Personally, I like the quiet. I like the sleepiness of empty streets and sidewalks, even though, right now, I can’t go outside to enjoy them. I like being holed up in my house alongside the sounds of nesting squirrels and birds in our vents. I enjoy the simple things and being alone is one of them; this is a very good thing as I have terrible executive functioning skills and a short attention span.
The current period of isolation, however, has given (and continues to give) me space to filter through the white noise constantly buzzing in my head. Being alone gives me a chance to really enjoy the things I do. Reading for pleasure, for example, is one of those things.
