I’ve become more and more of a hermit lately. I just can’t stand noise or being in a place with several people speaking at once. I’ve canceled on several dinners, parties and social gatherings in the past couple of weeks. Music at the gym and at cafés bother me. I have watched more movies and read more books than ever in my life.
Having a lot more free time now due to my reduced social activities means I spend more time at home reading and watching movies. I feel like I am traveling to other countries through the books I read and movies I watch. It’s my way of traveling while my brain adapts to rewiring itself to see in stereo.
