I am not big on socialising. Living with 10 people means that I have to socialise, however, at least in some way, every day. And living with 10 people means that I have developed pretty good social skills. But, that doesn’t mean I like to talk to people. Or, rather, that I would prefer not to most of the time. Sometimes I enjoy it and I’ve even been known to crave someone to talk to. But, in general, I tend to avoid any unnecessary socialising. After doing the shopping today and seeing an old friend outside the shop, I stayed to chat as I hadn’t seen him in a while and he had his 10 month old daughter with him, who I had never met. We talked for almost an hour, I’d say. Upon walking home, I thought, “Right, that’s my socialising done for the month!” And, yes, I do realise it’s the 1st of the month. As I’m nearing my house, I see a guy walk from next door, straight into my front yard. He had a clip board. Oh, boy.
He ended up being a salesman (I was right) and works fora company that I was interviewed by in late 2012. Since I was going to uni at the time, though, I couldn’t work the full-time hours they wanted me to. But this guy was really nice and I had a cigarette with him and a chat about things that actually had nothing to do with what he was selling. Anyway, he gave me the number for the company and told me that they have a new manager now and that I should apply. Since they always need people and tattoos are acceptable, I might just reapply. But I’m not a good salesperson. And it’s door-to-door stuff. All that socialising! Ack! Not to mention the fact that anyone who answers the door could be, well… terrifying.
Maybe I could apply for an office position if they have one going. I bought a lovely little journal today. I’m attracted to such things. I was looking at all of them. Opening up all the the different patterned ones, and different shaped ones, knowing that it all looked identical on the inside. Then I saw a brown one. And I had to have it.
