The holidays can be an extremely stressful time for a person as introverted as me. There are always tons of people that are all coming home at the same time that always want to get together and catch up. Sorry, Amy, but I haven’t seen you since high school, and I don’t want to “catch up.” Every so often, someone surprises you, however, and you appreciate what the holiday spirit is all about.
Other times, the surprise isn’t that lovely… especially when it’s coming from an ex-boyfriend.
Long story short: Not good.
