    Changes

    I have always been somewhat a loner. When I was younger I was sick a lot so I was used to be by my self, or only with my family. As I grew up and started school I had no idea how to talk with the kids in my class. I remember going everyday to school, sitting in my seat, never...

    Looking For A Change

    I have always felt I am a bit of a loner and a natural introverse, that's a fact. During the elementary and middle school I was very embarrassed in talking to girls, while it was easy to go on well with boys, thanks to football (I'm from Italy and almost every boy plays football...

    I am, and that Is just the way it is.

    Never been one to have friends, make fake friends or buy buddies.   Some have tried to understand me and have been on the sidelines for decades, but I just am not able to pretend to care about the latest pop culture gossip or the famiiy woes...

    I Like People But ...

    Through my life I've felt more comfortable when I'm alone. I'll seek others out from time to time but when I'm alone I get to do what I want and I don't have to compromise. When I'm hanging out with others I'm agreeable to what they want to do but I enjoy my time alone doing...

    Skydiving Is Insanely Fun

    Every person belongs to a group, be it an age group, a gender group or a base ball team. It gives comfort and a somewhat misleading feeling of safety. In return every group has its membership fee. The fee limits the access. Being convinced that the ultimate...

    Lone Wolf

    As much as I wish that I had friends, I prefer to hang out alone. I get lonely sometimes and wish I had people that I could talk to, but hate the process of getting to know people. Awkwardness is public enemy number 1. The meeting stages always feature awkward pauses, which are...

    I have naturally down turned lips so people assume i'm either angry or sad. I'm quiet and socially awkward so my face just adds more misunderstandings for me between people.
