Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

I’m so bad at making new friends
like I always come off as too friendly, it’s weird, and creepy. But I like it I think it’s more sincere, but then it doesn’t work with everyone so you shouldn’t do that BUT I’M AN IDIOT AND I believe that if someone judges based on that then we don’t need to be friends in the first place.

I do this too but in a different way, I try to accept whatever the person is like and sometimes people take it as though I’m bored or uninterested and is there really any fool-proof way to make new friends and have them like you ad not judge you?

You know, one plus about wearing hijab, is it forces you to take a meh outfit up a notch to very lovely. You gotta figure out how to layer and put things together so it’s hijabi-friendly. But even before I started wearing hijab, I dressed a bit more conservatively and I’d still have to figure out the same things with layering and what not. So, it was always fun, like an outfit puzzle. Of course there are/were days where I wish/wished I could throw on a tank top and some shorts, but I just have to remember why I chose to do this in the first place. 🙏 Basically, hijab isn’t easy. It’s not supposed to be, but it makes me stronger and empowers me. And when I’m having good outfit days, that always helps me not feel so bad about good hair days :)
