Weird things that you're self conscious about?
I always sit in really weird positions in class, with my feet under/behind me on the chair, or curled up in a ball between the chair and the desk. I always wonder what people think. It's just how I'm comfortable
you know I sit in odd and weird positions too
I often sit on my hands.
I think we all have good days and bad days, when we think we look good and days when we want to hide.
Sarah D, I am so the same way! No one has ever said anything to me about though, except one time I had my legs stretched over my desk table in a sort of awkward position. And my teacher asked me if I was doing it for attention.. I had to explain to him that my feet were falling asleep from sitting on top of them
I agree. I think its funny how we have these insecurities that no one else really even notices or agrees with :p
@Sarah D: I think I must agree, there's not that much I feel self-conscious about (lol, with bright red dreads I've arguably voluntarily given up the right to walk down the street unmolested anyway...), but I'm rather bendy and tend to sit in some very curious shapes.
A hairy viking-like friend pointed it out when we were out at the Student union: 'You dress like a perfect Victorian lady, but my God, you sit so we can all practically see what you had for dinner!'
I just remembered something else. The way my voice sounds when it gets recorded. It always sounds really nasally. But I really like the sound of my voice, just not when it gets recorded.
@ Claire A. I can't believe here is another person on earth with same issue like mine! I mean, I'm really obsessed with my nose and its' crookedness, the bone sticks on the side, glasses make it worse, my sight is really bad, but i refuse to wear glasses because of my nose. I don't even let people take pictures of me from certain angles! But now, I look at your picture and I don't see the crookedness! You're so pretty! And your hair! You've got nothing to worry about! Lucky you!
I'm self conscious about my feet size. They are a size 8 women, but I feel like they are huge. I'm also self conscious about my height. I'm only five foot seven, but I feel like I'm taller than 6 feet, and I don't wear high shoes.
Pikapal, I feel the same way about my feet. I have the same size and I think sometimes they seem big. It doesn't really bother me though because my mom and one of my sisters are both a size 11.
I'm not really THAT self-consious about anything physical except for the hair on my stomach. In the summer it lightens up and is much less noticeable but I don't like letting anyone see it in the winter, even my best friend.
That aside, I'm REALLY self-consious about my intelligence. I hang out with the smarter group of people in my school (We pretty much have all AP classes.) The ONLY class that I don't have that the rest of my friends do is Analysis. This class is a year ahead of our grade, like ADVANCED advanced math. I'm in normal advanced math and they make fun of me sometimes. Most of the time they're not trying to hurt me, but it still does. My boyfriend and best friend stick up for me most of the time, but it doesn't matter. I'm upset that they think less of me only because I'm not in ONE class. GRRR! Getting angry right now!!
@ Zombie D: Haha! thanks! there's a reason that picture is my picture though, it's the only decent one i actually like of me! Trust me if you saw my nose you'd see what i mean! Luckily i don't need glasses, otherwise i'd refuse to wear them like you!
It's weird what we think are bad things other people don't notice...
@ Veronies: I sound like a man on recording. Which means I sound like that to everyone else all the time. :/
