I like to plan. I’m quite an organised person and I like to know what I’ll be doing at the weekend or planning the things I want to take and do on holiday. It’s part of my nature. I also hate lateness, I’m always on time and it annoys me if I have to wait for someone – don’t they have clocks?!!
Lately, more and more people, seem to be moving the opposite way. Plans are left up in the air, no-one wants to make a decision about a time or place, people fail to respond to emails or messages. It frustrates me so much, I end up not bothering to even try or respond either.
As a result, my social calendar sometimes dwindles but it doesn’t worry me anymore.
As I get older, I don’t feel like trying so hard if people won’t meet me half-way, I refuse to be the one that makes all the effort. I’m happy not going out every Saturday night – been there, done that. I want to relax at my weekend, chill out after a long week at work and endless train journey’s, I just want some peace and me time.
I wish I looked like the above when I’m relaxing but I’m more likely to be in sweats with a big bag of crisps to munch through 🙂
Going out and living it up doesn’t bother me like it used to. I rarely drink now whereas when I was younger, I was completely a binge drinker. I suppose I care about other things and would rather stay in and write my second book than have a wild night out. And you know what, I don’t care if people think that’s boring or that I’m a loner loser, this is me now and I don’t feel the need to pretend otherwise.
Do you have a hectic social life? Are you a planner or do you prefer impulsive activities? Have your social priorities changed as you’ve got older?
