I've made no bones about it that I have become an alarmingly introverted. For the most part, it sickens me to leave the house. This can probably be attributed to some mental problem or something. I don't know much about mental illness. I'm usually too busy tapping doorframes and pulling out the hair from my head strand-by-strand to research that kind of junk.

So I make plans and I dread them. I always dread them.

What's my problem? My friends want to spend time with me, and for some reason I hate it.

It's not even the actual events. After I drag myself to these get-togethers, I invariably have a great time. I went out karaokeing on Friday and didn't want to leave. Last night I played a game and watched a movie with my best friend. These are fun things and I always tell myself that next time I am not going to be so wretched about the whole thing.

It don't work.

I received a message from Lauren Gohde today telling me to update my Robot Hand Internet Web Site. If you enjoyed this post, you have Lauren Gohde to thank, and you should probably give her some flowers and some candy. If you did not enjoy this post and wish I had just stayed away from the Internet, you have Lauren Gohde to thank, and you should probably punch her in the bowels.

I would prefer you give her presents though, to be quite honest.

I have the same problem whenever one of my friends wants me to go to lunch with them or in any other way go out in public. Then, just like yourself, I end up having fun and asking myself why I didn't want to spend time with them. I don't think it's introversion...

What do I know though, I'm a crazy lunatic who happens to be pretty introverted.

MIKE!!! thanks for the kudos...although at this point i'd take flowers or punches....i hope you get better...sometimes i get in a mood where i dont want to be around anyone either...it's part of life....this whole post-grad life thing is a hugeangous change for everyone and it's hitting me hard too...think about that as a possible reason for all your introvertedness....

even if the idea is too much for you. . . i hope coffee is in line soon. . . you got a shout out on my blog today. . .
i feel that way sometimes too. . . here at wc im pretty good about forcing myself out pretty regularly (especially with all the shit that goes on in the theatre) and despite dragging my heels, i enjoy most of it. . .
i think it might be a comfort thing. . . generally im just so comfortable in my little bubble on earth that leaving it is alot of effort. . .
i miss you!
