Some of us are quite shy, and get pink cheeks at the slightest thing. However, this means that we may miss out on a lot of fun. Think again. Try something new. As long as you don't scare the straights, you should be okay.
I've always liked comics, right from an early age. Captioned images is the adult equivalent. I find that creating these captions on images I find interesting, helps me relax. Yes, it's escapism. It seems that only a lucky few live the fantasy. I think we all want to escape to a better place, and we all have our ways of getting there.
