    All the time. Thank goodness

    for cell phones and headphones. At least now when I am walking down the street babbling away, people may assume I'm talking on the phone.

    Just be who you are. Be grateful

    and humble. Be smart about your actions and don't try so hard to be someone you think is better than you. Sometimes we have to go around life learning about this the hard way.

    When I cannot put certain situations into words

    in order to tell people, I talk to myself and it usually helps to find the right words.

    I sometimes talk to myself

    and act out my thoughts too! It's entertaining, but really embarrassing when it happens in public! Imagine a girl who smiles or laughs when looking at the ground, the sky, clothes, etc.; or that suddenly has a shocked or confused expression. Yup, that's me. :D

    I have the tendency to talk to myself

    when agitated or excited and alone. It's been a growing habit of mine since high school. It's not like I'm going crazy or anything. It's kind of my way of expressing myself when there's nobody around. It's a little embarrassing to think about, but I get a weird sense of...
