Opinion: Lisa Barber-Taylor–My time at the Observer

I am not a fan of groups, group dynamics or myself in a group. I am typically uncomfortable and overly self-aware/self-conscious while in a group. Typically, I remain quiet and simply observe others when in a group, largely out of a sense of nervousness and mistrust. (I hypothesize that I never successfully integrated into a group in any of the situations of my life: grade school, high school, college, work, roller derby, dance class, art class, traveling, in the grocery store, not even in my own family at family dinners, birthday parties or get-togethers.) This being the case, I typically am not a joiner, as my dad calls it.
