I am visiting my “undisclosed location” this weekend, so, obviously, I’ll be giving my computer a break for a majority of the weekend. Today, I’d like to write a rather personal blog post for you guys. Some parts of it are good … and some parts of it are bad. It will sort of tell you guys why I haven’t been out and about a lot this year. The reason may surprise you a little bit.
I am what is called an “introvert.” An “introvert” is a person who likes to be alone for long periods of time. I can now say that I am an “introvert.” While I love to talk to you guys both online and in person a lot, I do like to be alone on some occasions. When it comes to being alone, I sometimes enjoy it. It depends on the situation, of course. Sometimes it’s good … and sometimes it’s bad.
This year, you may not have seen me going to certain places and events. Well, that’s because I can’t really tolerate being in large crowds for long periods of time. I also can’t tolerate loud music for long periods of time, either. I can probably go somewhere if it will not be very crowded … and I can go somewhere if the music will not be too loud. Those were a few of the reasons why I was not able to go to certain events this year, like McSummerfest and the Mardi Gras Dance. Now, last year, I was able to go to McSummerfest for just a few minutes … and I did go to the Mardi Gras Dance last year, but I was not able to stay the entire time.
Also, this year, I have not been able to take my evening walks around National Hill on a daily basis. It sort of depends on my mood. I’m trying not to take too many walks around my neighborhood anymore … and I’m also trying to give me some time to myself in the late afternoon and early evening hours. It’s nothing personal. Thank you all for your understanding. Of course, we will continue to remain friends for a long time, whether or not I am a true “introvert.” Sometimes, I’m proud to say that I am an “introvert.” I like you guys a lot, but I need some time to myself so I can talk to you guys both online and in person.
Enjoy your day, my friends!
