adventures in dysthymia

Tuesday, January 04, 2005

A friend was telling me how bored she was over the weekend, with 'nothing to do,' and I realized that I never feel that way. Oh, I get bored but not when I'm on my own -- there are a thousand and one things I want to do, projects to work on, books to read, music to play. I really only get bored when I have to be somewhere with people, whether work or pleasure. Waiting on things is the worst.

I know one problem I have with 'relationships' is a tendency to resent the time spent on them. I get impatient. I want to get back to MY work...which is my greatest pleasure.

Oh man, does that whole thing apply to me, word for word, as well... I can always fill my alone time... and I hate waiting on things, or people especially... and when I am out with others, I'm always thinking of what I need or would rather be doing... there's a word for us too, "quirkyalones"... a book about it too, which actually is really good, hit my nail on the head quite a lot in it.
