If there’s a dinner party going on, I’m the one prepping the food, clearing the plates, and asking people if they want refills. In life, I hunger after new hobbies, new things to learn. On a typical week outside of work hours, you might find me singing at my weekly a cappella rehearsal, hosting a Bible study at our house, working on the blog, or practicing Sunday worship songs with my church band. On weekends I like to be out, to be productive and do stuff, or at least experience the world in a new way.
It makes me happy when others are happy. Therefore, it’s natural for a doer like me to take care of guests during a party or to do everything within my powers to make sure no one’s unhappy. In the whirlwind of life, my days are packed with activities, where more often than not, I’m doing everything I can to make sure everyone around me is happy, fed, and also enjoying life. As a natural extrovert, I thrive living this way because I love being around people, serving them, and making them happy. However, sometimes even the busiest extroverts need a break.
And that’s why I still love snowstorms.
As you probably all know by now, Boston’s been slammed with a record amount of snow in the past month. Snowstorms grind a city to a halt. For our first snowstorm, the Mayor declared a Snow Emergency and banned all non-essential vehicles from driving on the roads. Unless you were an essential worker, you weren’t even allowed to drive out. Everything got canceled – school, offices, businesses, restaurants, stores, even the subway system . . . All of a sudden, a vast majority of Bostonians were forced to stay home, stop whatever was overtaking their busy lives, and just . . . rest.
