EXPANDING MY CIRCLE

I have always considered myself to be a social person, but a lot of the social aspect stops at the environment I met the specific person. For instance, if I meet someone in class that I think is pretty dope I might talk to them a lot in class and have that thought,¬†They would be…

STRUGGLING TO KEEP CONNECTIONS

One thing that I have talked loosely about is my struggle to maintain connections. I love meeting new people and making friends, but I am not that good at actually going out and executing the task at hand. When people intimidate me, even if I would want to be there friend, I will not approach…
