Day 531

Yesterday, we had a semi-outdoor summer party with the office. The mood was definitely different than on pre-pandemic parties. Less festive, more personal, more honest perhaps too. For many it was the first time seeing coworkers in months (and even the first time ever for new joiners). So there was this sense of having a really long shared experience. The evasive answers to questions like ‘how are you doing?’ People’s struggles with loneliness, boredom and stress.

Staying till 22:30 or so was definitely long enough for me, but I had a good time. And I’m looking forward to joining society again.
