okay, i don't know about you guys, but even though i really LOVE to talk,
i get really shy and awkward around people sometimes, and get nervous when i want to say something
i dunno, just thought it would be nice if you guys would share your thoughts/experiences on this... topic :P perhaps if you have any ideas for overcoming social awkwardness, especially in clique-y high schools, that would be nice too :D
ummmm....i guess...im kinda...socially awkward.
but thats ok! every self respecting nerd is. i do weird stuff and i dont give @#!*% (pardon my french).
i love to talk too. our difference is i talk too much and you talk too little. want to trade lives?
everyone in my school is reading the hunger games. i said to one of my friends that i love the name effie trinket( a character in the book). now everyone calls me effie trinket. its hilarious.
i guess what i'm trying to say is loosen up! find a good friend and start there. then try opening up to her/his friends.
I am extremely shy too. My schools clique but ive always been able to go from group to group. only some though. class groups have pretty much helped me get friends. that and i watch people a lot:P not in a stalker way i just see social trends. just say it. i usually dont think. i go by instincts and what watching has taught me. if you stop and think you'll only get mor enervous.
I'm sure your school has some nerds or at least kindred spirits if you look hard enough.
When I'm around people I hardly know, it's like a vacuum cleaner is forcibly shoved down my throat to suck all the words out. Except a few escape, so it's like "....fdgfhfd? sfdgfhtgrth! fsdffgf. gfdfghrtfgd gdffgd gdfss vcx..." until I'm mumbling so much you can't hear me. For the witty person I supposedly am, I just can't seem to say funny icebreakers or, you know, English. Also, I live in a small town where nerds are quite rare. It's hard to find things to talk to people about.
