1. I’m a goody two shoes
Some people think that being quiet equates for being a really nice and obedient daughter or a person. That’s what people always think of me when they first meet me. I mean, I am nice but sometimes I’m also stubborn and wouldn’t listen to my parents for instance. We get in arguments sometimes and misunderstandings just like other parent-child relationship does. I guess we just have different views on things and I needed to prove my point.
People are right about me being not a party girl though. I don’t really have any vices. I drink but not to the point of being really drunk (but sometimes I wonder how it feels and I wanna experience it lol) and I don’t smoke or do drugs. I go on a night out but only with my cousins and friends which happens like, thrice a year. I’m not saying people who does these things aren’t a good person. I’m just saying people’s assumption of me not doing those things are true.
2. I don’t talk
Yeah, right. I don’t talk. I don’t talk at all. I hate talking so much that I would just stare at you blankly when you ask me something or talk to you in sign language. Ugh sometimes I think I want to do just that to tell people that I don’t care if they see me that way. I hate it when they make fun of me being silent. I’m quiet at first cuz it takes quite some time for me to be comfortable talking to someone especially to a group of new people but it doesn’t mean that I don’t talk. It’s weird how I can be comfortable talking to just one person even if I just met them but uncomfortable in groups where sometimes I feel out of place. I hate small talks but I will talk to you all day long about certain topics and have a really good conversation. Just refrain from noticing me being quiet, telling everyone that I don’t talk, cuz it makes me more conscious and will even be more quiet. Just give me some time.
I hate living in a world where introversion is seen as a weakness. I don’t have to be loud and outspoken to be successful.

3. I’m boring
When they don’t know that I can be silly, funny, outgoing, a little annoying and crazy. Maybe they think that about me cuz I have a serious face or what they call a resting bitch face. That’s why I try to smile more to avoid that impression of me. I just tend to not open up that easily but when I do, then you might probably change your mind about me being boring.
4. I’m sosyal
I don’t even know where they got this from. Maybe they assume that cuz of my parents’ job that they think we’re so rich, or for the way that I sometimes do things in a lady like manner or I’m mahinhin. People think I don’t do household chores, or doesn’t know how to wash my own clothes but I do. They think that I don’t eat simple Filipino food but they don’t know it’s one of my faves, for instance: dried fish and bagoong. And I like to eat with my hands.
We also used to live in a bamboo and nipa hut, so it’s not like I’m fed with a silver spoon on my plate. I have lived in the country side also. I can survive anywhere and I actually enjoy the simplest things of life.
