Today: Go it alone

Leave a comment

Just danceAccording to a Meyers-Briggs personality assessment from late 2002, I am an introvert.  And while I’m no hermit, there are some things I like doing alone.  And then there are those things I would much prefer to do in the company of a partner-in-crime.  Attending a Bollywood dance-off would generally fall into the second category.

After trying in vain to recruit a friend or two, I showed up to Life in Synergy‘s Bay Back studios on Friday night completely alone (to be fair, I knew one of Nick’s co-workers would also be there, but since I’d never met her, I think I was still technically, completely alone).  This was my first visit (first class is free!), but I had the wherewithal to read their FAQ’s and remembered to bring a combo lock for the lockers.  What I forgot to remember was the combo-nation.

Anyway, the instructors divided everyone into two groups and taught the dance to Slumdog Millionaire‘s “Jai Ho.”  I probably looked like a reeeeal fool, but I had an absolute blast.  After everyone learned the moves, the two groups combined and we performed in smaller groups.  I laughed, I cried “Jai ho!” and I perspired like a man.  All by myself.

Also On Tap for Today:

  • Donate platelets (even though I planned to take a summer vacation from being voluntarily stabbed)
  • Pack up all my books, which are sorted by color
  • Diagnose myself with insanity

Have you ever ditched (or been ditched by) the group and gone it alone?  What are your tips for not looking like a social outcast?
