The Perils of Being an Introvert in College

Introverts everywhere, we’ve all been there. One of the most important things in the life of an introvert is quiet, preferably alone time, to recharge. For me, this is best done in my room while watching Friends. Yes, I’ve seen every episode several times, at this point it’s just a comfort.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that we introverts hate all sorts of activity. In fact I usually find myself wishing I had more energy for doing things. Since there’s almost always something do do (activities at school, bumming around with friends, club activities, etc). So finding balance is important.

I’ve learned that sometimes I just have to say no to things. Even if it’s something I want to do, I just don’t always have the energy. And not everyone gets it, but many do.

At the same time, sometimes I have to force myself to break the habit of quiet evenings to go out with friends and try something new. Everyone has their own balance, but I find that having time for myself makes me a much better person to be around anyway.
