    I Can Be. Very Much.

    I can be very quiet and reserved when I'm not in the mood and I can also be a really hard egg to crack. I don't feel like talking at times or have a hard time telling people how I feel. Sometimes I don't want to be like this. Sometimes I just can't help it. But sometimes I can...

    To Thine Ownself Stay

    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.
