The anti-socialite

I'll be honest--I'm pretty much a loner. I like smaller groups and more intimate social situations than, say hanging out in bars or with more than a dozen people, especially if there're many people I just don't know.

But here's something I don't understand--people don't ask me out much. Do I give off some kind of vibe that says Don't Touch? I don't mean to. I find out about the bars or the clubs or the parties afterwards--usually the next day, when everyone is talking about how much fun they had and no one asks me why I wasn't there. I can't go to a place if I don't know it's happening. People have seen me at Industry Bar exactly three times, and everyone there was surprised--but it's only been four times that I knew anyone was going to be there.

I'd like to think I have a decent track record for showing up when someone invites me somewhere--someone tell me if I'm wrong.

I prefer "acquiesed".

So I gave up. I avoided getting a MySpace account for so long, and I realized I'm outside the loop of what so many of my friends are up to. So here I be, jumping on the bandwagon and joining the crowd.

Beyond that, I'm proud to say I've started a more rigorous exercise regime. I'm working out right after work nearly every day--got the mp3 playlist, jogging and weightlifting for about 45 minutes a day, five or six days a week. If, by the time I go to Moscow, I don't look the way I want in my Superman costume--well, I don't know. Ask me when and if it happens.
