first of all, decide exactly what you want to change
I want to be less bland and have a more exciting life with deep and enduring friendships. I feel like I live the life of an overprotected 12-year-old. It's partly my fault for being so reclusive and giving into social failures in the past, but I want to reverse that now.
I want to be more charismatic, know all the right moves socially. I'm horrible at nonverbal cues, so I'm pretty awkward. I wish I could get rid of my anxiety. I want to be fashionable and appealing without looking like an airhead and above all be fun.
I want to learn how to drive. Get a job. Party on weekends. Live life and get out of this limited bubble. I have a feeling that 2009 is going to be an life altering year, something amazing will happen, I can feel it.
I never expected to have a featured thread. Thank you!
