I suspect that you, like me, are introverted. I love to make light of things and I enjoy the forum setting. I'm pretty outspoken here which probably makes me appear to be an extrovert. When actually, I speak a lot here because I feel safe expressing my ideas here, but, it's a web forum which gives me the ability to walk away from any conversation to spend time alone without worrying about those awkward social ramifications. I prefer the cyber exchange, i.e. web forum, because each person has a chance to speak without being interrupted or derailed from what they want to say. I feel trapped when in large groups because I can no longer control what I do, without having to consider how others will react. Interesting how I can make the effort to show up for a get-together, and end up with the host pissed off at me when I leave early. I can only take so much time being in medium to large groups. It's exhausting. I'm saying all this because I'm curious; fishing to see if you agree with some or all of it.
I too enjoyed the benefits of working graveyard shift. I got a lot more interrupted thinking accomplished which helped me organize priorities, etc. It also helped keep me closer to God. Fewer distractions.
When I told you that you are an odd one, it was meant as an honest observation, even a compliment.
