“I also believe that introversion is my greatest strength. I have such a strong inner life that I’m never bored and only occasionally lonely. No matter what mayhem is happening around me, I know I can always turn inward.”—Susan Cain (via outcamethesun)
Maybe I’m a super mega king size curmudgeon, but that thing with the woman who rests her head on strangers on the subway because she’s all like “I feel like we have a bond now” is not the least bit endearing to me. Do not invade my personal space so you can take a picture for your “art project” or…
Agreed. If anything I think it speaks to how different people react to having that space invaded, which isn’t all that interesting to begin with. I’d have made like that first woman and got the fuck up out of there.
Semi-related: I went on a rare excursion to a factory outlet while I was out of town, and the girl behind me in line would NOT GET OUT OF MY ASS. She kept bumping the shit she was holding into my back, and shuffling around me to look at various crap along the way. I’m not a violent person but I was this. close. to elbowing her in the neck. BACK UP DICKBAG. It’s one thing to do this unintentionally because you weren’t raised right and are an obnoxious plebe or whatever but to do it on purpose? nope.
do you ever cook something in the microwave but it’s still really cold in the middle and you just keep eating it instead of heating it longer because life is pointless and entropy is unavoidable and the universe is filled with callous and casual destruction
