Writer's Block: Divided Self

Do you behave differently online than you do in real life?
Somewhat. I usually feel uncomfortable around people. I don't communicate with communities of people online. I do with one in real life only because a friend was able to talk me into going and continuing. But as far as differences, in recent years I've begun to occasionally stutter when talking around a few or more people.

I suppose this is a difficult question for me to answer because I don't know how people see me. Some say I'm shy. Some say I'm really outgoing. Maybe I'm outgoing despite my shyness? I think the difference between me online and in person is that I'm far more reserved around people. I usually do my best to wear a blank face or a smile. The blank face is sometimes a genuine expression. Though I'm often read as being sad & worried. Sometimes crazy and disturbed too.

Oh! You people are goooooood! Though I'm not crazy. I feel like life is constantly trying to drive me there. I'm just warped in expected ways I suppose, if you get to know what has been and is going on. But I don't want to make excuses either. I've got to overcome my difficulties. It can be done. I want it to be done. I want to be done with it completely.

I am doing research for my university thesis, thanks for your great points, now I am acting on a sudden impulse.
