It's been a busy couple of days and I still have paperwork to do, but for now I'm gonna chill in my hotel room and watch Drake and Josh #introverting #timetointrovert #fancyhotel #welcometomylife #tomorrowisthebigday #graduation

Our electricity has been out since ~2:00 today. Sooo...we left the house to enjoy some games and beer and grab dinner out. Now we are back home and I’m in bed under a mountain of blankets reading. I have an early morning and exciting day ahead of me tomorrow!! Fingers crossed the power comes back on sometime tonight 🀞🏻

wherever you go, there you are

One of my favorite activities to do solo - treating myself to an afternoon movie. No conceding to anyone else's seating choices, movie options, timing, schedules. It's the best! #tryit #introverting

β€œThe Guest house”

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond. -Rumi

Why is this? As if public speaking, or even just sharing ideas, isn’t hard enough already!

Those people are rare, aren't they?

I'm firmly on the introverted end of the introvert-extrovert spectrum (hello hiding out in bathroom stalls during networking events 🚽). This means that while I cherish time with friends and truly enjoy meeting and chatting with all the wonderful people who stop by my craft fair booths, I also need to do nothing by myself for a good 3-8 hours afterwards before I have the energy to hang out again. Meanwhile, my bestie @amltan is an extrovert (she calls me on the way home from work (just to chat! 😳) and other inexplicable things). Over the years, we've had lots of conversations about understanding each others' needs so that we both feel loved and heard. Working on a new zine on how to care for the introverts in your life, inspired by my own experiences and conversations. To all my fellow introverts (who are probably also more comfortable sharing over @instagram than in real life) or extroverts, or anyone really, what else would you add / want people to keep in mind?
