    Everytime I go out. I throw down.

    I am the life of the party but I never spend one on one time with people. I wish I could chill but it's too uncomfortable

    I enjoy doing simple things.

    Netflix, casual coffees or dinner with friends.. Things like this. But there's always a part of mind that tells me "you're wasting your life, you should be doing more things, crazier more adventurous things, everyone else you know has a more interesting life than you, and is a...

    I'm In A Cocoon

    I'm no social butterfly. I still go out and hang out with other people, but not often. I intimidate people with how antisocial I am. "Asocial" a friend called me once since I'm not against the socializing, I just don't do it. I want to. It's more fun being around other people. I...

    Lonely And Miserable

    Nowadays I find myself more lonely and miserable. It makes me think about getting out of my shy shell and making friends because company makes a person much happier. I think that is why I push for a family too, because when you have a family you're never lonely right?

    It Just Didn't Seem The Easiest Thing.

    In my teenage years I always had good friends but I was very much a stay at home girl, I wouldn't be out every weekend. I spent a lot of time in my room, and I was fairly content although I would get bored or lonely sometimes. It wasn't that I was antisocial, it just seemed that...
