So, if you are too tired to
speak, sit next to me,
because, I too, am fluent in
I know I’ve mentioned being an introvert in the past, but today I’m going to revisit the topic! I’ve been an introvert all my life, although i don’t think you just ‘become’ an introvert or extrovert, you’re born one or the other! So, in the early years of my life, back when there was no such thing as a home computer or google, I just lived my life, being different than almost everyone around me, and thought I was the weird one! I was the one who liked to stay at home with my family and animals, where I could be alone whenever I wanted. But, as I got older I realized that society expects a certain amount of socializing and if you aren’t doing enough…..then there’s something wrong. I think there’s still a stigma with being an introvert! Surely, it can’t be normal to want to be alone that much, people may think……. wrong!! When you’re system is depleted of energy from being around people, then nothing can recharge your system except peaceful time alone. When working in the service industry, I always came home after a shift and needed a couple hours before I could have a conversation with anyone and feel refreshed! I’m sure extroverts can’t relate to an introvert any better than the other way around. At this point in life I’m exceptionally lucky that my animals don’t require small talk, I always find peace with them! I can be outgoing and chatty, and even entertaining among people, but there is a price I pay. After, I’m mentally exhausted and need quiet and time alone. I’m glad I know and accept this about myself, because now when someone asks me out for coffee, I don’t feel guilty if I have other plans……like, celebrating my dog’s birthday, dusting my houseplants, organizing the breakfast cereal in my cupboard, or washing my hair!
I’ve put together a simple outfit to hang out at home in, on this Sunday morning! First off is the Bess Turtleneck Cropped Sweater, which is a new release from SN@TCH! It comes in handy right now with a warming trend here in my area, so I can shed the heavy coats for awhile! It has the super long sleeves and high neck while still baring a bit of midriff for a little bit of sexy! The top comes in an astounding 27 solids and patterns and in six sizes for mesh bodies.
And on my bare midriff is the Dare to Dream Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t! It’s a simple but pretty design that comes in system layers and appliers for the Omega and TMP compatible mesh bodies!
There’s no close up this time around, but the Zoie Sneakers are a pretty little shoe that’s worth a look at the Slipper Originals main store.
The Halsey Jeans from Vinyl are perfect for the weekend! They’re boot cut and have a boyfriend jeans type of fit, love ’em!
The Boys & Girls 70 hair is from Dura Hair! The hair and headband are both HUD driven for the colour options.
I’ve decided that the Alex mesh head is ‘me’ and I’m committed to it! I’m wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, which has such soft lips and a gentle look! I have added a little bit of eyeshadow from the Fall Essentials pack from alaskametro<3! I’m always wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the relaxed hands and flat feet from SLink.
The poses are from Overlow Poses, pack 86.
I love being at After the Fall! The sim is full of dark and destroyed areas, if you want that end of society look for your pictures!
