Introvert Goes to a Party

I’ve been getting requests for workshops for over three years before I finally started it.  I told Ponggo that I might be the introvert of introverts because while everyone already had their watercolor and lettering sessions, I was deathly afraid to face people.  Well, apparently, introverts can be trained.  As long as I get to stick to a structure, I guess I’m fine. (Speaking of workshops, you may find the new scheds here.)

Anyway, I still find myself having some sort of anxiety before meeting a bunch of people especially when it’s a party.  Ponggo is usually annoyed that I always bail out last minute or I get agitated and restless before we leave when we have to face a new crowd. Questions like these run through my head:

What do I actually say?
What if I end up randomly blurting something tactless or senseless?
*Well, I usually do anyway.  Come to think of it, what is there to fear, no?*
What do I do?
What will happen when there’s dead air and Ponggo is nowhere to be found? (You know, he can be a social butterfly on cue).

How the Introvert Parties

Anyway, if & when I get past that stage when I decide that it’s okay to go to a party, I end up enjoying it anyway.  Sometimes, I even end up being the most talkative person too. 😛
I know that half of you might probably find this weird but if you’re an introvert, you totally get what I mean and you’re most likely the type who looks for a fellow agoraphobic soul whom you can cling to the entire time you’re in a public setting. 🙂

Good luck to us on the next party! 🙂

Haha I get what you mean! I also tend to find someone to cling to, but I’m quite glad I’ve become a little bit more outgoing than my younger self. Whew, events can be quite tiresome for introverts, don’t they? 😀

I totally get what you mean Tipsy! As weird as this might sound, I see parts of myself in you. It’s exciting when you find parts of yourself in someone else. ^_^ The difference is that what you express with your art I express in words. I think. I am an introvert myself and I used to be so scared and anxious about parties and social situations where I might end up like a wall flower. Oh and yes that much irritating dead air. Tsk. That somehow changed when I got myself to attend an event and fly all on my own for the first time. I got anxious but it ended up awesome! Maybe we should have an introvert party so we can meet up with kindred souls? But that sounds ironic though. Haha!
