Right now, I'm the happiest I've been, not only in years, but in my life.

The real me is not people friendly or something most people would enjoy being around. I just put up a front while I work so people won't bother me. I only show my real self to 2 people in my life. Rest usually can't handle it or understand well enough.

I'm pretty bad at social interaction's with new people, hell even friends at times. I don't like to voice my opinion's on things since I think that peoples preconceived notion's about some of the things I'm into would be a nuisance to properly explain and it's not worth my time. I need to work on my communication skills, I'm not the worst but I'm bad. I don't have a passion in life right now, when I think I do I realize it was just a delusion so now I don't know but since I've had the opportunity to cultivate 2 skill's I'll probably make a career out of that. I have a lot of uncertainty in my life not to say that it's a bad thing but it would be cool if somethings were more clear.

I don't really know how people perceive me...they always say I'm quiet but nice (as if being quiet is bad) and weird XD I don't know what they mean by "weird"

How do I see myself? I'm too negative and hateful towards myself so I better not go there.


It's okay to be weird, just be yourself

Hmmm.....a chance at confessing and honesty....well...

I'm convinced I'm the only person under 50 in North America who loves to collect stamps.

I still speak Penn German because that's what I grew up around and my mom spoke constantly at home. Once at a friend's chrismatic church I had a woman have a loud babble fest right in my face and pretty much got felt up by her because I was talking in Deitsch to my husband and she thought I was speaking tongues in the spirit.

I'm generally very outgoing when I feel comfortable enough but otherwise I'm very quiet and prefer to be either alone or with someone who can handle a comfortable silence without feeling awkward.

I met my husband on the internet.

I have almost no social graces once you become my friend and you better get used to me farting because I ain't going to leave the room. Once you're in my inner circle I'm too honest to shield you from the aftermath of my breakfast burrito.

Ha! You're not the only one who lacks social graces.
You haven't met me yet, I'm the quietest person I've ever seen. But on the internet I talk more for some reason.

Let it all out here.

Please be respectful to others. ^^

If you're looking for what I hold back, it is often anger. Not anger at one individual thing but everything I see that is wrong, but it is impossible to hold everything back.


What kills you right now but can't do anything about it?

I'm no longer the white-hot ball of rage I used to be but I still have difficulty talking naturally with most strangers/new people unless they give off a certain vibe that makes me feel that they are not the conniving type. I've always been naturally distrustful of people and I always feel that I need to have an outward display that is at least somewhat dignified. It takes me longer than many other people to lower my guard and, when I do, I usually do not fully lower it. I can come off as sort of a square, serious type but I'm pretty much only like that when I need to be around other people.

I also have trouble dealing with people who are too honest and/or emotional. I am not used to talking about or completely expressing my true emotions since I am very quiet and have always been like this. Just a few minutes of continuous talking is enough to make my throat tired, and I really don't remember the last time I ever screamed/yelled/spoke very loudly. I've always been better at writing than speaking.

Well, I'm still nice and respectful to new people so I don't come off as judgmental or as a person who is always in a bad mood. I just prefer to keep others at arm's length. It's easier for me to socialize without punctuating the conversation with silence if I drink, so I prefer to drink a little before going out or when I'm out already.

The good thing is I don't really have any pains or regrets. I've changed a lot in the past decade and it has all been for the better.

Around this time last year, I started taking time off of school due to illness. Other than the monthly appointments and hanging out with my friends bimonthly, I haven't gone out much. Fortunately, I've become a lot healthier since last year. I do however, have mixed feelings about when and how I'm going to step into the real world again. I pretty much failed my first year of college, so I'd like to go back knowing I can handle it this time around.

But yeah, other than that, I'm just a Gintama loving bastard.

I think i'm fairly introverted. I don't have many friends because I let my judgement get the better of me. I'm always running multiple scenarios through my head before I confront somebody. Mental visualization I think is what it's called. But in the end, I always back down because of it. I feel like I always keep my emotions pent up, like a chemical reaction just waiting to happen. I know when I drink, I turn into "that depressed guy" who cries all the time and complains about existentialism, social anxiety, and stuff. Socializing with people I don't know, in person, gets me anxious as hell. I avert my eyes and fidget with my phone or whatever. I become envious of the people around me but I never let it overcome me. But sometimes...just sometimes, I just wanna let loose and act stupid...if that makes sense.
