I’m happy to say I’ve found a way to cope with isolation for a month! Make new friends! Literally!!
I keep scaring myself by walking in to the living room and finding a presence there already, and it’s not my flatmate! He himself is regularly taken aback by the sight of the figures unexpectedly appearing. They take up way too much room on the couch but will be useful when I’m feeling in need of a hug. Today – one of my work days – they were absolutely useless at filing and answering calls.
