Hello [07 Mar 2015|12:02am]

Wow, pretty quiet here.

I just joined this community, so I'm saying hi. I'm not strictly a hermit but I interact very little with other people, and I'm not in any hurry to change that. I'd like to have a couple more LJ friends, but I'm very picky about that.

Hi [27 Aug 2009|06:16pm]

I guess people would probably call me a recovering hermit. Personally I find the absence of human contact calming but ultimately I got bored of people pestering me to go out and ran out of money. So I got a job, for the family business which was a mistake because no-one gets up in your face quite like family do, but hey at least they won't fire me when I have a bi weekly loss of patience...

Currently I'm fine tuning the ability to mentally shut out other people. It's going pretty well but I have to fight back the urge to throttle them when they chatter away to no-one in particular and then expect me to have paid attention to the whole irrelevant monologue. If you are talking to me you had better make damn sure you flag it before you start talking because if you don't I'm really not going to put in the effort to listen.

All in all it's better than being poor and having to go down the jobcentre to get patronised so I can handle it. I still end up making the occasional break for freedom but I haven't yet got further than a hundred miles from home before grudgingly admitting that I will actually have to turn around and go back.

So anyway. Hello.

my introduction [25 Aug 2009|10:02am]

I found out about this community and would like to introduce myself.

Most of my life i have been to myself not needing to be around many people. I don't keep up with much of television anymore since i got my fill all during my high school years.....MTV will never be the same...lol. Unlike many within my age group i am not out there living the wild life or as some people say doing what "young people" should do.

I am mostly low key and don't mind hanging out with someone that can be trusted. I have to many interest ranging from personalities, psychology, what makes us tick, and all the interesting tidbits that make us human. Love to research and read so books and the net have become good friends. I started writing after my high school years mainly as a release. So basically i am the guy that can blend in and disappear without being noticed. I hope to read the future posting in this community.

I am a hermit that has to find work that I can stand.  I have to leave my apartment. Ugh. I don't know what I am capable of doing because I tend to act like a freak - stressing and being snippy - when in public.  Anyone have any suggestions?
I would just like to live in a cob house I built myself and write and paint and have goats outside.

Hello hermits [23 Jul 2006|01:36am]

[ mood | content ]

Hi, just introducing myself.

I'm 24, live in England. I've always had a problem with anxiety, small episodes that cropped up as weird behaviour once a year. A few years back I was a full blown agoraphobic and couldn't leave the house for a few months. But now I feel I can deal with it, even if I do have mild anxiety.

Now I've got all that dull stuff out of the way. I've always been a hermit, but until a few minutes ago when I discovered this community I didn't really know there was a term for it. I like being alone, people - depending on my mood - bore, anger, annoy, frustrate, sicken, tire me. My favourite part of the day is at night, when everyone else is asleep. There's nothing better than driving through the streets at night when no one is around. God bless the 24hr supermarkets! But I prefer to be inside, venturing out into the sun only when I have to for supplies etc. I've just graduated so this means venturing out a lot more to earn money, but I can't wait until I have my own place where I can be a happy hermit in my own hermit hole.

And I can't think of anything else to say.

[ mood | hermit like ]

i don't watch mainstream television dramas or sitcoms anymore  --  haven't in years.  i have never actually seen a "house" --  i have never seen a "lost"  --  i have never seen a "big brother"  --  i have never seen a "survivor" past the very first season  --  i have never seen a "queer as folk"  --  i have never seen an "arrested development"  (though that's the one i regret missing)  --  i have never seen a "fat actress" --   i have never seen a CSI spinoff  --  i have never seen a law&order spinoff  --  i have never seen a "desperate housewives"  --   i will not have MTV or music video porn whatever on in my house at all, so award shows for least-dressed and other crap are out of the question  --  the only drama i've seen recently is "the west wing" which my father will have on at his house when it's important; and my mother has shown me bits and pieces of house because she absolutely adores hugh housey.

i deal with words, myself.  little words.  big words.  words on a page.  in books.  i read.  i study.  i put words on pages too.  polyphiloprogenitive.  *nod*

"If you answered no to "you do not work or go to school outside the home", all other questions you agreed with are void. Why don't you go play with your friend the sun, outsider."

Since joining this group, I've gotten a job where I sometimes even work outside. And I have to interact with people. I frequently have to meet *NEW* people and be around them for days at a time. Even though I keep to myself while I’m at work as much as possible, i'm still breaking the Golden Hermit Rule (I go on fishing boats and play with sea creatures. I avoid the fishermen. I love the hermit crabs.)

Sometimes, I have to call people on the *gasp* TELEPHONE. One day I called 114 people.

I'm no longer a hermit. O_O

Chase me out of the community. I’m not worthy. :(

My life doesn't suck but I'm homeschooled and don't know anybody in real life

[05 Dec 2005|09:03am]

They say that women, if asked without looking down to describe in detail the clothing they're wearing, could rattle off every item to the last piece of fluff hanging for their sweaters.

...half the time I have absolutely no idea what I'm wearing, and I've made it a great source of distress as of late. Yesterday I actually dared to go outside *le gasp* and realized that not only did I have to change out of my comfortable hermitly robes, but that out of some consideration for those I was accomapnying I had to make some effort to dress well.

It got me thinking (I have way too much time)...what are your hermitly robes? PJs? Jeans? Are you usually aware of them at all? Or do your clothes just sort of blend in to your surroundings?
