I see parties and crowds as two very different things.
Since I began working, I’ve been around crowds more than I do parties. Mall sales tend to attract them. Freebies and giveaways also draw them in. And a convention of any kind catches their attention.
And I have been lost in a crowd.
While crowd surfing is fun for me, it’s not for the ones who are looking for me. They tend to become irritated during the whole process and more so when we’ve finally met.
Parties, for me, depend on who’s in charge. If it’s family or friends, I’m usually buzzed. But when it’s someone I only know or a total stranger, I’m tamer and reserved than usual. Plus I just stick to the person or the group I am with.
But if I have seen too many crowds or have been to too many parties recently, I begin to crave for some solitude. I enjoy the noise because I am comfortable with the peace and quiet.
