I've always preferred to have a small circle of friends. I'm not a great fan of things changing when there's nothing wrong with the way things work or are going. I would much rather spend a quiet evening at home than go out. As much as I love my extended family, I often dread having to go to family functions.
I've always described myself as a loner. My family has always described me as being shy. It turns out I'm an introvert. I never really thought the term applied to me until I saw the picture below on Facebook. Nearly every item resonates with me.
