Listen: Introverts Totally Get How A Year Of COVID-19 Lockdown Has Changed Us All
“I don’t know how I used to get up at 7, and then be ready by 8:30 to get on the train to the office, and somehow be ready to talk to people. I feel like this is going to be a long adjustment of learning how to be human again.”
Welcome to another episode of BuzzFeed Daily!
On today's episode:
1. This week the world marked a full year since COVID-19 officially became a pandemic. It’s been a year full of isolation, missed celebrations, and so much time spent online.
There’s been a lot of focus on how hard this has been for extroverts--people that crave human interaction. But, things haven’t necessarily been easy on introverts either. Today we spoke with BuzzFeed News Reporter, and self-proclaimed introvert, Michael Blackmon.
Listen to hear what Michael’s heard from other introverts about how the pandemic has changed them, whether he thinks post-pandemic social anxiety will be a thing, and if there’s anything we can learn from introverts that we can take into a post-pandemic world.
2. Bon Appetit is gonna get the HBO Comedy treatment.
