You know you’ve gotten acclimated to the weather when you’re outside in just above freezing weather wearing a t-shirt and sweating. (I can’t believe I was that stoic. Or stupid.)
Caring for Your Introvert. “Introverts are not necessarily shy…rather, introverts are people who find other people tiring.” Exactly! I hate it when people are telling me how quiet I am or that I’m shy or that I need to talk more. I talk when I’m good and ready! It’s annoying when all the extroverts out there tell me to get out more and open my mind and to go to social gatherings to meet new people. I’m not against meeting new people. Nor about having an open mind. Sometimes I wonder if it isn’t the other way around, because extroverts always blab and never listen to the other side of the story. And you know, that gets really tiring. If I wanted to listen to a lecture, I’ll go to a class or a seminar where I actually learn something.
Just Shut Up. (via Blogdex) I wonder if this was influenced by the above article? Anyways, this column is not about burying your head in the sand. It’s about the proliferating drivel out there on pro-war, anti-war, and pseudo-profundity. I liked it because I would never have the temerity of telling anyone to “shut up” especially if something’s written and I have the choice of not reading it.
