    I Hate It...

    It's weird, I've never liked groups of people. I get so nervous and self-conscious, and I always find myself trying to make myself invisible so nobody will talk to me. At the same time, I kind of wish somebody would talk to me so I wouldn't feel left out. XD Especially with...

    Females are so lucky they do not have to deal with morning wood. It can just be a little frustrating on your own, but very awkward when around family or friends.
