Do parties and crowds fill you with energy, or send you scurrying for peace and quiet?
I do not mind going to parties if there are some people I know, it gives me an incentive to hang out with them. I am not too fond of wild parties where guests completely lose their sense,I avoid those.
I’ve been to some parties where the guests are interested in what every one is wearing, to me it feels like I’m attending a fashion show I don’t much care about them.
I was invited to attend a wedding in Baltimore, the groom was the son of my husband’s good friend, I was happy to accept the invitation.
There were a lot of guests, it was not noisy, the bride was very sweet, she made sure her guests were having a good time, her father had passed away, she and her mother and her cousins organized everything. The whole ceremony was a joy to watch.
Write about the last disagreement you had with a friend or family member–from their perspective.
I wouldn’t call it disagreement but a friendly advice. My friend complains of her health, her blood pressure is up, she has diabetes, she has to lower her blood sugar, only possible way is to take a pill.
She lives in a big city, where she has a lot of friends, most of them are younger. They love parties , so they have get together almost five times a week,this does not help her situation, the food is the problem and it is rich food means a lot of butter is used to cook it.They eat late which is 10 pm according to what I read and heard, the dinner should be eaten from 5 to 6 pm. By 7 pm everyone should stop eating to maintain good health.
When she is at home she is cautious about what she eats. She follows the time she should stop eating, it is when she goes to parties this is difficult to do.
She wants to be social, therefore she does not mind eating at 10 pm , I argue with her about it, she laughs and tells me she cannot help going to these parties, the end result is she is hurting herself.
Too much noise at parties makes me look for a place I can hide. I do not enjoy hearing everyone yelling to make their voices heard, I’ve been to parties where children are also invited and these kids yell so loud it almost makes me feel I’d be deaf in no time if I continue to experience this kind of noise.
I like parties where people are not so loud, everyone is enjoying themselves. Food is the main thing,when there is a variety, it becomes more fun to taste a bit of everything.
I also like it when I don’t have to stay at a party past my bed time.
“Parties” are celebration of many things,it can be a get-together at year-end or a birthday,a wedding ceremony and so on.It’s a social function.I love watching everyone dressed up in their finest clothes. Then there are some who are there to show-off their clothes,to me that’s okay too.when I go to these events,I find a spot where I can sit and watch the crowd.
There are a variety of tasty foods,which I enjoy eating.To me it takes about an hour to find my quiet spot.This is when the crowd is noisy,their conversation to me is meaningless.They look at me as if I am from a very different planet than them.Let me explain why,I stay away from small talk.The behaviour of some becomes intolerable.If I am attending a get-together party in someone’s home. I start getting restless after an hour,I guess it shows up on my face,my host comes to my rescue and asks my most favourite question: ‘Do you want to go home?” I try to be courteous and tell her, ‘No I’m fine.’ Although at heart I really had enough and home is the sweetest word for me. I do not mind parties if the duration is an hour,which is not possible.People just are beginning to warm up and I am ready to leave.
Big social events are not for me. The noise is deafening,I have a hard time dealing with it.I don’t feel energetic in the middle of a crowd.It does send me scrambling for peace and quiet.
