Yesterday I did the first part of the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Tag and now it’s time for part two.
The rules are:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Post a quote for three consecutive days and
- Nominate 3 bloggers each day
So, again thank you Emily for nominating me.
“Everyone else goes home for nostalgia and happy memories. I end up feeling like I never fit in with the family as a child, and being older hasn’t changed that.”
-Laurell K. Hamilton, Blood Noir
I will start by commenting on the book that I took the quote from. So, the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series is somewhat of a mystery to me. I can point out quite a few flaws in these books and there are more than a few things that I don’t like about them, but I just can’t stop reading them.
Anyway, I decided to share this quote, because I have had the same feeling when coming back home from the University quite a lot. I am an introvert living in a family of extroverts. I love privacy and hate noise and in my house there is no privacy and too much noise. So, I end up closing myself inside my room and have as little communication as I can with the outside world.
The problem is that my family thinks that my need for privacy and a serene environment means that I am antisocial and they throw it at me every now and again, as if to prove a point. If I try to explain the difference between introverted vs. antisocial people, they argue with me. But I hate arguments; they are so noisy. So, I end up in my room once again, asking myself why the h**l did I leave my room!
Which brings us back to the quote. Even though, I have a lot of happy memories of my family, I have always felt like the odd one out. But everything will be okay, as soon as I get a job that will pay me enough money to afford rent for an apartment of my own. 😀
And again if you’ve already been tagged or have already done this tag then simply ignore me.
Aaaand… that’s it from me today. Come back tomorrow for part 3 🙂
Now it’s your turn…
