    I Like Being At Home.

    I stay home a lot except a few days a week I'm away from home in the mornings. I stay home a lot because I'm comfortable being at home than to be around people. Also because of my social anxiety, I don't go out as much as I like anymore. I'm comfortable playing video games...

    Who Knows For Certain.

    "Hello, my name is Aiken, and I stay at home most of the time." I don't know why I do. No, that's a lie- I know exactly why I do. It's most likely from the lack of money I have to go out and spend. It could also be contributed to the fact that my social circle has...

    I like to stay home. i don't drink

    and i don't dance so i figure whats the point in going out to clubs. Movies are too expensive to go out and see on a regular basis when you are out of work or only working part time. and going out on a dinner date isn't likely either since i don't get asked out for some strange...
