Hi, I’m returning to dorm life during COVID because I am an RA. I’m going to be spending A LOT of time in seclusion due to online classes and quarantine, so I’m a little worried about being lonely (since it’s pretty much inevitable).
As someone who relies on her pets for comfort, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about ways to simulate that experience? I have plenty of plants (and am cultivating a Venus fly trap since that’s the closest to a pet) so don’t bother telling me to get one, I’ve been there already! Any other idea would be totally welcome though, from stuffed animals to a virtual website like Webkinz. I’m very desperate.
My dorm is strictly no pets allowed, I’ve even asked if I can get my therapist to sign off on an emotional support animal but no dice. Not even fish or reptiles, unfortunately.
Thank you so much for helping be avoid becoming stir crazy, lol.
