    I've only done the virtual meeting thing five times so far.

    I was reluctant at first, but it actually turned out to be kind of fun.

    But I think that's because three of the calls were with groups of long term friends that I hardly ever see, even when there's not a pandemic.

    The fourth time was with a new 'mentee' for the mentoring program I volunteer for, so that was kind of fun too.

    My fifth virtual meeting experience was for a job interview, so that was positive as well.

    However, I can see how people can get burned out.

    Last night, I virtually met with a bunch of the aforementioned friends, and we were on for 90 fricking minutes. My eyes were tired. My brain was tired.

    With these virtual meetings, everybody is facing each other so it's like you constantly have to be 'on.'

    I'm really interested in how those work.

    I very much enjoyed the beadweaving classes that I used to take, not only for the creative outlet, but because it was nice to sit there with a bunch of other ladies.

    The group dynamics were entertaining and the quiet chit-chat was nice.

    I was wondering if I could find a virtual beadweaving circle, but then I wondered if it would even work.

    I have refused to Zoom. A few video calls have crept through. Didn't like them much either.

    Inhuman and definitely not instinctual.
    You are not a great fan of technology, are you? lol

    Nothing wrong with technology. Have to use it in my work. I simply do not like Zooming!

    None of them!

    As Wiseman mentioned:

    "a number of factors are at play as the format disrupts "normal, instinctual" forms of human communication. Among the sources of stress: constantly seeing an image of yourself, an inability to read body language, a lack of real-time feedback and seeing giant faces on the screen.""

    You are right Wiseman.

    However, some probably love it, and may happily spend hours in a Zoom chat.

    I did try it but found it rather eerie to tell the truth. You know: "Ground control to Major Tom". LOL.

    There is not too too much we can do right now to help anyone having issues but we do chat and crochet and or knit.

    🦙🐐💻🐐🦙 "Invite a llama or goat to your next corporate Zoom meeting or video call for under $100.

    An animal sanctuary in Silicon Valley called Sweet Farm is letting people pay to get llamas, goats, and other farm animals to tune into their video calls for under $100"

    Funny, innovative, exploitative, typical or just plain...🤪? Could be quite funny.
