Definition: Contrary to what most people think, an introvert is  not simply a person who is shy. In fact, being shy has little to do with  being an introvert! Shyness has an element of apprehension, nervousness  and anxiety, and while an introvert may also be shy, introversion  itself is not shyness. Basically, an introvert is a person who is  energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around  other people. Introverts are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They  enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. They often avoid  social situations because being around people drains their energy. This  is true even if they have good social skills. After being with people  for any length of time, such as at a party, they need time alone to  “recharge.” When introverts want to be alone, it is not, by itself, a sign of  depression. It means that they either need to regain their energy from  being around people or that they simply want the time to be with their  own thoughts. Being with people, even people they like and are  comfortable with, can prevent them from their desire to be quietly  introspective. Being introspective, though, does not mean that an introvert never has  conversations. However, those conversations are generally about ideas  and concepts, not about what they consider the trivial matters of social  small talk. Introverts make up about 60% of the gifted population but only about 25-40% of the general population.

I’ve had the weekend to myself, it’s been nice.

Why I felt exceptionally alone today.

You ever have one of those days where you just realize how very alone you are?

Today was like that for me.

I’m not sure why; it was just another regular day for me. I ate breakfast alone. Sat through two classes silently. Did homework alone. Ate lunch alone. Sat through my third class. Did more homework alone. Ate dinner alone. Now I’m going to do my homework alone until I got to sleep tonight. I know I used the word “alone” a lot, but that is because that’s actually what I do. The only interaction I had with anyone today was texting/talking on the phone with my girlfriend, and that’s wonderful—she’s amazing—but she doesn’t fill the void of friends.

Generally, I’m very independent and don’t mind going through my day alone because it allows me to get more done and do things however I want them. But today… I don’t know. I could just feel some weight tugging at my chest and a voice in the back of my head reminding me that I have no friends, no life.

Tumblr makes me feel like I have friends. Holy shit that sounds pathetic, but it’s true.
