In secondary school, I was awkward, usually shy (with some bursts of craziness) and quite disciplined.
In undergrad, as I moved up the years, I became slightly more relaxed, still stayed somewhat introverted but I would open up more to people (probably because I met more similar people).
Now, in grad school, I am more disciplined (started and finished some assignments way before the deadline - this has, so far, been completely unheard of for me. Then again there's the for-how-long-will-this-last question..) and have spoken to at least one new person every day. I also stay more focused in class.
I don't talk in class. Well, except the cute girl that sit next to me and she is gone now. Long gone.
You chased her out, didn't you...
I'm different in school, I'm very quiet, and in my own little world, in fact, I"m like that everywhere that does not require a good amount of socializing.
However, when I do get an opportunity to talk, I'm very commanding with my tone(since I'm serious), hence the domineering description people have given me in school.
I've had students come up to me and ask me why I don't socialize more often, why I don't talk, etc etc. *flicks anti-social halo*
With my friends/best friends I'm a completely different person, even my tone changes
Sure, in both high-school and college, I'm cold, serious, creepily quiet, and aloof, except around friends. I actually got phone calls home, asking if I was okay, because it was December and I hadn't said a word in class except when directly called on that year.
