July 4, 2012

It has come to my attention that a couple of things happen pretty quickly when I am embarrassed or unwanted attention is on me.

1) My cheeks turn instantly red and I’m burning up so much that it feels as though I’m tanning on a beach.

2) My face starts to twitch. I’m not joking – my whole face starts to twitch! Concurrently, I always seem to be smiling. Smiling at what, I don’t know. But I always seem to be smiling. Actually, it’s bigger than “smiling”. It’s more like opening my mouth very widely; remember, all this is going on while my face is twitching. So what I end up looking like is a creepy person with something creeping going on on her face.

3) To keep my twitching and smiling under control, I’ve noticed that I tend to bite on my lower left lip. I used to think that the lip biting was pretty subtle, but I have a picture that disproves it!

I’ve noticed that the above three take place when

1) I am answering a question in a class full of people who don’t know me;

2) unwanted attention (though positive) is on me;


3) I am talking to a boy.

2/3 of the above happened to me today. And you know what’s strange? I didn’t even want to talk to the boy! He started talking to me! But still, I got all twitchy like I normally do. Oh well, I guess it’s something that I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life.

(see pictures below for the evolution of my “twitching face” at my high school graduation.)
