I wouldn't worry for at least another week, but I'm a slow recharger and I've never found a way to make the process speed up.
    I agree with this. I remember when I was in school, everyone would be so excited for summer fun... and I never really wanted to see anyone until around August-- took me a good month and a half to recharge my I-time meter. Just give yourself some more time.

    That said, of course you do need do do some things like look for your internship and pay attention to your boyfriend. I would start by talking to your bf and letting him know how you're feeling, so he doesn't think you're just withdrawing from him or anything, and ask him if you two could plan some introvert-friendly time together-- a quiet night in watching movies, a walk in the park, time together lying on a blanket outside and reading-- whatever feels right to you. Something that you can do "together" but that will also be recharging for you.

    For the internship, you could challenge yourself to spend one hour a day working on that-- or even one hour three times a week, or something. Set a goal that feels reasonable in your current state, and once you meet that time goal, allow yourself to stop thinking about it for the day/week/whatever.

    Good luck!
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    @Winds of Thor Speechless….not in a how dare you kind of way but more of a I’m to embarrassed to respond lol

    @cafe I’m glad you said this. I was worried I was taking to long to get back to myself. Knowing that sometimes you just take longer to recharge put me at ease a little thanks =).

    @digesthisickness Indulging in the lighter side of life, I might just do that. Comedy marathon with the bf sounds kind of fun.

    @Mane Comedy Yes Horror No. LOL I’m such a baby when I watch scary movies. Watching some of them re actually really traumatic for me. I can only handle zombie movies. Regarding my signature, I don’t think I want to change it. I interpret it differently than you described. I always have had a problem with going along with people tell me. I’m also quite gullible at times with people I trust. So that quote reminds me that it’s ok to go against the grain. It’s ok to say No and I don’t have to please everyone. I can follow my heart, stay true to my soul and dismiss what doesn’t feel right to me even though everyone else may not feel that way. In other words re- evaluate everything that come in and make up your own mind about it. I guess I’m comfortable with my heart and soul being my decision engine but I’m an NF. You are an NT so I guess you wouldn’t value heart and soul as a decision engine over you head. That’s probably why it doesn’t seem to encourage as sense of awareness to you. For me it’s the only way I’d feel alive. Humm ….interesting. I really enjoyed looking at you interpretation. I know I’m drifting off topic here but since I don’t really know you I’m kind of just speculating. Care to shed any more light on you underlying reason for your interpretation?
    I’ve heard of Ventrilo not sure what it’s all about though…

    @21% I love tear jerkers. I actually relate to a lot of what you’re saying. Sad music tends to make me feel better than love songs. The more tragic drama the better. I also love a rainy/ cloudy day. I seem to feel the most connected and the most inspired. I think I’ll have myself a tea jerking cry fest today. It’s cloudy here in NY. =)

    @Aquarelle I actually had a similar plan in mind. I committed myself to finishing 3 apps this week. One every other day. The bf is an NT. He works full time and we both have been distant lately. It’s not out of character for him but it’s completely off for me. I honestly don’t think he’s noticed though. He can be a little slow on the emotional uptake. I Skype him every day. I just haven’t gotten around to seeing him since I’ve been back. He’d be more than happy to see a movie but I’m in NYC going out anywhere involves mass amounts of people and public transportation. Guess I’ll just suck it up and see something with him this weekend. Besides I can use it as a barging chip to get some much needed cuddle time. Not sure that will work though. He always tells me how cuddling is pointless unless he’s trying to fall asleep.

    Do a spa day. Get a massage. A four-hand massage with hot stones, if you have the money. Then read the book in the sun, by the water. Then do the movies.
