Jen sits in bed to talk to you about how she’s still seriously quarantining and can’t stand people who have to go bars. She talks about how she misses when people seemed to be caring about the little things - and how everything now is back to an insane concept of normal - full of the same hustle culture. Jen also talks about her parents sneaking off to a casino but being horrified by the behavior of others, and how at least women aren’t told to smile on the street as much anymore.  Get lots of bonus content including the weekly video stream of this show on PATREON at https://www.patreon.com/jenkirkman Having Funlessness is part of the Sklarbrocountry Podcast Family! https://www.sklarbrocountry.com/podcasts/ To buy a mask (proceeds go to Covid-19 related charities) click here: https://tinyurl.com/y8ew3kd6 To get Jen’s anxiety tips email click here: http://jenkirkman.com/jens-blog/anxiety-help To buy Jen’s comedy album “I’m Gonna Die Alone…” click here: https://music.apple.com/us/album/im-gonna-die-alone-and-i-feel-fine/1459245625 To stream Jen’s comedy album “I’m Gonna Die Alone…” click here: https://open.spotify.com/album/6li8Fxzhc8eB7yxFkoKtqd To buy Jen’s comedy album “Just Keep Livin’” click here: https://astrecords.com/collections/digital-albums/products/just-keep-livin To stream Jen’s comedy album “Just Keep Livin’” click here: https://bstlnk.to/JustKeepLivin To send a listener email to the podcast write to: iseemfun at gmail dot com  Follow the podcast on Twitter: @jenkirkmanpod Follow the podcast on Instagram: @jenkirkmanpodcast
