Taryn from South Africa is leaving Atlanta soon. So Jamie and Taylor threw a party for her. At the party was a photo booth, which I think was the hit of the party. (I've always wanted a photo booth at one of my parties, but I found out last night that they cost $800 to rent! Ouch!)
Anyway, I discovered something about myself last night that I think left me feeling a little down. That is, I don't have a really exciting photo booth personality. I don't really know what to do with myself besides sit there and look at the camera. I try to be fun, but it just isn't really in me to do out-of-the-ordinary, crazy-fun things. (You probably can't tell from the pictures, but I was actually very uncomfortable in there.) I guess when it came down to it, I left the party feeling like I was in middle school or early high school again. In those days, I was shy and very normal. There's nothing wrong with that, I guess . . . I just definitely feel the difference sometimes when I'm around exciting people with exciting stories and adventures. I'm okay with being plain, I guess, but I also feel bad about it sometimes.
This is turning into a depressing blog post, which I didn't mean for it to . . . I did have fun last night, and I do feel like I'm an interesting person. But I don't think I'm outwardly interesting, if that makes sense . . . And I discovered that that doesn't make for super-fun photo booth pictures. Thank goodness I have exciting friends who made the pictures more interesting. :)
Thing I'm thankful for: other shy and quiet people.
