What do I miss most in lockdown as an introvert?

The lockdown never troubled me initially. I do love spending time alone and I am still going to work, therefore my free time is basically the same. But it’s almost 3 months into the lockdown and I clearly know what I do miss the most.

The only 3 things I need for happiness

Stay home, save lives

Hanging out with friends

Didn’t expect this one, did you? As an introvert, I don’t enjoy going to pubs or partying my ass off in night clubs or so, but I really enjoy spending time with my close friends. And I do miss them so much right now. It’s even harder now, because summer is here… This sunny weather just invites you for a BBQ party.

Imagine sun, beer, bbq and friends…

Watching a movie in cinema

Don’t get me wrong, I still prefer watching a movie on Netflix, but I do miss cinema. I kind a had a habit to watch a movie in cinema at least once a month. On the other hand, I might be missing that huge screen and enormous sound system more than activity itself.

I just love getting in those comfy seats, watching a movie on huge screen and… THAT LOUD, STEREO AUDIO! I love how great audio effects sounds!

Visiting shop whenever i need to

Shopping cart

Nowadays, I always think if I can avoid shopping, because, well, stay home – save lives. Me and my girlfriend just do a weekly shopping routine and that is it. Compared to before the lockdown – we were going to the shop much more than once a week. Sometimes we visited shop twice a day, just because that sudden urge for some snack or a cheat meal 😀 As well, we don’t go for any non-essential shopping.

I never thought I won’t miss my birthday celebration

I never have a huge birthday party, but I invite my close friends and/or family and celebrate it. And i always loved that, but this year I had to cancel all my birthday plans as it was during early days of lockdown. And, well, I don’t miss it. I wasn’t even sad I couldn’t celebrate it. That is weird, huh?
