Dear Young Teacher Down the Hall,

I saw you as you rushed past me in the lunch room. Urgent. In a hurry to catch a bite before the final bell would ring calling all the students back inside. I noticed that your eyes showed tension. There were faint creases in your forehead. And I asked you how your day was going and you sighed.

“Oh, fine,” you replied.

But I knew it was anything but fine. I noticed that the stress was getting to you. I could tell that the pressure was rising. And I looked at you and made an intentional decision to stop you right then and there. To ask you how things were really going. Was it that I saw in you a glimpse of myself that made me take the moment?

You told me how busy you were, how much there was to do

What an introvert won’t ever tell you… #authors #introverts #writers #BooSmallTalk

Here is yet another lovely list of “15 Things That An Introvert Won’t Tell you”. I’m posting this because I fell like most if not all writers are introverted, or at least land in the middle. I found small talk and networking events to be the funniest on this list. They say as a young author you should really put yourself out there and network like crazy, especially at conferences! Yet, it’s one of the very things some of us dislike the absolute most. I’m terrible at meeting new people for the first time. I almost always make an awkward first impression, even when I’m trying not to! Then, that impression never gets out of the person’s mind until they actually get to know the real me. I always go by the iceberg motto: what you see is merely a chunk of me.

And herrrrrre’s the list! http://higherperspective.com/2015/01/introverts.html?utm_source=cleo&ts_pid=2

Calling all INFP personality types aka most writers I know… #writers #infp #hilarious #authors

This is a YouTube video I found “You know you’re an INFP when…”. I related to just about every single one of these. I laughed so hard at a few, like being the only one to laugh at a movie at pure comedy gold. My head is just plain up in the clouds most if not all of the time. In fact, next time you’re laying in the grass and pointing out different shapes, see if you see my head!
