Gatherings attended:

I doubt I'll be attending any future gatherings. It's becoming increasingly difficult for me to function in any kind of social/crowd setting, even among people I know. It'd be easier on everyone if I just stayed home from now on. Besides, gatherings seem to have become pretty rare compared to the days of yore.
