Avoid Humans

post by Michelle Griep
It always surprises people when I label myself an introvert. But I am. Sure, I can paste on a smile and yuk it up for awhile, but I need me some alone time to recharge. Like lots of alone time. Like I turn into a raging axe murderer if I'm with too many people for too long of a time. Thankfully, I've never reached the manslaughter limit of my aversion to people because I discovered a magical website that I'd love to share with all the other loners out there.

Yeah, I know. Great name, right? Here's how it works. You click on the link and then allow the site to figure out where in the world you're located. Using that information, it draws from a real-time database (based on Instagram and Foursquare check-ins) to let you know which places in your area are currently housing the least amount of humans.

The information is broken down into four categories: food, coffee, nightlife and refuge. Coffee shops are the one I care about most because that's where I do the bulk of my writing. I don't mind a little noise, in fact I thrive on it. But if the shop is full and I can't even find a place to sit down, that's annoying. All I do is click on the site and it brings up other coffee shops for me to go with less humans.

You might want to copy this site down. With the holidays coming, finding a quiet corner is always a challenge.
