My friends always tell me that I’m introverted and don’t want to socialize with others. I can understand why people think this about me, because I’m always telling them that I don’t want to come to watch a movie or have a pizza night. I usually tell them that I’m tired or have a busy schedule, but they never believe that me. To be honest, I hate going over to my friend’s apartment. It’s not that I don’t like spending time with them, but I hate how less than enjoyable their apartments are. Everyone has the thermostat set to 70 degrees or lower. It’s just too cold for me! Even among the summer season, I’d need to bundle up in several thick layers before I could visit their places. It’s really not so easy for me! I’d need to drive to their place in the heat, so how am I meant to dress for that? I can’t wear my summer clothing during the drive, then change in the parking lot. I also don’t prefer to bring a change of clothes with me, because that’s a lot from extra work. I’d much rather just hang out in my own apartment and relax with a comfortable temperature. I don’t want to tell my friends why I actually don’t want to come over either, because I don’t wish to be rude. I also don’t want to be responsible for having them change their thermostats just for me. That would end up making everyone else uncomfortable. I would feel so guilty! For today, I’ll just stay home in my own apartment, where I can set the thermostat to whatever I need. I’ll just let my pals think I’m an introvert for the moment.
