Here are some things that I'd like my new college friends to know about me.

  • I'd like to understand you if you'll let me in.
  • I've forgotten everything I learned in AP Bio, but if it's important and it means something to you, I will never forget it.
  • I am an introvert, if you haven't noticed already. Don't push me. Listen to me. 
  • I'm an idealist. Sometimes I live in a fantasy world with people and successes that can't really exist. When I see people like that in real life, I can't stop smiling about it.
  • But whenever it feels like things are going right, something comes around to make it all wrong. Please be there for me when that happens.
  • I'll be there for you when it happens. 
  • Yeah, I'm sappy and corny and cheesy sometimes. Can't help it. Embrace it.
This is turning into just a list of personality traits.
  • Sometimes I won't say anything. It doesn't mean I'm not interested, it means I'm observing rather than participating.
  • Being with people for too long drains my energy. 
  • If I'm stressed out, it doesn't mean I want to be alone. Stay with me, please?
  • I can get really insecure and I overthink everything. Just let me know what's on your mind and I'll let you know what's on mine. I've found that things end up better that way.
  • I don't have as much experience as I might exude.
  • I want to see you happy. Not fake happy. Actual happy.
  • I've been used, taken advantage of. It makes me a cynic. If you can gain my trust, I will consider it a personal goal to gain yours.
  • The two things I hate the most are feeling weak and being controlled. Also, I don't get sick. Sickness is weakness.
  • I believe in crying. I don't think crying is weakness, I think it's a way to express your feelings, something that everyone should be freely able to do. Without judgment.
Get to know me. I don't bite. Actually.

Goddamn, orgo just never ends.
