    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...

    Skydiving Is Insanely Fun

    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...

    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...
