Apparently people say I live in the suburbs. Not buying it, I was awoken by a particularly loud sheep on 3 occasions the past 2 weeks ffs.
As per the MBTI things and function quizzes, I'm an extrovert. The typical extrovert things, I find myself willingly driving into the heaviest traffic I can find during rush hour on the one major road in the town. Crowded restaurants? Love them. Work was awful until I heard the sound of people and commotion that turned me into a machine feeding off their energy.
Now moving on the the present situation. I won't sugarcoat it, I've been looking the past 3 years for some way to energize or bring some life to the "town". The only club in town closed its doors a few years ago. Bars are few, none are really good places to meet people, only 2 restaurants with bar sections and 1 "bar" where I'd gladly go to have peace and quiet with isolation from the outside world.
Why is this a problem? Well, for a start, I'm stumped. I've worked at this issue for many years. Solutions? I was on a whole other level in London, and a couple of other major European cities. Went clubbing while out on vacation, sat around drinking with a few friends. All well and fine, but now I come back home to the existence I was shoved into several years ago here. Social skills started to deteriorate because of the lack of the energized people in a city like London, Milan, or Warsaw. There are a couple of cities to the south, but I can't guarantee my own safety in the closest one and the other is most certainly an inner circle of hell for a driver when busy.
Any ideas on where to draw energy from? Any advice from someone in a similar situation?
