People party differently, or rather, some do not. Since we are social animals, getting together to celebrate or enjoy is pretty much a done thing everywhere. Some people (like me) however do not like crowds that much, I’d rather have a book to read and a computer to be by than dancing and singing with much more gregarious people. That’s not to say I don’t like people, in fact I find them fascinating, but I find direct continous communication somewhat stressing. It’s one of the reasons why I like email and text-chats, and one of the major reasons why I prefer online forums to actual live meetings. I can speak in a crowd impromptu, but it takes more out of me than say, a group-email that conveys the same facts. I don’t have an issue with me being like this, I rather enjoy the way I am ;-).
What I have an issue with is the fact that some people who do party (and caps all the way for that), consider that I’m somehow not normal. This short trip that I was on last week put on the table something I’ve realized for some time now: people enjoy life differently, and I’m in the minority.
For the people above, here’s a live and let live premier.
