I got a job. Part time. At the local Fred's. Minimum wage. My first day was Tuesday. I worked yesterday (Thursday), today, and am expected for the next few days.
I think I understand the "introverts gain energy by being alone" now. I don't feel it at work, but after, I feel drained. Not tired, but drained.
But a little human interaction is good, right? Right.
But after, don't talk to me. I'm not on the clock, and I don't feel the need for intelligent human interaction.
It's weird, like I'm supposed to be a grown up now. I'm not certain how I feel about that.
