    Usually whenever I try to explain

    or describe something to somebody, I ALWAYS end up stuttering and fumbling my words around. Even when I tell a joke, it ends horribly and no one laughs. But writing, typing, and texting? I can keep going on and on. My words just flow out like liquid and my vocabulary suddenly...

    I Hate One-on-one Conversation

    It's excruciatingly awkward and frustrating for me. It's a burden to always keep thinking of "stuff" to talk about. I don't have a wide range of knowledge, so I'm afraid of getting something wrong or revealing my total ignorance. I don't like to grill people, or ask them a lot of...

    The ice cold chill from my single pain window

    woke me from a dead slumber. I lay in bed cocooned in the down comforter listening to the rain pitter patter outside. The slate grey cloud cover blankets the early morning sky and my mind wanders off into the idea of rain wetting and cleansing the earth. I find myself engulfed...

    I hate conflict. I freeze like a deer in front

    of headlights. My throat chokes up, my eyes fill up and even if I know exactly what I need to say, I feel sorry for the person in front of me and can't force myself to hurt them. It is so much easier to write it all down (if it's someone I care about) and explain exactly what I...

    Half of the things I share on the Internet,

    I would never share with anyone in real life... ^____^ I guess it's probably because writing things down gives me more confidence than saying them out loud. ^^

    The Intelligent Idiot

    I can express myself a lot better through writing than I can through talking. I enjoy writing and I like to think I am good at it. When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my point across effectively. However, every time I open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total idiot...

    Speaking allows for far too many complications.

    I stumble and butcher the words when, in my mind, they sound mellifluous. With writing, it sounds the way I want it to every time

    I don't consider myself to be a great writer,

    We are the sum of our experiences.

    .. I only have 31 Am I summed up by all of these?Do they judge me for these? My favorite part is the anonymity, even if you can't relate, even if you choose to hate, You won't ever know me.

    Once upon a time, this was not the case

    for me. There was a time when words naturally fell off the tip of my tongue and wove itself naturally. That was when I had not a care in the world and could say whatever I felt at the time. Growing up though, I face rejection, odd looks, people taking offense and worst of all...

    My essay teacher said

    that I'm really good at essays, and the fact that I got 20/25 of my essay writing on my English Proficiency Certificate, makes me believe that I might be good. I like writing about interesting staff anyway.

    I've always been the one

    I am shy, I have always been,

    and that's why I have always expressed myself better using written words than spoken ones. Spoken words can be caresses, but arrows too. I see written words as vessels, taking their shipment of thoughts, feelings, from one port to another.

    I've recently given one of my favorite teachers

    my first legit story, and this was a little bit ago, she hasn't given it back yet. The story was an outline, it was fifteen pages front and back, I know my handwriting is bad, but I know she can read it. Do I ask for it back or do I wait for her to give it back?

    than I can speak. I love it. It voices my voice without even being voiced. You may read it one way and I may read it in a whole different way. That, and no one really listens these days. They just pretend to be listening. Some people do listen and I love those people. But I just...

    I have had problems with speech

    I'm known in my workplace

    and school as being more fluent with my hands than words, but people also compliment my writing skills. One day, my classmates decided to sneak up and tie my hands with another mate's tie and I was stuttering and disjointed for that point in time.

    I don't know what I would do without writing.

    I can't really explain anything without trying multiple times, which is good for writing, because you can edit, revise, and edit some more. I love creative writing because I can do anything. I can live through my characters, by having them do the things I can't. It's really...

    It's Not Easy Being A Non-alpha

    Some of us out there are just not wired to be outgoing. We know exactly what we want to say, but a lot of the time it just comes out wrong. We are often every bit as intelligent as those who are talkative, many times even more so. But some of us just aren't blessed with the...
