official-function-phobic

It's a sickness I suffer. I despise attending official functions where good manners are required. I hate at the idea of the need to be sociable at official functions. I'm not arrogant, I'm just shy. I'm not good at starting conversations. I prefer staying in the sphere of my work without having the need to be sociable to others.

Having said that, I'm not entirely socially retarded when it comes to work. I do have my own network of people for work purposes. I just don't dig the idea of mingling around outside the sphere of work. Get what I mean?

On the other hand, thy boss is one person who is people friendly. She knows the important whos even if it is not work related. In some ways, I pressure myself to be one as for the benefit of long term, it is good to be seen and noticed.

Yesterday, I attended an event which to my opinion, being present or not would not make any difference since many still questions who is this tudung-clad-girl whose office is in the 10th floor? I still get that quizzical stare to date though I've started work since October last year. But the Boss says it is part of my official duty, hence attending it I must.

As expected, the event was a drab. The food was terrible. The company thankfully was not bad. At least I was seated amongst familiar faces and that saved my fear of having an awkward moment.

Thankfully this sort of event only comes once in a blue moon and I am spared from the sickness I suffer for many more months to come.

Official-function-phobic. Yes, its a sickness.
