Put yourself out there

I was at work yesterday, and one of the summer clerks needed some help with running a program. (It disappeared or something.) Anyway, after I helped her out, she was really curious why she hasn’t seen me before.

So, she gave me a short “interview”. She also asked if I was the same Bryan in the email about some show last Monday night. (I had asked a co-worker to send it to all staff.) She explained that after the meeting Monday evening, they went out for drinks. They might’ve went to go see us play – if they knew who I was!

I said I was an introvert, but she said that if I would’ve just did my job and walk away, then that’d be a different story.

I took the Blogthings quiz, and I’m more of an introvert than an extrovert. Then again, that’s a really short quiz. Reading Steve’s article, “How to go from introvert to extrovert“, I’m wondering if I have a healthy balance. I think I’m just initially shy. Maybe I should buy a “shy” t-shirt?

I guess what I’ve learned is that if you talk about something you’re really into, whoever is listening will get into the conversation, too. You never know!
