    Story Of My Life

    Really cute girl sits next to me on the bus. I'm too scared to talk to her, so instead I sit there silently trying not to make eye contact. Sigh.

    I couldn't keep a conversation going

    or make a situation not awkward if my life depended on it. I am the type of person who will not go up to someone and start a conversation, and when some one finally starts a conversation with me I make it awkward. It never works out for me.

    well to not be shy and/or awkward around you and sometimes even that doesn't work.

    I have the same problem.

    I think the reason why is because no matter how hard you try, not every one is going to like you. All you can do is just try your best.

    I've always know that I can be very awkward

    but sometimes it's more apparent, like yesterday at work. I was working at the cash register and the customer used a credit card to pay for their food, so when the receipt came out, I snatched it quickly, grabbed the pin so he could sign it. It sounds normal but if you could've...
