THE INTROVERT'S GUIDE TO SOCIAL AFFAIRS

  1. Practice facial expressions such as "interest," "amusement," and "excitement" in the mirror. Preferably, a day or two before the event.
  2. Don't zone out upon arrival. Give yourself 10 to 15 minutes... Then, zone out. 
  3. Don't freak out when someone shakes your hand, hugs you or kisses your cheek. Take a deep breath and let it happen. After, excuse yourself, head to the nearest bathroom and proceed to freak out!!!  Side note: Only recently have I stopped dying inside when people have reached out to hug me #progress 
  4. You'll have to give a few smirks and waves but you can roll your eyes once you've walked pass them.  That's my favorite part :)
  5. Ok, we've made it to the end (approximately 60 minutes into the social gathering).  Tell everyone you're heading to the powder room but, don't come back... You've showed up and mingled, isn't that sufficient?
