Yeah I still get that a lot. ): Even just sitting in a restaurant can make me super uncomfortable (especially if it’s packed and there’s heaps of noise!). Plus I just Don’t like eating in front of people haha, I’m too self-conscious!

I’d really like to be more easily casual and laid back in social settings. Even around just one person (because honestly that’s a lot worse!). I’m fine with being a wallflower though. It’s who I am in the end.

    Part of me wishes I was homeschooled as I'm still the shy type that never had the nerve to ask a childhood crush out when I was young. You'd think with the Public School setting I'd get over my shyness/social anxiety but nope. Granted I was 8 or 9 at the time and she moved away when I was in the 4th grade or 10. What made it hurt even more is that she literally lived like within 3 minutes of my house as we both lived in a Townhome complex. I was in the front and she was in the back and I could get to her house on foot in a matter of minutes(heck a minute if I literally ran). I just never got the nerve to say something. Plus if I was homeschooled, I would have had a more rigorous curriculum because the standards have been dropping by the wayside for decades now. Like seriously the stuff I had in High School is nothing like High Schoolers are getting today. I would know because my mother teaches HS Chem and I see the stuff they turn in, much less their test scores and its a joke compared to the stuff I had to do. Its not like my mom wants to keep lowering the standards either. Its these Social Justice Administrators/Bureaucrats that keep lowering the standards in order to make themselves look good. They could freaking care less if the kids learn anything.

    Next year is going to be rock bottom in terms of lowering the standards. Fifty is the new zero goes into effect(no student can get less than 50% on an assignment they didn't do), retaking tests as much as they want(eh why study for them) and equal grading(aka 0/20/40/60/80 where a 40% = C-). In other words, a student would literally have to work at failing. All it incentivizes is to basically do nothing and expect getting "paid" with a passing grade. To all potential employers out there, this is your future workforce.

      I'm shy too. I never really have any confidence in saying things in public, and ordering food is the worst!

      I'm much better with speaking with strangers because of my work and such but only if I'm ordering something or need something. As for making actual friends I'm super shy and I can barely initiate conversations (online or offline) so even if I make friends with someone I never really maintain said relationship if I move off-site or move away or something. Sad ...

        oooo ukelele. I've never played one of those before. though the only instruments i can play are the clarinet (well used to play it through band at least lol) and like... very little trumpet, flute, and piano. *very* little. mostly playing around on my brother's and sister's instruments and the electronic piano we used to have.

          I really miss being in orchestra class, especially my 7th grade year. That year all of us were well-acquainted with one-another and got along so well. I think at MPAs we got superior on sight-reading and excellent on performance.

          I would love to listen when I get the chance!

          My favourite instruments are piano, violin and harp. I’d love to learn all three. Especially the harp but they’re crazy expensive, including maintenance!

          I can just barely play piano. ^^; But uh... my fingers don’t reach far and I’m teeeerrible at using both hands, ahaha.

            Part of me wishes I explored music when I was younger. Maybe not Piano but some instrument. Granted part of me wants to learn Piano to play a number of themes/songs, one of which is in spoiler below.

            Spoiler:

            Before you criticize, this video was likely an improv(a decent one at that) and the fact he was doing a song meant to be played by multiple instruments. Crazy good as I see it. Also Code Lyoko is one of my favorite series. Corny but underrated for a low budget French Anime

              Piano is so fun to play! I've been playing ukulele for about two years and piano for a little less than two. I'm currently playing "No, the Moon" by Teen Suicide. It's such an easy and sweet piece.

              As for my voice, everyone says its cute, and I'm just like *inhales deeply* NO.

              Well, I mean, I'm nervous for people to hear my voice. And I'm nervous about messaging someone. I stop at their page and hover over the "message" button then chicken out. What's up with that?

                  Then go pull it off ;P but you'll need some backup singers to chime in when needed. Hmm... who would fit the bill?
