Hello friends! Today I was in the mood to write another post that was true-to-the-heart. Something personal. I don't know why, I just was.
So what I decided to write about today is my personality. It's something not a lot of people grasp, to be honest. I've been told I'm shy and introverted. Sometimes I can be super professional and confident, like when meeting new people or selling yearbook advertisements. Other people think I'm super insane and loud, and they tell me to calm down. Well I'm honestly a mixture of both, and I want to explain that today.
What I'm going to call myself (for now, at least, until I know what to call it) is an introverted extrovert. A lot of people see a lot of different parts of me.
I tend to be shy in front of adults. According to my wise cousin Sonny, I'm an observer. I sit back quietly and listen to others. I observe my surroundings, but I don't say much. I think this part of me can be seen when I'm around people I don't know well. Like in certain classes. I'll be surrounded by a group of peers I don't normally talk to. So I sit there quietly and do the assignments. It's not too bad being an observer. But this is my introverted side.
My boyfriend and I will, from time to time, sit there in the basement and talk about the days when we were 'just friends'. I remember him telling me the other day that he thought it was so strange how outgoing I actually am, versus him knowing me in the past as the quiet girl at his lunch table. But now he knows the real me, the more extroverted side of me who talks about poop and chicken parmesan and Miranda Sings (even though he hates Miranda). This is the extroverted side of me.
Basically, I'm introverted at first glance. But as you get to know me, I'll share my true, dweeby self to you.
And yes. Even at school, I'll act super insane. Even to people I hardly talk to. But those are times when I'm super pumped about certain assignments and making friends and spending time with the awesome buddies I already have.
So if I'm quiet in your class, don't be afraid to talk to me. Because I love making new friends. I'm so open to knowing so many unique personalities. And I want to spend my senior year meeting more people and getting closer to the people I already know.
Thank you all so much for reading. How would you identify your personality? What would you like to have me post next? Let me know down below! -Lydia
