Are you on social? No, never. We’re just old enough to remember life before everybody was atomized and unhappy and had internet poisoning, living through ig and parasocial relationships with internet celebrities. Things were definitely better before, when our real world cultural spaces were full of people, so we’ve all logged off to do our part.
