My bank account can confirm it: something I really love to do, is buy people gifts. Birthdays are my favourite days of the year, along with Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. I’m not talking about the generic gifts like chocolates, gift cards, booze, or a card – I’m talking about gifts you actually have to put some thought in.
The ambivert: a rare species whose behaviour can be unpredictable and therefore pretty damn annoying. A.K.A., me. One day I’ll talk for hours, message all my friends at the same time and force at least one person to go out with me; the other I’ll walk around the house wrapped in blankets, whining to my dog (yes, my dog) about how people never leave me alone. The ambivert-life isn’t easy, guys.
As some of you know, I am quite a busy person. I lead the Creative Writing Group at my school, I am part of the writing mentor programme, I am in the board of a students’ association and I am a member of another one. Besides that I am a full-time student, try to maintain my friendships as well as I can and update this blog at least once a week. “How the hell do you do it all?” is a question I have been asked more than once. Well, my friends, the answer is simple: preparation.
Ever since this academic year started my life has changed drastically. Not only did I take over the Creative Writing Group, but I also became a part of two student organisations – and recently I even became part of the board of one. It’s been busy, and I haven’t been home all that much. As fun as it has been, however, I still prefer staying in over going out.
