obviously the more you spend time with people, the more comfortable you get around them. but for a while, i felt a little lost. i know i totally come off as obnoxious sometimes (actually, more than sometimes) so maybe (okay, most definitely) that can turn some people off. but i think some people mistake that sliver of my personality for the whole deal. lately i think that i’m exposing more of myself than the character that people perceive me to be (or at least i think they interpret me as– who really knows) and doing so has been good to me. i feel more at ease with so many more people and my happiness is at an all time high.
