Extroversion Is Exhausting

Meeting up with newly-returned friends like Yuping and Kelly. Meeting up with long-time-no-see friends like the twins and my old classmates. Meeting up with regular partners in vileness the Orgers. Hip-hopping at Phuture. Lindy-hopping at Jitterbugs. Lindy-hopping at Harry’s Bar. Helping the RJC debate team. Attending driving lessons. Attending lectures. The list goes on.

There is an imbalance in the Force. I’m spending too much time out of the house, out of my bed, away from my computer and away from my CD player. The more social life I have, the less inner life I have, because I’m just too beat when I get home to get started on projects like redesigning this site, retouching my digital photos, planning for Alec’s visit in October, and generally keeping up on thinking, reading and listening to music. I haven’t even watched Oprah with my mum for days. :(

I need a doppelganger. Then one of us could be out having a whale of a time with my friends, and the other could be in having a whale of a time tweaking my stylesheets and site code. I could never explain my strongly extroverted Myers-Briggs test result, and still can’t.

  1. *gasp*! First mention of my name in Michelle’s website! *gasp*! Haha. Had fun with you that day. Thanks for showing me the Esplanade and giving me more reasons to love Singapore. I hope to reciprocate that by finding you more reasons to love Singapore…

    I completely understand the exhaustion from extroversion. In the past week of ‘catching up with everyone’, I’ve barely had the time alone, hence my treasuring every minute in the bus/MRT and that 20min waiting for you with my ipod and book. =)
