I’m not sure if what I actually miss now is too far off the mark from the person I am. Really, I just miss people-watching in a public place and all the possibilities there are from observing lives being lived; I miss making meals with my friends and laughing and eating with them.

Perhaps for me, it’s not realizing that the persona I constructed is contrary to the things I actually want in life. I think now, with the hope that when this craziness has all died down, I would like to say yes more than no in making these things a more regular part of my day-to-day.
