There’s a good chance you met me at an event (if we’ve met IRL). Over the past 10 years I have gone to as many events as I could. Some weeks 3/night for 3/5 days a week. It’s a great way to meet new people, make friends, and expand your network. It’s also quite tiring, as is living on the internet and sharing your life throughout the day.
I still love going out but since my digital detox in Costa Rica I’ve also come to love being home. There was a time when I would trek across the city just to
see everyone be seen at a party, then back to another event, and dance the night away. Now, quite often, I find myself scrolling photos from people who were out the night before thinking ‘ooh, that looks fun’ and feeling joy that I didn’t make it.
You see, I’ve been to SO MANY things that I don’t really feel like I’m missing out.
I know there’ll always be cool new things but I also knowI mentally feel great when I have a good sleep and get up early, checking things off my list.
I make a point to pop by things hosted by people I care about or someone I’d like to meet, I’m just a little more choosy now.
I find it’s great to bundle them and make pit stops early so you can get home at a reasonable hour.
