Life of a Blogger: Introvert or Extrovert and Guilty Pleasures

This lovely meme was created by Jessi over at Novel Heartbeat!

Am I an Introvert or an Extrovert?

I am definitely an introvert.  I hate people.  I really do.  We are a selfish species and it annoys the shit out of me.

But, along with my hatred, I also have anxiety.  Social phobia.  It's literally to the point where I don't have my license, it's difficult for me to even think about getting a job, I almost didn't graduate high school five years ago and it took me four years to graduate from a two year college because I kept dropping classes that I felt uncomfortable in.

I would much rather stay in on a Friday night then go out.  I mean, I'm 22 almost 23 actually, and I haven't been to a bar, I haven't gotten drunk, I haven't had a sip of alcohol.  But I mean that's really personal preference if I'm being honest.

I love books *shocker* and TV shows and movies and music.  And I can enjoy that all in the safety of my own home.

Don't get me wrong, I love going out and doing things.  I love going on vacation and long rides but I just hate places with large crowds of people and no where to go.

Guilty Pleasures

1.  5 Seconds of Summer

I'm pretty new to the 5SOS family.  They are an Australian band.  They're fairly new and also really young which makes me feel like a total creeper for loving them so much.  A lot of people are calling them the new 'One Direction'?  I don't know, I don't see it.  I mean, yeah, they're young and really attractive guys but I see One Direction as a boy band and 5SOS as more of a band that is like the younger version of All Time Low.  Anyone agree with me?  I'm definitely not putting down One Direction.  I just never really got the hype surrounding them.

2.  Pride & Prejudice

Now, let me explain this because you're probably thinking, 'Why is this a guilty pleasure, Courtney?  It's a great book/movie.'  Yes, I totally agree.  100%.  But, it's gotten to the point where if I'm in a used book store or antique store and if I see a version of the book that I don't have then I buy it.  I think I have about six or so different versions of the same book.  

3.  7th Heaven

I used to love this show so much.  And I still watch it from time to time.  But the funny thing is is that I am an atheist and this is a somewhat religious show.  So it makes me angry and frustrated sometimes just because of the content but I always found it entertaining enough to peak my interest. 

4.  Mountain Dew

I could drink this every single day of my life.  I usually do.  That is until I realized how much sugar was in a single can.  Now I drink Diet Mountain Dew, which isn't the same but still pretty damn tasty. 

 Well, I hope you enjoyed this little snippet into my life.  Come back next Thursday and I'll tell you about my favorite place and let you know about my camping experience!

  1. "We are a selfish species and it annoys the shit out of me." I agree! I have social anxiety, too. I hate having to socialize with people at my job (which is why I work with animals!) and it stresses me out majorly when I have to deal with social situations.

    And 7th Heaven! I used to watch that show. Ahh, nostalgia :)
