my friend is babysitting my hamster

You see all these posts on Tumblr celebrating introvertism like it is some kind of a good thing. EG you’re a good listener, good thinker etc and that these are all great traits to have. But I so badly wish I was an extrovert. OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHH dear GOD. I’m only marginally extroverted when I’m with people I know, and then other times I am the shyest person ever. I struggle to say hello to strangers when I’m on my own or not doing a job or not comfortable in myself or my surroundings. A housemate thought I was odd (mentally challenged) because of how quiet I was on my first day of uni (embarrassing). First day of work at the healthcare centre I hardly talked to anyone (awful).
Life would be so much more easier for me if I could be charming and talkative and more comfortable in new situations.
