…tire weekends where I barely talk. And I love it. I’m in my head, creating. Nobody is bothering me. The type of person who enjoys this career is not the same strand of human who does music festivals. They are two extremes. Each person’s heaven is another’s hell.
I was with you until I got to this line. I am reading this in the dark and about to type in the same mood lighting. I could definitely go days without any in-person contact and have a blast on a deserted island (with food and hygiene items of course). But I have been to so many music festivals and concerts that I have lost count. Part of it was being an entertainment reporter. The other part is I am comfortable around people I do not know and sometimes more than people I do know. You don’t know who the hell I am so there is no room (nor interest on my part) on judgment. Being in a room full of people I do know? That gets old fairly quickly unless I equally like everyone.
But I have said many times that I am an antisocial extrovert so I might be a happy medium between the two.
