    No One Is In the Room

    At work, I constantly walk by the small mailroom when no one is there and would see the lights on.  I used to turn them off but I've just given up.  I don't care.  It's not my electric bill.

    I'm a different person online than I am in real life. I talk more and act more natural on the internet and just stay quiet, observing my surrounding in the world.
