10 Thoughts Of An Introvert

  1. My bed is calling out to me, I’d better not have to go out somewhere tonight.
  2. Ugh, I want to go to a really cool jazz bar and just party it up.
  3. I haven’t left the house in days…
  4. Drunk guy next to me on the train, don’t you DARE start a conversation.
  5. Oh god the phone’s ringing. Quick, rehearse the first 3 lines of what you’re going to say in your head before picking up!
  6. Can I do all the things people do to get all dolled up for a big event, but just not go?
  7. God I’m so lonely.
  8. I fucking love being the centre of attention though, gimme that limelight. All of it.
  9. I really like being alone.
  10. God, I need a cat.

If any of you have these thoughts on a regular basis – holler at me! I’ll be here with my cup of tea, duvet and imaginary cat. Probably watching cat videos or listening to Michael Buble’s latest album. You go girl.

  1. If we can change cat to dog, I’m with you! It’s hard because when I’m out, I usually enjoy myself, although that might have a lot to do with the fact that I’m more selective about what I say yes to now. Often people don’t believe I’m an introvert, but once I’ve used up my social energy, I’m done. Done with people until I can recharge. If I go past that point it drains me like you wouldn’t believe.

  2. Ha! All that and more.

    Boss says “just pick up the phone and ask so and so for a quotation….”

    Me ‘pick up the phone?”

  3. Love this post! This is so me! I am so terrible at any form of small talk or conversations with strangers when I am not prepared. Like today, a dog walker said to me…Is it okay for your dog to play, because her dog was there. And rather than say just yes or no, I’m like…no worries and kept walking.
    And I go from wanting to be super sociable to suddenly needing to hideaway. xx

  4. I love this – I, too, am an introvert. I can relate to a lot of these. It’s not like I dislike people, I just really need to recharge in complete solitude. My husband and I call it “kels-time.” Whenever it’s been a few weeks since I’ve had a good day all to myself, I get needlessly grumpy. That’s when he grabs a book and finds a coffee shop so I can get some much needed “kels-time.” 🙂

    1. That recharge time is crucial! Haha that’s so adorable that your husband knows exactly what to do when you’re having a grumpy day, though I can vouch for the fact that the cues are probably not hard to pick up! 😀 xx

  5. Fab post as ever. Im a weird one. I have days when I am really want to embrace my inner hermit and stay indoors with my cat, and days when Im party central and want to see the world and all its people! The 10 points you have wrote, is literally the conversation that goes on in my head every day haha. I do enjoy my own company though, and need time by myself or I feel suffocated. Great post xx

  6. I often think I need a cat too & I also rehearse what I’m going to say, but then the conversation goes in a completely different direction ?

  7. This made me chuckle ! “Can I do all the things people do to get all dolled up for a big event, but just not go?” – that’s something I was thinking just the other day!!
