Our last and final office party was this past Friday, and it was at the Museum of Natural History. A great space for a holiday party because of all the interesting exhibits. I haven’t been to this museum in a long time and boy has it changed!
This is me as a cave woman. As Sean said, we’re pretty sure they didn’t have lipstick back then. Still fun. Sean and I spent a lot of time in the exhibits. Maybe borderline too much time in the exhibits.
In high school I was voted most friendly, but I heard rumors that I was also a top contender for most shy. So while that sounds a little ridiculous that one person could be in the running for both of those categories, it’s an accurate depiction of me. I really try to be friendly and go through all these little rituals to pump myself up for social situations, but it doesn’t always work out the way I want. Friday was a prime example of this. I don’t have a group at work, but here are plenty of people that I interact with. This wasn’t enough to carry me through. We certainly said hello to the colleagues on my team, but there a lot of time spent as just the two of us. It wasn’t a total fail since we did speak with my colleagues, but it wasn’t a great success either. It makes me wish I were consistently more confident in social situations. But at least we’re done with parties like this for the year!Sean’s office is about two blocks up on the left.
