I’ve been accused of being moody more than a few times in my life, mostly because I keep to myself and don’t have the personality of a social butterfly, like my sister does. I’m not comfortable making small talk with strangers, and if I’m walking down the street and someone waves or honks or says something to me, it takes a lot to respond, not because I’m rude and standoffish, but because my natural inclination is to just say nothing. People that know me know that around people I’m comfortable with, I’m lively and excitable and fun, but it takes time for me to be comfortable around you. My sister has been with her boyfriend for 6 ½ years now, and it took me almost 2 years to be okay enough around him to talk to him without tripping over my words. I’ve worked hard to change that, and I think I’m better now in general than I was a few years ago.
Now, because the first thing that popped into my head upon seeing the prompt today wasn’t what I typed above, but rather this, enjoy your musical interlude.
