    Why Me

    All through school and on the job when I worked some how I would end up being the one out front or leading. I never asked for this and really never wanted it.  But somehow it always ended up this way.  I liked helping and being part of things but did not want to be in...

    Never Have Liked It

    I don't like being the center of attention. Sometimes its not avoidable, courses must be straightened or as manager "riots" must be quelled. Most of the time it is easy to be a wallflower and sit back and just do what I need to do. I am quite happy that way...

    Centre Of Attention

    One thing I dislike is being the centre of attention.  If it happens it happens, it is out of my control. At school, I hated giving an oral speech in front of the class. On my wedding day, I wasn't crazy about the fact getting all the attention but I had to go...

    Paranoid

    I get really paranoid, like I have something stuck in my teeth or toothpaste on my face or something if I'm the centre of attention. It makes me sweat really bad, I can feel my whole head getting hot and itchy - feels like it's going to explode or something, then I rush my words...
