Why Can’t I Stop Staring at Myself on Zoom Calls

I am but a modern day Narcissus staring longingly into her pool.

We are all living in the world’s shittiest episode of Black Mirror. Just vibing in this poorly constructed panopticon. And honestly, I am spending most of my time these days peering into my own soul via the Zoom window that shows what my class is seeing of me.

While this post might have the cadence and feel of a joke, I think that the pandemic is making me an asshole. I can’t tell if it is simply that I am not getting my daily dose of perception from others looking upon me in public places or if I was this self interested before this whole fiasco, but it’s getting out of hand. Suggestions welcome!
