Daily Prompt – Inside the Bubble

A contagious disease has required you to be into quarantine for a whole month  How do you spend your time in isolation?

To be honest, it wouldn’t be much different than my normal life. With the exception of work, I keep myself pretty isolated. Most people either bore, or irritate me. I know that it’s probably my duty as a responsible citizen to put myself out there and be a part of the community – no matter how obnoxious it may be – but, call me a narcissistic jerk, it’s just not my style. Never really has been. I pretend that I like being a part of a group and fitting in with all the other peeps, but actually, I couldn’t care less if I am surrounded by people or not. Preferably not.

So, isolation really wouldn’t be much different to me. Maybe occasionally someone would come tap on the window and wave. Hopefully, there would be some curtains for me to pull and block all of that out. I would look at the whole thing as if I had won the lottery.

You mean I don’t have to see people for a whole fucking month. Cool!

So, I suppose that I would spend my time doing what I normally do. Reading, listening to music, learning new things. Maybe watching some tv

It’s not that I don’t like most people. I’m just over them. There are some pretty cool people out there with interesting ideas and new ways of looking at things. I suppose that I just get bored with seeing the same old trite crap everywhere I go. We are bombarded in the media with the most uninteresting and mundane people. At least to me they are.
Since the internet has connected us with the world, the mystery has gone out of everything. The world used to seem like the entire universe. Now, it appears to be the size of a marble. I keep waiting for the new and exciting, but it doesn’t seem to be out there. I have become inured.
