I had an interesting conversation with a coworker about why I don't like to socialize much. It's because I'm an introvert:
But there's more... at least for me. 1. Most of the time I'm rather lazy and would rather lounge around at home; 2. I don't like the thought of having to entertain people and wondering if I'm boring them with my company; 3. I don't particularly like to get better acquainted because sometimes I learn things about people that I don't like (sometimes it's better to not know); 4. I hate having to hear people ask me why I'm so quiet (conversation killer anyone?); 5. If people don't know my character than they might get offended by my humour when I get more comfortable and joke around; 6. A lot of activities people like doing (ie. clubbing) aren't my thing; 7. If refuse or decline to join in on an activity then I'm labelled as the party pooper; 8. I prefer being with people who understand me; 9. If I hang out with people 9/10 they will ask me what I'm doing with my life and proceed to tell me what they think I should do- no thanks; and finally and mostly for me, 10. The hardest part of doing something worth doing is getting started.
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy 5 years of blogging for me =)
p.s. My internet is down until a tech guy can come and fix it. Meanwhile I'm bumming off my sister's hotspot wifi.
