A Socially Anxious Adventure

I don't want to talk to you. I'm scared of you. Please, leave me alone.

A log of diary entries of someone who's socially anxious.

Meet the author, who is to be called Nicki, as she tells you of her life!

//based on a true story


1. Cinco de Mayo

So, I decided to call this entry cinco de mayo because today's the 5th of May and yeah. I don't celebrate the 5th of May.

So, I failed epically at my speech. Stuttering like something bad is going to happen if I were to say something wrong, like if I said tree instead of three that I would fail with a big fat F in life because I should know the difference between tree and three by now.

Thank you so much, social anxiety! You make my life.... But I'm stopping there. I'm not risking the influence on these young minds to my senseless cursings. No, I'm better than that. If I were to curse in this, I wouldn't have made it for everyone.

Each entry will have a short story time at the end, just to highlight a certain part of the day.


I walked slowly, looking down at the ground to avoid the gaze of passersby. I didn't want to think about being surrounded by people. I just wanted to get to point A to point B.

"Would you like some candy?" I hear as I walk by, looking up to see a girl about my age holding a blue bucket of mixed candies.

Because I don't want to appear rude, I very quietly responded, "sure."

I walked up and with no time wasted, grab a piece of candy and went about my day.

"Good luck on finals!" She said to me as I was walking away.

Like candies help me with finals, but what is she to do? I am reminded daily, multiple times a day, that finals are next week.

I brush it aside to worry about it later. I just want to get through my classes, having only gotten 3 hours of sleep and having caught a cold. I just want to lie down and sleep.

Perhaps tomorrow will be a better day.
