Lately, my social schedule has been pretty busy. I enjoy having stuff to do, seeing my friends, partying with them, hanging out with them, helping them out or having them help me out. I enjoy keeping close touch (though I admit I’m not very good at it when it comes to some long distance friendships) and regularly touching base.

Having said that, I’m also noticing that with time, my introverted nature is getting more pronounced and that the moments that I need to lock myself away and spend time by myself are coming around more frequently. Whether it’s gaming, coding something, watching some television or reading a book, these moments become more valuable as time goes on.

I wonder if this is because at my advancing age I am simply less capable of toughing it out and red-lining my social life, or whether my introverted nature is getting more entrenched, like a river etching itself into the bedrock. Regardless, I want to apologise to anyone if I haven’t been keeping in touch with you as regularly as I should, or haven’t been as socially available as before.

It’s not you, it’s me.
