It kind of seems like this current situation we find ourselves in is like a total flip-flop of the world we lived in only a couple of months ago.
Instead of meeting up with family in friends, we now get together and chat over Zoom calls. (A side note about that, is everyone out there dealing with a never-ending barrage of Zoom calls? People I haven’t spoken to in years now want me to “jump on a Zoom call…”…it’s all very strange).
Anyway, back to the matter at hand.
This stay-at-home order is affecting everyone differently, and introverts are feeling it in their own special way.
Here are some very funny tweets about living the lockdown life as an introvert.
1. I am on board with this.
Enough with the Zoom calls!
Take it down a notch, not everything has to be a zoom call.

2. That is very pushy.
Just hit DECLINE every time.
JUST BECAUSE WE'RE IN A PANDEMIC DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN JUST FACETIME PEOPLE WITHOUT A HEADS UP

3. You’ve been ready for this.
Pssshhhhttt, six feet is nothing.
Before we had to stay six feet away from each other, I already practiced a minimum of 20 feet. #introvert

4. I’ll be celebrating at home, thank you.
I've just realized one massive benefit to quarantine that makes it all worthwhile for all us introverts
absolutely no one can force us to go out for our birthdays

5. How does this thing work?
I just can’t seem to figure it out!
How much longer can I get away with pretending I don't know how to work Zoom?

6. But only for a second…
Sometimes, they don’t even notice.
How do introverts flirt?

7. Let’s just ban it from our vocabulary.
When this all over… I never want to hear the word zoom again.

8. Yeah, that’s not good.
I guess you can go sit in your car for a while?
Truth about introverts. This quarantine is not our dream come true. We have people in our house who NEVER leave.

9. Counting the days.
They aren’t moving very fast though, are they?
Others: Social distancing day 40
Me: Social distancing year 20 and still counting..🙇🏻♀️

10. That’s a good life plan.
You’ll get to them at some point…maybe…
I don't ignore texts and emails, I let them age like wine
— Aparna Nancherla (@aparnapkin) April 3, 2020
11. There are no excuses anymore.
This is REALLY not going well.
Introverts were all ‘I’ve been preparing for this my whole life’ at the start of lockdown, but now their extrovert friends are inviting them to Zoom parties every weekend and they can’t say they’re too busy or spend the night hiding in the kitchen.

12. You’re a hero!
Keep doing your part!

Now we want to hear from all of you out there!
How are you holding up? Are you spending this lockdown time alone or do you have other folks in your home with you? Are you going nuts?
Give us a life update in the comments, please! And remember to be safe out there!
