One of Those Days…

Tiny Houses on Tiny Islands

Posted in architecture, introvert with tags , on November 8, 2009 by shewalkssoftly

Even as an adult, the whole idea of a “secret hideaway” never lost its appeal. I still daydream about escaping to tiny cabins in the middle of nowhere to be alone with books, projects or a special someone.

The Tiny House Blog has a nice little collection of island cabins.

Something about these isolated capsules of comfort is almost meditative.

Granted, they are not the most convenient locations, and in the event of a storm or intense food craving (both of which are equally severe in my opinion) you’re pretty much out of luck.

However, I’d be willing to chance it for a few days and simply show up fortified with oil lanterns and an array of sweets.

Ninja of the Sea

Coolest ten seconds I’ve seen in a while.

I can relate to this creature sometimes.

This is the best card I’ve seen in a long time. Perfect for sweet, mild-mannered girls like me, who happen to possess a wicked cynical streak.

This lovely design is a product of Gramkin Paper Studio.

Thanks to this post, I’ve decided to add an “introvert” tag.

The Introvert Bench

Ah, another concept for me and my fellow introverts (I’ve already shown you the Introvert Sweater and the maximum privacy furniture piece: Sensory Deprivation Skull. Now there’s a bench to follow suit.

I can’t help but smirk at the blatant disregard for practicality in favor of personal space.

The Sensory Deprivation Skull

And I thought the Introvert Sweater provided privacy!

At first glance I took this for a desk accessory of some sort. Little did I know, it’s a sensory deprivation chamber!

Worries about maintaining adequate oxygen levels aside, I’d like to spend a few minutes meditating in here. At the very least it would make an interesting conversation piece when friends and family visit, only to find a giant skull in the corner.

The Introvert Sweater

Posted in advertising, craft, introvert with tags , , on August 16, 2008 by shewalkssoftly

I am a card-carrying Introvert, so these woolly suits from a French detergent advertising campaign made me smile. For some reason, I find them far more appealing than the Laptop Body Sock that made the blog rounds last year.

Wiki has a decent brief summary of the typical Introvert:

Introversion is “the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one’s own mental life”. Introverts tend to be low-key, deliberate, and relatively less engaged in social situations. They often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, drawing, watching movies, and using computers. The archetypal artist, writer, sculptor, composer and inventor are all highly introverted. An introverted person is likely to enjoy time spent alone and find less reward in time spent with large groups of people (although they tend to enjoy interactions with close friends). They prefer to concentrate on a single activity at a time and like to observe situations before they participate.

Introversion is not the same as shyness. Introverts choose solitary over social activities by preference, whereas shy people avoid social encounters out of fear.

An introvert is energized when alone. Introverts tend to “fade” when with people and can easily become overstimulated with too many others around. Introverts tend to think before speaking.

AMEN.
