Maybe I AM An Introvert

I've always thought of myself as a very extroverted person. I'm friendly, talkative, social, all of those things that they say extroverts are.

But I also really value my alone time. I kind of like being in my head. It's a nice place and nobody judges me there. Sometimes I like taking a little hiatus from life, being alone, and not answering phone calls or emails within minutes of receiving them like I normally do. I just briefly lose interest in interacting with my surroundings. Sometimes it lasts for a few hours, other times for a few days. I write better when I'm in one of these moods.

Does that ever happen to you?

I also don't really care for parties. Being around large groups of people is often not something I find appealing. I much prefer hanging out with one or two people to a large group. But with those few, I am open, animated, and engaging.

I have a full face of makeup on today. And very little desire to go anywhere with it. Even places that I would normally find very appealing, like the mall. Hooray for online shopping.

New Stuff

What is it that makes us wake up and decide we need new ________ ?

I've been on the hunt for a new eyeliner brush for a good week now, despite owning tons of brushes. But no, I don't own one like that and I need one.

What makes us decide...I need new jeans. I mean. Really. How many of us buy one or two pairs and then wear them until they fall apart and thus create a real 'need' for new jeans?

But sometimes we just decide... I need new jeans/eyeliner brush/shoes/purse/earrings etc. whatever it is.

I don't know where I'm really going with this one. I just find it funny. If I don't get the new thing I have decided I need, I hunt for it. Thought of it consumes me. For a few days. Then it's just gone because I need something else. Weird, I know.
