NOTE: I'm almost positive that a blog like this has been done before, so if I stole your idea, I'm sincerely sorry. This blog was made purely out of genuine curiousity rather than original creativity, which is my usual goal.

Sorry, I'm taking psychology this semester, so please bear with me.
So, are you the type of person that shies away or opens up on the internet? My response may very well shock and surprise you:
In real life, I'm probably the most socially awkward person you're ever going to meet. When I am in a group of people that I am unfamiliar with, I tend to shy away from the crowd and keep to myself. It is only when I have truly gotten to know the people that I start to open up and let my true colors show. However, I am (slowly) improving on my people skills.
When I'm on here, it's a different story; I think my personality here is almost a polar opposite. I often scare myself with how social and confident I've become. I never realized that a website could bring that character out of me. The truth is, deep, deep down, I've always been friendly, outgoing and even sassy--with a little eccentricity mixed in.
So, now you may be wondering why I'm not like this in real life. Well, I tend to get easily annoyed with people when they're right in front of me, yet at the same time, I long for companionship and the company of others, so the wiki gives me the happy medium of being by myself and being with others, if that makes any sense. Also, I guess since I can't see the rest of you and you can't see me, it gets rid of my fear of judgement. This gives me the freedom to be myself and be more comfortable with you and who I am. And apparently, you guys seem to really like me for who I am, which is why I keep coming back. You guys give me the attention that I never seem to get elsewhere, and you guys really give me self-confidence. :D
Is this unhealthy? Perhaps. My parents certainly seem to agree. However, it has opened my eyes to the type of person I can be. I'm still getting over the irony of how "popular" I am here, as opposed to school.
Okay, blah, blah, blah; ENOUGH about me! How does your online personality compare to that in real life? I'm sure most of you are just as awesome in real life, as you are here. ;D
