So, like a lot of others in the world. Some places are starting to loosen up restrictions. Which means YAY and also NAY for some.
Now, if you’re like me. When my state first had it’s restrictions loosened, I really struggled to head out. When I did, I couldn’t be quiet, but my energy was depleted really quickly.
So, Lolsys Library, what can we do if we want to celebrate Pride, but don’t really want to go out? Or you’re not ready to head yet and PAR-TAY! What can you do?
There are plenty of options!
- Tune into any virtual Pride events and stream!
- While you’re streaming, why not make some rainbow treats! – Delish cooking
- Why not listen to some LGBT friendly podcasts?!
- Borrow, or even better, buy books. That are about the LGBTQIA life, written by LGBTQIA authors.
- Support LGBT Pride Businesses.
- Some suggestions have been to find a LGBTQIA colouring book. I think it’s fine though with any colouring in book. Especially if you have colouring in books, that are just patterns. I have a few that are “dream animals” type patterns. However, clearly during this month, specific LGBT colouring in books would be preferable. – Coloring Book Addict (Pride LGBTQ+ Coloring Books)
- Writing about colouring in…Why not do some LGBT friendly art!
- When you go to shops, wear those rainbows and rainbows colours!
One of the problems about this time of year and being an introvert, you feel this total feeling of needing to catch up with everybody, yet you don’t want to see anyone…Luckily though I combat with this with being creative, even if it means just writing my Christmas Cards in multiple colours.
Psychology Today – Introversion
I found this amazing Blog posting this week that I just fell in love with and felt that all my readers should read this post too!
Coffee, books, and a tale to tell. A day at the bookstore.
I am also a people watcher and many probably wouldn’t believe it, but I struggle in social situations as well. I have gotten better over the years, but I love to people watch, but I don’t want to be watched!
If I had a child, I would encourage them to read whatever it they wanted too. I couldn’t imagine being a parent, or an adult and look down on anyone who wants to read whatever it is they want too.
So this weekend is a big test for me! It’s the first “supportive” thing I will be doing as my new ‘beau’s’ partner. I am nervous for a few various reasons:
- Posisbly will meet some members of his Family
- Will be meeting his friends for the first time.
- Will be in the same room as the friends who I do not like (and they don’t like me) and who I have not seen for a couple of months.
It’s a long story (as they always are) there are so many reason to feel uncomfortable and my mind is screaming “Don’t Go!!! Don’t do it!!!”. No! Super Girlfriend Mode is on and I will be dragging (and a couple of other friends) myself out. I think it’s one of the main things I will miss about being single, if I don’t want to go somewhere…I don’t have too. I could avoid meeting people for the first time for the rest of my life! I don’t owe anyone an explanation as to why I wouldn’t want to go somewhere, I just wouldn’t go.
Hang onto your single life people!!!
Will be meeting his parents (at least)
Will be surrounded by his friends who apparently dislike me (but no one, including them, will tell me why)
All the people who were suppose to be coming with me, have now pulled out.)
If I can get through tonight’s social situations, I can get through anything!
