    When it comes to drawing, you gotta keep trying. If you look at some of my art in the TWD Fanart thread, you can see what I can do

  • That's Bosnia for ya :D

    Ikr, I should've blazed one at 4:20. I was high already tho, because that day I was awake for about 20 hours and it was leg day at the gym. That's the closest thing you're gonna get to flying.

  • Yeah I’m a little weird in that way if I’m just talking to one person that I just met I could at anytime be myself or I could just tell some cringe joke. But when I’m talking or presenting something to a crowd of people I can’t stop stuttering even if I had a piece of paper to read from.

  • Leg day? What's that haha?

  • It's pretty much an entire workout session dedicated to legs and it will screw with your muscles so much to the point where it feels weird/painful when you want to sit on the toilet. That stuff goes away overtime but you're pretty much fucked for three/four days straight.

  • I have very poor communication skills and it's always hard for me to hold up a conversation by myself or go out of my way to meet new people.

  • Dang, that's too masochist(ish) for me.

    Thanks for explaining though. :)

  • Well, most guys that go to the gym don't work on their legs often, so they look like cartoon characters with really large arms and torsi, but their legs are like sticks. Not me tho I'm a smart boi.

  • Hahhahahahaha omg. That pic. Yeah..I definitely agree.

    You really don't see guys worrying about their legs often.

  • Unfortunately, I do a bit. I've always been shy and weird, but as I began to reach my teenage years, I just became more so. When I was younger, I could actually share my opinions, start a conversation and joke with my friends, at least. Now though, I'm often incapable of even talking to my them, most of whom I've known for nearly my whole life, and while they're constantly trying to encourage me to spend time with them, I can't help feeling as though i'm drifting away from them and don't really belong in the group. Talking in public is genuinely horrible, especially if it's for a speech or some shit, but I've gotten so bad now that I even feel awkward just answering a question in class sometimes, which used to be fine. And eye contact is near impossible.

    Granted, though, I do sometimes have better days where I'm willing to try and actually engage in the conversation and be somewhat sociable. In general, I'm probably better talking to people I don't know recently, as I'm less worried about whether they like me or not, and can have a decent chat from time to time. It's just that most of the time, it tends to be one of my more poorer days.

  • Leg days are also a nice meme to look at from time to time.

  • I'm horribly socially awkward :( like it's actually terrible.

  • I've noticed a lot of guys at the gym look like ice cream cones.

  • May sound odd but look at the entire picture. There is NOBODY better than you. No one that deserves more respect or consideration than you. So when you feel awkward because of an interaction with someone, truly believe the pleasure was all theirs. Maybe next time they will have the pleasure interacting with you again. Anxiety is in the mind, sometimes you just have to say, "fu@k you anxiety."

  • That is exactly it. Sometimes I look at guys and wonder how their legs can even carry their huge torso and arms without breaking. That's why I work on my legs twice a week boi, better safe than sorry. :D

  • Had it ever since I was little. My anxiety was so extreme back then that I would ask my preschool teachers, and I quote, "I don't have to eat or play, do I?" I still have no idea why that bothered me lol.

    I don't think I have social anxiety but I do get shy around people I don't know. I tend to make friends rather quickly because I do like to joke around and have engaging conversations.

  • My mom is shy though

  • I'm usually pretty shy around people I don't know. But once I get to know them, I can be quite outgoing around them.

    But I think I'm worst around... Uhh... Women my age. Like, seriously. I'm shit scared of them. I don't know if that's being sexist or something. It's not that I don't want to be around them, I just find it harder to act 'normal' around them. Funny thing is, though, I get along better with women than men. I have thought about it a bit and I think I can trace it back to something that happened earlier in my life, but I guess it's just something I'm gonna have to work on.

  • No, that's not being sexist. Some people just have trouble talking or being around the opposite gender. It's nothing you should be ashamed of, it's just something you need to work on.

    H-Heyo! Das me! ... ... ... ... ... ... [immediately regrets decision to speak]

    Yeah, I've got that good ol' Social Anxiety.
    Hard to speak up, initiate, or provide interesting discussion.
    I've got a small group of friends -- even smaller now that I've moved on to post-secondary ed., and it sucks that while I enjoy the company of others, I'm terribly introverted so I like to be alone and end up not meeting up with many people very often.
    This, coupled with the fact that the common interests with most people close to me is pretty thin, and my real interest in tech, video games, and niche online entertainment makes me feel pretty alienated in each of my groups (including my familial environment).
    In public, I'm usually the listener of the conversation, usually moving it along with signs of acknowledgements like "Uh huh." "OK." "Yeah?"... I'll only interject if it's something I can relate to, or maybe takeover if there's a subject of mutual interest on my mind. Otherwise, if there's a lull, an awkward pause or forced repitition because I try to talk about something the other party doesn't understand/didn't hear me clearly enough, it's awkward trauma.
    (Edit: This is all probably not as bad as I make it seem. I usually don't give myself enough credit for being extroverted every once in a while, and tend to beat myself up too much over simple mistakes.)

    I am seeing someone for help with this, just to push me to out of my comfort zone every now and then (because I am able at being a normal human), but sometimes it still feels awful and it makes me want to take it off my chest like I'm doing now.

    I relate to some of this.

    Yup, same for me as well. I'm not "scared" of females like you, but I find it easier and more relaxing to be in social situations with the opposite gender. Might be because a lot of the guys in my elementary/secondary school were just plain dumb. They were cool, nice guys, but sometimes I just want to pretend I don't know them.
    I've never been the "immature" type.

  • Me, because I'm homeschooled (according to general society).

  • I don't understand why people in today's society find it unusual and awkward to be friends with someone of the opposite gender. I have a ton of friends who are boys (mostly because I'm really into things most girls aren't, like NFL Football and video games) and they're always nice to me. I even get along with some guys better than girls my age.

  • I know what you mean. I used to be really shy when I was little, and some people always said it was because I'm hameschooled. But I have a cousin that goes to public school and he's way more shy then I ever was.( In other words, I'm saying that's not the reason for me being shy). Some people just always try to find something bad to say about homeschooling.

  • I got molested when I was 18 so it's hard to build trust with people
