As anyone ever thought of just totally burying their heads in the sand for a while. I mean , that things are just getting you down so much that you'd rather just shut yourself away from Society and speak to nobody.

A few times i've got like that, just never been able to implement it. I don't know whether being alone for a prolonged time would be good or bad however.

As anyone actually ever done this? I know this a kind of weird thread, but i'm thinking that somebody else must have thought of this at some stage.

I understand where you are coming from. But it is immpossible to go through life without speaking to anyone etc. You have to make a living for a start if you live a life of reclusive solitude how can you make money for example? If you don't work you don't eat for a start.

Hmmm. I often think that hibernating would be pretty cool, only waking up for Christmas. I get so sick of the long winter months, getting freezing cold and ill at school

You might be able to pull it off if you're not into socialising anyway. I just can't do without rabbiting away to people though. You may also become very quirky and pick up odd habits.
I think I could probably do it because I like being on my own; having been educated at home for so long I don't really like being constantly surrounded by people, and at school I often go quiet and head for the library

Nah I usualyl enjoy socialising and am a comedian (you wouldn't think it) when around friends. Just for some unknown reason, I just want to be left alone for a time.

maybe something to do with the fact that I ahve 5 siblings who are all in the house and i am never ever alone.

Not really, I had a programming contract I could do from home, but lived in an unfamiliar area so didn't know anyone. So, basically the only people I talked to were the checkout girl at the shop and my employer once a week.
Thats the sort of job I want. But still you have to go out and buy food. It isnt possible to live in complete solitude, especially in a modern society like ours.

Last year I went through a period like that. I completely isolated myself from my friends, when before I was really chatty, and spent my lunch breaks completely alone. Now even when I feel like that I still hang around my friends, if you try to spend too much time alone it will just make it worse and worse..believe me...

I felt like this last wednesday when

- I started recieving offencive txts
- I found out I had failed my business by 3 marks. I'm telling you 3 SODDING MARKS!!!!
- A boy had I had asked out, had told everyone I had asked him out and then he turned me down in the sixth common in front of everyone just after I had found out about my business exam

so when I came home I was so depressed I spent the whole night doing Music coursework to cheer myself up - It worked.

I think that everyone has a personality and a way with socialising, just depends the people you are around.

From my experience, i would say this is very true.
