So you think I'm a snob...

Can't tell you how many times I've heard people whispering this about me or had friends say they used to think this about me.  Let me share a bit with you on this:

I am an introvert.  I am quiet by nature.  I observe everyone very closely before opening my mouth or sometimes even before making my presence known.  I wanted to become a sociologist and study people for a living.  I should have stuck with it.  It's what I do.  Everyday.  I watch people.  Creepy, right ?!  Ha!

I am a closet extrovert.  I used to enjoy taking pills because they took me out of my head and I could be the person I think I should have been if my life could be different.  I was fun. And funny.  I had lots of friends around me all the time.  I dream of being friends with lots of people, but in reality my circle is actually quite minuscule.  It takes a lot for me to call you friend.  I don't easily trust, and I don't put myself "out there" often.

My brother and momma are extroverts.  I want to be like them.  But I am not; I am just me.  Much to their annoyance at times.  They can be loud and draw in an entire room.  They like to have fun and do so frequently.

If you are in search of a great support person behind the scenes, I'm your girl.  I'll love you even when you fail and I'll drink coffee with you any time.  I need caffeine to function, so I'm always up for a cup o' joe.  If you need a shopping partner, I'm there.  I love to shop for deals especially.  My highschool buddy used to recommend everyone Christmas shop with me.  My door is always open and my heart is always ready to listen and support.  I love me, most of the time. How about you?
