Why I don’t party

It’s my second month in my job and I’m enjoying myself so far. I have learned lots of things and made lots of new friends as well, and that’s a good thing.

Speaking of friends, I do not go out with my corporate induction batchmates anymore because I feel like they’re too outgoing that I just can’t keep up. Well, I am not aloof, and I am certainly not a snob. It’s just that they’re extroverts, and they never seem to get tired of partying. I mean, I like going out with friends too, but I am picky with the people I want to go with or the activities that we’re going to do; so if I go with certain people it means that I really, really like hanging out with them. Anyway, they go out and drink almost every day after their shifts, not to mention goimg on those monthly out-of-town trips. Although I appreciate it when they invite me, I feel like I’m just not cut out for their party lifestyle. I am not very fond of places where we can’t hear each other because of the loud music, nor do I like the feeling of a hangover. I also don’t like getting drunk and going wild with people I don’t know well, and I feel so drained after one night of partying (even without alcohol) that I feel like I have to sleep the next weekend away to regain my energy.

So what do I like doing? Well, when I go out with friends, we do the same old “quiet” stuff: We eat out, we have long talks about how we’ve been doing, sing karaoke, and drive from the city to wherever province the car can take us. If I’m alone on a weekend, it’s so much simpler: I read, play video games, watch some basketball, and hang out with my pets. They say I’m boring because I spend my weekends like this, but I would rather keep my mind calm and relaxed after a long week at work. I know people of their type feel more rejuvenated when they go out and socialize with people, but I’d rather spend a quiet night by myself or with my closest friends. Oh well, we all have our ways of coping with the stress of everyday work.

  1. I’m exactly the same – my housemates are almost always up for a good night out clubbing, and as much as I like going out, the frequency of which they do it is daunting to me. After a friday night out I like to kind of hide away in my nest on the web or on my DS. I hate having to make the excuse of ‘oh, I’ve no money to go out tonight guys’ because ‘no’ means I get the response of ‘oh you’re boring, you haven’t been out in ages!’ :/

  2. Well, it’s okay to have fun specially after work and weekends are next 😀 Well, how do you call this, it’s normal for working people 😀 HAHAHAHA! I do the same thing as them but not like everyday. I know my limit~ Shush! When I just feel like going out too but out of towns are exceptional. I love going to far away places 😀 of course we have to consider companions and money. But don’t be like avoiding them all the time 🙂 it’s okay if you can’t go 🙂 you’ll get used to it 😀 You’re still on your second month 😀 got a lot of way to go 😀 Good luck! 8D

  3. I can relate to this post. I get where you are coming from :)).Most of the times, I prefer staying inside my room too and doing random stuff. I dislike small talks, I prefer deep talks. (lol so serious) For me, spending time with my closest friends are where I can say the word “fun”.I am a type of girl who seeks meaning in every conversation so dont mind them because, it is the way you are, you gotta embrace it 😉 .Btw, yes im from csb haha hello there fellow la sallian blogger <3
