"If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?":

I honestly wish I was more naturally outgoing. I may seem outgoing, but it's not always me. When I was younger, I was very shy. With my friends in my neighborhood, I was a normal kid. In school, I was pretty damned quiet. Every year in elementary school, I was in some sort of accelerated program. Not with other kids, but they would make something up for me. When I was in first grade, I had to go to one of the second grade classrooms for reading. Stuff like that. That definitely made me an outcast. I had very few friends at school, and until I started playing sports during recess I rarely hung out with anyone. I was still very quiet until 9th grade. At that point, I more or less forced myself to be outgoing. I started cracking jokes, being a loudmouth, being very opinionated, etc etc. It still feels like a show, a farce, to this day.
