Contrary to yesterday’s blog posts about how great my flat mates are (and spontaneous hair dying), I’m going to talk about how much I need my me time.
The one thing I’ve found I miss the most at university (other than my family and friends and not having to do the washing up) is having time to be completely alone – to sit in silence and not worry that my door’s not closed properly and to sing at the top of my lungs without bothering people and to sit and write on my laptop watching TV in total silence by myself.
I discovered a term a few weeks ago that describes someone between an introvert and an extrovert – an ambivert is someone who likes being social sometimes but also needs time alone. I’m quite happy socialising with people, I like making friends and talking to people (when I’m in the right mood, which hasn’t been a lot recently) but I really need time to be by myself and recharge.
Being with other people is hard work and it takes a lot out of me and this week has been a really long week and I’ve not slept well. I got maybe two hours sleep tops last night and it’s around 8.30pm (when writing) and I’m already tucked up in bed with Krispy Kreme doughnuts and watching YouTube videos and Netflix.
Not at the same time, obviously.
So with that tiredness and bed-state in mind, I shall love you and leave you with another fairly short post. Maybe I’ll have had more sleep tomorrow!
Thank you for reading,
That’s where you’ll find me:
