Sometimes I try to be cool. And then I end up failing miserably.
Luckily my friends have embraced my quirky outbursts and have dubbed them as 'cute', and not at all crazy or insane. Well, at least that's what they tell me to my face. They might actually think I'm insane.
But I digress.
I think I scare people (more specifically really cool guys) away because I get too excited about things. I've been told on more than one occasion that I'm 'too intense'. What's worse is that if my actions aren't pointed out to me I go for days completely oblivious that I looked like an idiot because I spazzed out over meeting someone who has also read Pygmy. Whenever I start a new project or get involved with a new group I get really passionate about EVERY aspect of the organization/project. Sometimes I can see where I can come off as too intense, but at least people know that I don't half ass anything.
Although I do wish I could be cool and mysterious, I'm cool with people thinking that I'm 'cute' when I spazz out.
