We went to a party the other night and Ponggo had to park our car some blocks away from the venue. I was about to enter the club and then I saw a sea of people whom I didn’t know & I got terrified. I’m usually feel just okay when I’m surrounded by a crowd and even hyper & uber happy especially when I know them so well. But for that night, I thought, “Oh no! I must wait for Ponggo!” I just realized that during social occasions, Ponggo is kind of my shield. I let him do the talking while I just don my sheepish clueless & polite smile while over-analyzing things and thinking of what I’m supposed to say and what I’m not supposed to say. Sometimes, I just conveniently grin while I’m still busy fighting the fan girl in me especially when I finally get to meet my favorite artists!
A part of me was screaming, “That’s why I blog…because I’m comfortable with the fact that I can just spew out my thoughts but no one can see me. And oh, the laptop doesn’t talk back either.” If I had a soundtrack for that moment, then these lines would be playing:
♩♪ Day after day, I must face the world of strangers where I don’t beloooooong…I’m not that strong ♫♬
I just realized how much of an introvert I still am. I thought I was going to be able to outgrow it sometime in my life. I thought I somehow evolved but apparently, the only thing that has changed in the past decade or so is the fact that Ponggo is usually beside me during social events and when I don’t know what to do, I don’t have to pretend to be busy with my phone while walking towards a random direction or hiding inside the bathroom!
P.P.P.S (Seriously, how many P’s will I be able to get away with?) Ola! The nominations for the Globe Tatt Awards 2013 is now open! 🙂 Time to nominate your favorite bloggers and personalities from the www! 🙂
