I'm in ASHEVILLE!! :)
Instead of trying to beat them, join them, shan. You may get frustrated and angry with those who are having more fun than you. Instead of trying to rain on their parade and make them think that they need to be working too, why don't you just join in the fun and have a good time yourself. Take a moment out of your busy day to enjoy yourself and the people you are with. Encourage the positive upbeat spirit instead of getting down on it.
