I did something new today. I attended a Festivus celebration after work–my first Festivus celebration, and my first time going out with my coworkers after work in…maybe close to ever.
To most people this wouldn’t be a feat. But I’m incredibly uncomfortable in crowds in social situations, especially with a bunch of people I don’t know well. I don’t know what to say, so I get quiet. I’m better with 1-1 conversation than in groups, where I tend to lurk on the edges of conversations. And I smile a lot. People probably thought I was a doofus, but the truth is I’m socially shy.
Anyway, I went out and had fun after work with coworkers in celebration of Festivus. Which is kind of a Festivus miracle.
For those who might not get the Seinfeld reference, here’s a link to all things Festivus.
