For Being "The Quiet One"

I have a reputation for being shy and quiet, but I love to do things outside of that reputation and see everyone's reactions. People are not limited in their reputations. I think people underestimate me sometimes. They see me as extremely nice and sweet, and incapable of even being angry. I have had a few people ask me if I have ever been angry before, saying they couldn't imagine it. I never realized that people saw me to that extreme. It's partly true, but I surprise people a lot, and I love doing it. It's so funny to see everyone's reactions when I do things out of character. For instance, I am in drama in school and I got a part in the play of a very mean nurse that yells at everyone to be quiet. I screamed "quiet", one of my lines, at the top of my lungs one day. Everyone was shocked, many said they flinched, and people I have never even talked to before came up to me to compliment me. It was so great! I actually scared everyone; they weren't expecting it. I love seeing this side of myself. Lately, I have been bringing my confidence from drama into real life, so hopefully others will soon begin to believe that I am no longer my reputation too!

I, too, am a "quiet one" and it forever shocks my acquaintances when I snap and yell at someone!
