Rant Time!!I'm going to rant about something that's been on my mind for awhile now. I'm nearly done with high school, so I've been reflecting back on my life, from childhood through my senior year now.

When I was just a wee lad, I was a very quiet and calm person. I wouldn't speak unless spoken to, and I would never dare talk to anyone I wasn't friends with. I was a super introvert. My older brother was always the extrovert; very outgoing and very hyper as a kid (at least as it seemed to me, he might say something different). As I got older, right around the end of middle school, two things happened to me: I started using the internet frequently and also started coming out of my shell. Over the course of my high school career, I started to become more extroverted and outgoing, to the point now where I will strike a conversation with someone I don't know. I'm sure most people go through this, I doubt I'm the only one.

The part that gets me though, is that I still seem to suffer from a horrible internet introversion, which I think has only gotten worse over time. One of the first online PC games I got was Left 4 Dead 2. I loved that game and I would play with any random people the game stuck me with. Now, I won't play unless I'm playing with friends. It took me until last summer just to get a Facebook, and even though I now have one, I rarely post a thing, or comment, or even 'like' anything. I frequent the interwebs everyday, but I have been a lurker for just about everything. I started trying to become involved with the community here in hopes that I can fix this "Internet Introversion" complex I am having. It just baffles me that I can be outgoing in real life, but in a place where I can have anonymity, I don't want to do anything for fear of any consequences that might come with commenting on a reddit thread with 1000 comments already. I'd say its because I've had bad experiences before with trolls or assholes, but if that's the case, how come I am only becoming more extroverted in real life? I have definitely had bad experiences with people in real life. I don't have any answer to this, there might not be. I don't even expect someone to read this, this is just me ranting and getting this off my chest. Perhaps in writing this I will figure it out. But this is the end of the rant so I doubt it.

*END RANT* You read all that? Good for you, go get yourself a cookie. Grab me one too while you're at it. Took me about a half hour to word this, I deserve a little reward...
