The word is SOCIAL. It was chosen by me last week, with something in mind. However, given the way my weekend went, I have needed to modify my thoughts on my SOCIAL life...at least for the purposes of this blog entry!
First, I can tell you that I am neither particularly SOCIAL, nor particularly anti-SOCIAL. But if I had to tip that scale, I'd say maybe a little more anti-SOCIAL in some ways. Mainly because I am shy and often feel slightly SOCIALly inept.
Among my favorite SOCIAL events are ones like this -
A concert, where I can be in a large crowd of people, feeling a part of something big and outside of myself. And yet, there are no expecations from anyone about how I should behave. I sort of enjoy the mix of intimacy and impersonality that a big crowd enjoying something together creates. That is how creatures like me can feel SOCIAL in comfort.
Also, I do think I had SOCIAL networking at the back of my mind as I thought about this word. It is a big pushy item at work....keep up with the SOCIAL networking for the library. We need to get out there and promote ourselves. Blah blah blah. Hopefully it helps and I certainly don't mind doing it.
Thanks for finding me here on a Tuesday evening, doing a Saturday morning post. I am just a SOCIAL rebel like that...and I know that you are too. I will tag Jasen for this week...sorry it is so late!!!
Stop in tomorrow for some Choose and Defend Wednesday too! Thanks :)
