Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll for 1/4/13: Are You A Homebody?

Friends, I love my home. It’s not especially fancy, or even all that clean most of the time, but my favorite things are here. Plus, I can always control the music. 

I am 100% homebody. A night with a marathon on Netflix Instant, comfy pants, a cat or two and a pile of pillows is like winning the free time lottery for me. What about you? Do you recharge by going out to see and do interesting things, or do you prefer to hibernate when you need to energize?

I kind of go 50/50 with this, or maybe more 60/40 towards homebody. If I go out to do stuff either in the evening after work or during the weekend, I really love it and generally have a great time with people. But I’m also *really* excited to get home. There have actually been nights when I literally squeal a little when I jump into bed or cozy up on the couch, then the cat will usually join me and I’ll read or Netflix the next few hours away. I love my apartment. love it sooooo!

I think it really depends on how my day/week has been that dictate my social tendencies.

I work at home, but will have to start traveling for work soon, which to me is the best of both worlds. No office to drive to, no ‘real’ clothes to have to wear usually, etc. combined with the ability to travel, see new places, etc. without having to pay for it. I usually like to stay home because I hate dealing with parking and cold – if it’s a place with more parking in warm weather, I’m more inclined to head out now & again :)

I am an absolute homebody and rarely go out. It’s mostly by choice, but it is also by circumstances; it’s simply a fact of life for me that going out anywhere usually takes more energy than I can spare. Luckily I like being at home, so it’s easier to deal with when I’d rather be out somewhere and can’t be.

I am. I’m a Cancer and nesting at home is one of the things I do best!

I like being around people when I want to be around people but I’m also very solitary. I have had weekends where I did not leave my house, saw no one and literally did not speak one word. And I’m totally okay with that.
