I'm on an REU type thing right now and renting a room. The family is going on a picnic. My friend passed away recently and I couldn't even make the funeral (it was a few days ago). So I'm sitting on my bed (this was like 10 mins ago), internetting about and the family wants me to go on the picnic with them. Not only is it a family reunion, but for me everybody is a stranger and I don't like going out much in the first place. One of them tries to convince me to go by saying "Everything has energy, you know, from the sciences. And when you stay cooped up in your room the whole time your negative energy can't get released, so that's why you keep feeling down the whole time." I must have missed that lecture.
