I was honestly doing okay with quarantine for a while. Summers in Hollywood are miserable, and I usually spend most of my time sitting inside waiting it out anyway, but!! Fall!! I love fall weather and fall drinks and pumpkin patches and eating outside with friends!! I mean, sure, you can do some of those things with a mask on and you can still see friends over Zoom, but I don't know about you guys, but I've noticed my friends groups meeting less and less over Zoom as quarantine goes on. Sometimes Zoom lunches can be fulfilling (more often when they're one on one) but other times I feel more alone after they're done than when they started?? It's just . . . not the same.
Also I know this isn't as serious as like, the profound loss of true human connection in our society, but the pumpkin spice latte from my favorite cafe just doesn't taste the same in a take-out container as it does in a ceramic mug, and that's what really sent me over the edge this weekend. Anyway I'm just real sad about fall.
