    It Matters

    I listen and watch and observe others and attempt to jump in when needed. Not as the nosey neighbor but as a caring individual who just hates to see others suffer. I listen... do you?

    To More Than Just Words

    People often ask me why I am usually pretty quiet, excusing the once-or-twice a month blab-fest on my part, of course. Some just assume that I am shy, but honestly, this isn't the case. I simply prefer to listen rather than speak... you definitely learn a lot more that way, not...

    Ears Not Mouth!

    I definitely prefer listening over speaking. some people don't know that, they either keep telling me to speak more or call me very  shy. i like listening, and like it when others speak more.
