    I am. I am introverted, shy, reclusive. I am a dreamer/thinker. I keep my thoughts and dreams to myself. I keep myself to myself, really.

    I used  to be very shy when I was younger. As I got older, that changed to...timid, and at this stage of the game, I'd call myself reserved, definitely.
