Indeed.

@fabfouremily I'm kind of like that too. But I can be really shy too sometimes. I am the same when it comes to stuff with big crowds, I also need to be alone for a little while afterwards and sometimes activities with big crowds are very tiring for me, because I'm not a spontaneous and very talkative person, only when I'm alone with family or close friends, or if I'm in some interesting discussion. That's why I hate throwing parties myself too, because it's so tiring and also, and I know I shouldn't do this but I can't help it, I'm always worried people aren't enjoying themselves. Which makes the whole thing even more tiring. Gawd I sound like an old lady. I do enjoy going to parties or to a pub or club myself though, but I do have to know someone there, otherwise I'm not going. Luckily people often invite me, and I'm really trying to get out of my shell. I think I've grown a lot on that point though. 

I sometimes worry that I'm too ''old'' for my own good so I do occasionaly force myself to go out, even if I know there will be lot's of people or it's not really my thing. I just make myself because I don't want to be quite like I am. We two sound very alike now you mention you're the same, I thought I'd never ''meet'' anyone similar to me!

 

Im the same however ive stopped forcing myself to go out as its just a nightmare for me and I think for them and why go thru all that?

Haha, yes! I think there are a lot of people like us though, but some won't admit it. 

About what you said..Sometimes I do force myself to go out, because otherwise I'm afraid I'll drift away from my friends because they are experiencing things I don't. I always feel a bit excluded when people are talking about an event I wasn't at and they share their memories and laugh about things I can't laugh about because I wasn't there.

Other times I just stay at home, because like MMM says, what's the point if you're not enjoying yourself and you only annoy other people because you're not enjoying yourself.

1. I don't like walking in front of people, or entering a room/building through a door in front of people.

2. When people pronounce a word wrong and I correct them, but they never remember. (MOM!)

3. When "musicians" from other genres (i.e. hip-hop) say "I'm gonna rock you" or something when they're not even a rock artist/band.

4. When people always confuse the two terms "Rock" and "Rock and Roll". There's a Difference!

5. When people say they don't like The Beatles with no reason given.

6. When people call USB drives "Memory sticks" It's Not Memory! It's storage!

1. For me, the worst thing is having to stand in a line with most of the line behind me.  At least when you're walking it'll be over in a few seconds or a minute at most for the most part.

2. If I had a nickel (or "tuppence" as the Brits say ) for every time my friend still pronounces it "NOO-cue-ler" instead of "NOO-klee-er" after I've corrected him countless times, I'd be rich)

3 and 4. Interesting -- I've never heard any musician or band described as just a "Roll" band (for example, there is the genre "Country and Western" and there are "Country" songs and there are "Western" songs too).

5. Even when they give a reason, it's not good enough.

6.  Isn't human memory storage?

Rock and Roll came before Rock music, it's different, but related styles of music. And yes, human memory is storage, but computer memory is what runs the computer (i.e. My laptop has 159 GB of storage and 8 GB of memory)

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

People thinking you're weird because you don't like to get drunk. I can have fun not getting drunk. Getting drunk is not the key in life to have fun. 

I was actually having a discussion with my mom about this. She told me about how she used to go to this club when she was my age and she was all ''Oh and Pete used to stand in the doorway with a plate with shots and we'd all be drunk in no time and it was so much fun blablabla'' and I was like ''Oh yay, such fun, I bet.'' And she just said something like ''Yeah oh I forgot you don't know what fun is. You never party like that'' I find that such bullshit. I don't know what fun is because I don't get drunk every week? Because it's so much fun to get drunk and have no control about your body and not to be able to remember anything that happened? I just like to be in control of my body. I've been completely wasted only twice and I HATED it. One of those times I spent all night being miserable and vomitting. Can't see the fun in that.

I used to be the designated driver for our broadcasting group in college (people in the broadcasting industry like to party, I guess), and often times they would act "sorry" for me because I didn't drink or "have fun." I had my fun a-hard-days-night-george-10, I just didn't have to suffer from the hangovers. brian-epstein
