Title: U -- Unusual
Tags:
Blog Entry: Well, it's been hard to find a "U" item for my blog. But...here's an 'unusual' one:    U--Unusual.   I think I'm unusual. Maybe not. But, here's why I think so.   I refuse to "act my age". I 'feel' young, so why not act it?  I've always believed if you keep your brain active, you'll be fine. So, I try to do that with my different hobbies. I like to keep learning. That's another key to 'staying young'. As most of you know, one of my favorite hobbies is playing with graphics & using my graphics to design my pages here at NOTH.  If you've checked out my Group, Playing With Graphics, you'll see some of my 'efforts'.  I'm always looking for new ways to spice up plain graphics. Another way I feel I'm unusual: I'm a 'homebody'. I'm quite happy spending the day playing around on the computer, either reading, writing, or making graphics.  I don't need to be constantly "on the go". I think that's why 'going out' is more special to me.  I'm very happy to go out to eat, or walk around the mall--occasionally.   I know people who simply can't stand "staying home" all day.  That's not me.  And I'm happy with my 'own company'.  I don't need to be around a lot of people all the time. Yes, I do enjoy doing things with friends and just visiting with friends.  But I don't need that daily. My husband is a very outgoing person; he likes going to a friend's house to watch ballgames on Sunday; so, I enjoy having Sunday afternoons to myself. I can do whatever I want: catch up on chores, or just sit down and read.  He also likes sitting outside whenever the weather allows--and chatting with all the different neighbors who pass by.  I prefer being 'inside', where it's 'cozy', lol. If a neighbor wants to stop by and visit me, they are welcome to come inside.  Well, naturally, in 'good weather' (not too hot or too cold) I will also sit ouside and visit.  However, I get bored just sitting and "watching traffic" (as I often say to him). I 'usually' end up coming inside after a while--unless we've got company.  So, you might say I'm an introvert (I plead guilty)--or unsociable (not!). It's just that I can usually find something to do on my own, if no one is around.   So...am I unusual?  Who knows?  (or cares, lol)
