When you are out and about, talk to strangers.

For most of my adult life I kept to myself an my friends, i was afraid to go places alone or start conversations with people around me. Only in the past few years have I figured out that most people are looking for an excuse to talk to new people, and if you provide that excuse you will hear a lot of interesting stories. For some people this might sound obvious, but for people who are naturally introverted like myself this is a lesson that needs to be learned.

Go out and talk to new people, you will meet new friends, hear some wild stories, and be a better person for all of it.

Even being fairly extroverted, as well as a military child who moves around alot, it still takes some sheer will power to be able to introduce myself to others...

Well, I'm pretty good at getting other people's attention, so that helps whenever I try talking to someone. Can't wait to escape from school into the real world. :P
Have no regrets.
