Interestingly, I've been more sociable during and post-lockdown. We would host ZOOM beer sessions, play games with each other and sometimes even stream a movie together on Discord for a laugh. My social circles grew by quite a range thanks to Covid and some of the circles have now intersected.

I used to be able to go a full weekend without talking to anyone outside of my partner and perhaps my immediate family via text but now every day I'm talking to people. Can't think of a day in a long while that I haven't at least had a conversation with friends.

For whatever reason, my sociability went into overdrive when I realized I wouldn't be able to see people for a long while. The result has been really nice.
