Living the life of an ambivert

Some days I just want to stay under the duvet, in the most comfortable and cosy state; and wish the day away. A good 45 minutes later, real life takes the reins and I’m forced to stretch and yawn and the first thing I have to do is head towards that coffee.

I have too many days where I have over worked myself to a point where I physically can’t wake up the next morning. Now, this is partly because I’m an ambivert.

An ambivert is a physiological definition for a person who has a balance of extrovert and introvert features in their personality.

So my typical week consists of 3 days (Friday-Sunday) working a part time job. It’s very exhausting because I’m on my feet for about 7 hours and I have to force myself to socialise with people I don’t like and I have to always approach a customer and create a conversation with them when I really don’t want to. Sometimes, I work bank holiday Monday too and because of the summer holidays, my friends are back in London so I’ll see them often so we’ll go out for a meal and then there are days where I’ll see my family and I’ll leave one evening or maybe a day to myself.

On the days where I’m to myself I kind of … “recharge” – socialising is exhausting if I don’t have time to myself. I can be in a sort of sad mood or get easily annoyed. That’s just me as a person. I need time to myself. I need balance.

Blogging for me is a way I recharge, I pour out my thoughts on to this blog and hope for people to relate, give me feedback and see if I can improve or at least maintain the production of content.

I’ll also go to the gym, I like the after effects of working out, my skin looks a lot more healthy and glowy from the blood flow and from sweating out toxins. My body feels good. I get a kick of endorphins. The shower after a work out feels amazing!! like, YASS wash off all the sweat and crap and feel brand new!

I watch anime! One of my good friends and my boyfriend have got me into watching anime when I’m by myself. So far, I’m watching; Kakegurui – a mystery, a psychological drama about an institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. (Deffo give this a go!) I have finished Terror in Resonance and I’ve started watching the first episode of Fate/ Stay Night: unlimited blade works. I prefer dubbed anime because I usually watch anime when I’m eating, so it’s hard to multi-task! However, I’m not picky, I can watch anime with subtitles too! I can’t find myself to have the patience to read recently, I don’t know why. To be honest, I like reading on long train journeys.

I watch GRWM videos or makeup tutorials… as silly as this sounds, I feel like watching people apply their makeup is kind of therapeutic.

I drink coffee. The life force to all human beings. Caffeine. Coffee is life. Coffee is good. Coffee is a must. Coffee saves lives.

I hope you liked this post!
