Okay! Good to know, lol :)...
On my path to my, well, "enlightenment" I guess, I thought I let go of many of my insecurities.
Subsequently I realized something is VERY wrong. I have a terrible habit of acting dumb. Sometimes on PerC, sometimes in real life around my peers. I sometimes put on a whole fake show of being dumb-ish and naive. I'll use smaller words instead of big ones I am capable of using, purposely act like I don't get certain concepts, and more irritating things. This bugs me because not only do I like to NOT think of myself as "dumb" per se (because I am FAR from it), I don't like being TREATED as such either.
Can you help me? (I know that's ironic because if I think I'm smart with more potential and I just asked YOU a question about answering MY question so that means I would be dumber than I just acted by asking you this)
^Or at least that's how I think....
Just throw in an aura of mystery. End all of your statements with intensely narrowed eyes and a question like, "...or IS it?" or, "...or AM I?" or, "...or SHOULD we?" Keep'em all off balance and guessing. Remember, aura of mystery! (Hee-hee!)
