I Stay Quiet Because

    I'm always "that" kid who sits in the back of class and never speaks a word unless I'm forced to. If we're being forced to read aloud in class, I get so nervous that my heart...

    The reason why I'm so quiet is because you're either boring me into silence or I really just don't like you. Plain and simple.

    I tend to be quiet when with friends and family because I believe it's polite. I know that's not exactly how it works but it's just a natural feeling I guess.

    I get asked that a lot. I'm an observer. If I'm quiet than that means I'm taking in my surroundings/ people watching. I do it all the time and it's nothing personal.
