    If the people I knew in real life knew what I

    liked I think they would hate me or something. I like strange things. Nobody knows about my obsession with masks. Plus I get to meet people with similar interests as mine.

    Strangely So...

    I'm still an ackward person online or off. But, here I don't feel quite as ackward. There's a lot less "small talk" and better stories online. I feel more myself online because there's more of a social ease in the online environment. I feel more willing to talk and share than I...

    It's a lot harder for me to talk about things than it is for me to type about them.

    This is soooo true. I express myself in ways I

    never could irl and can indulge in it. But, honestly, one of the things I like best about it is other people are the same way. Obviously, it's limited, but there's the potential for so much more sharing without the complications of real bodies, families, spouses, jobs, etc.
