An Insight into my Almost Social Life

Have you ever been in a room all alone and thought about how nobody can see you? How there’s seven billion people on this planet and not one of them is looking at or acknowledging you? I think about that all the time, but I don’t think anyone else does. It’s quite a weird thought though…

I went out today. I went ice skating. After we put on our boots I got angry because our locker wouldn’t lock. It’s a locker, a locker. It was made solely to lock things inside of it to keep them safe, and it didn’t lock. I was less than impressed. But, then a man who worked there gave us locker #69 to use instead, which cheered me up immensely.

Skating was pretty damn fun I have to say. We saw some people from school that I don’t dislike but barely know and we talked to them a bit and I tried my best not to be rude or awkward. I didn’t do too badly. The girl I was with, Katherine fell over about ten times and after laughing I helped her up. I only fell over once, but when I did I made sure I dragged Katherine down with me. We both laughed a lot while we sat on the floor and allowed our bums to become ice cubes.

So, I was feeling pretty good, the day was going well. That was until two people I didn’t know came over to me and told me their friend wanted my number. That threw me. I’m socially awkward; I don’t like strangers or being asked for my number. They were both taller than me, and that made me feel small. I nearly fell over when they came over to me because I couldn’t stop, and that made me feel kind of stupid. I told them he wasn’t having my number and kept saying “Erm, I don’t know, no” when they tried to persuade me.

I didn’t mention why I said no, but it was because firstly it was probably a joke. People make jokes like that, and they always do it to the people who won’t know how to react, like me for example. It was also because I thought the boy who was speaking to me much more attractive than the friend who supposedly wanted my number. Basically, I said no and I don’t regret it because the situation would have been way worse if I’d said anything different.

I also went to the library on my own and got the second ‘Internal Devices’ book, Clockwork Prince. Internal Devices is a prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. It’s all by Cassandra Clare.

It’s Friday night, but you can probably tell that I’m not going anywhere. I have four friends for Christ’s sake; I don’t go out on Friday nights. Ha! I’m writing this and then reading my book. Why I’m writing this I don’t know. Before I wrote this, I was writing something about my lack of friends, but I deleted it because I sounded shallow. So, I wrote about my day because it was quite exciting by my standards.

I won’t be surprised or offended if you find this boring,

Vicky
