There’s a perception that I’m a ‘party girl’ but the fact is I’m very introverted*. When I come home I just want to hang out with my fur-babies and when I occasionally put the TV on, it rarely gets past a few minutes of what I’ve recorded before I get distracted.
I don’t drink alcohol (I’d rather eat my calories, than drink them), plus I had a stint in advertising in my 20s and think I got it out of my system.
I don’t drink coffee and rarely eat red meat.
People say, “Oh, you’re sooooo healthy!” Not at all, I just don’t have a palette for any of it.
As I said, my idea of an awesome time is catching up with friends. Especially one-on-one.
* There’s a common misconception about the definition of ‘introvert’ and ‘extravert’. Most think introverts are shy and quiet and extraverts are out-going and loud. Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D, expresses it accurately, “The introvert gets their energy from within, while the extrovert is charged up by people, places and stimuli outside of them.”
