    Recently Discovered

    I recently discovered that I write a hell of a lot better than I speak. When trying to get my point across to someone it's just better for me to write them a letter or an email or even send them a text message because when I try to tell them the words just don't come out. I can...

    I Write Like A Fool, But I Talk Like An Idiot.

    I have always been a poor speaker. I stutter, and I have another speech-impediment. It's even worse when I get nervous. Also, I have been told that my inflections are all wrong, and that I have no facial expressions, both making it almost impossible for me to strike up, or keep a...
