Secret #19

Engagement makes me not have time to do anything. Especially post on my blog.

On that note, our engagement pictures are online. Take a look. Our photographer is fantastic.

I have this problem...I don't like talking to strangers (stranger danger, anyone?).

Example: whenever I get a phone call from a number I don't know, I don't answer it. I just don't like talking to strangers.

Another example: when I am at home (which is rare), there's really only one person who visits me (I'll give you 3 guesses who, and the first 2 don't count). So, if I'm the only one home and someone comes to the door, I never answer it. My bedroom window looks out over the front door, so I usually just peek out that to see if I know who it is (which is hard to decipher, since I can usually only see the top of their head or their elbows and the backs of their legs). I hardly ever do, so I just ignore it, telling myself that if anyone asks, I was in the shower or my music was up loud. I just don't like talking to strangers.

Maybe this has happened because I'm sick of people coming to my door or calling me, wanting me to buy a newspaper subscription or a $50 bottle of cleaner or a starving student card that I absolutely do not need or want. Maybe strangers should go door to door wanting to tell you that you look nice that day, or wanting to give you money. Then I'd be much more willing to answer the door. Until that day, however...I'll remain alone in my dark room, creeping out the window at the top of people's heads.
