Went to a work function this evening…and it was the best time I’ve had in a while.
Though I work in marketing, I am not the most extroverted person. If I do not know in advance that ten (or two) people I know and can talk to, will be somewhere, I will not go out of my way to go (or stay) anywhere.
Heading out, I took a page out of my college days, saying that I would stay for an hour, try not to check my watch, thank the hosts, and then make my exit.
Turns out things can be fun when you have zero expectations.
