I rarely talk about abortion and abortion. I don't mind talking about Miley Cyrus but it shocks people when I say that she is doing the exact same thing every other female in the music business is doing. People just want to be sensationalized and want drama. To me, Miley is just like Rihanna, Ke$ha, and other sexualities female musicians (if you can call them that). Politics are a tricky subject. I am wary of debating with people on topics like abortion, politics, and gay marriage because I don't agree with most people and I don't want to talk to people who don't know what they're talking about. I am not really informed on ObamaCare so I try and stay away from that and other people have no idea what they're talking about either. I would rather talk about conspiracy theories and I purposefully say things that shock people. I either keep my conversations boringly simple or completely out there and crazy. The weather is good small talk.
I think I get the energy from genuinely liking to talk to people. At the same time, I am quite content with just observing people and listening to other people's conversations and chiming in when something interesting is being discussed.
Thanks for liking my icon!
Just talk to people about the things that interest you and make small talk interesting or at least bearable. And YES, keep it "random". I think that is one of the reasons that people seem to enjoy conversing with me.
