I like getting people to tell me what they think/thought of me only because it means more stories, and people have the most interesting stories sometimes.
Amusingly enough, an IRL friend (who’s also on Tumblr but never uses it) told me the first time she met me she thought I was an angry, shy person who didn’t know how to socialize. And that she was kinda scared of me because I always seemed so serious and was always reading and glared at anyone who interrupted my reading. (And this is me laughing all through her telling me). And only later when we ended up being in the same school club did she figure out no, I know perfectly well how to socialize and gee, I can even be charming sometimes, and I just prefer being alone. And my solitude was something I enforced, not something I didn’t know how to end. And then came this whole slew of really funny and memorable stories of our three years together.
It’s just interesting how that works out.
I remembered because people here are going around asking for ‘X’s and ‘Hi’s and replying with first impressions and things and I want to know all your stories. Tell me all the stories.
