Being an introvert, I’d rather spend my evenings in than going out. That being said, I also like to entertain! Group gatherings at one’s place are typically more relaxing, socially engaging, and overall enjoyable in my personal introverted opinion.

While I like entertaining, I also live in a one bedroom apartment. It’s perfect for me, but when it comes to large gatherings, I’m a little challenged.
