    It's called having no social life, studying linguistics three hours every other night and using Duolingo, Memrise and different books to study them.

    For example, I'm currently learning:
    Swedish
    Turkish
    Irish Gaelic
    Esperanto
    Arabic
    Polish
    Czech
    German
    French
    Swahili
    Korean

    It's just something that seems to work for me. No one else can get their head round it to be quite honest.

    I don't in my opinion just really interested in the African culture. It's random things like listening to rap, dancing hip-hop, going to African parties/weddings, dating black guys, having many black friends.. Sometimes I wonder where I was from in my previous life

    Why are you so quiet? Why don't you talk more? BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO TALK YOU!!
    Why are you so shy? :mad: I don't know?!?!
    This pisses me off so much when somebody asks me this question. Some people think that I have some kind of mental disorder and I need to be cured!! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME YOU IDIOT!! Some people just don't understand the difference of being shy, and being an introvert. (I am an introvert )

    No you didn't know what it was because if you did you'd know why I used it...? It means, I see. Who goes "what do you mean? " to "I see."

    "Which school do you go to?" (I'm home schooled)
    This answer is always followed by a tediously long explanation of just what it's like to be home schooled (which, ok, is not common, but still...), peppered with loads of qs from the other person etc., and then when they run out of qs, they just stand awkwardly around, because they've decided that I'm different to them, therefore we can't have a normal conversation. Really sucks...
    Maybe the second most annoying q is (after they've found out I'm in Yr 10), "So, you must be doing GCSEs, right?" followed by "Which ones?" I sometimes wonder whether these questions are just to see if my parents have been doing a decent job, which really gets at me :/ I mean, given that my mum got 6As at A-level (in the days when there weren't A*s), what do they expect?

    You do, around here. People can be illiterate so you have to condescend to spell it out for them.
