me at all. Especially now when the weather is starting to warm up, I can spend some time outside getting my garden ready. Its still too cold to do anything much, but there has been a couple of warmer days that were great to enjoy outside and BBQ.

I do miss being able to come and go as I please, but whatever I have to do to get rid of the virus I’ll do.

I distanced myself from refined sugars (includes carbs), it was easier than I thought and I’ve dropped a few pounds

The worst thing about this whole Corona and quarantine thing is that I’m physically (huge 1st house stellium) very energetic so being claustrophobic makes me feel like eating! Yeah, I’ve got some pathological thoughts that aren’t working in my best interest! frown
