I think of myself as being creative or at least crafty, even if it doesn't always manifest in what is considered to be an "artsy" genre.
As active as I am, I'm a bit of an introvert and balance the activity with solitude and time alone or with a select few. If you hear the term introvert and you think socially maladjusted basement dweller, that's not me. Well, except for the basement dwelling. I finished my basement (cellar to be more accurate, it's only 4' under ground) and that is my main living space. But anyway, I'm just not good at "hanging out", never have been. I need a purpose, something to do, see, experiences to have. Conversation should happen while doing something. If not, I'd rather spend time pondering, working on hobbies, reading, etc. "Hanging out" without some activity, a show, a museum, interesting distractions to trigger conversation, just doesn't appeal to me. Meeting to just talk... "oh look, a squirrel".
