I’m an introvert. I know, everybody says that. And every time I read it, I roll my eyes. “You’re not really introverted, you with the public speaking, the podcasting, the 30 tweets per day. I’m introverted. I got scared to say yes in the school register and have deleted more tweets than I’ve posted purely out of shyness.” […]
