No Plans Tonight!

After 7 evenings straight of social commitments (sometimes multiple events in one night), I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to stay at home and interact with no one except E tonight.

I have been getting more and more exhausted with each evening of social fun.

I would prefer to stay home and avoid the office today for many reasons, but the largest one is I'd rather avoid all smalltalk for at least 24 hours.

This weekend? After I recover? We've got 2 parties to attend. I am actually slightly relieved that I will be required to miss one due to work.

One of the greatest things about summer is that the warm weather makes people more likely to go out and interact with each other. Summer, for me, means barbeques and opportunities to see friends I haven't seen in at least a year.

And yet, the thing that's got me most excited about this weekend is the one-on-one runs with 2 good friends and the alone-time I've got scheduled for the garden.

It's times like these that I am convinced that I'm definitely an introvert.

Wow, your life is the opposite of mine. You have so many scheduled plans, but when you have none, you can relax. I hardly schedule anything, but when I have "free time" I feel guilty because I should be studying for quals. :)

Huh. I don't know what it would be like to have so much free time. Perhaps I should try to schedule it [grin].

In other news, a friend told me today that if I attend 8 events in 7 days I cannot consider myself an introvert. Period.

I tend to disagree, but I do see his point. I'm certainly on the edge, if, as I believe I am, I am one.
