Going Nowhere on Purpose

Today has been one of the quiet days and yet my head still has managed to bounce around quite a bit. At least I’m not that emotional today which is quite nice for a change. 

I prefer days when I don’t experience extreme highs or lows. I started to wonder something about myself today while catching up on all the flickr pictures I missed last week.

Everyone is always out and about and doing stuff and I’m always so envious of these pics. Yet, when I think about it really hard, I realize there’s a reason I’m always viewing the world from my monitor and not actually experiencing it.

I might just be one of those people who just doesn’t like doing much. You know, those types who always stay home and just bum around all day and never go out. I might actually like this, to be honest.

As much as I love seeing things, perhaps being a homebody is in my blood. I take the best of both worlds I guess, the convenience of a place I feel safe and comfortable and the sites of things that thrill me to no end.

Well, it was just a thought that passed through my head.. a theory as to why I’m bound to these four walls + two monitors. :)

I'm surprised you managed to do a cruise, and envious actually. Most of my family went on one, but i just couldn't see being away from my house and pets that long without a panic attack. Sounds like you had a great time and got a lot of photos.

i'm most of the time very content to be home and doing my own thing indoors. I'm dying to work from home again. I often have a real need to be alone for a while, just to let my mind empty itself and relax (something that is hard to manage, with a family. its not about shutting people out, after all, its just about getting back in touch with myself).

however, every once in a while, I need to get out in a big way. see something new, in the flesh.

we are introverted, cerebral people. we live in our minds, and there's nothing wrong with that. however, that external stimulus is necessary, i think, to keep the progress going, at least for me.
