    and they're coming with me to my siblings fashion show the next day. Yet I feel like cancelling everything and just staying home, I haven't been in the best mood due to some thoughts. I just don't want to be around anyone for a while. I want to lay down all day and just sort and...

    Going out is overrated.

    This is my ideal day: Don't change out of PJs all day, don't leave the couch, stay on the computer all day, watch TV, and eat pizza.

    and being out with friends. I've gotten to the point to where time by myself just feels so good.

    I really want to go to my works Holiday Party,

    but I am the only single person. I feel like it will be really awkward when everyone else is married or dating someone. This is the only part of being single that I don't like.

    I've never understood the concept of being

    I don't understand the general idea of going

    I suppose I'm partly shy,

    and partly happy with my own company. I don't really have close friends and am happy to sit in my room playing with the computer or reading or whatever. Why do people think this is weird behaviour? I just don't like noisy clubs or bars

    Granted I always complain

    or state I'm lonely. But going out is to nerve wracking for me. Yes I'll do ocassional walk along river or local water hole. But if more the 5 people are in there time for me to leave and come home. Tired of society and all their bs.

    Sometimes I force myself out though,

    but halfway through the night I always realize that I'm 10x happier just spending the night in with my boyfriend. I hate that if I don't go out a certain amount that I'll be mocked for having no life.

    I'd much rather do that at night than go out to a party or to watch a movie. I have a lot of anxiety, so even going somewhere with my closest friend is intimidating. Going out takes so much effort, you have to look nice, smell nice, act nice. I'd rather just be at home...
