Weekly Blog April 30th, 2017: Problems with Being an Extrovert

Hello Internet!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a very busy week. Unfortunately that seemed to cut into my writing and ended up delaying this past week’s Pokemon chapter. If you’re following the series, I hope you didn’t miss it. For this upcoming week, I’m hoping that everything will be on time! There will also be a special May edition of the Weekly Blog tomorrow so keep tuned for that! Now onto the actual subject of today’s Weekly Blog!

Now this week I had a very busy week full of mostly work, writing, and trying to squeeze in a little free time. But honestly this week was very stressful and I found myself feeling kind of alone and isolated. To give you a little insight into my life, most of my time either consists of me being at work or being at home. I recently picked up some hours at work which has cut into my free time. This paired with my friend’s work schedules being totally different than mine has led to a lack of time spent together. It’s no one’s fault. That’s just how the adult world works. Everybody gets jobs, significant others, new homes, etc. and the time you spend together becomes less and less. Its a major bummer.

Now to give you a little more insight into my life, I consider myself a pretty extroverted person. I’m not the life of the party or the loudest person in the room, but I’m still someone who likes going out, doing things, and interacting with people. One comparison I’ve heard which summaries introverts and extroverts which I think is pretty accurate is that introverts being tired when around others and recharge their energy when they are alone, while extroverts get energy from being around others and being tired when they spend too much time alone. The latter one definitely descries me. I have a thin shell you have to break through, but as soon as that’s broken, I’m loud and outspoken. I love talking to people on the phone, I love when I have four or five different text conversations going on, and I actually love meeting new people even though there might be a little awkward to start. I get my energy from other people and when I spend too much time alone, I become lonely and it drains on me. Now sometimes I have no problem with being alone and spending some personal time reading, writing, watching YouTube, or whatever. In general I like being around other people and when I’m with them, I feel more energized then when I am all by myself. So all this alone time was really dampened my mood which compounds on itself when I have too much to think.

Anyway my week has been kind of meh this week and that’s also led to a lack in creativity on my part. I’m hoping to turn that around! Hopefully I can carve out some time to hang out with my friends, get out of the house (other than going to work), and have some fun experiences that help boost my mood. Or something like that.

I hope you enjoyed that Weekly Blog post and I hope you come back tomorrow for another Blog post! There will also be another Pokemon chapter this week and a Writing Prompt piece that I’m pretty excited for (if everything comes out like I have planned). I’d love for you to interact with me either through views, likes, and comments here on the website, or on Facebook or Twitter! So please check out those platforms as well. I often post updates on delays or changes to the schedule on those, so stay informed and check out both the website and the social media pages.

Thanks for all your support and I hope you have a wonderful week!!
