30 Problems That Only Introverts Will Understand

1. Practicing conversations with people you’ll never talk to. 

2. When you want to cut all ties to civilization but still be on the internet. 

3. When your friend wants to invite more people over, and you don’t want to sound like a bad person by saying no. 

4. When spending a heavenly weekend alone means that you’re missing out on time with friends. 

5. And you fear that by doing so, you are nearing ‘hermit’ status. 

6. When your ride at a party doesn’t want to leave early, and no one seems to understand your distress. 

7. Trying to be extra outgoing when you flirt so your crush doesn’t think you hate them. 

8. That feeling of dread that washes over you when the phone rings and you’re not mentally prepared to chat. 

9. When you have an awesome night out, but have to deal with feeling exhausted for days after the fact. 

10. People saying “Just be more social.” 

11. When you’re able to enjoy parties and meetings, but after a short amount of time wish you were home in your pajamas. 

12. Staying up late every night because it’s the only time that you can actually be alone. 

13. People making you feel weird for wanting to do things by yourself. 

14. Having more conversations in your head than you do in real life. 

15. The need to recharge after social situations. 

16. People calling you out for day dreaming too much. 

17. Carrying a book to a public place so no one will bug you, but other people take that as a conversation starter. 

18. People interrupting your thoughts, and you get irrationally angry. 

19. Having to say “I kind of want to spend some time by myself” when you have to deal with that friend that always wants to hang out. 

20. When you’re asked to do a group project, and know that you’re going to hate every minute of it. 

21. When you hear the question “Wanna hang out?”, and your palms start to sweat with anxiety. 

22. When you hear, “Are you OK?” or “Why are you so quiet?” for the umpteenth time. 

23. Having visitors stay with you is a nightmare, because it means you have to be on at ALL TIMES. 

24. When people stop inviting you places because you’re the one that keeps canceling plans. 

25. Being horrified of small talk, but enjoying deep discussions. 

26. When you need to take breaks and recharge after socializing for too long. 

27. The requirement to think introspectively rather than go to someone else with your problems. 

28. Not wanting to be alone, just wanting to be left alone. And people not understanding that. 

29. When people mistake your thoughtful look for being shy, or worse, moody. 

30. Constantly misunderstood and you know this to be true:

Happy Wonder Woman Day 2020

I want this as a poster. How can I get this as a poster.

James Randi, Magician and Paranormal Debunker, Dies at 92

I have grown up hearing this man all my life. He was the first one to show me how great magic could be and how anything 'supernatural' was a hoax. To this day I have never found him to be wrong about any of it. As much as I want there to be a Yeti or Chupacabra, there is not one, or ghosts, or werewolves or aliens from other planets. With out solid proof I don't even believe that GOD exists. So thank you James Randi for making me into a mush more observant and sceptical human being. I wish more people could be that logical and rationale these days.

Rest in Reason, my Brother.

Randi, born Randall Zwinge, got his start as a magician and escape artist, fleeing jail cells or safes and even emerging from a coffin on the "Today" show in 1956. He would later host his own television show from 1967 to 1968. In the '70s, he performed a special for Canadian TV in which he escaped from a straitjacket while suspended upside down over Niagara Falls.

Randi even helped spice up the theatricality of rock star Alice Cooper, advising on the creation of the guillotine stage prop Cooper used and touring with him in the '70s. And throughout his career as a magician, he became a regular guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" and on the children's television show "Wonderama." 

By age 60, Randi had retired from magic and was one of the co-founders of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, or CSI. The committee responded to a rise of interest in the paranormal in the '70s and promoted scientific inquiry and critical thinking in the investigation of extraordinary or controversial claims.
