I used to be one of those pretentious assholes who, when posed the question, ‘What three things would you take with you to a desert island?’ would reply ‘My guitar, a pen and a notebook.’
My reasoning at the time was so I could write songs all day long. At the time, I hadn’t spent the better part of a year writing nonstop. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to write. However, maybe the one thing I’ve learned during this quarantine is that I hate being alone with my thoughts.
So, I want to swap out the guitar or the notebook for Spotify. I don’t know if that counts as one ‘thing’ because it’s a library of many things and we could argue about the parameters of that for hours. It would be like the equivalent of a library of books but it’s still many things contained in one whole collection. Anyway.
Point is, I want to fill my head with thoughts that aren’t my own for at least a little bit of the day. Other people’s thoughts are beautiful and expressive and emotional and they make me feel like I’m not alone.

Tallys: she would abandon the other person immediately and just try to have a peaceful life alone on the island
