@fabfouremily I'm kind of like that too. But I can be really shy too sometimes. I am the same when it comes to stuff with big crowds, I also need to be alone for a little while afterwards and sometimes activities with big crowds are very tiring for me, because I'm not a spontaneous and very talkative person, only when I'm alone with family or close friends, or if I'm in some interesting discussion. That's why I hate throwing parties myself too, because it's so tiring and also, and I know I shouldn't do this but I can't help it, I'm always worried people aren't enjoying themselves. Which makes the whole thing even more tiring. Gawd I sound like an old lady. I do enjoy going to parties or to a pub or club myself though, but I do have to know someone there, otherwise I'm not going. Luckily people often invite me, and I'm really trying to get out of my shell. I think I've grown a lot on that point though. 

I sometimes worry that I'm too ''old'' for my own good so I do occasionaly force myself to go out, even if I know there will be lot's of people or it's not really my thing. I just make myself because I don't want to be quite like I am. We two sound very alike now you mention you're the same, I thought I'd never ''meet'' anyone similar to me!

 

Im the same however ive stopped forcing myself to go out as its just a nightmare for me and I think for them and why go thru all that?

I do it because otherwise I might not see my friends for what feels like ages. When I'm at school it's okay 'cause I see the ones that go with me there but in the holidays, I don't. Like yesterday, I went out with my two closest friends to a small bar near where I live (which I actually really like as it's partly outside and very green, and has a nice vibe). I might not see them again for some time now because they're off to parties (which I haven't been invited to) and concerts (''artists'' I don't like) for the next few weeks.

Sometimes I'm glad I told myself to get out and socialize (''you're not retired yet, you know, Emily''; is what I'm told) but if I really don't want to and I know I'm not in the mood, then I don't.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

Haha, yes! I think there are a lot of people like us though, but some won't admit it. 

About what you said..Sometimes I do force myself to go out, because otherwise I'm afraid I'll drift away from my friends because they are experiencing things I don't. I always feel a bit excluded when people are talking about an event I wasn't at and they share their memories and laugh about things I can't laugh about because I wasn't there.

Other times I just stay at home, because like MMM says, what's the point if you're not enjoying yourself and you only annoy other people because you're not enjoying yourself.

A recent pet peeve (or one I only recently noticed I have):  When I dial up a YouTube song video that says it has the lyrics, I noticed that with each line of lyrics they display on the screen, they wait like a second after the singers sing the line before they show the lyrics.  If you don't know the lyrics and you're trying to learn them, or sing along, you want the lyrics to appear a second before, to give you time to anticipate and go along with the flow of the song -- not after!!!

Every damn YouTube does this!!!

1. I don't like walking in front of people, or entering a room/building through a door in front of people.

2. When people pronounce a word wrong and I correct them, but they never remember. (MOM!)

3. When "musicians" from other genres (i.e. hip-hop) say "I'm gonna rock you" or something when they're not even a rock artist/band.

4. When people always confuse the two terms "Rock" and "Rock and Roll". There's a Difference!

5. When people say they don't like The Beatles with no reason given.

6. When people call USB drives "Memory sticks" It's Not Memory! It's storage!

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

1. For me, the worst thing is having to stand in a line with most of the line behind me.  At least when you're walking it'll be over in a few seconds or a minute at most for the most part.

2. If I had a nickel (or "tuppence" as the Brits say ) for every time my friend still pronounces it "NOO-cue-ler" instead of "NOO-klee-er" after I've corrected him countless times, I'd be rich)

3 and 4. Interesting -- I've never heard any musician or band described as just a "Roll" band (for example, there is the genre "Country and Western" and there are "Country" songs and there are "Western" songs too).

5. Even when they give a reason, it's not good enough.

6.  Isn't human memory storage?

Rock and Roll came before Rock music, it's different, but related styles of music. And yes, human memory is storage, but computer memory is what runs the computer (i.e. My laptop has 159 GB of storage and 8 GB of memory)

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I'm 5'1'' small too, and I know exactly how you feel. What makes it even worse is that almost everyone else in my family is at least average size, but most you could call tall. My dad is way over 6 feet all.

 

Being 6'5", every girl I dated (including my wife) was no taller than 5'3", and my first-ever g.f. was 4'10". This has made for some strange glances from people, a few smart-ass comments from braver idiots, and one near-arrest as well. So while being short isn't the greatest, being really tall is not fun a lot of times as well.

Same here. And I love it when people say to me "You need to be on Facebook." No, I don't. Water, oxygen, food, Beatles... those are necessities in life.  Facebook is not a necessity in life, and I don't think I'm missing anything by refusing to be on it.

People thinking you're weird because you don't like to get drunk. I can have fun not getting drunk. Getting drunk is not the key in life to have fun. 

I was actually having a discussion with my mom about this. She told me about how she used to go to this club when she was my age and she was all ''Oh and Pete used to stand in the doorway with a plate with shots and we'd all be drunk in no time and it was so much fun blablabla'' and I was like ''Oh yay, such fun, I bet.'' And she just said something like ''Yeah oh I forgot you don't know what fun is. You never party like that'' I find that such bullshit. I don't know what fun is because I don't get drunk every week? Because it's so much fun to get drunk and have no control about your body and not to be able to remember anything that happened? I just like to be in control of my body. I've been completely wasted only twice and I HATED it. One of those times I spent all night being miserable and vomitting. Can't see the fun in that.

I used to be the designated driver for our broadcasting group in college (people in the broadcasting industry like to party, I guess), and often times they would act "sorry" for me because I didn't drink or "have fun." I had my fun a-hard-days-night-george-10, I just didn't have to suffer from the hangovers. brian-epstein

Yeah, I think I'd rather be on the short side than on the tall side. At least you're a guy though, most boys/men I know only want to be taller than they are already. I think it's hard to be tall when you're a woman, harder than it is to be short, I guess.

I'm nearly 5' 10" and I like being tall NOW.  When I was a 12 year old girl and was 5' 7" & stuck out like a sore thumb at school - being tall was definitely a pet peeve of mine.  You get all the obvious/dumb/unintelligent comments that shorter people do...just reversed, I guess! a-hard-days-night-george-10

After just being on a long road trip, I have to say that one of my pet peeves is people who drive BELOW the speed limit.  Damn, it's annoying!  And I believe, probably causes as many, if not more accidents than people driving over the speed limit!

using the internet on an iPod or phone. Screen too small soon you press the wrong thing all the time, a pain in the neck to navigate on, and predictive text refuses to acknowledge words like on and murder (what on earth is 'muderder' and when would you ever use it in a sentence?).

I HATE that too. It's mostly elderly people who do that though. I always think ''If you're afraid to drive at the right speed or aren't capable of driving well anymore for any reason, then don't do it at all.''

I used to have a best friend who was nearly 2 heads taller than me. It looked really stupid. She never felt comfortable either.

I hate having teachers that don't know what they're doing. In history this year, I have a teacher, but he has some lady who is going to help teach my class. I honestly don't know what she is but she's definitely not a teacher.

I kind of feel bad about it because she just seems so happy to be there, but she really annoys me. Like, she always has this dumb smile on her face, and when she tries explaining something or teaching us something she just sounds really dumb. She doesn't know what she's doing. Just because you enjoy history doesn't mean you can be a history teacher.

^ Is she a teaching assistant? They're not meant to teach you per se, just help you to understand things and make sure the class is all in order.

She is a teaching assistant. I think she's usually just a study hall teacher, though, or one of those people who stand in the hallways during passing period to tell you to put your id on.

As a former teaching assistant... yeah, you nailed it. I knew one who got the job because she slept with the professor. (And I found out later she wasn't the first.) Important point: NEVER correct the professor you work under. I made that mistake once and got chewed out and cursed out in front of the class.
