P.S. Feel free to share some of your answers below. I’d love to hear from you! 😉
Right from your first line, you hit the nail right on the head.
Nice thing was you did zero boxing in. Not sure if I am the only one, but I like freedom to choose more than anything.
Yes, there are moments when I would enjoy sharing my time momentarily with someone, however, not much more. You kept everything open.
Thank you and enjoy your time, however you wish to spend it. My cats and my music, make the day very much the way I like it right now.
Being able to create something is always a bonus too. Unfortunately most of the materials need to be purchased to get there, hence we always need to “work/slave” to get what we truly love.
I’m extroverted as I’ve posted on your FB page. But I shudder at the thought of going out on NYE (or Hogmanay) as we call it in Scotland). Being out dancing and meeting people is great – but the journey home in the cold is awful! Believe me – you’re not missing much by snuggling up with a book if you live somewhere cold.
I had radiotherapy treatment on my vocal chords in 2018 which hindered my power of speech for some considerable time. Hence I’ve had a more introverted lifestyle hoisted on me. It’s been great! Lovely times spent with one friend or two at a time, listening and finishing conversations before a new person arrives and things are derailed. I don’t think I’ll ever stop being an extrovert, but I have appreciated being on the other side. ?
Btw, thank you for how you allow comments, thank you for making it easy to leave one.
You’re welcome, Anita! 😉
