For most of this year I undoubtedly was not bothered by the isolation created by the pandemic.
I do not have a large problem with spending time alone and working on my own projects. I am a large fan of having empty days and room to pursue my creative endeavors. As an introvert, I do not need to speak to other humans every moment of my life. However, it turns out that even an extreme introvert can get tired of this lifestyle. Honestly, I assume section of the problem is being trapped indoors with the same humans for the past year. The people I was with and I are all getting cranky with each other and it is creating family squabbles about everything down to the central heating, cooling, and air quality control system. I never thought that our thermostat, heating system, and air vents would be such controversial subjects in our lives. However, as time goes on and the outdoor weather conditions changes it seems that our indoor air temperature preferences are becoming a major source of struggle for all the people. Over the summer time I assume people could get along with their air conditionings as we tried to combat the outdoor heat and humidity. There wasn’t much of a question in anyone’s mind about pumping ice chilly air through our extensive duct toil and air events. However, as the outdoor temperature dropped our diverse preferences for heating settings began to rise to the surface. It turns out, all the people has a weird opinion on using the central heating system or relying on the traditional wood burning fireplace. For the past week we have been at each other’s throats with seriously hot heads, all because of our stupid indoor air temperature.
