    Almost Killed A Guy.

    A little over a year ago I had met this guy while I was out on the town. I somewhat knew him as he had gone to my school, but he was a little older so we had never talked much then. So, we get talking and after that I would see him around more often. This got me a little...

    This is an awkward situation

    for my hand. I have one of those paper wristbands that you have to wear for certain places and it's hard to tear so I tried slipping it off my hand and now it's stuck. It's still stuck and it's hard to type. It kinda hurts. It just feels really weird and I don't feel like...

    I think I have social anxiety

    and always could not mingle when I am in large groups , I feel so useless and powerless when I see crowds of people but when the target audience is smaller I feel more confident to talk to them. Btw I am asian so my social skills would be more worse off compare to westerners

    Ever post something and someone thinks its

    about them but it's not. Then they ask is it about them or say awe thank you, and u don't want to hurt them or make things awkward. So u just go ahead and let them think that or just be like ummm yeah suuurrrree. Even tho your really thinking something else.
