Introvert Life | That’s Just Not For Me

File this one under You Might Be An Introvert If….

I crack myself up.

I think I’ve tried to convince myself for many years that I am a “people person”.

You know, like when you’re in high school and you take career survey after career survey to figure out what you should do with your life so you don’t end up being a loser.  There’s always those questions that are like “Do you enjoy helping people?” And at the time, I’m sure I was like, well of course I do.

But you couldn’t really say how you liked helping people or put it in terms of a spectrum.

I mean, I like people. But in smallish amounts.

I’m not Mother Teresa.

So I would get confused when I’d get my results back and it would say things like I should be a teacher or a hair stylist.

Apparently, I should want to do these things because they are altruistic or creative careers.

But I was like, no and no.

Bless all the people that like helping people one-on-one every freaking day.

Right now, I’m going to help people by making humorous designs for them. From a distance.

I’ll love you all in my own special way.

I Don’t Want To Go On An Adventure

For those of us that would just rather stay in…

For those of us that cringe at the idea of camping…

For those of us that give the thumbs down to traveling abroad…

For those of us whose idea of an adventure includes a good book and a cup of tea…

I give you, I Don’t Want To Go On An Adventure

In all honesty, I am one for an adventure. So long as it’s not suddenly sprung on me, doesn’t involve interacting with lots of strangers, long periods of waiting, heights, sleeping outdoors, creepy crawly bugs, very hot weather, or very cold weather.

This design was actually inspired by my 2.5 year old son. He is a little introvert with a very good vocabulary. A few weeks back, I was trying to do some work, encouraging Daddy to get Ivan outta my hair.  

Daddy says to Ivan, “Hey Dude, let’s go on an adventure!”

Ivan says to Daddy, “I not want to go on an adventure. I want to stay hOohme.” (he pronounces “home” as though it has two syllables.)

 

So this little exchange inspired my current design. There are so many trending designs out there about the mountains calling….well what if I don’t want to answer? What about the people that are like…how about not?  So I decided to go with a parody on vintage camp shirts.

 

Mountains are great and all, but it takes a lot of planning to do mountain-y stuff. And it might be cold. And what if you get lost and have to talk to someone to get directions. I won’t judge you if you just want to stay home and play legos.
