It's gotten to a stage where reality is becoming hard to grasp. I know that sounds alarmist and people often say these things without meaning them, but let me explain. Think about your best friend. You've been in contact this entire time, but whenever you think of your best friend, you're probably still thinking about the person you knew in March, right? But here's the thing, time changes people. Time spent isolated changes people even more. Do you really know your friends anymore, if you haven't met them in such a long time? Do your friends still know you? Do you know yourself? Which version of yourself is the reality? The one on Facebook or the one on Instagram? Or is it the one in the group chat where you think you can be your "real" self?

This is all becoming too much. We need to keep in touch with real world things. Maybe the news will help, a daily dose of reality. But wait, no, none of these things look real anymore either. Did that person really say that? Are you allowed to say that? Did that really happen? What?
