I got told I should write things that are a little bit more personal. Sure knowing legal stuff is interesting but it doesn't tell you anything about me I guess. 

Ive got this nifty little app that I'm going to use to remind me to write. Something that I should do more of. Hopefully I'll stick to the plan.  

This now is my concerted effort to write more things about me. Here you go:

When it comes time to leave, I could not be happier. It's rare a social situation that sees me want to stay longer. 

I don't think I've ever found myself thinking, wow- I wish this (insert social event here) could last forever and then some. 

I'm not anti social at all, well, at least I don't think so. I love people. I love watching them. I studied sociology and social sciences for years!

I just prefer my own company. This used to bother me a lot. I felt that I had to be more gregarious and outgoing. In fact, as I continue settling in to my own skin I start to realise that I'm just a complete introvert. 

Actually, in reality I feel like an introvert in a world made for extroverts. So I over compensate. That's ok. I'm still learning how to balance all of this. I've got a strong desire to be liked, like most people, and I guess I've made the connection in my mind that gregarious and outgoing means likeable. Likeable must be good. 

Maybe, but it is personally taxing. Imagine running a marathon daily. That's what it's like to be out in the world when I'd rather be home reading a great book or binge documentary watching. 

I guess an angel's face is tricky to wear constantly.
