Ok, so I know this is late…but honestly, I forgot until after midnight that I had this to write. It’s been an unusual Sunday.

For one, I worked 9 and 1/2 hours today. It should really bother me more that I worked on a Sunday. I tend to try to keep that day sacred and restful, time for family and comfortable enjoyment.

I’ve started reading a new book! Well, in a way it’s an old book. I got Matthew Kelly’s “Rediscovering Catholicism” years ago but never read the whole thing. Now I plan to. You can see the book to the right in my GoodReads widget (I just got an account there).

This week my boss sat me down for a performance review. He’s very dedicated to making his business successful and wants to make sure that everyone working for him will make that a reality. He told me what people had been saying about me and what he’d been picking up from me: that I was smart, dependable and kind. But also that I was boring. well, people found me boring. I don’t add anything to guests conversations or anything like that. I’m an introvert naturally.

There was a day I think, when what he said would have offended me. When I would have gotten upset. I won’t admit it didn’t bug me. But what really stuck out to me was when he asked me if I wanted to just “be there” my whole life. After all, aren’t I called to more? Aren’t we all made for greatness as Benedict XVI said? But you know, I AM an introvert. In some situations that can be a problem. But it’s how I was made and, actually, it’s something I’ve improved on a lot in my life. I am less shy than I once was.

Posts in the works. I’ve got one or two that I’ll tweak and publish this week, so stay tuned for those. One has to do with feminism and I’m kind of excited about it. Also, since the month is now officially over I’ll need to review June’s goals and set new goals for July. So look out for a post on that soon.

Fortnight for Freedom. I also realize I’ve been bad about Fortnight posts. Real bad. Hopefully I can get something out this week relating to it before it’s over. In the mean time check out this post.

  1. Hey Rachel!!
    I just wanted to let you know that I am an introvert too. I tend to be quiet around strangers and some may interpret it as me being snobby—but it’s totally not true. At first, I hated being an introvert until I understood that God does not make mistakes and therefore there’s nothing wrong with being an introvert. I hope I make sense. I am on spring break and I am working on a big group project due next week so my head is everywhere. Anyway, God bless (:
