It's Saturday! School has been exhausting so I plan on relaxing this weekend. I got invited to a Super Bowl party but I don't think I'm ready for that yet.
This may sound silly but when I go to functions -- and I don't know anything about the basic point of the function -- I can come across as being snooty. The truth is I'm pretty shy. And I'm tall for a girl (5' 10") so I stand out like a sore thumb... a sore thumb with giant glasses.
Instead of going out I'm going to stay in and finish my book or watch TV. When I go out and talk to people they think I'm kidding about not knowing the things I don't know. I'm not. My first 17.5 years were spent growing up on an organic farm with no computers or TV or even newspapers. I wasn't being shielded from life, though. My parents encouraged me to learn but they wanted it to be the hard way: through actual experience and reading books. So yeah, maybe I am a bit of an oddity.
I promised myself that I'd learn something new about this big, bold new world everyday until I wasn't SUCH an oddity. If anyone has advice I'm all ears. I'll treasure your comments and take them to heart.
