Observation

Social calendars have only two states: empty or full.

When you have tons of free time, trying to get together with other people is nigh impossible. You just don't get together with people often enough to get invited to things.

But if you have plenty of social activities, then people invite you to more. It's exponential growth!

I'm still amazed at how this works. The scale and speed at which networks operate is quite difficult to wrap one's head around.

And that's why isolation is so hard to break... And why introverts quickly become nuts when they start hanging around a lot of people!

I'm a strong introvert, but I seem to have managed this quite well. Sometimes I feel like just staying at home for a week, but this never actually happens...

I can relate. Oh how I can relate...

Sometimes I think it would be nice, but then I think about how nice it would be, and I want to share it, and then it becomes a big pyjama party full of people.

My roomie's been talking of throwing one for ages. They rule so much!

(like I need more excuses to hang around in pyjamas)

That's so true... I think part of it is also that if you keep yourself fresh in people's minds, you wind up getting more of the spur-of-the-moment "hey, let's go do this" things, including the ones that are planned in advance.

That's definitely part of it.
