    Especially if I'm waiting

    for someone. Or I just play games. AND thanks to earphones! I can just listen to songs while waiting.

    How To Turn Six Dollars Into Six Thousand

    I do this when I'm with my family .

    They only seem to criticize me about things that I do . So talking on the phone or texting myself is way better then just listening to them. Especially if they have nothing nice to say..

    I actually created a note on my phone called

    'Fake Conversations'... Lol, I know, pathetic. Whenever I find myself in an awkward situation, I pull my phone out and go to that note. I pretend I'm texting someone, but I'm honestly just making up a fake texting conversation between two fake people. Hey! Don't judge!

    Usually with people who I don't talk to,

    who aren't close to me. I just don't feel comfortable with such strange conversations..

    I always do this. And

    if I'm walking into a social event where I'm not sure I will know anyone I do the same thing - so I don't look lost. :/

    Especially if it's a situation

    where someone is likely to talk to me, I'm glad I keep my earphones with me at all times. Because I cannot talk to people, not do I really want to, since I hate small talk. I'm so happy earphones exist, since most people feel too awkward to talk to someone while they're...
