    I don't get out very often out of choice. Not necessarily because I don't want to be out, but because I prefer to have a reason to be out. And honestly, I rarely have reason to go anywhere beyond school, work, the library, the gym, and to do necessary shopping and meet necessary...

    You Want Me to Go Where?

    Don't get me wrong, I go to work every day like a good girl. But I'm just not motivated to do much else. I realize how annoying people are the second I get out of the house. Within seconds, I've probably stepped in gum, or dog poop (or worse). People drive like jackasses, so once...

    It depends hugely on my friends

    and my mood. I usually go out if someone asks me and I can see myself enjoying at least some part of what that entails while not feeling as if I'm being tortured the rest of the time. Basically, I go out if my friends ask me to and I want to. Sometimes, I even propose going out...

    Boring Life

    When I was younger, I wasn't really allowed to hang out with my friends the way most teens were. That has made a huge impact on how I don't go out to do much now. I just stay at home, watch tv or do things on the computer. I have a really boring life that needs to change!
