For Introverts, Gregariousness is Optional

I’m a homebody. I think many of my friends, family and co-workers don’t understand what that means. The definition is as simple it sounds “a person who prefers staying at home.” When I was in college I did attend quite a few parties and football games; I even helped start a tailgating tradition that is still going to this day. College were my gregarious years, all that is different now. I am, undoubtedly, an introvert and for introverts, gregariousness is optional.

And the Geeks Have Inherited the Earth!

Remember us; from 20 years ago? I know you do. We were the daily mugging. It was never about the lunch money or the dress shirts. We were bullied because we were smarter than you, because we could thrive without trying, because you felt threatened by us. We warned you to be kind to us because you should feel threatened. We had many mantras. “Be nice to geeks, you’ll probably end up working for one” “Geeks, will one day, inherit the Earth.” “Geeks rule the World” Well now the geeks have inherited the Earth, and we remember! Our minds are steel traps. We haven’t forgotten who bullied [… Click to Continue …]
