eh :(

August 2nd, 2008 at 01:30 pm

So, I made the fruit salad. I thought it turned out pretty good - colorful.

I went to the vegetarian/vegan brunch meetup. I think I was the only one who had any fruit salad. Oh well - I'm going to take it to my mom and stepdad's tonight.

The food was good. There were maybe about 13 people all together. Everyone seemed pretty friendly and everything. But . . you know how sometimes there are like two or three people who talk non-stop? Yeah, there were a couple of those kind of people there.

If I'm in a group of people I know well, or especially in a smaller group of more like 4 or 5, I can be talkative. But get me in a group of people I don't know, esp. when there are a couple of non-stop talkers - I end up having little to nothing to say.

I'm kind of reminded about why I didn't keep going to these group things before. My first reaction in a new group is quiet, shy, etc. It was so much easier to make friends in school.

heh. I was talking with this one guy. He told me what he did for a living, and then asked me the same thing. Not two seconds after my telling him that I work at an oil and gas company, he was gone. Rolleyes
I checked his profile on the website - he's buhuddist (sp?) so . . just as well.

Here's hoping that my adventure tomorrow at the nursing home will go better.

    I'm the same way in groups, and i don't like it when talkative people monopolize conversations.

    I'm exactly the same way - if it's 3-5 people, I am more outgoing than normal. But if it's much more than that, I tend to fade to the outside. I always get pegged as the "quiet" or "shy" one, even though in reality I'm not really. After a few days of knowing people, I usually end up being one of the more talkative.

    It's really funny how personalities mesh in groups.

    Me too. I just let the talkative person go and stay quiet. At least you have something to share when you head to your moms. Try again and let us know how the nursing home goes. I'm proud of how you are getting yourself out there!! Keep up the good work!

    Sorry it did not go too well, but it could have been worst. It's ok to be a shy around people you don't know some times I think those who don't know you and does all the talking are often trying to make themselves look good
