I wrote the above post in a moment of inspiration. You see, if you are not an introvert chances are that you will not understand my point. You will think that I can probably make an effort and get out of my comfort zone and fake it until I make it. And you know what? You are right! Yes, you are. But at the end of the day I will be exhausted! Exhausted to the point that my head will be spinning and my eyes will be closing like I haven’t slept in days.
I am wondering daily why do I have to make such great efforts just to be accepted by complete strangers. When I was in school I was almost always alone in a corner and I was either reading my books or just daydreaming. And I could see people staring at me. And their loud voices were really bothering my ears. And when ‘they invited’ me to be part of their circle I was highly uncomfortable. Because I was not like them. When I was trying to say something I was cut off by some loud voice like what I had to say was not important. So why? Why be part of a group and why bother to fit in if it’s not who I am?
While introverts try to fit in and try so hard to be accepted and be part of social gatherings, extroverts make no efforts what’s so ever to even try and understand us. They think that we are just strange. I was actually told once that I’m just strange.
So why should I blend in when I’m happy in my corner? Why should I make myself feel like I’m not enough for people that don’t even bother to understand me?
The answer is that we don’t have to! Introverts don’t have to change who they are and introverts don’t have to excuse themselves for being different. Instead, extroverts should start educating themselves and understand that while they think they run the world, we are quietly making a difference.

You realize you are old when you see this ‘Galentine’s Day’ talk everywhere and you have no idea what this means…I mean…am I the only one that never heard about this until today?!
Google is telling me that this is on for about 10 years now….10 years?! Where was I?! In a cave?!…😴🤔
Apparently ‘Galentine’s Day’ is about celebrating your female friends and this is happening on February 13th. It is not an official holiday (that’s what Google says) so don’t go missing work with the reason that you were celebrating your BFF. 😅 🎂🍰🍾🍸🍹🥂🍷☕🍺🏺
Galentine’s Day !!! What’s next?! And why did I never notice this day before. About 10 years of living in the unknown….Did you ever hear about this day before?! 🤔🥂
When you realize you lost a book or gave it to someone 🙄🤔😥😱 but don’t remember to whom or where it might be and freak out mode is started.
One thing is for sure…I bought the book in 2014 but I can’t find it anywhere. This is such a sad day… #lostbook #books📚 #readerlife #readeremotions 🧚♀️
The thing is that I remember reading it but I don’t remember much about it. So now I’m wondering if I should buy it again and read it again or just give it a bad review because being the fact that I don’t remember about it maybe I didn’t like it much. 🤔 Yet, I’m reading other reviews and people really liked it so maybe it’s not fair to give it a bad review.
This is the second time that I have to buy a book, again, because someone doesn’t give it back to me. It is the last time that this is happening to me. Never again are my books leaving this house without me. 😥
Do you suffer when your books are lost? Did you ever lose a book? 🤔
Thanks for reading!
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s been a long time that I read this book but I liked the suspense and the moments of unknown. The book is intense and keeps the reader on his/her toes.
I found myself bored at times but that could because the genre of the book is not exactly my favorite.
Overall is a great read so if you look for some mystery and if you haven’t seen the movie yet ( 😊 ) I recommend this read.
Thanks for reading.

Quote from “What Color Is Your Parachute? 2019: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers” by Richard N. Bolles –
“It was the best of times, It was the worst of times, It was the age of wisdom, It was the age of foolishness, It was the epoch of belief, It was the epoch of incredulity, It was the season of light, It was the season of darkness, It was the spring of hope, It was the winter of despair, We had everything before us, We had nothing before us, We were all going direct to heaven, We were all going direct the other way… —A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens (1812–1870)”
