5 Times I Hate Being An Introvert

I'm tired of being tired.

5 Times I Hate Being An Introvert

Sometimes, I just wonder what it would be like to be extroverted. As a true introvert, I occasionally have bouts of internal conflict where I love being introverted but also despise it. Here are 5 moments that make me hate being an introvert:

1. When I look up to someone who is extroverted as inspiration.

Some people you just look at and consider their ability to spend time with many different people as one of their odes to success.

2. At a party or event where you know people but you’re already drained from your previous encounter with people.

Can I just please recharge quickly so that I can enjoy my time here like everyone else seems to be?

3. Your friends calling you out but you need to have your own time.

Sometimes I make plans but I really hate the conflict of not wanting to leave my house much less my room. I feel bad and I might even feel lonely, but I am so tired and need to be by myself.

4. When people get upset at you for not hanging out with them.

I’m really sorry. I can’t handle this well at times. Somethings just drain me and I need to be in a relaxing and quiet place that will help me to gather myself better.

5. When you start to credit yourself as a hermit and get depressed over it.

I hate coming to this conclusion, but at times during my heavily introverted phases, I start to wonder why I’m such a hermit. I kick myself for it all the time, and it doesn’t help me to feel any better. I start to wonder what can pull me out of it and it’s just as exhausting to think about remedying your need for alone time.

Being introverted is by no means a bad thing, however, sometimes I wish I were extroverted just so I know what it’s like to be energized by being with people. I truly don’t understand it, but it would be a great perspective.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
