This Might Be a Breakthrough... Or Not

I'm incredibly shy around people I'm not close to. That's... I've said that probably more times than anyone actually cares to hear. XD But today, I did something I never do.

I tried to sort-of exchange pleasantries of my own free will.

Not much, mind you, but a tiny bit. I was leaving my math class (the one I really, really like, despite hating math), and my professor was, like, putting away stuff and all that since class was over.

I was one of the last people leaving the room, and decided to actually say something. I only said "have a nice day!" but it's really funny, since my professor looked and sounded kind of surprised that I said anything at all. He just seemed kind of taken aback that I opened my mouth for anything other than role-call, LOL.

It was... difficult. But I suppose I know that I am capable of doing it.

Granted, I wouldn't have done that with my other teachers, probably. My math professor is awesome. But still... I'm kind of proud of myself, if that makes sense. ^^;

Yes, something that minor is a big deal to me, in real life, anyway. XD I'm a chatterbox at home and here, LOL.

    As long as it makes you feel proud of yourself. ^^

    But still, nice job. :)

    [s]You've given me some hope. XD[/s]

    Seriously, I'm pretty much the exact same way in school. I just never say [i]anything[/i] during class unless prompted, and even then... :lol: Anyway, though, I definitely understand what you mean by feeling proud of yourself. ^^ Good job. :D

    [s]/would too quiet for the teacher to even hear if she tried x3;[/s]

    This most definitely a break-through.

    I tend to greet others and ask how they are, but other then that, we are the same when it comes to being social in real life. Good job, FinalArcadia. :D

    it's all thanks to being shipped with me xD

    Yeah, I can see where you're coming from since I was like you. Around 4 years ago, I barely talked in classes unless I was prompted to. My teachers were total strangers in my eyes despite being pretty cool themselves. They would talk about something that happened in their lives sometimes and my classmates would follow and keep talking with them themselves. I used to be annoyed by it since I considered it to be nothing more than a distraction, but then, once I started to sort of have a relationship with the teachers I liked, my grades started rising and I'd get a good report card sometimes :3. Learning subjects I didn't like before started to be very likeable for me when the right teacher came. For example, I detested History. Yet, I got the most awesome and fun teacher ever that would joke with the class a lot. She made History tolerable and fun to learn in class. She was still harsh sometimes, but remained cool and fun.

    Telling my teachers to have a nice day/weekend/night really made me feel happy sometimes. It's a tough job for them. The History teacher I mentioned came from Gozo, and so has to wake up really early and go on a boat to come to Malta! She told us that she wakes up 4:30am to catch the Gozo Channel to come to Malta, then drive to our school every Monday till Friday.

    FinalArcadia, you may not know this, but a single "good day"/compliment to a teacher could make them extremely happy. I hope that you continue breaking your shell by speaking more in class.

    mmm... I'm a chatter mouth when I want to... but I'm usually very quiet. But I'd say that is a good step to getting to be more sociable with other people. In my last school I started being more nice and polite to... basically everyone. Results may vary, but personally, I felt much more confortable in my school, and my teachers were very nice too.

    And I agree with Human avobe. A single compliment can brighten up someone's day. It's a really good thing to do.
