Lately I've been talking with people a lot more often than I did even pre-pandemic, I can't overstate the positive impact it's had on my life. Even when I'm having an off day and can't contribute much to conversation it at least feels like taking effective medicine

Oh, I should say this has entirely been through digital/internet methods (through not just VR but also streaming and Discord), I'm saving in-person gatherings for whenever the pandemic gets to a reasonable place


I'd go so far as to say VRChat, livestreaming, and VOIP/chat protocols have been game-changers for my social health the way exercycling and motion-controlled dance games were for my physical health
